You might want to consult with some local traditional medicine healers and see what kinds of herbs they use for skin issues. It's been my experience that the people who know the most about herbs are those that have the knowledge of their use passed down to them. Are there any people like this in the Philippines?

yup but most of the time those herbs are for common ailments like headache, stomachache, cough. But in my case I want and is looking for are herbs that made to be for keratosis pilaris and probably used for cosmetics particularly in smoothening the skin. How about you in your place?

Lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid , These are natural acids that are used for treating KP. I would try Lactic acid first because it the most gentle and hydrating.

help with Keratosis
For my 12 year old daughter I have found a product that increases Glutathione levels and after 3 months it has helped her Keratosis. We have tried every over the counter treatment as well as prescriptions. No only does she have more energy, her hair is stronger and skin is looking beautiful. The product is Max Gxl by max international.
