Exederm was awarded the coveted National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance for its sensitive skin care products as the formulations do not contain any known irritants or allergens.
(PRWEB) October 2, 2008 — The Exederm Ultra Sensitive Skin Care range has been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance™ in acknowledgement of its suitability for management of http://www.exederm.com/ [eczema] and sensitive skin.
The Seal of Acceptance is a new initiative of the http://www.easeeczema.org/ [National Eczema Association]. Eligible products are those that have been created for people with severe sensitive skin conditions and that also avoid a list of ingredients and contents that are known irritants. Many consumers already have some awareness of the importance of avoiding certain ingredients, contents and formulations. The Seal of Acceptance helps empower consumers to make informed purchase decisions to help manage sensitive-skin and to learn more about http://www.exederm.com/aboutskin.html [skin care].
Vicki Kalabokes, Chief Executive Officer of the NEA said "We are pleased to award The Seal of Acceptance to the Exederm products. As the products do not contain any known irritants or allergens, we hope they will be of tremendous benefit to eczema and sensitive skin patients to use with or without prescription medication."

The products that have been awarded the Seal of Acceptance are:

"Our philosophy is simple, if an ingredient is not absolutely necessary then exclude it. If it’s essential, then find the lowest irritancy ingredient possible – it’s just common sense for eczema and http://www.exederm.com/ [sensitive skin] sufferers" said John Gardiner, President of Bentlin Products LLC, manufacturers of Exederm Products.

http://www.exederm.com/aboutskin.html [Eczema] is a general term for any type of dermatitis or "inflammation of the skin." Atopic dermatitis is the most severe and long-lasting kind. Although the term is often used for atopic dermatitis, there are several other skin diseases that qualify as well.
All types will cause itching and redness, and some will blister, weep, or peel.
Ecezma can tend to flare-up when the person is exposed to certain trigger factors–substances or conditions which worsen the dermatitis, such as dry skin, irritants, allergens, emotional stress, heat and sweating, and infections. The key to controlling the skin condition is avoiding or reducing such exposure including irritants often found in skincare and cosmetic products.
About The National Eczema Association:
The National Eczema Association (NEA) was formed in 1988 to improve the health and quality of life for individuals with eczema through research, support and education. The NEA is a national, patient-oriented organization which is governed by a Board of Directors and guided by a Scientific Advisory Committee comprised of physicians and scientists who donate their time and expertise. NEA is entirely supported through individual and corporate contributions and is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
In furtherance of this mission, NEA has established the Eczema & Sensitive-Skin Education (EASE) Program and the NEA Seal of AcceptanceTM. Acceptance of a specific product does not represent an endorsement of that product. Acceptance of a product means that the product has been evaluated to determine that it does not contain ingredients or contents that are known to be unsuitable for use by persons with sensitive skin conditions.
