Our Exfoliating Moisturizing 2% Glycolic Acid Foot Cream exfoliates skin using natural chemistry which transforms your outer dead skin cell layer to provide a radiant and smooth luster to tired and sore feet.
Glycolic Acid, a member of the AHA's (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), instantly brightens your skin and soothes it by exfoliating dead skin cells. Unlike other products, a Glycolic Acid Foot Cream is not washed off, so your skin is able to drink in the benefits of the glycolic acid all day and/or night long! Glycolic The ability to remove the top layer of skin to reveal fresh skin underneath means that Glycolic Acid products can also make your skin more vulnerable to the sun. So if you are outdoors barefoot, you should use a sunscreen in conjunction with this, or any product that contains Glycolic Acid. We use 2% Glycolic Acid in our formulation.
We also added Apple extract which is rich in vitamins and promotes natural skin cell replacement and inhibits elastase, an enzyme which breaks down elastin and collagen helping maintain smooth, youthful skin. To round it out we added Allantoin originally derived from the Comfrey Plant, which is known to have moisturizing effects as well as properties that help create smooth, healthy skin. Not only does Allantoin help skin lock in moisture, it also encourages skin to shed dead cells and grow new ones, promoting healthy cell development and preventing dull dry skin. If you have sensitive, dry, or scaly skin, using products that contain Allantoin may benefit it by moisturizing, protecting, and healing all at the same time without causing any adverse effects.
Comes in a 4 ounce BPA free plastic jar. Made in USA.
Note: Glycolic Acid products can make your skin more vulnerable to the sun. You should always use a sunscreen in conjunction with this, or any product that contains Glycolic Acid if your feet will be exposed to the sun. DO NOT USE MORE THAN RECOMMENDED.

Our bath and body care products are all made in USA in small batches with top quality ingredients. We use organic when we can, and we only use the best base oils and phthalate free essential oils and fragrance oils. If we wouldn’t put it on OUR skin it certainly won’t go on yours!
PALM OIL Our palm oil is not only organic but it is certified responsibly and sustainably sourced. No habitat is being destroyed to create this palm oil, no animals at risk due to the collection or processing of our palm oil, we were adamant about that when sourcing for our products. Yes, it is more expensive but it is important to us and our customers.
GOAT MILK Not all our soaps are vegan, some contain honey or beeswax or goat milk. Those that contain goats milk use milk from locally raised goats, which are small family farms and not a large factory farm. These goats are treated like pets rather than farm animals, we feel it makes a huge difference in the milk quality as it comes from happy, well treated animals.
HONEY AND BEESWAX As mentioned previously, we do use honey or beeswax in some of our products and when we do, it comes from locally sourced small farms. These insects are healthy and an important part of our agricultural ecosystem. Bees and their products that they naturally manufacture provide us humans with not only honey but pollenate our food crops as well.
EXTRACTS AND FERMENT FILTRATES Some of our products contain natural fruit or herbal extracts, these extracts are all natural and provide incredible benefits when used in our bath and body products.
Rosemary extract is unscented and can prolong the life of bar soap and other skin-care products by helping to prevent oxidation.
Coconut fruit extract is a rich skin-conditioning natural extract with fatty acids, proteins and complex B vitamins which makes it a perfect skin-softener in our lotion.
Radish root ferment filtrate is a natural preservative made from radish roots that helps to protect against contaminates and is used in our lotion.
NATURAL HERBS AND POWDERS Many of our soaps contain natural herbs and powders which provide many different benefits, some provide natural colors at the same time as offering their innate natural benefits to each soap like turmeric powder which not only is used as a natural colorant in some of our soaps but also offers healthy anti-inflammatory qualities when used on the skin. Our ingredients are always clearly listed on every product description.
ESSENTIAL OILS We only use natural essential oils that are phthalate free. Essential oils are extracted from natural herbs, plants, fruits and vegetables.
FRAGRANCE OILS We only use top quality fragrance oils oils that are phthalate free when essential oils cannot duplicate a scent profile. Example, fruits like apples, blueberry and strawberry do not have essential oils because it is impossible to make them, so to achieve these scents fragrance oils usually derived from natural sources if at all possible are used.FDA DISCLAIMER This notice is required by the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act: The contents of this website are for informational purposes only.
