Why does the skin on the soles of my feet become hardened, rough and dry?

Dry skin generally occurs as a result of depletion of water from the stratum corneum (the top layer of the skin), which may be a result of environmental factors. Thickened skin commonly forms on the bottom of the foot, and this skin can be 30 times thicker than the skin on other parts of the body. Corns and calluses are often a result of your skin thickening to protect itself from pressure or friction.

If you have diabetes or a condition that impacts blood flow to your feet, rough, dry, and cracked skin and corns and calluses may put you at risk for other complications.

How do the Kamea® products work?

Kamea® G is a glycolic acid cream which exfoliates scale while conditioning, moisturizing and improving the appearance of build up scaleand callused skin. Kamea® G i is applied twice a day, as a spot treatment, to the areas of built-up scale and callused skin on the sole of the foot. After a few weeks of use, patients typically will discontinue the use of Kamea® G and begin using Kamea® 20.

Glycolic acid can penetrate the thick skin that often forms on the sole of the foot to soften and exfoliate scale and callusing. They glycolic acid reacts with the lipid matrix of the skin (the glue that holds the dead skin cells together), weakening the binding of the dead skin cells.
