Albolene has been around for decades as a makeup remover, but has been
used by professional athletes, especially boxers, to meet their weigh-in
requirements when a couple of pounds could mean disqualification from a
bout. Also known as Hydroxatone, Albolene?s primary function is as a
moisturizing skin cleanser, but the product website has a complete
section on its weight-loss abilities. Although the company?s claims
sound reasonable, some health and beauty professionals are skeptical.
