We just got back from our paed. derm. and she informed us that we can't get mimyx or atopiclair here,in Canada. She says that it's basically a "glorified moisurizer" with no drug ingredients and thus, shouldn't even be classified as a drug.
Apparently, the 'active' ingredient is licorice (also found in Eucerine's 'Redness Relief' lotion). Anyway, I know that some of you have experience with these products and I would like to know if we're missing out on anything...our derm. claims that as far as she knows, it's a lot of hype but I would like to know from the "soldiers in the trenches." As well, if you have an opinion on Triceram or something similar (containing ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids), I would like to hear it.
