Lactic Acid is in the form of a thick, colorless liquid with a characteristic sour taste. It is obtained as a by-product of a process known as bacterial fermentation of sugar, corn starch or milk whey. In the human body, Lactic Acid occurs in the muscle cells and red blood cells when the body is exercising intensively.
Lactic Acid also plays an important role as a nutrient and central metabolite for many organisms. It is soluble in water, alcohol and propylene glycol. It has preservative and antibacterial properties. Lactic Acid also has properties that are used in the cosmetics industry – at concentrations between 1 and 10% it has moisturizing properties. In the 30-50% range, however, it has an exfoliating effect.
