As the body’s largest organ, the skin is constantly exposed to the elements and is susceptible to a wide variety of conditions. Whether triggered by external factors such as sun exposure or internal factors such as immune system function, skin conditions that cause redness, bumps, lesions and other blemishes can be a major source of discomfort and embarrassment for people. PyratineXR® is a breakthrough, multi-functional product clinically proven to treat many skin conditions and concerns such as acne rosacea, photodamaged skin, dryness and, perhaps the most prevalent, sensitive, irritated skin.
More than 16 million Americans suffer from rosacea, a condition that causes embarrassing and uncomfortable acne-like lesions, redness, dry, patchy skin and spider veins on the face. Alarmingly, millions more are likely suffering with undiagnosed rosacea. Traditional rosacea treatments involve harsh, acid-containing topical ointments that can further irritate and dry out the skin. Oral antibiotics are another common treatment for rosacea, but they cannot be used long-term due to their negative impact on beneficial gut flora.
Until now, no existing treatment has addressed all three of the main symptoms of rosacea—redness, inflammatory lesions, and spider veins. PyratineXR® is the first clinically proven topical solution to effectively treat all three.
The sun is vital to our health and well-being, but intentional tanning, accidental sunburns and everyday sun exposure cause irreversible damage to our skin that eventually leads to lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, blotchiness and uneven skin tone. For most of us, 80 percent of damage to our skin from sun exposure happens before the age of 18. The sun’s ultraviolet rays damage elastin fibers, which keep skin looking firm and taut. When elastin breaks down, the skin begins to sag, wrinkle and stretch. Repairing photodamaged skin requires restoring essential moisture and treating the skin from within with powerful antioxidants and products that slow the destruction of fibroblasts, the units in skin cells that produce collagen and elastin.
Dry skin is a significant concern for many people. It can make skin feel tight and itchy, and often gives skin a rough, dull and lifeless appearance. People with dry skin may experience flaking, cracking and peeling, even causing the skin to bleed in serious cases. A variety of factors and behaviors can cause dry skin, including low humidity levels, hot showers, scrubbing the skin and using drying soaps or products that contain irritants. While many of these causes can be easily addressed with lifestyle changes, others have their roots in medical conditions like rosacea, atopic dermatitis or eczema. Skin conditions like these require a powerful protective moisturizer that restores the skin barrier function and prevents water loss.
Having sensitive skin can be a real challenge, limiting the kinds of products people can use. Those with sensitive skin often report experiencing stinging and burning when applying products to their face and feeling like they “can’t use anything” at all. Limiting the number of products used on the skin, especially on the face, is essential for reducing potential irritants. The average skin care product contains dozens of inactive ingredients in addition to its active ingredient(s). Using three products, for example, a moisturizer, an anti-inflammatory and an anti-aging product can mean exposing the skin to up to 100 chemicals or more. Multi-functional PyratineXR® is a powerful anti-inflammatory which dramatically reduces redness, a clinically proven anti-aging product which significantly ameliorates the signs of aging skin, and a highly effective moisturizer, helping the skin to avoid water loss while soothing sensitive, irritated skin—all in a single product.
