On the antioxidant front, FLAVO-C ULTRAGLICAN with Vitamin C and Ultraglicans reduces the appearance of micro-wrinkles and augments moisture production, while FLAVO-C SERUM combines Vitamin C and Gingko Biloba for protection against UV-induced free radicals and rejuvenation.

SebuDerm Gel Available

Microcyn-based SebuDerm Gel is now available in the US. The US commercialization is being handled by IntraDerm’s 19-person direct sales team. IntraDerm is a division of Oculus Innovative Science. As a prescription product, SebuDerm Gel is intended to manage and relieve the burning, itching, erythema, scaling, and pain experienced with seborrhea and seborrheic dermatitis.  The gel, which was granted FDA 510(k) clearance late last year, also helps to relieve dry, waxy skin by maintaining a moist wound and skin environment, which is beneficial to the healing process.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl), such as that found in Microcyn Technology, has been shown in non-clinical studies to kill bacteria, viruses, spores, and fungi through well-studied mechanisms of action, including denaturation, a process in which the structure of surface proteins on the microorganism are irreversibly changed or damaged.  This results in the destruction of pathogen. Human bodies have evolved over thousands of years to produce HOCl naturally to kill infection-causing microbes quickly and without presenting the opportunity for those pathogens to mutate and become resistant. Oculus believes it has chemically engineered its Microcyn Technology to mimic the body’s natural response to unwanted organisms, without the undesirable side effects resulting from the overuse of antibiotics.

New Day Cream, Gel Oil from Cerave

Cerave is expanding their Renewing product line. A new Cerave Skin Renewing Day Cream with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen and Skin Renewing Gel Oil now join existing products in this line including Renewing Cream Serum and Renewing Night Cream. The gel is first product to contain Ceraplex– a 5-ceramide mix (2,3,6-11 and w-acyl 1 and 1A) combined with sunflower oil—to help to restore the skin barrier without clogging pores, said New York City dermatologist Marnie Nussbaum, MD, at a media event in New York City. The sunscreen comprises encapsulated retinol.

New from Topix: Replenix Pure Hydration Moisture Balm

The latest from Topix Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Replenix® Pure Hydration Moisture Balm, targets dry and aging skin. Various molecular weights of hyaluronic acid draw moisture into the skin and work with yucca glauca root and glycerin, which restore plumpness and firmness. In addition, high concentrations of oil-free emollients including squalane and vitamin E help soften and restore severely dehydrated skin. A proprietary Biomimetic Ceramide Complex mimics the ceramides found naturally in skin to help prevent trans-epidermal water loss and improve elasticity and texture. The balm also layers on antioxidants for added relief and protection from free radicals. Available in a 1.7 oz. jar and suitable for all skin types especially those with extremely dry skin, the new balm is non-comedogenic, oil, paraben, sulfate and alcohol free.
