Fermented from natural carbohydrates, PURAC HiPure could be considered ‘the body’s own Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), since lactic acid is exclusively produced by the metabolic conversion of glucose or glycogen in the body.
Specifically, the anti-aging effects of lactic acid come from its ability to stimulate exfoliation in the upper levels of the skin, nurture cell renewal, moisturize the skin, and increase dermal and epidermal thickness.
By stimulating cell renewal in the skin’s epidermis, PURAC HiPure helps create a smoother, younger looking skin, while also reducing skin pigmentation and thus enabling skin brightening and lightening.
Additionally, lactic acid has been shown to increase the thickness of the epidermis and the dermis, resulting in firmer skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
You can vary the efficacy of a formulation by changing the lactic acid concentration and pH. A lower pH and higher lactic acid concentration will boost anti-aging effects even more.
Our biobased products are safe to use, effective, multifunctional – and natural. Our portfolio helps maintain a smooth, radiant, younger looking skin with stimulating exfoliation and cell renewal or increasing dermal- and epidermal thickness in anti-aging formulations.
Sodium Lactate has the highest water-holding capacity - and has been shown to have a superior plasticizing effect on the stratum corneum compared to other well-known humectants.Read more
Lactic acid, lactates and bio-based emulsifiers are some of the most natural, safe, and cost-effective ingredients that formulators can use. Lactic acid and lactates are widely known for their moisturizing, anti-aging, sebum control, pH adjustment, and antimicrobial functions.Read more
