Lactic acid (synthesized from vegetables) is part of skin’s natural moisturizing factor, or NMF. It’s hydrating because of its unique structure that allows it to bind water within the skin. Because lactic acid strengthens the skin’s barrier by encouraging it to make more ceramides, a key component of healthy skin, it is often recommended for sensitive skin, although all skin types can use it. Lactic acid is also an antioxidant; it can suppress heavy metals that may be present in water, preventing them from attacking healthy cells and releasing collagen-degrading enzymes. Lactic acid also strongly influences the skin’s microbiome, helping to keep its first line of defense strong by positively interacting with a neuropeptide in the skin’s surface known as Substance P, resulting in quick diffusion of signs that the skin is stressed.
