Newly Appointed President of The Acne and Rosacea Society of Canada Launches Natural Line for Rosacea and Sensitive Prone Skin

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 16, 2014) - Riversol Skin Care Solutions Inc. has officially launched Riversol MD, a new dermatologist developed skin care line specifically created to help manage rosacea-prone skin without the use of drugs or harsh chemicals. Coinciding with the launch is the appointment of Riversol founder, Dr. Jason K. Rivers as President of the Acne and Rosacea Society of Canada, a new national, non-profit organization led by dermatologists.

Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory, skin condition that affects more than 8 million Canadians and 45 million men and women worldwide and is often mistaken for sensitive or acne-prone skin or allergies. The reality of Rosacea for many means dealing with a long-term skin condition that can wreak havoc on skin causing redness on the face characterized by a tendency to flush and blush after exposure to various triggers such as stress, sunlight, spicy foods and alcohol.

Given that both acne and rosacea primarily appear on the face and affect appearance, those suffering often deal with a significant amount of emotional distress and depression in addition to the visible physical signs and possible permanent skin damage. Riversol MD skin care is a specially formulated lineup of products designed to help alleviate this suffering.

Riversol MD's dermatologist developed 3-Step System contains powerful and innovative anti-oxidants and is free from gluten, parabens, mineral oil and formaldehyde and other irritating ingredients to ensure delicate skin is carefully treated.

"Managing skin that is ultra-sensitive or rosacea-prone can be challenging. That said, patients respond overwhelmingly well to Riversol MD products, reporting long lasting relief that not only calms and properly hydrates the skin, but restores confidence as well," shares Dr. Rivers.

As with all Riversol skin care formulas, Riversol MD employs minimal packaging in an effort to be the first fully sustainable skincare line in the world. Riversol MD combines the use of a stabilized amount of Vitamin C and Vitamin E; contains no fragrances, dyes or sulphates and harnesses the benefits of Beta- Thujaplicin (a key ingredient derived from the Western Red Cedar tree). Known for its naturally calming properties, thujaplicin was historically adopted for use by the First Nations people for generations as a natural, healing anti-inflammatory. The molecule boasts of properties including, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antibiotic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and has the ability to naturally whiten the skin.

Riversol MD is available online at www.riversol.com, through cosmetic physicians as well as medspas and high-end retailers. For high resolution images please click here.
