STRONTIUM CALMING LOTION (2 oz)
Specially formulated to relieve facial burning, stinging, itching or redness due to environmental or chemical irritants. The first rosacea skincare product to present the effectiveness of strontium technology, this Calming Lotion is an elegant fragrance-free moisturizer in a 2-oz treatment pump.
This unique Calming Lotion contains COSMEDERM-7™, a strontium compound developed by Dr. Gary Hahn, one of America’s foremost skin care researchers and a clinical professor at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Hahn is consulting on all phases of the formulation of our rosacea-friendly strontium nitrate and strontium chloride hexahydrate products.
COSMEDERM-7™ is the first compound that selectively blocks the irritation-producing nerve endings (type C nociceptors) that become activated when itching, burning and stinging occur from any cause. It is highly selective in its activity and is extremely safe. (Strontium, in fact, is a natural element found in many of the foods we eat, especially green, leafy vegetables. It is the eighth most abundant element in seawater.)
Dr. Hahn's clinical studies have demonstrated that the application of strontium to the facial skin can relieve burning, stinging, itching or redness due to environmental or chemical irritation.
This inhibitory action for many users will take place within seconds and with long-lasting effect. For more severe rosacea patients, the effectiveness will build over a longer period but with equally significant results.
A special note for the men: apply Calming Lotion or Soothing Spray just before or just after shaving to ease or eliminate irritation.
