Getting the Red Out
The chronic and potentially life-disruptive nature of rosacea makes it almost as frustrating as the fact that there is no known cause or cure for the skin disorder. And while there are varied treatment therapies to reduce the signs and symptoms for sufferers, there is no singular one-size-fits-all modality.
However, the latest research has found that one possible cause of rosacea is the bacteria living within microbes that thrive on the skin. Micronized silver has shown to be antimicrobial, thereby effectively reducing bacteria levels.
Repêchage is the first U.S. skincare company to incorporate this ingredient in a facial regimen and in at-home products as part of an effective treatment protocol to address rosacea and hypersensitivity. According to Lydia Sarfati, Repêchage CEO and founder, who herself experienced a bout of rosacea, “Realizing I was not the only one that was affected by this issue—16 million Americans experience skin flare-ups and rosacea—I knew I had to take this matter into my own hands and create a real solution. This led to the development of Red-Out facial treatments and products, which aim to provide immediate relief for such conditions.” —Maureen Sheen, Senior Editor
