Joel Schlessinger MD and the FixMySkin Healing Balms featured again in the New York Times

Joel Schlessinger MD and the FixMySkin Healing Balms featured again in the New York Times
The FixMySkin Healing Balms with 1% Hydrocortisone, invented by Joel Schlessinger MD and his son, Daniel, were featured last week in the New York Times. The article, “Even Beauty Items Face the Aging Process,” features Joel Schlessinger MD’s commentary on the expiration date of beauty products.

Joel Schlessinger is quoted as saying, “As companies create more complex products to simplify consumers’ regimens, they end up with a plethora of problems.”

The article goes on to discuss how many ingredients do not play well together and this can cause degradation of the product. It also discusses how many cosmetic companies do not want to delay the launch of their products, so they release them to the public when they may not be stabilized for a long-term shelf life.

The FixMySkin Healing Balms with 1% Hydrocortisone went through strenuous stability testing to ensure they have a long shelf-life without becoming ineffective. This long-term stability testing halted the launch of the products, but in the end, they are much safer and effective than other products that are released too quickly to the public.

This article is featured both in the print version of the New York Times as well as online. Read more of Joel Schlessinger MD’s expert commentary here.

Joel Schlessinger’s son, Daniel, featured as one of the top four entrepreneurs under 20

Joel Schlessinger MD’s son, Daniel, featured as one of the top four entrepreneurs under 20
Daniel Schlessinger, son of Joel Schlessinger, was recently featured in an article on OpenForum.com entitled “Young and Restless: 4 Entrepreneurs Under Age 20.” In this article, Daniel is featured for the invention of the FixMySkin Healing Balms.

In 2007, 12-year-old Daniel Schlessinger tried to soothe his cracked hands and fingers with lip balm. When it didn’t work to soothe them like he had hoped, he began researching the right product to properly heal dry, cracked skin.

Two years later, with the help of Joel Schlessinger and Daniel’s grandfather, Bernie, Daniel was able to approach chemists about a possible balm treatment that would contain hydrocortisone yet would remain solid at high temperatures.

Today, the product is called the FixMySkin Healing Balms and they are appearing in physician’s offices across the United States. The balms come in both an unflavored and a vanilla variety and they are also available for lips, face and body. Purchase your FixMySkin Healing Balms here.

With the help of Joel Schlessinger, Daniel has turned his idea into a profitable and effective solution to skin dryness.
