Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FERULIC BREW?
In just 7 days, Ferulic Brew Facial Treatment boosts glow, smoothes texture, and reduces fine lines & wrinkles.* Ferulic Brew also provides antioxidant protection.
CAN I USE GLYCOLIC ACID AND LACTIC ACID TOGETHER?
Yes. However, since both are AHAs, consider one in the AM and the other in PM out of concern for possible sensitivity and barrier disruption. Additionally, we recommend avoiding sun exposure and always finishing your routine with SPF.
CAN I USE VITAMIN C AND LACTIC ACID TOGETHER?
Yes. In fact, applying Vitamin C after using Lactic Acid will ensure protection of newly exposed skin cells from free radical and oxidative damage.
IS LACTIC ACID AN AHA?
Yes. Lactic Acid is a unique AHA because of its affinity to skin and its strengthening, hydrating and pH balancing qualities. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are a group of natural acids found in sugar, milk, fruit, and other sources that work by exfoliating dead skin cells on skin’s surface. Within our formula, AHAs can help smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin texture and tone over time. Common AHAs found in skincare can include glycolic acid (found in sugar cane), citric acid (found in citrus fruits), lactic acid (found in milk), malic acid (found in apples), tartaric acid (found in grapes), and others.
IS THIS PRODUCT SAFE TO USE WHILE PREGNANCY?
While every ingredient we use in our products is evaluated for safety, we do not specifically test our products on women who are pregnant or nursing. Kiehl's ensures there is substantial information supporting the safety of our products when used as directed by consumers. However, as there could be certain ingredients that physicians may not recommend for use during pregnancy and nursing, we always recommend that you discuss this with your physician and follow their advice.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MILK PEEL AND FERULIC ESSENCE?
Milk Peel is a toner used with a cotton pad that hydrates with emollients while exfoliating with LHA. Ferulic Brew is a leave-on treatment applied with palms of hands that can be used as either a liquid serum or pre-serum treatment to enhance a routine. Both Milk Peel Toner and Ferulic Brew Facial Treatment are for all skin types, even sensitive skin. However, Milk Peel is ideal for more dry or compromised skin types.
