Hi Gigi, thank you for the question.
This is difficult to answer as one would need to know the ingredients used to accurately answer which acid was used. Would it be possible to submit a new question with the name of the product as this may help in finding the actual ingredients used.
The most common superficial acid used in a face wash or as a gentle ‘exfoliator’ and that typically does not react with sensitive skin is glycolic acid.
