AmLactin Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care has launched AmLactin Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion, which contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and essential ceramides. The product is making its retail debut at select Walmart and Walgreens stores.
AmLactin Cerapeutic contains the brand's patented "Ultraplex" formula, which exfoliates and contains three skin identical ceramides that work together to strengthen skin's protective moisture barrier for softer, more resilient skin.
"Ceramides are naturally found in the skin's outer layer and help to retain moisture," said Dr. Doris Day, a dermatologist based in New York.
She explains, "The skin loses ceramides for a variety of reasons, such as too much time in water or exposure to harsh soaps. When ceramide levels are low, skin becomes vulnerable to environmental conditions and other irritants. With its unique combination of alpha-hydroxy acids and three essential ceramides, AmLactin Cerapeutic provides fast-acting, long-lasting relief from dryness while healing and replenishing skin."
