Beginners Exfoliating Serum - 5% Lactic Acid + 1.5% Probiotic

Lactic acid (AHA) is a mild and gentle exfoliant that works to exfoliate dead skin cells from the face gently to make the skin smooth and even the skin’s texture. There is 1% Hyaluronic Acid as added humectant that will hydrate and brighten the skin, whereas 1.5% probiotic will retain the natural microbes of the skin and strengthen the skin barrier. This unique combination of lactic acid, probiotics and hyaluronic acid, will help to boost cell turnover and remove dead skin cells without causing any irritation.

Why is this different?

A rare combination of Lactic acid and Probiotic  in lactic acid exfoliating serum works effectively on skin texture, skin tone and brightens the skin, along with improving the skin barrier. There is added Hyaluronic Acid to provide hydration to the skin. This exfoliating and hydrating combo works well to gently exfoliate the upper layer of skin, while hydrating the skin. The less concentration of AHA and probiotic is perfect for people with sensitive or dry skin.

How Does it Work on the Skin?

  • 1.5% Probiotics (Lactococcus Ferment Lysate) fights microbes and foreign particles and also balances skin pH and hydration.
  • 1% Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the skin and gives a subtle glow to the skin

Based on 36 reviews

I was new to this combination and when I consulted with customercare of deconstruct, they were very kind enough to know my skin concerns and suggested products accordingly. This product is very good for beginners and it didn't give me any irritation.


I was recommended this product by a skin specialist and I'm glad it worked out so well on my skin

Nice beginner friendly serum

This was my first time trying a leave in AHA. The formulation is gentle and effective. Did not give any bad reaction. It is good for tiny bumps and I have noticed sometimes they go away in a single use. My chin area has stubborn white heads which flare up in the days leading to my periods. For those bumps I feel I need something more strong or I should use this serum more often in that area (like thrice a week. Currently I am using it twice a weak). Overall I am satisfied with this product.


Best for beginners. Go for it 🙌
