About AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care
AmLactin® moisturizers contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), 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. The AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care line includes AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream for severe dry skin (formerly AmLactin XLÒ) and AmLactin® Foot Cream.
AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream is specially formulated for severe, persistently dry skin areas that need extra attention. It contains the advanced, 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.
