    Lactic Acid

    Hi all! I know that this has been talked about so many times so forgive me for being repetitive, however I am still extremely confused on how to make a LA lotion and/or peel. I literally suck at math and I don?t understand how to break any of this down. Just for a quick background - I am trying to use this to target black stretch marks that I have on my waist and bottom area in time for a trip I have coming up in MAY!

    Can someone please please help me figure out how to make this lotion? Like, ?for dummies? style ? I have the following and would like to make a 17 or 18 % (or higher if I need to since my trip is coming soon) lotion and peel:

    - 10 oz of 90% Lactic Acid
    -16 oz of Gold Bond
    - A jar which can hold 10 oz of product, so I intend to make 10 oz of lotion.

    Can someone PLEASE help with getting me started? I?m so terrible at calculating measurements, etc.

    Sorry just seeing this......to make 10 ounces of lotion you would need to add 2.3 ounces of your lactic to make it 17%. @lo0ve

    Your very welcome! Don't let it overwhelm you once you make it a few times you will gain your confidence! We all had to start somewhere just be sure you mix it well so the lactic is evenly distributed.
