Alpha Hydrox has created a very good fragrance-free AHA moisturizer designed to smooth and soften dry, cracked feet. With 12% glycolic acid formulated at an effective pH of 4, you will see improvement in dry, rough skin. The emollient formula is rather basic but certainly capable of providing sustained moisture (and since this is for the feet, it's OK that it doesn't contain a bunch of bells and whistles you'd want in a facial moisturizer). This is worth strong consideration given that it really works and so many foot creams simply subject skin to needless irritants and do little about the unsightly buildup of dry, dead skin that makes women dread sandal season.

12% AHA Extra Strength Treatment; Recommended for: Dry, rough, damaged skin. Not for delicate/sensitive skin. Fragrance-free. Absorbs quickly. Effective pH 4.

Water, Petrolatum, Glycolic Acid, Glycerin, Ammonium Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Dimethicone, Mineral Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Lanolin Alcohol, PEG-40 Stearate, Sorbitan Stearate, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

Known primarily for their well-formulated AHA products, Alpha Hydrox got an impressive image update recently. Although the improvements were more visual and packaging-related than formulary-driven, the fact remains that Alpha Hydrox has a formidable range of effective AHA products, all with definitively researched glycolic acid. Kudos to the company for continuing to be direct about the AHA content (and pH) of their exfoliants, something most other lines selling AHA products prefer to keep a mystery. Should the folks behind this brand choose to go back to the drawing board once again, they would do well to reconsider their current jar packaging if they intend to keep adding antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients to their efficacious but still predominantly basic products. Until then, you can rely on Alpha Hydrox for supplying AHA products that really work, and a few other surprises too, all affordably priced and readily available.

    The best foot cream ever
    • This has to be the most effective and least expensive foot cream I have ever used. I am on my second tube and am so thrilled to find one that actually works. My heels used to be dry and somewhat cracked and now they are very soft and all cracks are gone. I put it on my feet at night and put a pair of socks on to help it sink in. In less than a month my feet were 100% better.
