 Lactic Acid Clinical Results Report


You might be wondering what lactic acid is, how it benefits the skin, and how it can be vegan. We’re here to break down all of that (and more).

Lactic Acid: Lactic acid is a gentle but powerful alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and the true hero of our Resurfacing Night Serum. Our unique lactic acid is made from a traceable vegan source—fermented sugar—and is included at 10%, the optimal amount for efficacy and safe, nightly use. You can thank our lactic acid for that coveted, fresh-faced glow as it amps up cellular turnover to reveal your softest, most radiant skin ever.  

Clover: Our clover rewinds the effects of environmental factor damage we encounter daily. UV rays, electronic blue light and pollution can fast forward the signs of aging, so it’s important to counteract their impact with a renewing ingredient like clover. Clover also aids in cell turnover as you sleep.   

SqualaneLong-lasting moisture your body naturally recognizes is crucial to maintaining a healthy skin barrier, which is why squalane is a foundational ingredient of this product (and all Biossance products). Our sustainable, Brazilian sugarcane-derived squalane maintains moisture levels and counteracts against the potentially drying effects of AHAs.  

Lavender: This soothing, relaxing scent promotes feelings of calmness and tranquility. It makes applying the Resurfacing Night Serum a lovely sensorial experience as you wind down and your skin revs up for its nighttime renewal cycle. 


Beauty sleep is a real thing. Our skin is in protection mode during the day, fending off environmental damage. At night, it switches into repair mode, signaling to your body that it’s ready to strengthen and support cells compromised from daily damage. Skin treatments are typically reserved for nighttime use to maximize their effects during the after-dark renewal cycle. The Resurfacing Night Serum takes full advantage of this crucial time and works overtime as you rest up. The best part? You can bask in your renewed glow as soon as the sun rises. 


Adding the Resurfacing Night Serum to any existing routine is simple. We recommend incorporating it at night after using an eye cream (try our Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream) or eye gel (try our Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel), but before a face moisturizer/oil. Our Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum can be used in the morning and complements the nighttime use of the Squalane + Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum. Consider this duo as your one-two punch for around-the-clock renewal and repair.

My industry experience includes years as a beauty editor and leading content for a wide range of skincare and makeup brands. Those experiences led me to Biossance—I was introduced to the brand on an editor press trip in 2017 and instantly fell in love. I toured the labs, created my own 100% Squalane with essential oils, and noticed a dramatic difference in my skin by introducing clean products (especially the Vitamin C Rose Oil) to my regimen. I’m excited to be on this journey with Biossance and be at the forefront of clean beauty innovation.

We’re here to provide clean beauty that’s better for you and the planet. Our sustainable star ingredient, squalane, is nature’s best moisturizer—it’s a powerfully effective head-to-toe hydrator—but its sister, squalene, has a complex sourcing story.  Our scientists were determined to create a clean, sustainable and ethical squalene alternative. They discovered a way to bioengineer this mega-moisturizer as safely and effectively as the body does—we call it squalane. It’s made from sugarcane, a renewable resource, saving millions of sharks every year.
