Lactic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid. It is a normal constituent of tissues and blood. The alpha-hydroxy acids (and their salts) are felt to act as humectants when applied to the skin. This property may influence hydration of the stratum corneum. In addition, lactic acid, when applied to the skin, may act to decrease corneocyte cohesion. The mechanism(s) by which this is accomplished is not yet known.
Sun exposure to areas of the skin treated with Ammonium Lactate Cream, 12% should be minimized or avoided. Use of this product should be discontinued if hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients is noted.
