Alpha-Hydroxy Acid. Acid?! Yes.
Don't let the word "acid" scare you. Alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), in the right concentration is a good thing for your skin. You see, all AmLactin® moisturizers contain alpha-hydroxy acid therapy that's especially effective at gently exfoliating your skin. So in that sense an AHA does what you'd probably expect—it helps take away dead skin cells.
But the relief you've come to expect involves more than just exfoliation. Our formulas have the amazing ability to help you retain the moisture in your skin with creamy emollients that help make your skin feel soft and smooth. It is no wonder AmLactin® is the #1 moisturizer brand recommended by dermatologists for rough, dry skin.1
As an example of how the lactic acid in AmLactin® helps repair dry skin, in this case, dry skin associated with keratosis pilaris, take a few minutes to watch our video. While you can’t see it all happening beneath your skin, it’s interesting to know exactly how AmLactin® delivers a dry skin treatment with the kind of results AmLactin® Believers rave about.
