About Alpha-hydroxy Lotion



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.

Body Lotion

Our body lotion contains 10% Urea but only 5% Alpha Hydroxy Acids so that it is gentler on the skin. It is ideal for those sufferers who find Alpha Hydroxy lotion a little to strong for sensitive skin.

Extra strength Body Lotion's nourishing 10% urea formula helps relieve dry, rough problem skin. Urea is an important part of health skin's natural moisturising system. Urea causes the skin cell deep down below the surface to attract, absorb and hold moisture better. Alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate old dry skin to reveal new revived looking skin, which is more elastic. Silk proteins improve skin tone proving a silky . smooth non greasy feel.
