"I have been using this product since 1993. One of the benefits of using ProKera is the glycolic acid, which, in this product, has not been buffered or neutralized by pasteurization or adding negating ingredients. It may sting temporarily upon application, but that's how you tell the glycolic acid hasn't been neutralized and it's working! Additionally, it has an anti-aging ability that no other product that I have found on the market has. All of my friends tell me I look 20 years younger, and ask what I am using on my skin. Because our whole family uses it, I buy it by the gallon. It is extremely affordable, for all the benefits it provides to our skin. Our skin never gets dry, aging spots are lighter, little bumps on the back of my arms are gone and, I swear, the basal cell cancer is gone or at least keeps it under control. Additionally, my friend has actinic keratoses on his bald head, and now it's gone. He keeps it under control by applying ProKera everyday. I have two seborrheic keratoses on my leg, and it gets super dry and ugly if I don't apply ProKera. Try this product for all your dermatologic issues, I promise, you won't be disappointed."
"I have used many different lotions over my 70 years, but I have never used one that is so healing and non-greasy and quick-absorbing as ProKera. I just purchased a large quantity and now use it for body lotion after my shower, and not just for my hands. Love the feel it gives my skin. During this coronavirus, my hands were taking a beating with all the hand washing, and you will see results overnight. This is a such a great product - thank you, ProKera!"
"My pharmacist told me about ProKera. I like it because doesn't have a foo foo smell, and I can grab onto things after putting it on (no greasy feel). I don't need to reapply every time I wash my hands and at the end of the workday, the work grime comes off easier when washing. Best of all, a little goes a long way.
"Thank you for your products! I recently had my first outbreak of psoriasis, with one large patch and a bunch of smaller ones, all of which itched unmercifully. After applying ProKera lotion once, the itching stopped, and after several applications the lesions have flattened out and are fading. In addition, I have diabetes, with the resultant excessively dry skin. The lotion helps my skin to shed the dry surface and lubricates the skin to a pleasant softness. I also have a bunch of senile keratosis, and set up an experiment. On one I've been applying ProKera lotion regularly, and not on the other. The one receiving ProKera lotion is beginning to flatten out and shed the dark surface bumps around the edges! I'm pretty sure the unsightly thing will disappear over time. If ProKera were not as wonderfully absorbent as it is, I wouldn't feel inclined to apply it as often as I do. I love it so much I have bought it for friends and family, both female and male! I will be using the smaller bottles as gifts for folks. I am 78-years-old, by the way, and have used a wide variety of skin products over the years. This is the first time I have ever written to praise one!
"I first discovered ProKera in the early 90s when I was visiting friends in Montana in the winter. I had forgotten to bring my lotion and found ProKera in a drugstore in Billings. I bought it because it was unscented, non-greasy and sounded therapeutic. When I returned to Sacramento and after I ran out of the one bottle I had purchased, I tried other lotions that I could easily buy in stores locally. However, the ones I tried never really worked, I had to apply them after every washing, and they were either too greasy or perfumed. I went back to ProKera and have used it ever since. ProKera not only takes care of rough dry skin, but it lasts through several washings. I believe the glycolic acid is a big part of its effectiveness. It gently removes the surface skin cells to leave my skin soft and normal feeling. It also sinks into the skin quickly and leaves no greasy residue. Just the other day, I shared some with my daughter-in-law, and she and my son both asked me to get them some more. And they love the slight tingle you feel when it's first applied. I rarely take the time to write reviews of things unless they are really bad or really good. I can't say enough good things about ProKera. A few years ago, I also started buying your Facial Velvet face cream that has 10% glycolic acid. As I have gotten older, the skin on my face, which for years has been sensitive and reactive to just about anything, also started feeling as rough as sandpaper. I realized that not only did I need to exfoliate more but also needed an effective face cream. My skin loves it and my face feels soft and normal again! I am in my 60s now and have searched for years for the right products for my skin. Thank you ProKera for still being around all these years, and for making such wonderful products that truly work for me.

"ProKera is the best lotion I've ever used on my hard working hands. I tell all my friends who have problems with their hands about it. The thing I like best about it is you can put it on and it feels like you have lotion on but you can still grab hold of things and they don't slip away. It's really amazing. I'm an electrician."
