    @ebony844 what % are you wanting to dilute it down too? Also, in order to dilute it you will need "distilled water" not tap water, not bottle water, not purified water but "distilled water" But tell me the % you want and I will gladly walk you through it.

    Same with me. I am experiencing darkening too from the 12% GA ALPHA SKINCARE LOTION. But I am also seeing some peeling and a bit of flaky skin on a closer look. I guess it has the opposite effect on darker skin, because on white skin it would lighten quick. I think it's because darker skin is thicker and oilier than white skin, therefore we produce more and quicker dead skin cells that take time to come off.

    Hey guys! I want to add LA solution to my Amlactin (big bottle, 567g) to raise the LA from 12% to 15%. I live in the UK and can’t find 88% or 90% LA. I can only find 80%. I want to know if I add 80% LA to the Amlactin would it still be effective?

    And if the answer is yes, how many teaspoons should I add please?

    40% LA peel is safe for the face.

    Yes....you will need to add 7 1/2 tablespoons to raise it up to 15%. You will have to take the lotion out of the container mix it up well with the LA, then put into another container or back in its original container. Pouring it in and shaking it won't mix it up properly.
