Where can I get acid-mantle creme
I have been trying to find a jar of acid-mantle crème but Doak pharmacies no longer make it. Does anyone know if some one else makes it? ## There's actually another brand I found by the name of "Risabal-ph". They make an acid-mantle creme that's used as a moisturizer for a variety of different skin conditions (including dry, rough, itchy, irritated skin and even goes so far as balancing it's Ph levels). You can find a 16oz jar of it on amazon for around $43. I haven't tried it myself, but after living in such a dry climate for so long, I might need all the moisture I can get. There are also a good number of reviews online if you're looking for more feedback on it. I hope this info helps!
