Read This Before You Try the "Baby Foot" Craze
A quick scroll through the page will do two things to you. First, it will gross you out. The images of people's feet in various states of peeling is notsomething you want to look at while you're eating. Second, it will spark your curiosity—after all, who wouldn't be amazed by such a crazy product?
Here's how Baby Foot claims to work, according to its site:
"Our scientifically formulated product contains 17 types of natural extracts which exfoliate and moisturize at the same time. The principal ingredient of Baby Foot is fruit acid which is very gentle, when compared with other acids. The fruit acid penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which hold the layers together. By this process, skin is undamaged but peels easily away from the fresh layer beneath."
On top of promising to reveal healthier, softened feet, Baby Soft says it can improve foot issues like athlete's foot, foot odor, and blood circulation—lofty medical claims for a cosmetic item you can buy online. Yet the product's site is full of testimonials from customers raving that it is "revolutionary" and its results are "remarkable." Still, we wanted to check with experts on the topic—because when something seems too good to be true, it often is.
The first issue: What's in it? Baby Foot's site says it contains "17 types of natural extracts," but it's tough to find out what else is actually in Baby Foot. "They do not list the ingredients on their site, which is a bit odd," says Michele Green, M.D., a New York City dermatologist andRealSelfcontributor. "'Naturally exfoliating' could be anything from sugar to salt to papaya or avocado, but again, since the ingredients aren't on their site, it is difficult to interpret." Remember: The term "natural" doesn't actually mean anything, legally speaking. It's a market buzz term often used to draw in customers concerned with their safety.
However, Beauty.com, a retailer that sells Baby Foot online, contains a full ingredient list that states the first four ingredients are water, alcohol, lactic acid, and glycolic acid. Several other fruit-related acids are cited as well, but it's important to note that on the actual ingredients list, similar chemical exfoliants to those typically recommended by dermatologists are listed. That said, both lactic acid and glycolic acid have been cited as potentially irritating—and it could be misleading to insinuate that Baby Foot is "gentle" if these ingredients are involved.
How It Actually Works
Okay, so we've established it has some serious ingredients, but how does it achieve such dramatic results? "It's like a chemical peel," explains Margarita Lolis, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in New Jersey. "Lactic acid, salicylic acid, alcohol, and glycolic acid are keratolytic, so they get into the top layer of your skin, break up the connections in the dead skin cells, and two to three days later, the dead skin peels off."
Still, while its ingredients are effective on many folks' skin, it's important to note that these are still acids, and you should check with a medical professional before actually starting on a chemically exfoliating regimen. "I would caution that if you have any warts, corn callouses, open sores, or skin sensitivity, you should definitely skip this," warns Dr. Lolis.
It's also disconcerting that this product says it can help medical issues like athlete's foot and circulation. "They are suggesting medical benefits, which cosmetics shouldn't make, as per FDA regulations," notes Birnur Aral, Ph.D., director of the Beauty Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute.
What You Can Try Instead
If you decide to skip Baby Foot, don't worry—you can still get the summer-ready feet you seek. The Beauty Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute reviewed kits for at-home pedicures and found the Dr. Scholl's Express Pedi Foot Smoother (.99, Amazon.com) and Amope Pedi Perfect (.84, Amazon.com) performed excellently in smoothing testers' feet. You can also visit your dermatologist if you wish to have similar treatment to the Baby Foot performed by a medical professional.
