Control Corrective - Lactic-C Firming Cream / 6 oz.

Lactic acid, an easily absorbed alpha hydroxy acid, increases skin’s water holding capacity, thereby plumping up the surface and enhancing elasticity.

Featured Actives:
  • Lactic Acid 5% - An alpha hydroxy acid derived from sour milk, lactic acid has been used for centuries to relieve dry, aged skin. Lactic acid has better water intake than glycerin and studies report that lactic acid has an ability to increase the water-holding capacity of the corneum layer as well as improve the elasticity of the skin. Clinical studies report that lactic acid concentrations between 5% and 12% offer an improvement in softening the skin and refining wrinkles. Lactic acid is less irritating on sensitive or dry skin than some of the other AHA ingredients.

  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice - Known for its anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties. Aloe Vera is made up of the most precious substances of our own skin, enzymes, vitamins, proteins, and minerals that support all our skins functions and activate the skin’s self-healing qualities. Aloe Vera helps maintain the skins moisture balance and stimulates blood circulation. It has been used to calm and soothe burns and irritations, and it moisturizes.

  • Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) - A stable and bio-available form of topical Vitamin C, sodium ascorbyl phosphate helps prevent oxidizing damage. It is capable of controlling inflammatory responses associated with UV exposure (which is seen as the cause of damage that eventually leads to wrinkling and skin cancer), and is well known as an antioxidant that promotes collagen synthesis. Stabilized Vitamin C offers skin-lightening effects and anti-inflammatory benefits, actually passing through the layers of the skin and promoting healing of tissue that has been damaged from burns or injury.

  • Vitamin E (Tocopherol Acetate) - An antioxidant found in essential oils and vegetable oils. A natural form of Vitamin E, tocopherol, when applied topically, is absorbed through the ski. It is attributed with reducing skin pigmentation, decreasing functioning of the sebaceous glands, increasing water retention in the skin, and serving as a super antioxidant and free radical scavenger. It is also helpful as a UV protectant as it combats the lipid per oxidation effect of sun damage and environmental pollution.

  • Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate) - This essential vitamin for the skin favors tissue growth, helping improve the skin smoothness, firmness and texture. Applied topically, Vitamin A helps prevent scaling and dryness. Once Vitamin A esters enter the skin, they convert to retinoic acid and provide rejuvenation benefits as well as helping the skin fight off infection. An excellent aid in healing of damaged skin tissue.

  • Sodium Hyaluronate - Serves as a high-performance humectant as it increases the skin moisture content 1,800 times its own weight in water. Hyaluronic acid is found in the dermis and helps the epidermis achieve greater suppleness. When applied to the skin, sodium hyaluronate acid forms a film to hold the water in a matrix of tissue making it ideal for dry, dehydrated skin and aiding in the delivery of other active ingredients to the skin.

  • Thioctic Acid - This acid is highly regarded as a “universal” antioxidant because it is both lipid and water-soluble. Thioctic acid can scavenge a large amount of free radicals and is excellent for effective penetration. This ingredient also works in a synergistic way with other antioxidants (such as Vitamin A and E) to enhance their benefits.
