CERTIFIED Lactic Acid Peel 50%
Free Acid Value = 50 *Learn about FAV here.
This lactic peel is of the buffered variety. Buffering raises the pH level of the acid so that it does not work too quickly. A higher pH level will slow-down the action of the acid and is thus safer. This 50% lactic peel is perfect for at-home usage. Lactic is a great choice for those dealing with aging and pigmented skin. Lactic Acid will exfoliate the outer surface of the skin and encourage new cell turnover. It is a natural humectant, pulling moisture from the collagen levels to the surface of skin.
Chemical peels are great for use as:
- Anti aging treatments
- Acne treatments
- Scar treatments
- Refreshening of the skin.
If you are searching for these general types of skin improvements, then lactlic is the acid choice for you. Lactic is great for:
- Photoaging (fine lines, not course wrinkles).
- Mild-medium sun damage.
- Looking for deeper hydration
- Gentle exfoliation - little to no visible flaking.
If you are on the sensitive side, you will really enjoy lactic acid. It has a very large molecule that will make the peel experience more pleasant. This treatment is relatively non-irritating with very little, if any, down time. Our Lactic acid peel has been enhanced with a "skin lightening" and " anti-aging" cocktail of herbal remedies. Contra-Indications: Milk Allergies If you are ready to move to a stronger acid, our TCA 13 is another excellent choice for pigmentation and antiaging with more peeling.

Broke Me Out 2
Posted by Ashley on
I had previously left another review but was mistaken in that the capped bottle that had spilled was the prep solution, not the Lactic Acid (I had not touched the bottle in so long that I had forgotten how it looked like, so feel free to take that down). I used this peel for the second or third time a few days ago and broke out in whiteheads on my cheeks days after, despite the fact that with my normal routine, I never break out there or get whiteheads. I think this product caused the similar whiteheads that appeared immediately after my initial use, too, except I didn't suspect it at the time because I had been breaking out from a new lotion I had been trying. There is not much of a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin, so the breakout to me is not worth it.
Only Got Half of Product 1
Posted by ashley on
I purchased this for gentler exfoliation and moisturization because I have dry skin and build up. I liked it the first time I used it but unfortunately, my bottle was designed quite poorly so when it fell over in my drawer (capped tightly) half of it spilled. $20 of product gone just like that. Plastic Container much cheaper than other brands that sell peels. Would not recommend

This peel is FANTASTIC!!! It has really helped with my skin discoloration due to acne scarring. I am African American and my skin is more even in tone, I've been using once a week for a month..... Just ordered more, this time I'm getting one for my grandmother too.

I have never ever had a reaction to a facial product in all my 60+ years until I used this Lactic Acid 50 Peel. My face and neck is covered in large itchy red blotches that have a scabby cover. After 3 weeks of trying to fix this problem at home I finally saw a dermatologist who determined there was something in this product causing a severe allergic reaction. I have NEVER been allergic to any product. So please, be careful, and think what the consequences of using this product might be. **(((Platinum Comment))) ** We have tried numerous times to contact this client to find out what her allergy was to. We take Extreme Pride in our product formulations in that they are safe and effective. It is very common for people to have allergies to specific ingredients. This does not mean that this is an inferior product of any sorts. It just means that this client has an irritation to an ingredient. **The BEST part of this scenario would be for her to find out exactly WHAT ingredient she is allergic to, then she can move forward with confidence as she shops for new/different skin care products (and avoid the ingredient that bothers her). ***Remember too, that people can Develop new allergies to products they have used for years. Always test a peel by performing a "patch test" in an area. Then monitor it for a reaction for 24 hours. If everything seems well, then you can proceed with your peel. Thank you,
PRODUCTS @ PLATNUM 5

I just recieved my second order from Platnum and love their products. They are packaged beautifully. The orders came quickly and are accurate. I am 46 yrs of age and not new to skin treatments and peels. After spending thousands on peels I ventured out to attempt them on my own. I was afraid at first to order online, but found I could possibly trust Platnum after reading a lot of positive reviews. I am pleased with the company all the way around. I have tried the TCA Peel 30%, Glycolic Peel 50%, Lactic Acid, Enzyme mask, along with the neutralizers preps for these. I've also tried the Emu oil, the toner and cleanser in glycolic form. The products give me the same results as I get at spas. I recommend this company to family, friends and anyone who will listen. HAPPY girl! And btw, I don't have a single wrinkle, not one! I get a lot of compliments on my skin (even at this age).
AWESOME PRODUCT 5

I don't know what I would do without my peels from platinum, I am in my 30's and still have acne like a teenager, I have used all types of topical perscription creams and antibiotics over the years and the peels from platinum have been the only thing to keep my skin looking good. I switch between the lactic and TCA, I high recommend using any of these peels based on your skin type and concern. I'm on a budget so peels at the spa are not affordable, here you get multiple uses from one bottle. Just make sure you follow the directions and my skin is now beautiful!
