Skinfix Heals Extremely Dry Skin Due to Diabetes With New, Natural Skincare Regimen, Now Available at Rite Aid

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and Proper Skin Care, in Addition to Diet and Exercise, Is a Must for the 29 Million Americans Living With Diabetes

HALIFAX, NS--(Marketwired - November 02, 2015) - Skinfix® Inc., the expert in healthy skin for the whole family, is launching a natural, therapeutic body skincare regimen for people living with diabetes at Rite Aid. Packed with natural ingredients, clinically proven and dermatologist recommended, the Skinfix Diabetic Relief Skincare Regimen includes: Skinfix Moisturizing Body Wash, Skinfix Daily Relief Lotion, Skinfix Hand Relief Cream and Skinfix Healing Foot & Leg Balm.

According to the American Diabetes Association, about one-third of people with diabetes will develop a skin problem. High levels of glucose can cause the body to lose fluids, which can lead to dry, cracked and irritated skin, particularly on the legs, feet and hands. In addition, nerve damage (diabetic neuropathy) can lead to numb, injury prone feet which if not cared for can lead to foot or leg amputation. Frequent glucose monitoring and hand washing can also leave hands and fingertips split and irritated.

"It is time to focus on skin health. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy, as well as poor circulation in the legs and feet, can make it difficult to notice skin damage. If skin irritations are not cared for properly they can lead to infections," says Endocrinologist Dr. Elise Brett, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Keeping skin properly cleaned and moisturized needs to become a daily ritual for people living with diabetes."

The Skinfix Diabetic Relief Skincare Regimen is clinically proven to soothe and protect the skin of people living with diabetes. This collection is packed with powerful natural ingredients like coconut, jojoba and apricot kernel oils. This natural skincare regimen does not include urea, a synthetic moisturizer and exfoliator that can irritate already sensitive skin. Skinfix leaves out other potential skin irritants in its products such as fragrance, soy, gluten, sulfates, parabens and phthalates. The Skinfix Healing Foot & Leg Balm was clinically tested by a podiatrist on people living with diabetes and was proven to be a safe and effective product to moisturize dry, cracked skin on legs and feet by 83%. Skinfix Hand Relief Cream was clinically tested by a dermatologist on people living with diabetes and was proven to immediately increase skin hydration on dry, cracked hands by 74%.

"The skin health needs of someone living with diabetes are very different than someone who suffers from general dry skin," says Amy Gordinier-Regan, President of Skinfix. "As the experts in healing dry and irritated skin, we created a safe, gentle and natural body skincare regimen that will make a difference in the overall skin health of people living with diabetes."

The Skinfix brand was created over 100 years ago by a pharmacist in Yorkshire, England using a formula of natural ingredients that was proven to heal and soothe skin ailments such as eczema, skin rashes and irritation all over the body. The Skinfix Diabetic Relief Skincare Regimen is priced between $15.99-$19.99 and assortment varies by store. Skinfix products can also be purchased at RiteAid.com and Skinfixinc.com.

  • Skinfix Moisturizing Body Wash (12.5 fl. oz./$19.99) This ultra-mild, sulfate free formula uses natural, coconut based cleansers to lightly foam without stripping or irritating. Emollient oils of jojoba and sunflower leave skin feeling soft and supple, while oat and rice bran extracts help relieve flaky and itchy tight skin.
  • Skinfix Daily Relief Lotion (12.5 fl. oz./$19.99) This lightweight, yet deeply moisturizing lotion keeps skin looking and feeling healthy when used daily. It instantly soothes and protects dry, flaky and irritated skin. Coconut, jojoba and apricot kernel oils relieve itch, hydrate and help to repair the skin barrier to keep skin soft, supple and healthy.
  • Skinfix Hand Relief Cream (2oz/$15.99) Constant hand washing and daily testing with glucose meters can leave hands and fingertips battered, split and irritated. Hand Relief Cream is an extra gentle, yet deeply moisturizing hand cream specifically formulated for those with diabetes. In a clinical study, conducted on people living with diabetes, 97% felt their dry cracked hands and fingertips were relieved and protected after using this product. It's also fragrance free and won't interfere with glucose meter readings.
  • Skinfix Healing Foot & Leg Balm (2 oz./$17.99) A concentrated, urea free, healing and moisturizing formula for severely dry feet and legs due to diabetes or poor circulation. This powerful balm soothes and repairs cracks and fissures, while helping to protect feet and legs in order to maintain healthy skin. In a clinical test run on people living with diabetes, 100% felt that after just one application skin felt soothed and protected.
