MIAMI BEACH, Fla., June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Divine Skin today announced that it was granted a Drug Enforcement Agency license in partnership with its manufacturing partner to produce and distribute Ephedrine containing drugs and other controlled substances.
The Company has started working on a new OTC analgesic, which it believes could provide an alternative to current OTC pain relievers. Receiving this mandatory license is the final step in commencing manufacturing of its OTC pain reliever.
In the United States alone, manufacturers' revenue from internal non-narcotic analgesics, antipyretics, anti-arthritics, and anti-inflammatories, including salicylates and acetaminophen, totaled $2.4 billion in 2009, according to an August 2010 report published by the US Census Bureau.
