Easton Pharmaceuticals Announces Positive Updates, Changes to Its OTC Therapeutic Products, Manufacturing and North American Distributorship

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2014) - Easton Pharmaceuticals (OTC: EAPH) announces updates to its OTC products, manufacturing and an expanded distribution agreement for North America.

Irrespective of various delays, all aspects of Easton's business segments and initiatives have been steadily moving forward which includes soon to be disclosed and anticipated positive developments revolving around its vaporizer and medical marijuana initiatives, which is in addition to encouraging developments relating to its investment in AMFIL Technologies, a company servicing the medical marijuana and other industries who have received well positive feedback from large growers in the State of Colorado and other jurisdictions. Easton's minority interest in its cancer drug Xilive has also had positive developments through the private efforts of its current ownership partner.

After several months of work with its suppliers, Easton's OTC product logos are finalized, its packaging providers have been selected, payment has been forwarded and received and its OTC therapeutic products are in transit. Easton is currently in the final stage of closing and announcing new expanded North American distribution agreements which should soon result in having its OTC products stocked on shelves of various retail stores and ready for sale on high ranking websites. Additional details to soon be announced.

Due to the rapidly changing country-specific regulations in Mexico regarding the handling of Niacin, one of the ingredients in Viorra and other products, Easton has made the decision to not move forward with its manufacturing in Mexico but instead will be manufactured in Canada. Many of the delays to the launch of its OTC products were as a result of changing regulatory requirements in Mexico which was initially to be its manufacturing base. The handling and ordering of large quantities of Niacin, now considered a controlled substance in many jurisdictions in Mexico, mandates that a manufacturer may require different licenses than it currently owns, and therefore may not be permitted to handle niacin any longer, even though the quantity of Niacin per unit within its products is negligible. The products can be manufactured and sold in the United States and Canada due to Niacin being below a certain threshold set by the FDA. Once the products are manufactured they will also be transported and sold in Mexico through its distributor BMV Medica, S.A de C.V.

BMV Medica, S.A. de C.V., a Mexican regulatory company and distributor of pharmaceutical products has now included in its product list Easton Pharma's Skin Renou HA, an anti-aging cream containing Easton's proprietary formulation including hyaluronic acid, and Kenestrin Gel a topical, odourless and colorless treatment for arthritis. BMV Medica S.A. de C.V., is the company's regulatory and distribution agent for Mexico, other Latin American territories and now the middle east.
