"We knew with advanced pharmaceutical technology we could make a better and more effective 'over-the-counter' psoriasis treatment that was safe to use every day," said Art Clapp, CEO of Nuvothera.
FORT WORTH, TX, April 12, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Nuvothera, a Fort Worth, Texas-based biotech company, has reached agreement to have its revolutionary Prosoria Psoriasis Treatment System available nationwide in Walgreens.
Prosoria is an effective, over-the-counter treatment with long-lasting results for a tough-to-treat skin condition. Formulated with maximum-strength ingredients, botanicals and vitamins, Prosoria effectively relieves psoriasis symptoms and is safe for daily use. The formula is steroid- free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free.
The once-daily, 2-step treatment system includes a treatment gel developed to optimize the relief of psoriasis symptoms. It is used with an exfoliating moisturizer made to rapidly remove scaling and flaking while intensively moisturizing the skin.
"We knew with advanced pharmaceutical technology that we could make a better and more effective 'over-the-counter' treatment that was safe to use every day," said Art Clapp, CEO of Nuvothera. "We are constantly seeking ways to improve our customer experience and satisfaction. With the proper approach, psoriasis symptoms can be well controlled.
"Getting into retail drugstores is a game changer for Nuvothera. This significant milestone enables us to quickly launch products and reach significantly more people with skin conditions. The drugstore channel is huge, and we have prepared for rapid growth."
There are approximately nine million people in the U.S. with psoriasis and 125 million worldwide. Dry, red, flaky patches of skin characterize the condition, which is an inherited inflammatory condition and is not contagious. Inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis tend to have flares, which are cycles of improvement and worsening. There is no cure for psoriasis, and it is a condition that can be difficult to manage and control. The National Psoriasis Foundation has recognized Prosoria as an effective treatment to help relieve symptoms of psoriasis.
In addition to Walgreens, Prosoria is available at select CVS HealthHUB Stores. It is also available for purchase online at Prosoria.com, CVS.com, Walmart.com and Amazon. Prosoria is eligible for HSA and FSA reimbursement.
Nuvothera uses pharmaceutical technology and advanced plant science to boost the effectiveness of its healthcare products. It focuses on topical solutions for difficult-to-treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, warts, and nail fungus; it also has a turmeric-based pill to effectively relieve inflammation and joint pain.
Nuvothera expects its products to more than double sales during 2023, propelled by the expansion into Walgreens and the launch of a new line of products to treat scalp psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis.
Walgreens and CVS are the two largest pharmacies in the US with a total store count of 18,455. In addition to their pharmacies, Walgreens VillageMD clinics and CVS HealthHUB stores, including Minute Clinics, continue to expand into a community health destination designed to make healthcare more convenient, personalized, and affordable.
Nuvothera was founded by seasoned dermatology pharmaceutical executives to develop novel products for difficult-to-treat skin conditions and chronic inflammatory diseases. For more information, contact [email protected] or call 817-905-2784.
