Lotion for Keratosis Pilaris Treatment – BIOSKINTREATMENT
Keratosis Pilaris Lotion
A lotion for application on skin affected by keratosis pilaris so that the hard keratin plugs of the hair follicles (pores) are dissolved by the action of enzymes and by natural salicylic acid extracted from the Willow Bark Tree
Would you like to be without a trace of chicken skin bumps, keratin plugs, blocked hair follicles, inflamed or redish rashes and dark blemishes, and visibly smoother, moist, toned up, healthier skin?
BIOSKINTREATMENT is a biological solution for keratosis pilaris
- It dissolves the keratin plugs around the follicles that block pores, allows for normal shedding off dead skin cells and softens the skin while revitalizing it
- Acts as a non trauma exfoliation by eliminating by enzymes digestion scaly and horny lesions before they grow.
- Also destroys pathogens, heals and regenerates damaged tissue.
- It nourishes your skin and protects it from free radicals.
- Improves the skin’s color and elasticity, and leaves it silky soft and soothed.
Those effects clear keratosis pilaris bumps, redness, rashes, acne and all skin blemishes – even scars that you have lived with for years will become softer and less noticeable.
What is Keratosis Pilaris?
Keratosis pilaris, KP or also follicular keratosis is a very common genetic follicular disorder manifested by the appearance of rough bumps on the skin and hence colloquially referred to as “chicken skin” or “chicken skin bumps”.
In a medical sense there is no keratosis pilaris cure but the good news is most people present benign symptoms that can be relieved and treated. For many the condition is not a problem during most of the year but may relapse in winter if it is not taken care of with a good emollient product.
Primarily, it appears on the back and outer sides of the upper arms, but can also occur on thighs and buttocks and cheeks or any body part except glabrous skin (like the palms or soles of feet). Worldwide, keratosis pilaris affects an estimated 40 to 50% of the adult population and approximately 50 to 80% of all adolescents. Varying in degree, keratoisi pilaris can range from minimal to severe.
Keratosis pilaris tends to occur as excess keratin, a natural fibrous protein in the skin found normally in human hair, nails and callus, accumulates around hair follicles (process known as hyperkeratinization). This excess gets trapped inside the follicle, developing a bump.
Keratosis pilaris is more than anything else unattractive, and it most often appears as a proliferation of tiny hard bumps that are seldom sore or itchy. Though people with keratosis pilaris experience this condition year round, it’s during the colder months when moisture levels in the air are lower that the problem can become exacerbated and the “goose bumps” are apt to look and feel more pronounced in color and texture.
Cells that contain keratin are constantly being shed and replaced by new ones. The condition known as dandruff results when the scalp sheds such cells. Hormonal influence may occur because a high prevalence and intensity of keratosis pilaris is noted during puberty and in women with hyperandrogenism. In severe cases, the pores can become clogged and cause acne. The clogged pores resemble comedones of keratinized plugs surrounding the hair follicle.
Keratosis Pilaris: bumps on the skin, a genetic condition that affects the skin follicles
Keratosis pilaris is a condition of the skin in which the hair follicles become plugged with hair and with dead cells from the outermost layer of skin as the skin renews itself. Normally dead cells would shed off easily but when this genetic condition is present they get stuck in the hair follicles, and due to their excessive adherence form a scaly plug. The follicles redden and inflame causing papules: tiny rough pink bumps on the surface of the skin. They are numerous in the affected area. Each one is a horny plug, sometimes rather red but only rarely itchy and never sore.
The phenomenon whereby the outer skin scales are excessively adherent and do not shed easily is known as abnormal keratinization or hyperkeratinization. The fact that it is localized to the individual follicles and occurs in each and every one in a certain area, explains its characteristic “millions of bumps” appearance.
Keratosis Pilaris is usually completely harmless but sometimes quite unsightly
Sometimes, the hyperkeratotic buildup entraps the hair within the follicle. The trapped hair gets bunched up and may lead to a red irritated bump that may fill with pus. These pus filled red bumps are often confused with bacterial folliculitis or with acne.
