This rich cream contains a high concentration of Polyhydroxy and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (PHAs and AHAs) to exfoliate severely dry, rough and thickened skin on areas such as heels, knees and elbows. Significant improvement has been demonstrated in heavily calloused skin in as little as 3 weeks of once daily use. The highly emollient vehicle of beeswax and skin conditioning oils helps to reduce skin roughness on contact. Ideal for patients with scaling and flaking associated with hyperkeratosis, psoriasis and keratosis pilaris (rough bumps).

Neostrata Problem Dry Skin Cream
I have Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disorder that includes symptoms of rock hard, darkened, cracked, callused skin that left unchecked will lead to bleeding and difficulty staying active. This product, which is the follow-up of a discontinued Neostrata product, is the ONLY product that - including presription treatments - quickly went to work and accomplished the job of giving my feet, hands, elbows, knees, and other skin back to me! I once again have toes instead of alligator claws. My dermatologist was so impressed by my improvement, she asked for the name of the product, how and where it could be purchased, so she could direct her other patients to purchase this "genie in a bottle." When Neostrata discontinued the forerunner of this product, I mined the web, looking to stock jars. Fortunately. they put NeoStrata Problem Dry Skin Cream on the market shortly thereafter.
