  1. Paula

    Another product I am very ecstatic about and so happy to have found it in Canada and not have to have it shipped from the US! It mixes wonderfully with the creams and lotions from Saffire Blue, as well as other lotions I had onhand. I don’t notice any smell from this lactic acid either which is a bonus! I love the fact that I can now make my own lactic acid lotion and not have to spend a fortune for the premade ones at the store! Very happy customer!!

  2. Trecia

    Great product. Started using it in my moisturizer a few weeks ago and I can already feel the smoothness in my skin.

  3. Cadine

    I browsed online for lactic acid and this website was the most affordable and the only company located in Canada. I appreciate that there are many options for payment and that the whole process of ordering and shipping was very timely. There are quite a number of other products that I’m looking forward to ordering from this company!

    I actually use this for my lactic acid peels. Once a week, i dilute it with water and leave on my face for about 3 – 4 minutes. IT has drastically reduced the hyperpigmentation on my face. This little bottle will last me forever as i only use about 1 tbsp a week. Will try with my own lotion!

  5. Doina

    This is a great product! I diluted it with distilled water and used it as a peel, it works wonderfully for diminishing the appearance of closed comedones and tightening pores. You don’t need to use a lot so a small bottle will certainly last a while. This is a great price compared to most peels (especially if you live in Canada). Service was prompt and delivery was fast, overall I’m very pleased with my purchase and will buy again!

  6. Brenda

    I used this product for face peel and was thrilled. Cost was excellent quality great quantity. Will buy more delivery prompt and packaging great. I think my skin has never looked this good. I am 50 now. The is clear semi thick liquid that will pour off end of spoon. It worked in my formulation. Worked for personal use. Loved it. Thanks Saffire Blue. Will purchase more.
