Lauric Acid isn’t a chemical exfoliant like AHA’s or BHA’s, but rather a fatty acid found in ingredients like coconut oil to add moisturizing properties. So if you’re avoiding chemical exfoliants no worries about this ingredient as it’s just there to moisturize the skin! Studies have also shown that it might have microbial properties. It’s known for the slight bay leaf scent that it gives off.
Benefits: Lauric acid is a one stop hydration stop.
Skin Types: Dry skin and complexions with conditions will love lauric acid.
