What Is The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% & What Does It Do?
This 10% Lactic Acid is a mild superficial peeling formulation. Lactic Acid is an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) which exfoliates the top surface of the skin. Like the red peel, the AHA 30% + BHA 2% and Glycolic Acid, this also has the Tasmanian pepper-berry which is known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity which can occur with exfoliation/use of acids. Once you have used the 5% Lactic Acid you could look at the 10% which is stronger.
Lactic Acid 10% is great for even tone, textural irregularities and fine lines. I personally love these Lactic Acids as they leave your skin feeling so smooth and soft.
The Ordinary Lactic Acid Targets
- Uneven tone
- Textural Irregularities
- Fine Lines
How & When Do I Use The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10%?
Lactic Acid is a water based product so if you have looked at the how to layer The Ordinary, page you will know that water based products are applied first and acids should be applied to cleansed, dry skin.
Add a couple of drops into the palm of your hands and apply to your face avoiding the eye area. Acids should really only be used in the evening because AHAs can make your skin sensitive to the sun. For more information about Lactic Acid including ingredients and precautions, please see The Ordinary website.
Which Products Conflict With Lactic Acid 10%?
Lactic Acid 10% shouldn’t be used in the same routine as any of the other acids listed under The Ordinary. You should also avoid the antioxidant EUK 134 plus the peptides; Buffet, Buffet + Copper Peptides, Matrixyl and Argireline. On the Deciem website it also says that L-Ascorbic Acid Powder shouldn’t be used with highly acidic products.
- The Ordinary Acids (check other brands you´re using)
- Antioxidant EUK 134
- Peptides: Buffet, Buffet + Copper Peptides, Matrixyl, Argireline
- Vitamin C L-Ascorbic Acid Powder & Ethylated Ascorbic Acid
Our rule against combining strong antioxidants only applies to our products containing copper peptides. We would not recommend combining direct acids with peptides due to the susceptibility of peptides to hydrolysis (which breaks the bonds between peptides, reducing their efficacy and making them into individual amino acids). At low pH, the peptides undergo processes such as deamidation (the removal of an amide group) and oxidation, which compromise the activity of the peptides.
Having said that, if you have previously combined peptides with acids and have not experienced any negative side effects or discoloration, you may continue to combine the two products as so as the combination does not pose any potential harm. Our recommendations are meant to serve as a preventative measure to avoid any incompatibility between those combinations and also because skin tolerance in subjective.
Can I use Lactic Acid 10% if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
Lactic Acid 5% is an AHA, Alpha Hydroxy Acid which is ok to use whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. As many countries vary, it is important to talk with your doctor and check the ingredients thoroughly.
Can I use Lactic Acid with Salicylic Acid?
Deciem say it´s best to use on alternate nights. You shouldn’t use Lactic Acid with any of the conflict products listed above.
Do I wash Lactic Acid off?
No, you apply to dry skin directly after cleansing and follow with your other products, no need to rinse off.
Should I try Lactic Acid 5% before 10%?
It´s recommended to start with 5% and build up to the 10%. From personal experience the 10% can sting a little.
Can the Lactic Acid be used in the same routine as buffet, Niacinamide and MAP?
Deciem say it is best to not use Peptides (“Buffet”) in the same routine as the following products: Direct acids and LAA (L-Ascorbic Acid) and ELAA (Ethylated Ascorbic Acid). It can however be used with Niacinamide and MAP

JMS says: Immediately broke my skin out and caused irritation. Its not for my skin but I’d love to hear some recommendations for a different exfoliant that might work better for me.
JH says: Absolutely love this! I dont know how people can get irritation with this. I have rosacea and had no bad reaction at all.
MR says: 1000% love it and i think it has made the biggest difference on my skin
KT says: I am on my second bottle and will continue to repurchase! After trying Sunday Riley good genes i figured out that my skin loves lactic acid. But I don’t love that price tag. TO 10% lactic acid is priced perfectly and does exactly what I need. I get a nice glow and my skin feels great 🙂
MMC says: This is one of my must-have Ordinary products, and I always keep a new bottle stocked so I don’t run out. I alternate this every other night with a retinoid. It removes any flaking/peeling skin from the retinoid beautifully, and leaves my skin smooth and glowing.
GB says: Made me red and irritated with big red spots after using it
