I had bought some lactic acid to make this lotion. I have KP and have found this same recipe in a few forums. I'm anxious to try it out.

Ingredients:
2.5 tsp 88% lactic acid
1/4 cup + 2 tsp of CeraVe or preferred base lotion
3 big drops germaben or 6 small ones (if you have one of those 1 ml droppers it is 6)

This makes a 12% lactic acid lotion using 88% lactic acid. The math was already done by the creator.

It went well! I used it for my super legs and heels as well as my arms. You should try it out!

I ended up making my own base and I had to add the lactic acid, water and emulsifier together then added the oils to the mixture. If you add the lactic acid to the oil/water/emulsifier mix, it got watery.

Thanks for posting!

So you could use this just for dry skin right? I don´t have KP.
And where did you get the lactic acid if I may ask?

definately you can use on dry skin.
88% lactic acid I got at Lotioncrafters. They also carry emulsifiers too so you can make easy lotions and creams.
