AmLactin® Sheds Its Skin to Reveal a Fresh, New Look

Press Release

MAPLE GROVE, Minn. – March 19, 2012 – AmLactin®, the #1 moisturizer brand recommended by Dermatologists for rough, dry skin, is donning a fresh, new look while bringing dry skin sufferers the same effective, hard-working formulas. The makeover comes with a new family name: AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care.  The contemporary design graces white, pearlescent bottles and tubes complemented by a series of vibrant colors and a signature droplet to convey the line’s intensity and success at helping skin retain its moisture.


“We have transformed the AmLactin® packaging to convey a contemporary look and feel that appeals to women interested in beautifying their dry skin,” said Jim Hughes, Vice President, Marketing at Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc.  “Our goal is to attract 21st century women seeking innovative skin care solutions while maintaining our scientific heritage as a serious, intense moisturizer.”


AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care includes AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream for severe dry skin and AmLactin® Foot Cream. All three products contain alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) moisturizers, which are effective at exfoliating and hydrating the skin. AmLactin® formulas also contain emollients and humectants that help retain the skin’s natural moisture and draw water to the skin so it looks and feels soft and smooth.  AmLactin® is available in a variety of sizes and formulas to meet the varying moisturizing needs of women.  They include:


  • AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion – an everyday body lotion for rough, dry skin. It is specially formulated with clinically proven 12% lactic acid and is pH-balanced for the skin to gently encourage natural skin cell renewal through exfoliation, creating a soft, smooth texture. It is available in four sizes:

7.9 ounce bottle with press-cap

 14.1 ounce bottle with pump

17.6 ounce bonus bottle with pump (seasonal)

20 ounce bonus size only available at Costco

  • AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream (formerly AmLactin XL ®) – specially formulated for severe, persistently dry skin areas that need extra attention. It contains the patented ULTRAPLEX® formula that gently exfoliates and is clinically proven to intensely hydrate for long-lasting moisture. With rich humectants and creamy emollients, AmLactin® Ultra provides serious relief and is available in a 4.9 ounce tube with a flip-top cap.
  • AmLactin® Foot Cream – a clinical-strength foot cream for rough, dry, and callused feet.