~ Tim, Spokane, WA
"I have a skin problem on my thumb from working with insulation. The only thing that clears it is ProKera. It stays creamy a lot longer than other lotions and helps work the fiberglass back out of the skin. I tell all my guys at the union hall to use it. We all have trouble with our hands and knees, and ProKera really takes care of it."
"I've been a cabinet maker for over 30 years. Every winter I get bad splits on my thumb and index finger tips. They're really painful and messy when they bleed. This year they're better. Why? Every so often while I'm watching TV at night, I rub a little ProKera into them. I keep a tube on the table by my chair. Now the splitting is almost gone. If I used it more regularly than once or twice a week, they'd probably be all cleared up. But I don't like to do that 'girly stuff'."
"My doctor tried all kinds of prescription stuff on my cracked and bleeding hands and then he gave me some samples tubes of your lotion. After just a short time I was all cleared up and I've been a loyal user ever since. I buy ProKera by the gallon and take a squirt every time I walk by the bottle."
"I have eczema really bad and have had it for 21 years. I have had it all over my body and hands. They crack and bleed all year-round. I have used several kinds of medicines, lotions, soaps and had to wear gloves to do and touch everything. I have been using ProKera lotion for two months, twice a day on my body and my hands. They look great. I thought I would never have pretty hands again but I was wrong. Thank you, thank you very much. This stuff works great and I show no signs of eczema anywhere nor do I have to use gloves any more or even medicine."
~ Brenda B., Idaho
"I want to tell you how I appreciate your lotion, ProKera. I have suffered with eczema since I was 25 years old, and I am now 77 years. Over the years, I have used different medications (prescriptions) and over-the-counter lotions. Since I discovered ProKera, my condition has been better and I have used my medication less frequently. When I have run out of ProKera and have had to resort to other lotions until I could afford to buy ProKera, my problems worsen again. I try to purchase the large size when I can. Please continue to produce ProKera."

"I am writing to thank you for your wonderful ProKera Hand & Body Lotion. I run a daycare. Due to all the hand washing, dish washing, and cleaning my hands had dried out causing peeling, cracking, and bleeding. Some days they were so bad I couldn't bend my fingers. I was in a lot of pain. My dermatologist diagnosed my problem as eczema and prescribed medication and a prescription lotion. The pills gave me nausea the [prescribed] lotion only gave some relief, never really clearing the condition. This went on for six months. Whenever I discontinued the pills, it would come back. Then he gave me some ProKera and two weeks later my hands were back to normal. I am so impressed with ProKera lotion that I have my husband and his friend using it. They think its great and particularly like that it is fragrance free."
~ Sharon S., Coeur d Alene, ID
"I couldn't be happier. I recently purchased ProKera and found healing and relief. I suffer from eczema and five years of diaper changing. If I knew how well this product was going to work, I would have taken before-and-after pictures. Before ProKera, my hands looked like a 90-year-old's and within 24 hours of using your product my hands look like they should and feel like new—no, better than new! I have tried all the latest products over the counter, from multi-level distributors and prescriptions but nothing has ever worked like ProKera. You guys deserve a medal or something for this product. I love it! Thank you for developing it. Are you selling stock? I'll buy some!"
~ Karen C.M., Spokane
"We were very satisfied with ProKera lotion that I ordered for my daughter with ichthyosis. It does wonders for her skin. I felt very 'taken care of' with my questions answered directly by you. You gave me wonderful information through your e-mails. Your customer service was impeccable and that's hard to find these days."
~ Cheryl W., Redondo Beach, CA
"I am a 45-year-old woman who was born with ichthyosis. I have spent my entire life applying various lotions and crémes to my body twice a day and have found nothing that has stopped the constant flakiness in my skin. In May of , I was at Bloomsday in Spokane [when] I was offered a sample of your lotion and bought a small bottle of the 10% glycolic acid formulation and immediately began using it. What has happened to my skin has been miraculous, and I am very hard to impress in this area. I shower every other day per a dermatologist's suggestion, and now I apply your lotion to my entire body and that is all the lotion I use. The flakiness is entirely gone, my skin has a shine to it; it looks healthy and is smooth for the first time in my life. I am now wearing shorts and sleeveless blouses without any hint of self-consciousness. Believe me that is a first. Your formula is so wonderful and I recommend your lotion to everyone I meet who has dry skin. Thank you so much for selling such a great product!"
