Moberg Pharma’s Kerasal NeuroCream launches at U.S. drug stores, Walmart

BY Jason Owen

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Moberg Pharma AB today announced its U.S. launch of Kerasal NeuroCream, an over-the-counter pain relieving foot cream. This new product will be sold in over 3,800 Walmart stores and in CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid drug stores starting late August.

Approximately 30 million Americans experience frequent foot pain and many simultaneously suffer from cold feet and dry skin. Painful, cold, dry feet may be associated with various conditions, including diabetes, fibromyalgia, shingles, arthritis, joint pain, muscle strain, or trauma. Kerasal NeuroCream is a triple action formula that relieves stabbing, burning, tingling foot pain, warms cold feet, and soothes and moisturizes dry skin. Kerasal NeuroCream is easily applied with a “no mess” foam applicator.

The active ingredients of Kerasal NeuroCream, capsaicin and camphor, have a well-established use as topical pain relievers, are naturally occurring and derived from plants. Moberg Pharma has utilized its Fusome skin delivery system, currently used in Moberg’s JointFlex Pain Relieving Cream, to formulate Kerasal NeuroCream, enabling a rapid delivery of effective pain relievers to the pain source.

“Kerasal NeuroCream is an innovative addition to our product portfolio. It leverages one of our existing drug delivery technologies along with proven active ingredients, to provide a solution that meets an unmet consumer need. Kerasal NeuroCream further strengthens the Kerasal brand, our leadership in the topical OTC foot care space in the U.S. and our value to retail partners”, said Peter Wolpert, CEO of Moberg Pharma AB.

BY Jason Owen

PRINCETON, N.J. — Derma Sciences, Inc., a medical device and pharmaceutical company focused on advanced wound care, today reported that it has made an initial shipment of its first honey-based over-the-counter product to a leading U.S.-based pharmacy chain. This private-label dressing is based on the Medihoney HCS dressing, which is an ideal dressing for dry to lightly exuding wounds including minor burns, cuts and abrasions. The dressing is expected to be on the shelves in more than 4,000 stores by the end of September. This OTC dressing is expected to add approximately $1.2 million to Derma Sciences’ traditional wound care sales in the second half of 2013.

“The development of an OTC honey-based dressing is an important achievement for Derma Sciences and is indicative of our ability to modify our advanced wound care products to the consumer market,” said Edward J. Quilty, Derma Sciences chairman and chief executive officer. “We are thrilled that this large pharmacy chain has recognized the quality of our products and are excited to offer this innovative dressing, our first honey-based OTC dressing, to the broader market.”

As part of the private-label supply agreement, Derma Sciences will be working with the pharmacy chain to encourage adoption and utilization. The company will launch a similar dressing into the professional market during the fourth quarter in order to create initial awareness and demand within the hospital setting, and then educate patients and caregivers to the product’s availability within the retail pharmacy setting.

Method introduces foaming dish soap available in new spray design

BY Jason Owen

SAN FRANCISCO — Method Products, PBC, a manufacturer of eco-friendly home cleaning, laundry and personal care products, is innovating in the dish category again, this time with the launch of Power Foam dish soap — a foaming dish soap in an ergonomic trigger spray bottle.

By combining functional design, delightful fragrance and powerful formula, Method has created a dish soap ideal for quick, convenient cleaning that fits with today’s busy lifestyles. Power Foam’s innovative design allows for targeted cleaning, with the ability to spray instantly foaming soap on a sponge or directly onto a dish. The trigger spray makes it easy to clean everything from narrow openings like baby bottles to wide surface areas like baking pans. The foaming formula and targeted application help the naturally derived cleaners get to work quickly on tough grease and stuck-on food.

“People are doing their dishes differently these days,” said Josh Handy, Method’s VP of product experience. “Most dish soaps available today are designed for filling up a sink with bubbles rather than for washing in a targeted manner, which is what we’re seeing more people do. Seeing this shift in how people wash their dishes, we decided to create a product that improves the experience of an everyday chore and makes washing the dishes a bit more enjoyable.”

The easy-to-spray design and fun foaming soap make Method’s Power Foam dish soap an ideal solution for getting kids involved in the dishwashing routine. Parents can feel good about letting them pitch in because of the non-toxic formula free of dirty ingredients.

Power Foam is available in three scents: French Lavender, Pink Grapefruit and Lemon Mint and retails for $3. The recyclable bottles are made with 100% recycled plastic.
