I have a tube and want to use it to my benifit
Ammonium Lactate is not recommended for the face because of its potential to cause irritation. See https://www.drugs.com/mtm/ammonium-lactate-topical.html
I'm starting to use it right now. It's a little sticky so, it may be only ok for nighttime use since I'm not sure how foundation would wear on top of it.
There are other face chemical exfoliators that use 10, 12%. So, if your skin has been able to use those other products, I don't know why this would cause irritation unless you're sensitive to mineral oil, which is often in these creams.
If you haven't used a dosage that high before,,you might want to work up to it.
FYI. I'm also using Cerave cream for psoriasis because it has 2% Salacylic acid. I use it only around my T-zone.
