Every Form of Eczema & Dermatitis is a
result of these common TWO problems:

Problem 1:
Unbalanced Skin Microbiome

When the skin’s microbiome is dominated by “bad bacteria,”(commonly staph) this can cause the immune system to wildly overreact with inflammation as a result.

Problem 2:
Lack of "Inflammation Brakes"

The inability of the immune system to cope with this inflammation inevitably leads to the unbearable symptoms of eczema and dermatitis.

SmartLotion® is the ONLY eczema cream in the world
that directly addresses both root causes at once:

The Pure Element Sulfur

The sulfur acts as a prebiotic, which addresses the bad bacteria prevalence in the skin's microbiome and reduces inflammation-causing super antigens.

Low-Strength Hydrocortisone

Due to its lower concentration and the added protection provided by sulfur, the hydrocortisone helps your immune system put the "brakes" on your inflammation without causing side effects.

Relief Without The Side Effects!

SmartLotion® is based on a one-of-a-kind formula that combines a safe concentration of hydrocortisone (FDA approved for anti-itch) with the double-action properties of sulfur which lowers the level of harmful bacteria in your skin’s microbiome while shielding against any of the side effects associated with high strength steroids.

60 Days Satisfaction Guarantee

When you buy SmartLotion®, you have nothing to lose! We're so confident you'll love this eczema cream that we're offering a 60 days money back guarantee on all orders. If you're not satisfied at any point during this period, simply return your order for a full refund — no questions asked!

are thrilled with their results:

Meet Dr. Steve Harlan, MD

The bright mind behind SmartLotion®!

The invention of this product would not have been possible without Dr. Steve Harlan's tireless efforts. SmartLotion® is originally based on a classic compounding pharmacy formula from the 70's.

When Big Pharma began pushing dangerous prescription steroids in the 90's as the treatment for eczema and dermatitis, he noticed that those solutions could only treat severe flare-ups, and were too strong for extended and preventative use. This left many patients struggling to find a solution for mild, recurring dermatitis.

In response, Dr. Steve Harlan brought back a traditional formula found only in compounding pharmacies and created SmartLotion® in order to provide his patients with a safe and effective way to manage their dermatitis long-term.

Thus, SmartLotion® was born — a unique combination of hydrocortisone and sulfur: the first has potent anti-inflammatory properties, the other can reset the imbalance in your skin's microbiome while also making the hydrocortisone entirely safe for long-term use. Since then, Dr. Harlan has used it in clinical settings to treat over 20,000 patients for all forms of dermatitis and eczema over the last 30 years!

What conditions can Dr. Harlan treat with SmartLotion®?

Dr. Harlan uses SmartLotion® to treat every type of recurring dermatitis and eczema. He also combines it with prescription treatments for improved control of conditions like Rosacea and Psoriasis. For information on how Dr. Harlan treats every possible type of dermatitis with the exact instructions he provides to his patients, click here.

What conditions can SmartLotion® not help with?

SmartLotion® cannot help with viral infections, fungal infections and stable, physical changes to the skin (such as moles or morphea). For a complete list of conditions that SmartLotion® cannot assist with, please click here.

Where can I safely apply SmartLotion®?

Any and all skin areas. For sensitive areas like the face, Dr. Harlan typically suggests his patients apply SmartLotion® 2x per day for up to 2 weeks, then taper down. For thicker skin areas like the hands and feet, Dr. Harlan typically suggests 4x applications per day for up to 4 weeks followed by tapering.

How much SmartLotion® should I order?

SmartLotion® usage depends on the skin condition and the affected area. For facial seborrheic dermatitis, Dr. Harlan typically sees his patients get clear skin after just a few applications, and uses only a single bottle every 4 to 5 months. Atopic dermatitis that covers large areas of the body, however, can require up to 3 bottles every 2 weeks for the 1st month, then 3 bottles per month after that. Refer to Dr. Harlan’s condition protocols for how often he typically recommends applying SmartLotion® to his patients.

It’s important to note that SmartLotion® is not a moisturizer and should not be used as such. Per Dr. Harlan’s instructions, SmartLotion® should only be applied as a thin, disappearing layer. The formula is extremely thick, and a small amount goes a long way.

What moisturizers does Dr. Harlan recommend?

The #1 recommended moisturizer by Dr. Harlan is CeraVe® Cream. #2 is CeraVe® lotion. For a complete list of recommended moisturizers, click here.

Does SmartLotion® interact with any medication?

No. SmartLotion® does not interact with any medications, so it can be used safely by those who take medication regularly. Dr. Harlan has found that SmartLotion® actually makes many topical prescription medications work better, such as biologic therapy for psoriasis.

I am allergic to Sulfa drugs, can I still use SmartLotion®?

Yes. The natural prebiotic sulfur featured in our SmartLotion® formula is completely unrelated to Sulfa drugs (common antibiotics).

Is SmartLotion® safe for children?

The FDA has not cleared hydrocortisone for use in children under 2. When planning to use SmartLotion® on your child, be sure to do so with your Dermatologist or Pediatrician's supervision.

How long does it take to see results after you start using SmartLotion®?

Dr. Harlan has found that the time it takes to see results typically depends upon the severity of the condition he is treating. Most of his patients experience itch and pain relief almost immediately, or within 1 to 2 days. However, conditions like atopic dermatitis can take up to 3 to 4 weeks to show improvement as long as the patient follows Dr. Harlan’s instructions (like the instructions found in the condition protocols section of the knowledgebase).

I think I may be allergic to an ingredient in SmartLotion®. How do I test for this allergy before I use the product?

To find out if you are allergic to SmartLotion®, apply a small chocolate chip-sized dollop of the product to an inner forearm once daily for three days. If you have an allergic reaction, send the product back for a full refund.

Do you offer refunds? How do I get my money back?

We offer a 60-day satisfaction guarantee for all purchases. If you aren’t satisfied for ANY reason whatsoever, just send it back for a full refund. For complete refund instructions, click here.

What should I do if I do not see results from SmartLotion®?

If you don't see any results, check the knowledgebase and make sure you are following the instructions. Dr. Harlan has found that the most common reason for a lack of results is the patient not moisturizing enough. However, you can always reach out to us at support@harlanmd.com if you have any questions or concerns.
