AmLactin® Introduces Skin Care’s Newest “Power Couple”: Alpha-Hydroxy Acids and Ceramides

MAPLE GROVE, Minn. — March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care is proud to announce the introduction of AmLactin® Cerapeutic™ Restoring Body Lotion, formulated with skin care’s newest “power couple”— alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and essential ceramides. Making its retail debut at select Wal-Mart and Walgreens stores, AmLactin® Cerapeutic™ contains the intensely hydrating, patented ULTRAPLEX® formula to gently exfoliate, and three skin identical ceramides that work together to quickly strengthen skin’s protective moisture barrier for noticeably softer, more resilient skin.

“Ceramides are naturally found in the skin’s outer layer and help to retain moisture,” said New York Cosmetic Dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day. “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.”
