OKLAHOMA CITY, April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Haus Bioceuticals announced today that MetaDerm Heal & Prevent cream, a clinically-proven over-the-counter (OTC) therapeutic botanical treatment for psoriasis, has earned the National Psoriasis Foundation Seal of Recognition. This seal highlights OTC products that are proven to safely and effectively manage the symptoms of psoriasis. Independently reviewed by a panel of dermatology medical experts and people with psoriasis, the Seal of Recognition identifies tested and trusted products that help people with psoriasis relieve their symptoms including dry, red, itchy, flaky skin.
MetaDerm Heal & Prevent cream is among one of the first products with active therapeutic botanicals to receive this prestigious seal. These anti-inflammatory botanicals help relieve skin affected by psoriasis, restore skin health, calm internal hyper-inflammation and are clinically proven to relieve itchy, red, scaly and inflamed skin. In clinical testing, MetaDerm Heal & Prevent cream showed significant improvement for psoriasis in just four weeks versus a prescription psoriasis treatment. At week 12, almost 68 percent of patients using MetaDerm obtained improvement in PASI greater than or equal to 75 percent. MetaDerm Heal & Prevent is a lightweight, fast-absorbing cream that is most effective when used twice per day and applied liberally to affected and surrounding areas. It is steroid, paraben, dye and fragrance-free.
"Meeting the requirements to receive the NPF Seal of Recognition is no easy feat," said Randy Beranek, president and CEO of the National Psoriasis Foundation. "Our standards are high and the certification process stringent. We appreciate the manufacturers that are committed to helping the psoriasis community by developing quality products that ease the symptoms of psoriasis and provide much needed relief to many."
To obtain the seal, products must go through a rigorous testing process to ensure they meet the high standards that psoriasis patients need to relieve their symptoms:
- A panel of five dermatology medical experts review and evaluate the submitted product information, testing results and samples. They must agree unanimously that the product meets the required criteria as well as relieve the symptoms of psoriasis.
- Product is then given to five testers who have moderate to severe psoriasis to evaluate it for reduction of dry, red, itchy or flaky plaques as well as for its ease of use.
- The testers must also agree that the product relieves the symptoms of psoriasis and is easy to use and apply before a Seal of Recognition is granted to a brand.
"MetaDerm was founded to bring the best of clinical science and novel therapeutic botanicals together to develop affordable, effective and clinically-proven solutions for people living with chronic skin conditions," said Michael Centola, Ph.D. and CEO of Haus Bioceuticals. "We are proud the National Psoriasis Foundation has honored MetaDerm Heal & Prevent cream with their Seal of Recognition. Our team at MetaDerm is focused on designing and delivering gentle and clinically-proven products to treat the root causes of psoriasis to help psoriasis sufferers live a lifetime of normal, flare-free skin."
