The Sensitive Skin Solution: Medline Introduces Remedy® With Phytoplex™ to Replenish and Protect Sensitive Skin

Phytoplex Comprised of a Complex Blend of Botanical Ingredients Featuring Blue Green Algae

MUNDELEIN, IL--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) -  As skin ages with time or experiences excessive sun exposure, it produces less collagen and elastin, key building blocks in healthy skin. Today, Medline Industries, Inc., the nation's largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies, introduced Remedy® with Phytoplex™, a highly advanced skin care system for sensitive and damaged skin. A blend of the latest advances in biotechnology and molecular biology, Remedy® with Phytoplex™ is specifically designed and developed to nourish and soothe the skin, act as a structural moisturizer and help protect sensitive skin from free radical damage. 

"Medline strongly believes and applies the advanced technology of silicones and the use of natural, botanical ingredients that enhance skin protection and comfort as well as help improve outcomes," said Jonathan Primer, President of Medline's Advanced Skin and Wound Care division. "When we first launched the Remedy® with Olivamine® line in 2004, it set off excitement throughout the entire healthcare community because of its remarkable clinical outcomes. Today, we are thrilled to grow that momentum with Remedy® with Phytoplex™ and provide necessary care for people with the most sensitive skin -- from neonate to geriatric and diabetic to oncology patients."

Phytoplex™ is a proprietary blend of all-natural ingredients from complex botanical and marine sources. The main nutritional ingredient is blue green algae, a marine-based element from fresh water microalgae found only in Klamath Lake, OR. These ingredients penetrate deep within the skin surface to modulate activity that has the potential to affect the skin matrix. In addition, the ingredient blend helps to replenish elements and nutrients at the skin surface that may be diminished by external or internal factors such as radiation therapy or disease.

Remedy® with Phytoplex™ is the culmination of a clinical need for skin care products intended for the most sensitive skin. The blend is formulated without aloe, parabens, sulfates, phthalates or petroleum derivatives. The line currently includes gentle cleaners, rich moisturizers and petroleum-free lip balm. Later this year, the line will add skin protectant, sunscreen and oral care products.
