In our early days in the 2010s, AMELIORATE had a mission to create a body lotion to address the dryness and irritation associated with KP or menopausal skin more generally. We eventually settled on lactic acid as our hero ingredient--read on to find out why!

In pursuit of addressing the notorious 'chicken skin' associated with KP, we meticulously crafted our Transforming Body Lotion. The goal was crystal clear – to banish those pesky bumps and unveil skin that's not just smooth but exquisitely soft. Our unique formulation took a dual-pronged approach: an exfoliating and rejuvenating lotion that doesn't compromise on providing deep, lasting hydration.

Now, you might wonder why we opted for Lactic Acid over other Alpha Hydroxy Acids, such as Glycolic. Well, Lactic Acid stands out for more than just its exfoliating prowess. It doubles up as a humectant, meaning it draws moisture to the skin, ensuring it remains gloriously moisturized.

This is particularly important when it comes to menopausal skin. The drop in oestrogen levels in menopausal skin, leads to declining levels of collagen. This change in the makeup of the skin means it is difficult for the skin to retain moisture. Therefore, a moisture binding ingredient like Lactic Acid is key to protecting more mature skin.

Unlike some other AHAs that could potentially dry out the skin, Lactic Acid proves to be a game-changer, particularly for those struggling with excess dryness.

Managing skin dryness might be an ongoing journey, but our LaH6 complex, when used diligently, stands out as a product that truly delivers. The bumps and irritation can be considered history. Moisturized, velvety skin is what remains, and it radiates health and vitality.

At AMELIORATE, our unwavering focus is on efficacy. We prioritize results – a product that not only works but transforms. For those dealing with KP and other skin conditions, we invite you to experience the difference. Say goodbye to the discomfort and hello to a daily ritual that unveils beautiful skin. You skin will not just be manageable but truly thriving – moisturized, soft, and irresistibly smooth.