~ Allison R., Seattle, WA
"My son has congenital ichthyosis. He has had excellent success controlling this with ProKera. Thanks."
~ Roger S., MD, Billings, MT
"I am writing to let you know how pleased I am with your product, ProKera. I suffer with the genetic skin disorder, ichthyosis. For years I have tried nearly every over-the-counter product for dry skin. A prescription lotion has provided the best results for the past few years but I find ProKera to be more comfortable because it is not greasy. I am thrilled to have discovered your product and have enthusiastically recommended it to many friends and family."
~ Carol P., Liberty Lake, WA
"Having lived with diabetes type 2 for seven years, I want to tell you what a marvelous product ProKera is. With just a few applications of ProKera 10%, my feet lose their dry scaliness and the cracking is nearly healed. What really amazed me was what it did for my arms: they were covered with what appears to be red welts, and I had a spot that I had bumped and abraded that had not healed completely in two years; ProKera has greatly reduced the welts (doctors told me they would never go away) and the abrasion is well healed. Your lotion is a blessing."
~ Robert C., San Francisco, CA
"I love your lotion. I have diabetes and I used to have terrible heel cracks but they're all gone now. My podiatrist recommended ProKera 10% and I've been using it ever since. I put it on my heels right after my shower and my feet never crack any more. What a relief!"
~ Susan K., Portland, OR
"I have problems with deep splits especially on the tips of my thumbs. I have lupus disease, which causes me not to heal very easily. I put the ProKera cream on, rubbing it into the splits everyday for a couple of weeks and finally those areas have healed. I have used many other creams for months but nothing else has helped. Thank you so much for sharing your product with me."
~ Terri G., Spokane, WA
"I have lupus which makes my skin itch constantly. Often I will scratch it raw, which is not only painful but unsightly. This itching would keep me up at night. It was terribly embarrassing when I would be out somewhere scratching arms, legs, feet. This has been a problem for 12 years and I've tried everything; oatmeal baths, baking soda, every cream I could find, but nothing worked. A friend was having itching problems and her dermatologist told her to use ProKera. She let me try some and the next day I got some for myself. It works!!! I am so pleased with your product. It's been such a relief to find something that actually does the job. ...You have an excellent product and a very satisfied customer. ProKera has really made a difference in my life."
~ Betsy M., Spokane, WA
"My dad suffered from heart trouble and his feet had deep cracks and were bleeding. I decided to try your care regimen of washing his feet, putting on the lotion, and putting on socks. After the third treatment, the cracks were healed over. His feet kept getting better with each treatment til they were completely free of splits and were smooth as can be. I'm not a lotion person, but I believe in ProKera."
~ Gail J., Cheney
"I was tired of trying all those products for my extremely dry skin. You name it, I've tried it. Your ProKera is the only one that works. I'm so impressed that my hands are no longer cracking and bleeding. My order arrived promptly and your website was informative."
~ Charlene M., Washington, PA
"I'm very satisfied with ProKera. We use it everyday. It is the only one I have found that keeps my skin from cracking and drying out. Before I started using it, I couldn't even wear black slacks. My skin was so dry it looked like a snowstorm when I took off my slacks. Not any more! I wish I had found it 25 years ago. My aunt introduced it to me and raved about how good it worked and how little you need to use to get results. My husband is diabetic and uses it on his feet everyday."
~ Carol M., Maplewood, MN
"ProKera is absolutely the only product that heals and keeps under control my split finger tips. Thank you."
~ Sandy S., Casper, WY
"I'm a 59-year-old man who's been on dialysis for almost four years. For Christmas this year, I was blessed with a kidney transplant. I'm enjoying the process of getting my life back to normal. I wear a mask and rubber gloves whenever I leave home to protect my new organ, prevent infection, and possibly an organ rejection. I take 15 pills every morning and 14 at night. One of the side effects of dialysis and all this medication is dry skin. Recently, the rubber gloves have made my hands very irritated, red, and sore, so my nurse gave me ProKera. I noticed as soon as I put it on that it immediately relieved the soreness on my hands. After only a few applications, my hands are just fine and the ProKera continues to protect them from the effects of the gloves. I particularly like the smooth texture, that it is unscented, it only takes a little bit to do the trick and it lasts a long time. I believe in ProKera!"