The papules of keratoses pilaris are usually seen on the upper arms and thighs but also appear on the face, back, and buttocks. Each bump is a conical (spiny) plug resembling goosebumps. Sometimes, the skin surrounding the follicles might be slightly irritated, making it look like a red “rash”.
When keratosis pilaris occurs on the cheeks, the affected area is not only red but it also feels rough. The characteristic “reddish” aspect of this type of facial Keratosis Pilaris gives it the clinical name of KP Rubra Faceii. Another variant on the face, called “keratoses pilaris atrophicans faciei”, causes a worm-eaten like atrophy of skin. When the outer eyebrows are affected the condition is known as “ulerythema ophryogenes”.
There are several different types of keratosis pilaris
- Keratosis pilaris rubra: red, inflamed bumps
- Keratosis pilaris Alba: rough, white, bumpy skin
- Keratosis pilaris rubra faceii: reddish rash over the cheeks
- Keratosis pilaris atrophicans: a genetic clogging of the pores and follicles with keratin, which leads to the death of the follicle. After the follicle has died the hair falls down leaving behind an unsightly scar.
- Ichthyosis vulgaris, also known as common ichthyosis or fish scale disease, is a skin condition resulting in scaly skin, especially on the arms and legs, in overgrowth (hyperkeratosis) of the skin on the palms and soles (sometimes the skin creases may crack during dry weather) It also results in keratosis pilaris (follicular hyperkeratosis) on the side of the neck, back of the upper arms, buttocks and/or thighs.
- Keratosis follicularis, characterized by scaly, warty, crusted papules distributed mostly on the seborrheic areas of the body. Nail involvement is characterized by V-shaped nicking at the distal aspect of the nail bed, longitudinal red and white alternating bands, and subungual hyperkeratosis (buildup of scales underneath the nailplate). Mucosal membrane involvement may occur as white papules on the buccal mucosae, palate, and gingiva with a cobblestone appearance.
- Keratosis Palmaris or Familial keratosis palmaris et plantaris is characterized by extreme keratinization and desquamation of the skin of the palmar and plantar surfaces of the hands and feet or thickening of the palms and soles as a result of excessive keratin formation leading to hypertrophy of the stratum corneum.
Other skin disorders related to keratosis of the skin
Inverted follicular keratosis: a benign usually solitary epithelial tumor originating in a hair follicle and occurring as a flesh-colored nodule or papule. Inverted follicular keratosis is believed to be an inflammatory variant of seborrheic keratosis. It commonly is found on the faces and sun-exposed areas of elders. Typically, this lesion is located on the upper eyelid. The lesions tend to be single and presents as a papule or nodule.
Seborrheic Keratosis. Seborrheic means greasy and keratosis means thickening of the skin. There may be just one or clusters of dozens. They are usually start off light tan, and then may darken to dark brown or nearly black. They may be oval spots a fraction of an inch across, or form long Christmas tree like patterns on the torso inches long. The consistent feature of seborrheic keratosis is their waxy, pasted-on or stuck-on look.
The look is often compared to brown candle wax that was dropped onto the skin. They may be unsightly, especially if they begin to appear on the face. These are not contagious and do not spread. They have no relationship to skin cancer and do not pose a risk to health.
Who is Prone to Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis Pilaris is a very common finding on the outer aspect of the upper arms of teenagers. It is particularly prevalent in those with Celtic backgrounds.
Keratoses Pilaris is estimated to affect roughly half of the world’s over-all population. The inheritance pattern of the condition is dominant. This means that only one copy of the Keratosis Pilaris gene is required to result in a person developing this condition. The practical implications of this are that if one parent has keratosis pilaris, the chance of the couple’s child having keratosis pilaris is over 50%. If both parents have the condition, the odds are even higher.
Face occurrences often affect babies where it tends to be most obvious on the cheeks. It may remain for years but generally becomes less obvious in adult life; keratoses pilaris is uncommon in elderly people.
People with a history of skin allergies are most susceptible to this condition. The papules tend to occur in association with allergic dermatitis and several types of dry skin disorders. Both of these conditions have a strong hereditary link.
