Lactacyd Liquid is a natural cleansing agent of 2 fundamental components:
✓Lactic Acid: Lactic acid is natural skin acid which contributes to skin acidity and protects the skin from bacterial invasions.
Together, lactic acid and lactoserum make Lactacyd Liquid the ideal skin cleanser because it cleanses the skin gently and thoroughly as it conserves the physiological pH of the skin. Lactacyd Liquid is gentle and protective of skin. It is recommended by doctors to cleanse the skin of infants soon after birth. Human skin is naturally acidic and must be kept acidic. This acidity provides the skin with protection against harmful bacteria and the loss of its natural oils and moisture. The normal and desirable skin pH ranges from 3.5-5.2. When the pH fluctuates beyond these levels, the skin loses its acidity and becomes alkaline. In this alkaline state, the skin loses its resistance against bacterial attacks and becomes susceptible to irritations, infections, even skin diseases. The skin also loses its natural oils and moisture that keep it soft, smooth and supple. By their very nature, ordinary bath soaps contain washing sodas are alkaline. Being alkaline, soaps alter the skin's normal pH from acidic to alkaline and this renders the skin susceptible to harmful bacterial attacks. To make matters worse, ordinary soaps also contain synthetic ingredients eg, heavy perfumes, detergents which are alkaline and colouring agents which may aggravate the problem.
