ZO Skin Health Introduces Oraser Cellulite Control Cream

ZO Skin Health’s new Oraser Cellulite Control is formulated to offer instant firming effects, visibly improve the skin’s texture, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. In addition to smoothing skin and diminishing the “orange peel” appearance, the crème also helps improve microcirculation, reduce skin contour, encourage the production of collagen for firmer skin, and restore hydration to support a healthy skin barrier function. Oraser Cellulite Control contains a blend of ingredients that reduce thigh contour appearance. Plankton extract provides a slimming and toning effect by increasing cellular and tissue metabolism, which in turn improves muscle tone. Saccharide isomerate minimizes new “nightly” fat deposits by interrupting the body’s natural circadian rhythm, as well as stimulates new collagen for added firming benefits. Caffeine, coenzyme A, and carnitine accelerate the breakdown of fat tissue by enhancing metabolism, and carrageenan extract provides instant firming and tightening effects to visibly improve skin texture and the appearance of cellulite. Phosphatidylcholine stimulates fat-destroying lipase enzymes, a vital digestive enzyme that helps the body process and absorb fat. The product will be available in March.

New from Coppertone:
Whipped Sunscreen

Coppertone is rolling out new Whipped formula sunscreens. The new formulas are available in the CLEARLYSheer and WaterBABIES Pure & Simple line. “For my patients, one of the biggest barriers to using everyday sun protection is that they dislike how the products feel on skin,” says Elizabeth K. Hale, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Dermatology at the New York University School of Medicine and consultant to the makers of Coppertone® products, in a news release. “Whipped sunscreens not only solve this problem, they also improve the likelihood that people will reapply to themselves and their children, which is essential for protecting their skin against UVA and UVB rays.”

COPPERTONE CLEARLYSheer Whipped Sunscreens are available in SPF 30 and 50. Coppertone WaterBABIES Pure & Simple Whipped Sunscreen is available in SPF 50.

Alongside the new Coppertone Whipped launches, the company is also introducing Coppertone WaterBABIES Pure & Simple Free Sunscreen, Coppertone Sport Stick SPF 50, Coppertone WaterBABIES Pure & Simple Stick SPF 50, and Coppertone Sport Lip Balm SPF 50.

PuraCap: Video Available to Educate Families, Children

A new video from PuraCap Pharmaceutical explores the effects of childhood eczema and how parents and kids can find relief. The video can be downloaded by visiting

As many as one out of every three kids suffers from this chronic skin condition. Beyond the constant itching, irritation, and distraction caused by this skin disease, many children also endure bullying, teasing, and a hit to their self-esteem due to the inflamed, rough patches. When left untreated, eczema, which may begin during infancy, continues on into the child’s teenage years and often lasts into adulthood. In fact, according to a survey by PuraCap Pharmaceutical, six in 10 adults report lower confidence as a result of eczema.

While many dermatologists agree that repairing the skin barrier is key to successful treatment, PuraCap says 50 percent of consumers are not familiar with skin barrier repair products. In fact, the number one treatment used to combat eczema is over-the-counter moisturizers, which may grant temporary relief, but don’t provide lasting hydration or any repair.

“Eczema-afflicted skin has fundamental issues with the protective skin barrier,” shares Dr. Jessie Cheung, Board-certified Dermatologist in Illinois. “EpiCeram replenishes the lost lipids in the skin with a unique blend of ceramides, cholesterol, and free fatty acids to help rebuild the skin barrier and bind moisture in the skin while keeping irritants out.”

With a unique controlled-release technology, EpiCeram delivers 24-hour barrier repair benefits with just twice-daily application. EpiCeram is only available by prescription.