Keratosis pilaris tends to be more severe during the winter months or other times of low humidity when skin dries out.
Keratosis Relief & Scarring Prevention
BIOSKINTREATMENT absorbs quickly, speeds skin regeneration and replacement of damaged cells and relieves many skin disorders including Keratosis Pilaris. It opens clogged pores, allows for normal shedding off dead skin cells, softens the skin scales around the follicle and helps to reduce scars. It also prevents scarring and acts as a natural remedy against skin infections including acne.
The lotion works best for keratosis pilaris when applied twice daily. It softens the adherent skin scales around the follicle enabling them to be shed more easily. Some people find that the use of a Buff-Puff, either to apply the cream and/or to abrade the skin during washing, increases the benefits of BIOSKINTREATMENT. Other people find that this abrasion simply causes extra irritation and aggravates Keratosis Pilaris.
The first noticeable effect is a softening of the skin and then the elimination of the plugging that may lead to acne formation. Scarring is avoided, reduced and may even vanish altogether. Ultimate healing is when new ‘invisible’ hair, known as lanugo, comes thru the restored hair follicles in formerly damaged areas.
Try BIOSKINTREATMENT Lotion & Get Your Skin Healthy Again Quickly!
BIOSKINTREATMENT has a two fold effect: (1) Purifies the cells & decongests tissues as it helps to eliminate waste, toxins, keratosis crusts and all damaged skin structures. (2) Favors cellular regeneration.
It leaves your skin smooth, refreshed, soft and with use over a period of time it takes away all imperfections and blemishes: acne spots, scars, keratosis bumps, razor nicks and burns, roughness, dryness. It also brightens and enhances your complexion.
BIOSKINTREATMENT is a non prescription, natural skin care remedy, with absolutely no side effects.
The lotion is made with a natural biological ingredient, collected from live land snails, the same they use to quickly repair their own skin and shell when damaged. It is contained in the serum secreted by the snails, (we gather it through a process that is safe for them). It is a viscose liquid that is made into an odorless white cream with no alien, synthetic chemicals. Analysis of the serum has determined that it contains activators of skin growth factors and antimicrobial peptides.
Also presents natural anti-inflammatory and immune modulating proteins, glycoproteins, glycosaminoglycans (a group of polysaccharides with high molecular weight that contain amino sugars and often form complexes with proteins. Also called mucopolysaccharide) and copper.
The results are:
- A healthier appearance of the skin
- A thicker more healthy skin
- Normal skin color
- Normal skin texture
- A hydrated skin
- Dissolves dead and dying cells on the topmost micron of skin (part of the outer layer that is no thicker than a sheet of paper, slowly and over a period of time)
- Digests damaged cells and keratin plugs within the dermis by the action of biological enzymes
- Stimulates the use of the aminoacids that the enzymes free and activates the fibroblast stem cells which favor the proliferation of new healthy connective tissues and all the structural elements of healthy skin
- Stimulates the formation of the extracellular binding between cells, thus improving skin strength, cutting down on fragility.
- Restores the capacity of the skin to remain hydrated by stimulating the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, the molecules that give skin its capacity to keep in moisture. This helps to thicken the dermis resulting in a lessening of sagging and less fine lines and wrinkles.
- Neutralizes free radicals by the action of its potent antioxidants that also have an anti-inflammatory effect.
- Inhibits microbiological activity of dangerous, pathogenic skin bacteria, including acne.
- Regulates blood vessel formation and oxygenation within the capillaries in the skin contributing to its proper nourishment.
- Regulates dermal fibroblast proliferation and excess collagen, and thus prevents and reduces abnormal scars such as keloid and hyperthropic scarring and slowly but consistently gets rid of ice-pick scars or pitted acne scars.
With the use of BIOSKINTREATMENT for a month you may remain free of Keratosis for months and possibly years. Or you may need to repeat the treatment every 6 months.
