New AmLactin(R) Foot Cream Immerses Feet in Moisture
Date:3/5/2009

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- People across the country are now able to treat their feet with AmLactin(R) Foot Cream Therapy from Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. AmLactin(R) Foot Cream Therapy provides dry feet sufferers with an effective option to manage severely dry and chapped feet because of its high concentration of lactic acid, which helps to exfoliate and hydrate the skin. Dry, chapped feet are the result of various factors such as aging, weather, harsh soaps, exercise, and diseases like diabetes. You can manage this condition by not exposing feet to hot water for extended periods of time, using mild soap, completely drying feet after bathing, and moisturizing immediately after showering with a product that contains lactic acid.

"As an effective treatment option for dry feet, AmLactin(R) Foot Cream Therapy has been reviewed and tested by a team of podiatrists and awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association's Seal of Approval for its beneficial exfoliation and hydration properties," said APMA President Ross Taubman, DPM.

Dry skin is a common condition that affects the feet. If it is not properly managed, the skin can become cracked and allow germs to enter causing infection. Products containing lactic acid are the most effective in helping the feet retain moisture.

"Not all foot creams and body moisturizers contain lactic acid, so it is important to review a product's label and choose one with this ingredient," said Alan Fleischer, MD, professor, chair and director of the General Dermatology Clinic, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.

AmLactin(R) Foot Cream Therapy and the entire family of AmLactin(R) products are available at pharmacies nationwide and online at www.hocks.com.

"The addition of AmLactin(R) Foot Cream Therapy will give our customers moisturizing options from head to toe," said Mark Evenstad, President, Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. "For people who are really challenged with dry skin, the AmLactin(R) line of products offers serious care for softer skin."
