AmLactin moisturizer VS Eucerin???

5 posts in this topic

I found a moisturizer called Amlactin and it has 12% Lactic acid with no SPF. I have a hard time using SPF and have been looking for a moisturizer like Dan recomends but without the SPF. I do like the Eucerin but the SPF has caused some issues. Has anyone heard of or used Amlacton? Did you like it?

I haven't heard of it. Where can you find it? If you do decide to give it a try, definetly leave us a review! I know the Eucerin a lot of us use is being discontinued, so I'm thinking about trying an alternative also.

I found this at Costco (used to be Price Club) but have seen it on eBay. I am not sure how I feel about buying lotion from eBay that is going on my face??? I used it last night and it seems to work well but I don't want to say anything either way at least for a week. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, if anyone else has heard of it or used it....please post your thoughts on AmLactin. THank you.

It is also available at drugstore.com and a lot of other online pharms. I emailed them to ask if this could be used on the face, but it I think it can, it has been rated here:

I emailed the makers of AmLactin to ask their ingredient list, and whether this could/should be used on the face, this is their response:

1. AMLACTIN 12% Lotion can be used on the face twice daily; however,

caution must be used to avoid contact with the lips, mouth, eyes, and

nares. Also, facial skin tends to be more sensitive as compared to

skin on

other areas of the body, so a mild irritation or rash is more likely to

occur. If an irritation or rash occurs and are bothersome and/or

persistant, discontinue use and consult a physician. In addition,

unnecessary sun exposure should be avoided and use of a sunscreen is

recommended.

2. A list of ingredients can be found on the AMLACTIN 12% Lotion

labeling

and are as follows: water, lactic acid neutralized with ammonium

hydroxide,

light mineral oil, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, propylene

glycol,

glycerin, magnesium aluminum silicate, laureth-4, polyoxyl 40 stearate,

cetyl alcohol, methyl and propyl parabens (preservatives) and

methylcellulose.

Anybody see any real bad ingredients in there? My face doesn't get overly dry or flakey even without moistureizer.
