AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion is a boring body lotion that uses a high amount of the AHA lactic acid to soften dry, rough skin. You’d think that the 12% amount of ammonium lactate would promote exfoliation, but the pH of this product (it consistently measures 5 or above) is too high for that to occur. This form of lactic acid has benefit as a water-binding agent for skin, but in this particular formula you will not get the exfoliation it could’ve provided. That’s a shame, because there are so few well formulated AHA body lotions available.

If you have dry skin and are considering this product, know that there are much better formulas that contain a wide complement of ingredients dry skin needs to repair itself and become healthier.

NOTE: We've had some readers ask us to update the review for this product because the ingredient list has changed. We've contacted the company and have confirmed that the ingredient list we post on this site (and AmLactin posts on their site, as of March 3, 2014) is, in fact, the current and correct ingredient list.
