Don't let the word "acid" scare your patients. Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), in the right concentration and pH balanced for the skin, are a good thing. All AmLactin® moisturizers contain alpha-hydroxy therapy that's especially effective at gently exfoliating.
We believe your patients will be more likely to have a successful outcome if they understand the science behind an alpha-hydroxy cream or lotion.

This simple video spotlights dry skin associated with keratosis pilaris (“KP”), which you are aware is a very common condition that affects an astounding 40 percent of adults1. The video demonstrates the exfoliating properties of the AmLactin® alpha-hydroxy therapy.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to sunburn. Be sun smart: use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterward.