BIOSKINTREATMENT grinds down keratosis scales and horny crusts through enzyme dissolution of keratin and hydrolysis of abnormal tissues, and prevents the growth of actinic keratosis scaly formations
The biological ingredient in BIOCUTIS products increases the skin’s regenerative processes – in addition to accelerating removal of dysfunctional keratin and damaged protein in the skin, it stimulates skin renewal without harsh exfoliation or the use of expensive laser procedures, and helps to produce a better skin renewal with milder exfoliation or various controlled skin damage methods. It also enhances the skin’s natural regenerative responses by stimulating new capillary formation (angiogenesis), and the orchestrated biosynthesis of collagen, elastin and the water-holding proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans.
The beauty and genius of nature’s most complete and balanced biological skin treatment lotion is that it first creates the equivalent of a NON TRAUMA exfoliation which means that your skin will react to the biological enzymes by activating its own biological response modifiers thereby interacting with your body’s immune system and repair mechanisms to treat skin injuries (cuts, bruises, abrasions, acne lesions, scarring), dysfunctional tissues (keratosis, keloid and hypertrophic scars, dryness) and prevent immune-mediated inflammatory skin disorders (inflammatory acne, rosacea, eczema and most dermatitis reactions).
And it will do so in an environment that has also been provided with all the molecule messengers that are necessary for a) the recognition of those cells and tissues that are damaged and need to be “digested” by the enzymes and b) an orchestrated regeneration or biosynthesis of new healthy tissues.
When the enzymes “digest” or dissolve the topmost micron of skin (part of the outer layer that is no thicker than a sheet of paper, slowly and over a period of time) unlike all other such methods as glycolic acid peels, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing, there is no heat and blistering, so there is nothing to heal.
When you burn your skin, your body creates healing protein like collagen and elastin bands, pus, melanin, water, and antibodies (inflamm-aging) that rush to the aid of the trauma. In that case, there actually IS a burn to tend to…
However, during your BIOCUTIS treatment, there is NOT any burn or trauma repair. The proteins that transport the repair elements to the epidermis and underlying stratum corneum are flooded with your own molecules and DNA. The new skin growth that is waiting to be exposed is not only smoother and tighter on its own, but it has just been soaked with those reparative proteins and water holding molecules that hydrated your skin and flooded to the surface to come to the aid of the ‘NON TRAUMA EXFOLIATION’.
BIOSKINTREATMENT also treats the dry, scaly skin that is present when skin is affected by actinic keratosis or ichthyosis vulgaris by exfoliating and thus reducing keratin clogged pores. And it helps to remove ingrown hairs and treat folliculitis (barber’s itch)
BIOSKINTREATMENT LOTION clears skin of keratin bumps and regenerates healthy skin
The product is made with the same base as BIOSKINCARE plus Salix Nigra (Willow) Extract and Amorphophallus Konjac Root Powder for a more potent keratolytic effect that cleans the excess horny material of the skin by degrading keratin plugs and dissolving debris, damaged, abnormal and necrotic tissues. It decongests the skin as the enzymes in the snail serum and the natural salicylic acid in willow bark extract help to ‘digest’ all damaged structures into their amino-acid and other components, which also favors the regeneration of all the structural components of healthy skin.
It leaves your skin smooth, refreshed, soft and with use over a period of time it takes away keratosis pilaris, actinic keratosis scales, controls acne and reduces and even vanishes all types of skin blemishes: razor nicks and burns, roughness, blisters, scrapes, cuts, and the list can go on and on…

Keratosis Pilaris Worldwide, KP affects an average of 4 – 5 out of ten adults, but it is a majority during the adolescent years.
Even though it is linked with a female condition, the population distribution is almost even, but hair covers the flaws over male skin, so it’s less noticeable. Varying in degree, cases of Keratosis Pilaris can affect a minimum part of the dermis or extensive areas.
Keratosis pilaris flaws or bumps often appears on the back and outer sides of the upper arms and can also occur on the thighs and tops of legs, flanks, buttocks or any body part except glabrous skin (palms or soles of feet). Less frequently, these tiny bumps appear over the cheeks, so many people confuse them with acne.
