DALLAS, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- X-Change Corp. (NASDAQ OTC: XCHC), a U.S. Company specializing in cannabinoid formulation-based health solutions through its Phytiva brand product lines is excited to confirm continued emphasis on new product development beyond recently announced European and extract-based lines. One of the several opportunities being explored by the Company is a new retail product line developed in conjunction with Steven B. Hopping, M.D., F.A.C.S., renowned cosmetic surgeon and Senior Medical Advisor of X-Change Corp. All of the Company's products will be available through the store at the Company's newly upgraded website at www.phytiva.com, launched last week with its innovative Patient Resource Center for sharing of information on a patient-to-patient basis.
Dr. Hopping joined the X-Change Corp team earlier this year. The Company's chief operating officer, Chad Johnson, was involved with Dr. Hopping's surgical and skincare practice for years prior to joining the Company. The Company and Dr. Hopping are discussing the expansion of their respective product lines to meet the increasing demand for affordable, high-end, anti-aging and therapeutic skin care treatments. Consumer awareness has significantly increased among women and men of all ages that quality formulations enhance skin health and appearance, and the Company believes that a joint venture between the Company and Dr. Hopping would be mutually advantageous and a great addition to product offerings already in the pipeline.
"As we move quickly to market with the Company's European Line of products and extracts, we continue to seek out additional opportunities in the skincare and related markets worldwide," said Chad Johnson, X-Change Corp. Chief Operating Officer. "As the Company's profile grows, so do the opportunities available to the Company to enhance currently planned product development and marketing. In addition to discussions with Dr. Hopping about a new line is an opportunity that would target the consumers of Central and South America. More details will be forthcoming on this later this quarter."
