REDONDO BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 17, 2016) - SECFilings.com, a leading financial news and information portal offering free real time public company filing alerts, announces an in-depth examination of Oculus Innovative Sciences' (NASDAQ: OCLS) unique and effective approach to the treatment of eczema.
Many may take skin for granted, but it is one of the most complex and important parts of the body. That is certainly not the case, though, for approximately one-third of Americans who suffer from some type of skin condition. Despite the advancements, especially with biologics for psoriasis, there is still an unmet need for many skin conditions, including atopic dermatitis and eczema, an umbrella term for conditions such as atopic dermatitis (the most common type of eczema), irritant and allergic contact dermatitis, and hand eczema. In all cases, eczema is characterized by red, irritated and inflamed skin. The National Eczema Association (NEA) estimates that 31.6 million people in the U.S. have symptoms of eczema, including about 18 million with moderate to severe eczema.
Without a "cure" for atopic dermatitis, management of each of the symptoms through a deep understanding of how the skin functions is the best answer. In April, Oculus launched its latest product for eczema, called Ceramax® Skin Barrier Cream, which is built on Lipogrid® technology.
Ceramax® utilizes a blend of ingredients, including leveraging the properties of physiological lipids to meet the goals of skin repair through an inside-out and outside-in approach. This is due to the fact the physiological lipids can be absorbed into the stratum corneum, with some reaching the viable epidermis while also protecting the outside of the skin while it heals.
