Cerapeutic Alpha-Hydroxy Ceramide Therapy Restoring Body Lotion, Fragrance Free
This body lotion contains the AHA ingredient ammonium lactate but the formula's pH of 5.3 keeps it from working as an exfoliant. What you do get from this product is a decent mix of water-binding agents and a teeny-tiny amount of impressive skin-repairing ingredients like ceramides, phytosphingosine, and cholesterol. Had those beneficial ingredients been more prominent (and given this product's name, they should've been) this body lotion would earn a higher rating.
Otherwise, this has a creamy, somewhat slick lotion texture that spreads easily and leave a decidedly moist finish best for normal to dry skin. It's not the most elegant-feeling body lotion, but it is fragrance-free, which benefits all skin types because fragrance is a source of skin irritation.
- Leaves dry skin feeling smooth, soft, and protected from moisture loss.
- The AHA ingredients cannot function as exfoliants due to the product's pH being outside the ideal range.
- Despite the name, the formula contains only a small amount of ceramides and other state of the art repairing ingredients.
Clinically proven, intensely hydrating Ultraplex gently exfoliates while three essential ceramides quickly strengthen the skin's protective moisture barrier for noticeably softer, more resilient skin.
Weaknesses: Expensive; the pH on all products is too high for exfoliation to occur.
