From October 29 to November 1st, 2016, the Skintifique team was at the 2016 GERDA which took place in Nancy. It was a great opportunity for us to meet and discuss with Dermatologists, Doctors and Allergists present at this congress.
Skintifique at the GERDA
For its third participation at the GERDA (the main master class for French speaking Dermatologists and Allergists), Skintifique chose to present two skincare products from its range of products specially designed to fight against metal irritants: the Protective Cream HPS and the Cleanser P. The Protective Cream HPS benefits from an innovative and patented technology, the world’s first capable of protecting the skin against metals such as Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt, to which around 10% of the world’s population is allergic. With this exclusive technology, called Capturifique, the common irritant and allergens are captured at the surface of the skin and are prevented from entering, or re-entering it.To learn more about the Capturifique technology, click here.
These ions can later be washed away by cleaning your hands or using the Cleanser P. This purifying micellar water is exceptionally gentle for the most sensitive skin. Moreover, the Cleanser P is particularly tough on pollution and traces of metals such as Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt.
At this congress, we heard feedbacks from Doctors who already tested Skinfitique products. The feedbacks were very positive. Many of them did not know which product to recommend to all their patients who suffer from dermatitis caused by contact with objects containing metals, be it in daily life (such as costume jewelry, coins, watches, computers, tablets, mobile phone, belts and leather accessories) or professional life objects for hairdressers, health professionals, cashiers or construction workers. They consider Skintifique products as a real opportunity for those who are allergic to metal to regain a normal life.
For instance, we had the feedback from a doctor who recommended to one of his patients to use the Protective Cream HPS to relive her Chromium allergy. This patient is a professional ballerina and because of her Chromium allergy, she couldn’t wear her ballet pointe shoes without feeling irritations and itching on her foots. Thanks to the Protective Cream HPS which captures common metals on the surface of the epidermis and therefore limits their penetration into the skin and the harmful effect, this ballerina can dance and work again !
This third participation at the GERDA was a success and we will certainly participate again next year.
