DALLAS — Personal care company Naterra has announced the national launch of Phase+, a skin care line designed to address the cosmetic effects that diabetes has on the skin.
Phase+, which is now available at all Walgreens stores, is infused with anti-microbial ingredients to help prevent such skin care problems as cracked heels and ultra-dry skin from becoming a larger problem for diabetics, the company stated.
Co-developed with a dermatologist, the Phase+ line includes such ingredients as gingko biloba and grape seed extracts to help skin heal and improve blood circulation.
"Phase+ fills a void in the marketplace to address the highly specific skin care issues faced by diabetics," stated Jin Song, CEO of Naterra. "I'm particularly impressed with the line's targeted approach to ultra-dry skin, dark spots and thickening of the skin. I think Phase+ will be a welcomed addition to the arsenal of products that help diabetics live more comfortable and productive lives."
The Phase+ product line includes the following products:
Foot Therapy (suggested retail price of $14.99) — Proper foot care is an essential part of diabetic skin care. Massaging Phase+ Foot Therapy on feet provides a barrier to help protect skin, promotes blood flow so skin can heal and helps soften calluses.
Exfoliating Wash (SRP $7.99) — Thickening of skin can occur in diabetics. This dual-action wash gently exfoliates to help prevent thickening without the risk of damaging, while the moisturizing formula helps prevent dry skin.
