New Larger Size Packaging and Formulas Eliminate Preservatives/Enhance Rosacea Treatment
New in 2010, the sizes of the most popular rosacea moisturizers (Rosacea Treatment Fluid, Rosacea Treatment Cream and Rosacea Cooling Lotion) have been increased to 50 ml/1.7 fl. oz. from 30 ml./1 fl. oz. upon the availability of new hermetic (airtight) packaging.
Previously, the maximum size available without the need for paraben and other preservative additives was 30 ml./1 fl. oz.
Omission of preservatives has many documented benefits for rosacea patients (see Avoid Paraben Preservatives in Rosacea Skin Care) as well as those with especially sensitive skin and allergies (see Preservatives in Skin Care and Skin Irritation), including reduced skin inflammation, tingling, itching, burning, sun damage (see Paraben Preservatives and Sun Damage) and chemical exposure.
However it is not possible to create elaborate formulas for mass-market distribution without chemical preservation and, typically, a reduction in the amount of bioavailable ingredients used.
Rosacea Treatment Clinic formulas are produced in small batches under sterile laboratory conditions for immediate and select distribution to rosacea patients.
The naturally bacteriostatic formulas (remaining free of bacteria without added preservatives) do not lose potency, however must be used within a period of time after opening (varying depending on the product) and protected from excess temperatures and direct light.
The new hermetic (airtight) packaging for Rosacea Treatment Fluid, Rosacea Treatment Cream and Rosacea Cooling Lotion, which replaces the previous sterile glass jars, allows for greater product volume without risk of deterioration or potency.
As an added benefit, the vacuum pump-style packaging extracts all product for use, ensuring none is wasted.
