Moisturizer Options For Skin Health

Dermatologists have known for years that moisturizers tend to help many skin conditions, such as eczema (atopic dermatitis), psoriasis, lichen planus, and even acne. There are many moisturizer options, from heavier, thicker moisturizers ointments such as Aquaphor and Vaseline, to lighter lotions, such as Moisturel and Purpose Facial Lotion. Alpha-hydroxy moisturizers contain chemicals originally discovered in fruits and milk to help the skin both moisturize and release dead cells from the surface (exfoliate). Alpha-Hydroxy Acid-containing moisturizers include Laclotion, based on lactic acid, and GlycoShea Facial Cream and GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/Standard Strength, and GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream/High Strength, based on Glycolic Acid, originally discovered in sugarcane.

So what do moisturizers do? Depending upon their ingredients, they can:

  • help skin elasticity and resilience;

  • prevent fissuring or cracking in the skin;

  • decrease risk of skin bruising and

  • improve the ability of the skin to act as a barrier to skin infections, one of the skin’s prime functions.

  • If they contain Alpha-Hydroxy agents, they can also smooth out the surface of the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines, allowing an anti-wrinkle effect.

In 2016, I started working on an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid-containing moisturizers called GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream and GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream, an agent that my family of four dermatologists has been preparing or emulsifying since the 1980s. GlycoShea Hand&Body Cream comes in both Standard Strength, and High Strength, for people with especially dry skin.

So what’s remarkable about GlycoShea?

  • GlycoShea Creams are based upon an organic and natural botanical moisturizer called Shea Butter, which comes from a free that grows in regions of Africa.

  • We are able to avoid mixing chemicals called emulsifying chemical such as propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, and dodecyl sulfate, because we maintain close control on our manufacturing process.
