The National Rosacea Society has launched its Seal of Acceptance, which shows consumers what skin care products and cosmetics are suitable for people who suffer from rosacea.
Dermal Repair Cream by Senté was the first product to receive the seal.
In the Seal of Acceptance section of rosacea.org, rosacea patients and consumers may find a list of accepted products, including a photo and description of each product and a link to learn more and purchase.
The list is searchable and sortable by product category and brand, and new Seal recipients will be added on an ongoing basis.
To be considered for the Seal, skin care and cosmetic products must be free of ingredients that cause skin barrier dysfunction, vasomotor instability (flushing) or unwanted neurosensory stimulation, such as burning or itching.
These products so far have received the NRS Seal of Acceptance:
- Bee Rx Rosacea Rescue
- Laura Geller Baked Balance-n-Brighten Color Correcting Foundation
- Laura Geller Baked Balance-n-Glow Illuminating Foundation
- Laura Geller Double Take Baked Full Coverage Foundation
- Prequel Gleanser Non-Drying Glycerin Cleanser
- Prequel Sun Barrier Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++
- Prequel Universal Skin Solution Dermal Spray
- Senté Dermal Repair Cream
- Serica Rosacea Formula
- Skinfix barrier+ Foaming Oil Cleanser
Andrew Huff, president and executive director of the NRS, said, "One of the most common requests the NRS receives from rosacea patients is for information and advice about which skin care and cosmetic products are appropriate to use. We are pleased to offer this resource to rosacea sufferers by recognizing products that have been shown to be unlikely to cause irritation or a flare-up.”
Zubin Meshginpoosh, president and COO of Senté, said, "Senté is honored to partner with the National Rosacea Society on this program to improve the lives of patients by making rosacea-friendly products easier to identify and source. We are committed to helping those with rosacea, and hope the seal program serves as a guide to those looking for products like ours that won’t exacerbate their condition.”
