Lactobionic acid is glycolic acid’s younger cousin if you wish, with a different structure and the size of its particle making it quite unique. It has similar effect on the skin as glycolic acid, as it controls exfoliation process, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and increases the production of hyaluronic acid in the dermis. Yet, what makes it different from traditional acids is its mildness, as it soothes instead of irritating the skin.
On application it does not cause itching, burning, or redness. Its additional advantage are its strongly hydrating, regenerating qualities, its ability to relieve skin irritation, redness and inflammation, as well as to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier. It has been proven to be appropriate and even beneficial for skin suffering from atopic dermatitis and rosacea. As a potent antioxidant and metal chelator, it slows down natural skin aging and photoaging. It inhibits metalloproteinases thereby preventing telangiectasias and loss of suppleness. Most importantly, it does not cause increased photosensitivity, hence lactobionic acid-based peels and other beauty products are perfectly suitable for year-round use.
Owing to all the properties listed above, lactobionic therapy should find its place on your list of summertime salon treatments, and in your daily skin care routine. For summertime exfoliation, Lactobionic Acid Serum and Lactobionic Boost Mask will not disappoint. The serum contains 15% acid, a recommended concentration that has been found medically effective.
