Q: substitute for Epilyt lotion

My daughter has been using Epilyt lotion for years with great results.  Have been unable to find any Epilyt recently.  Was told it was discontinued.  Are there any alternatives that work as well in getting rid of  thick scaly dry skin?

I see you posted in 02/09 and may have found the answer to your question by now.  Yes, Epilyt was discontinued.  I had used it for years (dry-normal skin).  I found a great substitute @ www.dermstore.com/product_Epilyt+lotion+Concentrate_98.5.htm.  Then see GlyDerm Lotion Plus 10 by Gly Derm 30.  Free shipping!   222.dermstore.com/profile_Gly+Derm_100123.htm.

 

Hope this helps.  The firm seems to carry several items that are of a fine grade for dermatological needs. (I am not affiliated wit DermStore.  However, I am a nurse specialist, have had years of experience dealing with skin cancers and other skin problems in my university hospital's profession in "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.") Frankly, I care about my own facial skin.

I just found a website that said it was in stock and ordered some - so hopefully they still have some!  bodyconcept.com 

 

I have used this for years and don't know what I will do without it...  :(

I get a weird "go daddy" sponsored site when i go to bodyconcept.com, and no mention of epilyt or any skin products.  looks like it might be a scam, just to generate click-throughs?

Discontinued.  Go to www.dermstore.com.  Look first for Epilyt in Google and choose the www listed site.  Good replacement for Epilyt, which I used for years!
