MaMa Lotion is a anti-aging gel compounded with Mandelic Acid and Malic Acid, two ingredients that the manufacturers claim provide everlasting moisturization to the skin. Along with these claimed benefits, it also supposedly helps enhance the glow of skin, and absorbs into the skin after 10 minutes of application. The makres of MaMa Lotion provide ample before and after photos, along with a list of internet retailers where the product is sold. Unfortunately, this is about as complicated as it gets, and it does not really explain how these acids work safely with the skin. They only state expected results, such as improved reduction in acne-related scars, the elimination of fine line and wrinkles, and the reduced presence of Rosacea.
MaMa Lotion is currently sold for $44.50, but the bottle is small — mostly because it is designed for light application. Still, some consumers may prefer a bigger bottle for its value. The application is noticeably sticky in texture, which may turn some consumers off.
MaMa Lotion states it is a concentrated mixture of Mandelic Acid and Malic Acid. No other ingredients have been disclosed for this product. Mandelic Acid is a relatively new substance that is sometimes utilized during chemical peels because of its sticky texture; Malic Acid is a well documented extract that is a strong exfoliant. Studies show that Malic Acid helps remove dead skin cells and bind to toxicities in the body, acting like a chemical peel. On the downside, this causes skin peeling within a few weeks of use, but it may help promote the appearance of healthy skin by removing dead skin cells.
Beyond the initial skin peeling there are no side effects linked with either of these ingredients, and these ingredients may provide some benefits. Both ingredients do not have moisturizaiton properties, however, and also do not have any anti-wrinkle benefits. Nevertheless, this is a somewhat intriguing product.
- Malic Acid has proven exfoliant qualities.
- Numerous testimonials attest to its ability to improve the appearance of their skin.
- Ingredients may cause the skin to peel or redden.
- MaMa Lotion is only available through their website.
- Does not appear to contain any ingredient which aid in the reduction of wrinkles.
The Bottom Line
MaMa Lotion is clearly different from other creams, and the specialized emulsion may provide some benefits. These benefits may not be ideal for those searching for a legitimate anti-wrinkle agent, however, and some may seek a different product that addresses their needs. No one should mistake this for being your typical anti-wrinkle product, despite these disadvantages — this product is definitely unique, and some consumers may try it for themselves just to see the real effects of the supposed exfoliant Malic Acid. However, very little can definitively be said about MaMa Lotion.
