Cosmederm Bioscience fills out itch-relief line with new offerings

BY Michael Johnsen

SAN DIEGO – Cosmederm Bioscience on Monday expanded its itch-relief product line, TriCalm, with the new TriCalm Clinical Repair Cream and TriCalm Extra Strength Spray. 
 
"Because no itch is exactly the same, itch sufferers can't be easily categorized," said Sean Edwards, CEO and president, Cosmederm Bioscience. "Through our research, we recognized a need to provide a broader selection of products for those who suffer from itch, ranging from an acute bug bite to chronic skin conditions. Our Clinical Repair Cream and Extra Strength Spray offer two new steroid-free solutions that provide effective relief, further advancing our company's mission to solve itch with innovative science."
 
Clinical Repair Cream is ideal for those suffering from dry, itchy skin, while Extra Strength Spray is formulated for use on contagious or hard-to-reach areas, such as rashes from poison oak or ivy. 
 
Like the original offering Hydrogel, the new TriCalm Clinical Repair Cream and TriCalm Extra Strength Spray have been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance, recognizing them as products appropriate for the care of itch related to sensitive skin or eczema, a condition that affects roughly thirty million Americans.
