They all face a number of challenges for skin repair including, infection, slow wound healing, and scaring. Most over the counter and cosmetic products moisturize and only marginally impact the needed healing process of the skin.

How it works

Consumers who have experienced damage to their skin, whether by skin disease or by injury from dermatological treatments, want a trusted product with science behind the active ingredients.

  • They read the labels looking for ingredients they know are safe and active.
  • They don’t want a steroid or antibiotic, due to the side effects.
  • Consumers are seeking a product that will sooth and reduce redness and encourage the skin to heal.

The patented technology, provides relief and recovery from damaged skin. It acts as a potent functional product to relieve redness, itching, burning, soreness, and peeling.
