How To UseApply our Keratosis Pilaris Lipid Repair Emollient 1-2 times daily to all areas of skin that are prone to KP, including the backs of the arms, upper thighs, cheeks, buttocks, and back. For best results, use the cream on damp skin after bathing and continue use for at least 3-6 months. After all, some good things—like smooth, healthier looking skin—take time.
The Power of CoconutUltra hydration and lipid repair are at the heart of our method for soothing KP-prone skin. We chose organic coconut oil as our star ingredient because it’s loaded with fatty acids that protect the skin barrier and help seal in moisture—just what dry, irritated skin needs. Plus, it has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the redness associated with KP.
What is Keratosis Pilaris?Keratosis pilaris, also known as chicken skin, is a common skin condition caused by the build-up of dead skin cells around hair follicles. It results in tiny, rough bumps that can be irritating and sometimes itchy, and most often show up on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, and/or buttocks.
Gentle enough for the most sensitive skin. Paraben-Free. Never tested on animals.
Working each day to minimize my KP issue - this cream does a great job- no smell - no greasy feel - in time I expect my KP will diminish to the point where I will be able to wear short sleeves without embarrassment..
Noticed some bumps on thighs during a diaper change. Heard good things about this cream and picked some up. After using for the past week the bumps are definitely less noticeable!
I’m 38 years old and just had my 3rd baby. My skin has become so dry and I had bumps on the back of my arms. I tried everything. I started researching what would help and found this product. It WORKED! I use it right after I shower. I even use it on my face after my skincare routine to add more moisture! Im bump free! This is the only lotion I’ve ever bought and used it all like every drop and ordered more! Thank you! I am a happy thankful customer!
This product is outstanding, very soothing and healing. My toddler son developed kp on his cheeks and back of the arms. We have been using KP Away for approx. 9 weeks and so far we have seen great improvement. His skin has become very smooth, red “dots” are getting smaller and fading and the “blemishes” left by old bumps are vanishing. The kp on the back of his arms is almost completely gone. I also would like to mention that the customer service we have received from the KP Away folks has been great. They have answered all our questions promptly and provided good recommendations on how to use the product.
After the dermatologist diagnosed him with kp, he recommended to use a moisturizer with salicylic acid, which we used for several weeks. While we saw his skin getting “smoother” (the bigger pimple-liked bumps reduced significantly, although smaller bumps remained), his face still showed red spots, irritation and red “dots” (not raised). We realized this approach while effective treating some “symptoms” was not attacking the root cause of the problem and could potentially increase irritation. We needed something different.
After searching for alternative treatments, we came across KP Away and its novel approach to treating kp, which resonated to me primarily because it redefined the root cause of the problem as lack of essential lipids in the skin vs. a lack of exfoliation. We decided to switch to KP Away to treat the problem at the source (deep moisturization, lipid repairing and rebuilding), reduce the irritation and redness and establish a treatment sustainable in the long run (not based on acids or “harsh” stuff that could exacerbate irritation).
We apply KP Away once daily after his evening bath (to clean his face we use a very gentle sensitive skin baby wash). The cream feels great, it’s easy to apply and absorbs quickly. I love the fact that because it is not based on exfoliating acids, we can apply more liberally without concerns about irritation the next day (which we had seen with the salicylic acid-based moisturizer) or increased sun sensitivity. This allows his skin to “relax” while keeping the kp at bay. Also, per Anar’s recommendation we stopped using chemical sunscreen and switched to mineral sunscreen (we noticed the previous sunscreen was creating irritation). The Badger Baby Sunscreen has been a great complement to KP Away (organic, simple ingredients, very soothing, etc), which we apply every morning before school or playing outside.
I am planning to update this review at the 3, 6 and 12 month mark. We intend to continue using KP Away for the foreseeable future. My advice to parents: be patient and faithful. This product works! Thank you Anar and Carly for a great product!
I have had this awful KP stuff since I was a kid and it is hereditary. Nothing seems to work. Using harsh loofahs only seems to make it worse. This is the first product that seems to work. The company also sent me a handwritten thank you note that was signed by a person and it via computer. That was great to see. Please keep selling this stuff because I have had people ask me if I had chicken pox or a disease as a teen when it was just KP, and thankfully, now the red bumps are diminishing using this product. I am 47 now and wish I had this in my younger years. - Brandi in TX
