Developed in consultation with dermatologists involving four years of research, the new clinically tested Ceramedx products contain Riceramide-3 natural ceramide technology that is claimed to help heal dry and sensitive skin.

“These fragrance-free products are said to improve moisture retention, without containing parabens or petrolatum.”

ESN Group president Kenneth Grand said: “We are thrilled to deliver this nature-derived ceramide therapy, perfected over years of research and development (R&D).

“With only the highest quality natural ingredients, we have created our first set of products in a skincare system that provides results to severely dry skin without a prescription.”

The therapeutic product is supported by Dr Corey Frucht, a board-certified medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatologist. He is a practitioner at Santa Barbara Skin Care.

Frucht said: “One of the things I love about the Ceramedx products is that they’re hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. This represents a more natural alternative for patients of mine with dry skin who need a therapeutic product.”

Included with a cleanser, a body lotion and a moisturising cream, Ceramedx is sold at ceramedx.com.

Established in 1981, ESN Group’s brands also include Earth Science beauty and personal care products, while Sarabecca natural perfumes and lotions.
