Enhance Skin Products Inc. Announces Issue of Patent in Japan for its Bioactive Glass and Hyaluronic Acid cosmetic compositions
August 19, 2015. Enhance Skin Products Inc., (OTCBB: EHSK) is pleased to make the following announcement:
Patent Grant in Japan
Enhance Skin Products Inc., a pioneer in hyaluronan (“HA”) research and development for deep hydration of the skin, announces the issue by the Japanese Patent and Trademark Office of a patent for the use of HA and bioactive glass to facilitate the deposition and penetration of bioactive microparticulates through skin at a site to be treated. This patent forms the basis for the Visible Youth Professional and Consumer skin care ranges of cosmeceuticals.
Visible Youth™ Steeped in evidence-based science, Visible Youth Professional and Consumer skin care products contain the optimal size, purest and most effective HA molecular fraction available for deep penetrating hydration. The unique line of proprietary formulations helps restore the skin’s natural supply of HA-water complex, resulting in long-lasting benefits for all skin types. www.visibleyouth.com
The Visible Youth skin care collection currently includes our Revitalizing Skin Formula, Revitalizing Eye Zone Gel, Revitalizing Moisturizer and Revitalizing Cleanser products. As part of a daily regimen of healthy skin care each of these products interacts synergistically with the others in the collection to help correct, repair, restore and maintain the continued youthful appearance and function of the skin.
Visible Youth Professional products focus on the treatment of skin after non-surgical procedures, an area the Company believes has been neglected by the market and for which it sees great potential. Central to the premium Visible Youth Professional brand are the proprietary patented, Healing Complex Plus 3% Lidocaine and Healing Complex. The Company recently filed US and International patent applications for the use of HA and bioactive glass to enhance and extend the anti-wrinkle effects of cosmetic treatments associated with aesthetic injectables such as Botox (botulinum toxin) and cosmetic dermal fillers.
The Company is in the process of refining its formulations and plans to refresh its packaging to re-launch the Visible Youth brand in the Consumer and Professional markets. Bioactive Vitryxx®* will be combined with HA in all the Visible Youth products. The Visible Youth Revitalizing Skin Formula, Visible Youth Revitalizing Moisturizer, Visible Youth Eye Zone Gel, and Visible Youth Revitalizing Cleanser are planned to be specifically formulated for the Consumer market. The Visible Youth Healing Complex and Visible Youth Healing Complex plus 3% Lidocaine, plus reformulated versions of the Skin Formula, Eye Zone Gel and Moisturizer are expected to be marketed under the Visible Youth Professional brand.
Donald Nicholson Enhance’s President & CEO stated that “ this new patent grant in Japan represents an exciting new addition to our patent portfolio. This grant follows recent grants for our base patent in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and China and the filing of our new patent applications to enhance and extend the anti-wrinkle effects of Botox® and cosmetic dermal fillers cosmetic treatments. Applications are progressing in the European Union and Canada.” He further went on to state that ‘to accomplish its plans the Company is currently exploring various options for raising additional fund and is in discussions with various potential marketing partners.” Certain statements contained in this document include “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
