Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion

Just as this product was starting to gain attention by sufferers of keratosis pilaris, it turns out that it is no longer available. After contacting Neutrogena we were told that it has indeed been discontinued (as of January 2006, along with another Neutrogena favorite "Multi-Vitamin Acne Treatment").

Unfortunately it did not meet Neutrogena's expected sales and so the decision was made to discontinue it. What a shame too, as a KP sufferer myself I had recently started using it and thought it worked really well as a treatment.

If you really loved Neutrogena's Skin Smoothing Body Lotion, a very similar product to try is Glytone's Body Lotion (from the Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit). For other products used to treat keratosis pilaris go to www.helpforkp.com.

Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion users can contact Neutrogena (USA only) at 1-800-582-4048 to request this product back on shelves.

If this is discontinued, why can I find it at various on-line drugstores? Are they selling "old" product? It figures that something that obliterated my self-consciousness at wearing sleeveless shirts was discontinued!

This lotion has saved my life. Since birth I've struggled with finding a lotion that wasn't costly and helped soothe my irritated skin. This lotion has been the only soltion to help my atopic eczema condition. I'm extremely disheartened by the discontinuation of this product from Neutrogena.

Seems a good product but I personally believe the use of natural products is beneficial in avoiding numerous skin infections.

Anyone have any suggestions as an alternative? Something that works just as well?
