About this book
This book describes the synthesis, properties, and processing methods of poly(lactic acid) (PLA), an important family of degradable plastics. As the need for environmentally-friendly packaging materials increases, consumers and companies are in search for new materials that are largely produced from renewable resources, and are recyclable. To that end, an overall theme of the book is the biodegradability, recycling, and sustainability benefits of PLA. The chapters, from a base of international expert contributors, describe specific processing methods, spectroscopy techniques for PLA analysis, and and applications in medical items, packaging, and environmental use.

About this book
While lactic acid-producing fermentation has long been used to improve the storability, palatability, and nutritive value of perishable foods, only recently have we begun to understand just why it works. Since the publication of the third edition of Lactic Acid Bacteria: Microbiological and Functional Aspects, substantial progress has been made in a number of areas of research. Completely updated, the Fourth Edition covers all the basic and applied aspects of lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria, from the gastrointestinal tract to the supermarket shelf. Topics discussed in the new edition include: Revised taxonomy due to improved insights in genetics and new molecular biological techniques New discoveries related to the mechanisms of lactic acid bacterial metabolism and function An improved mechanistic understanding of probiotic functioning Applications in food and feed preparation Health properties of lactic acid bacteria The regulatory framework related to safety and efficacy Maintaining the accessible style that made previous editions so popular, this book is ideal as an introduction to the field and as a handbook for microbiologists, food scientists, nutritionists, clinicians, and regulatory experts.

    Works better than promised!

    I was nervous to purchase this product because the majority of reviews on here are from people who received the product at discount or free to give a review; those weren't credible reviews to me. I couldn't find anything with a stronger LA percentage and after a bit of research I decided to go for it. This product works great! I am a mixed race girl with medium brown skin. I bought this product for skin lightening and acne scar correction.The directions are very clear and concise. Other than the product you just need cotton balls and some baking soda on stand by. After you wash your face as usual, apply this, let sit 2 mins, wash off, apply your toner and moisturizer. Keep baking soda on standby in case it starts to burn (it should barely tingle, but not burn). This is best to use at night and make sure you wear sun screen in the morning. Make sure you follow the directions exactly. This product is acid; it can and will burn if misused.Your skin will peel for... 5/5 Parker - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Peel!

    5/5 Brenna - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ASDM Beverly Hills 90% Lactic Acid Medical Strength, 2oz (Health and Beauty) Use this peel every other week. I am pleased with this one but it is quite strong, so be prepared to rinse with your baking soda water. Over the years I have used a peel of different types and strengths. I always use a cotton ball to apply the acid to my clean dry skin and immediately put baking soda in the sink and add water so I can be ready to splash water on my face to nutrilize the acid. I also wet a cloth with the baking soda water to dab my face for a few minutes after. I've never been able to leave it on for more than minutes. Remember I have been using peels for years. So start out with something milder. For me at this level it helps keep the age spots away and my lines are few. I am in my late 50's.

    5/5 TC (san diego, ca) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: ASDM Beverly Hills 90% Lactic Acid Medical Strength, 2oz (Health and Beauty) A little scary - That's how strong this is!I have been using 30% and built up to leaving it on around 10 minutes.I probably should not have gone straight to 90% so I mixed my remaining 30% with this 90% to get used to using it.It definitely leaves my face brighter, and reduces lines immediately. My skin is soft and I look younger.The results are obvious and VERY noticeable. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 27, 2016

    Worth the price

    5/5 Keith88 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Intense Repair 88% Lactic Acid Skin Peel with Free Fan Brush - Unbuffered Professional Grade - Revive Sun Damaged Skin Quickly (Misc.) I've tried numerous peels (jessners, tca10-30%) glycolic 40, and other brands of lactic in 30%. I've seen results with all of them but none that have targeted my post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation like this one! I applied it and waited the entire 10mins( not recommended for first time users). The next morning after showering, I noticed a thick layer of skin had peeled on my cheeks and t-zone. Slight peeling around neck area. I mean it shed like snake skin. I like the fact that the solution had a thicker consistency than most peels. Really helped with ingrown hair bumps... Will continue to buy only this product.

    LA lotion use only

    5/5 Kayla (Cali love) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Intense Repair 88% Lactic Acid Skin Peel with Free Fan Brush - Unbuffered Professional Grade - Revive Sun Damaged Skin Quickly (Misc.) I am only using this as a Lactic Acid lotion, I have not used it alone :) I have been using it for about 2 weeks now, twice a day. After I make my own lotion, I remove about 1/4 cup and add 2 teaspoons of this acid to it. I get very slight peeling and I'm sure it's because my measurements are a bit light, however my skin is still soft and I KNOW that it is working. Maybe next time I'll add another .5 tsp to my lotion to give it a greater peel effect, but I'm happy that I didn't just "dive" into acid peels since I am still very new to it all.

    5/5 Lexie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Alpha Hydroxy Acid - 16oz Spa Size (Health and Beauty) Seriously, if you want a good skin cream in an easy-pump dispenser @ a great price, buy this. After spending 3-4 times as much on more expensive creams, I bought this for the ease of using a pump jar. My skin is like velvet. I am a nurse practitioner with multiple allergies & my skin is "touchy" but it loves this. I also was tired of dropping & squeezing tubes of cream, or digging fingers into jars (NOT sanitary). This pump jar is the bomb. I will definitely be purchasing more. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 16, 2015

    Does help with ppp!!!

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Alpha Hydroxy Acid - 16oz Spa Size (Health and Beauty) I bought this product because it was recommended for ppp when I searched ppp removal on google. I wasn't a believer until I seen the results for myself. The way I used it was using it when I went to sleep, when i woke up, and when i came home in the afternoon. I also used goldbond powder and healing lotion with it. You may want to change your underwear to boxers if you're wearing any other type due to moisture in the area. I did all this and I no longer have ppp thanks to these products. I dont even have a single scar. I would suggest this to anyone who has the same problem. Remember this does not work overnight. You have to keep up with this in order to get rid of it. And please dont waste your money on that ppp removal with two canisters of "special medicine". It is a complete waste trust me I tried it.

    Perfect for Beginners

    This is a great product. This percentage of Lactic Acid is the best for beginners such as myself. This actually burns the first few times of use despite myself already having used heavy exfoliation products such as Kojic Acid before. This still burned somewhat and that was a sign that it was working. After removing it I could see a significant difference in my skin. It was a little clearer and in terms of pigmentation. It was more even. I used this product a week later and did this for a few weeks. A few weeks in, I noticed it wasn't making much of a difference anymore so I thought that I was ready for a stronger peel. I did not want to waste this one though, so I used it again and this time went over three minutes which is the recommended maximum time. I noticed after that there were some red rash-pimple looking things on my skin. I realized that this was due to the burning as it faded a few days later until it was completely gone. It wasn't really a big problem and it was my fault... 5/5 SA13 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
