While many of our moisturisers will assist people with ichthyosis, we specifically recommend the Alpha Hydroxy High Potency Moisturiser for people with ichthyosis. This non-fragranced lotion feels cosmetically elegant while containing significant amounts (10%) of both urea and lactic acid. Our use of 10% urea enhances the ability of ichthyotic skin to retain water and 10% lactic acid improves the exfoliation of dead skin. Combined these two ingredients have proved useful for many people suffering from Ichthyosis.
Our Alpha Hydroxy High Potency Lotion was specifically designed to exfoliate dead skin and hydrate the underlying live skin layers
The top layer of the skin, called the stratum corneum, is made up of layers of flattened, dead skin cells. In normal skin, the stratum corneum renews itself at a constant rate; the cells on top are shed invisibly as new cells are generated. Ichthyosis can be described as a "traffic jam" of skin cells. The skin's natural shedding process is slowed or inhibited and, in some forms of ichthyosis, the production of skin cells is too rapid.