Many people with keratosis pilaris do not know they have it, especially because it may not be severe, hair might dissimulate it, or you may confuse it with another condition such as acne or atopic dermatitis.
While KP resembles chicken skin, it is diagnosed by a dermatologist because of the appearance of small rough bumps covering a specific area of the dermal tissue. In most cases, this condition will be diagnosed without testing, but to be sure, a biopsy is the best way to go. This procedure is almost painless; the doctor will scrape of some skin and extract a bump. The results, if suffering from KP will be an inner surplus of a self organized protein known as keratin. Keratosis pilaris occurs as excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin, accumulates within the hair follicles creating hard clogs (process known as hyperkeratinization).
Although the clogging seems to be a problem, this has only a cosmetic consequence, the condition most often appears as a propagation of tiny hard bumps that are hardly ever sore or itchy. Though people with keratosis pilaris suffer this condition year round, it’s throughout the colder months when moisture levels in the air are lower that the problem can become exacerbated and the skin is apt to look and feel more distinct in color and texture (some say it is as “chicken skin”).
There is no known cure for Keratosis pilaris in the sense of not experiencing it ever again after certain treatment or therapy. Some improvement or even disappearance of the condition may be experienced with age; however, some people will show signs of keratosis pilaris for life.
Treatments are mostly symptomatic and must be repeated. Regardless, exfoliation by enzymes or physical exfoliation, moisturizing creams, lac-hydrin, and medicated lotions with alpha-hydroxy acids or urea may be used to momentarily improve the appearance and texture of affected skin.
Scratching and picking at KP a bump is a no-no, they can redden, bleed and become infected. If this happens, you may be left with an unsightly scar as a reminder. Wearing loose clothing can also help lessen the flaws, as constant chafing from clothing (such as tight fitting jeans) is parallel to repeatedly scratching the bumps.
What is ammonium lactate?
Ammonium lactate is a combination of lactic acid and ammonium hydroxide. Ammonium lactate is a moisturizer. Ammonium lactate is used to treat dry, scaly, itchy skin: the symptoms of keratosis pilaris. This medicine is a humectant. Exactly how it works is unknown but it increases the amount of water in the skin, making it softer and more pliable.
Brand Names: Amlactin, AmLactin Foot Cream Therapy, Amlactin XL, Kerasal AL, Lac-Hydrin, Lac-Hydrin 5, Laclotion
Do not apply ammonium lactate to your face unless your doctor has told you to. Avoid getting this medication in your mouth or eyes. If it does get into any of these areas, rinse with water. Do not apply ammonium lactate topical after shaving or use it on sunburned, windburned, dry, chapped, irritated, or broken skin. Avoid exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays (sunlamps or tanning beds). Ammonium lactate can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may result. Use a sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) and wear protective clothing if you must be out in the sun.
Call your doctor if your skin condition does not improve or if it gets worse even with ammonium lactate treatment.
Stop using the medication and call your doctor if you have severe burning, stinging, redness, or peeling of the skin treated with ammonium lactate.
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to ammonium lactate.
Ammonium lactate may be more likely to cause skin irritation in people who have fair or sensitive skin.
FDA pregnancy category C. This medication may be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether ammonium lactate passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. Ammonium lactate should not be used on a child without the advice of a doctor.
How should I apply ammonium lactate?
Use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Shake the lotion form of this medication well just before using it.
Ammonium lactate is usually applied twice a day. Follow your doctor’s instructions. Wash your hands before and after applying this medication, unless you are using it to treat a hand condition. Do not apply ammonium lactate to your face unless your doctor has told you to.
Call your doctor if your skin condition does not improve or if it gets worse even with ammonium lactate treatment. Store ammonium lactate at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
Ammonium lactate side effects Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Stop using the medication and call your doctor if you have severe burning, stinging, redness, or peeling of the skin treated with ammonium lactate.
Less serious side effects may include:
- * mild skin peeling or dryness
- mild skin redness or irritation;
- bruising or other discoloration; or
- darkening of the treated skin.
This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
