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.
