LANÁTE cream contains a novel form of lactic acid and is suitable for all skin types. Lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), has been reported to be an effective, naturally occurring humectant in the skin and has beneficial effects when applied to dry skin, especially dry scaly skin. Alpha hydroxy acids moisturise skin by reducing water loss and drawing additional moisture deep into the skin. Alpha hydroxy acids also have the ability to exfoliate the skin. This allows faster shedding of the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing new, healthier- looking skin to emerge. This results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in the general appearance of the skin. HOW TO USE LANÁTE LANÁTE is a high strength alpha hydroxy acid cream which should be used sparingly once or twice daily to ensure the best results. Please note the following points: By removing the surface layer of dead skin cells, LANÁTE may make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and especially to the ultraviolet (UV) radiation component of sunlight. As UV exposure can damage the skin, sun exposure should be limited by routinely using an effective sunscreen and by wearing protective clothing. LANÁTE is for external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips and mucous membranes. If you get some cream in your eye, wash it out immediately with cool water. Sensitive skin may be more responsive to the exfoliating effects of LANÁTE, which may result in irritation. If you have sensitive skin, test LANÁTE on a small area of skin before applying the cream to a larger area. Transient stinging or irritation may occur when using LANÁTE. If severe stinging or excessive irritation occurs after application, wash the affected area and discontinue use. LANÁTE should not be used on children or infants.
