AVON Foot Works Intensive Callus Cream questions

Posted by libbyliz (My Page) on

Does anyone have a tube of the Intensive Callus Cream item that you can "read" off the back label to me?

I need to know:

1 - Is it medicated; meaning, are the ingredients different than what's on the website:
WATER/EAU
GLYCERIN
AMMONIUM GLYCOLATE
CETEARYL ALCOHOL
GLYCOLIC ACID
BEHENYL ALCOHOL
STEARETH-21
ETHYLHEXYL METHOXYCINNAMATE
ORYZA SATIVA (RICE) BRAN OIL
ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE
TOCOPHERYL ACETATE
BENZYL ALCOHOL
STEARETH-2
SQUALENE
MENTHOL
METHYLPARABEN
MENTHA PIPERITA (PEPPERMINT) OIL
LECITHIN
GLYCINE SOJA (SOYBEAN) OIL?

They are for the Therapeutic Cracked Heel Relief Cream. The website doesn't list the medicated ingredients.

That leads me to the next question:

2 - Do I have to stop use of this cream after a certain amount of time unless directed by a doctor?

With the Therapeutic Cracked Heel Relief Cream I was expecting to use it continuously, but I can only use it for a week, according to the back label's warnings, which also aren't listed on the website.

Thanks in advance for replies!

I have used both products. The Intensive Callus Cream is very good and no, it isn't medicated. You can use it as often as you like I believe. I love the stuff. Used 2 times a day for two weeks, my feet looked great. That reminds me, I need some.

The Therapeutic Cracked Heel Relief cream is medicated in that it has a numbing substance for the pain from cracked skin. I think this might be a problem for people with impaired circulation as with diabetes.

Go for a professional pedicure. They don't cost that much and are wonderful if you have feet that callus easily like I do. I sleep so much better at night with soft heels...no catching the sheets with scratchy uncomfortable spots on my feet. You can then maintain your feet yourself using the right products religiously if you want to. But beware; once you have a good pedicure with massage you will want to keep going back.
