CYRx MD Announces New Hair Care Product Line

Mayo Clinic trained surgeon, Dr. Steven J. Cyr, of Houston, Texas, has just announced the unveiling of his hair regrowth system as part of his CYRx MD Skincare line. These products include a Hair Regrowth serum with a propriety mix of ingredients that extend the hair growth cycle, an eyelash/eyebrow serum, and a shampoo and conditioner that improve follicle thickness and health. This system can be used in the never ending battle against hair loss and thinning hair that faces men and women alike.

Dr. Cyr started research on his skincare line two years ago in an effort to alleviate the concerns many of his post-operative patients had regarding scarring after surgery. From there the company evolved into a full-service skincare line designed to address the most common and stubborn conditions affecting the skin: Melasma/Sun Damage, Aging, Acne, and Scarring. It began in an effort to treat his wife suffering from sun damage/melasma and his children suffering from teenage acne.

Dr. Steven J. Cyr and CYRx MD Skincare are proud to announce the unveiling of the hair regrowth system as part of the CYRx MD Skincare line.

The products are medical-grade, cruelty free, dermatology tested and free of many of the commonly known irritants such as parabens and sulfate.

“I created this skincare line for my family and patients so efficacy and safety were my primary focus. Not only are they scientifically-formulated and medical-grade but they are also free of common irritants, chemicals, and allergens so nearly everyone can enjoy the benefits of quality skincare products.” ~Dr Steven J. Cyr

The addition of his hair regrowth system includes:

Hair Stimulating Shampoo – Creates a clean and healthy environment for hair regrowth and restoration. Adds fullness to thin, lifeless hair by expanding the shaft of individual hair follicles, leaving the hair with healthy body, volume and shine. Gentle enough for daily use.

Hair Stimulating Conditioner – Nourishing, Panthenol-rich formulation reinforces follicle roots to prevent breakage, building fullness and body to thinning hair.

Hair Regrowth Serum – Contains brandMD®’s HRS-10, a biomimetic peptide combined with red clover extract rich in Biochanin A. This advanced formula supports the scalp’s natural microcirculation to create healthy conditions for new hair growth.

Rapid Grow Eyelash Serum – Clinically proven system utilizing a unique peptide complex, rich in Biochanin A, promotes thicker, fuller and more luscious lashes with results visible in just 2 weeks of regular use.

The roll out of his hair regrowth system is slated for January 2020.

Cover model for the products is Alayah Benavides, former Miss Texas and currently starring in ABC’s The Bachelor. LeAnn Cyr, CEO of CYRx MD Skincare, states that she chose Alayah because of “her long-standing reputation in the community and the charitable work that she has done to help educate our youth on the importance of literacy, in addition to her work to help fund literacy initiatives.”

Number of Americans Searching for Dry Skin Solutions Peaks During January

With winter’s toughest weather on its way, Americans are turning to the web for answers about resolving their dry skin as the temperature drops. According to Google Trends, January is the month when searches for “dry skin” peak. From weather conditions like harsh winds to common behaviors like increasing the temperature on the thermostat, winter often causes a rise in flare-ups of skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis and just flat-out dry, itchy skin. In fact, 82 percent of Americans feel that the winter months are when their skin is at its worst, according to survey results from CeraVe®, conducted online by Harris Poll among more than 2,000 U.S. adults. That’s why CeraVe®, the therapeutic skincare authority, is helping people find the solution to their dry skin and flare-ups on January 8th, Winter Skin Relief Day.

Dry heat from thermostats, steamy showers and frigid temperatures outside are contributing factors to the loss of hydration and damage to the skin barrier. Ceramides are a crucial component of the skin barrier and help seal in moisture and seal out impurities. Ceramide deficiency occurs naturally in skin over time, but can be exacerbated during the winter, triggering uncomfortable skin conditions associated with the season. People prone to skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and even acne are especially impacted, as the changing weather can lead to flare-ups, making ceramides even more vital to a proper skincare routine.

“Skin becomes drier and more sensitive during the winter, so it’s essential to adapt a regular skincare regimen to include rich, moisturizing products,” said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Melissa K. Levin. “Using hydrating creams like CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream daily can help replenish ceramides in the skin barrier, lock in moisture and protect from winter irritants.”

Obtaining healthy skin in the winter is possible by giving skin the extra care and hydration it needs. However, the CeraVe® survey found that 30 percent of Americans do not add any additional products to their skincare routines in the winter and 25 percent say they do not even have a skincare routine. Luckily, CeraVe® is here this Winter Skin Relief Day to help combat the effects of winter and give skin the TLC it needs.

“We know people are searching for dry skin solutions during the winter months, so we want to make sure they have the knowledge to make the best decisions for their skin,” Derrick Booker, vice president of marketing at CeraVe® said. “CeraVe® remains committed to helping consumers find the therapeutic skin solutions they need to feel their best and obtain their healthiest skin year-round, especially in the winter.”

In honor of Winter Skin Relief Day, CeraVe® is here to ensure consumers learn how to adapt their skincare routines to include products that help replenish ceramides and keep flare-ups of skin concerns to a minimum. CeraVe® offers a wide portfolio of therapeutic products to fit unique skincare needs, including CeraVe® Healing Ointment for dry, cracked skin and CeraVe® Itch Relief Moisturizing Lotion for dry, itchy skin. Both help lock in hydration and relieve irritated skin due to the drying conditions of winter weather and activities. All CeraVe® products are developed with dermatologists and contain an exclusive combination of ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II, which are essential to restoring and maintaining the skin’s barrier.

Nama Fiji Launches in the United States

Nama Fiji Skincare Range

Nama Fiji is excited to finally announce the launch of their skincare range in the U.S. at Nama Fiji skincare products have been sold in Luxury Five Star Hotels and Spas throughout Fiji for over 15 years. Due to demand, the Nama Fiji brand is going global. After a rebrand and much anticipation, the Nama Fiji formulas are focused on enabling longer lasting hydration due to its hero ingredient, nama (“sea grapes,” Caulerpa racemosa) in extract form. Nama, a special species of seaweed, is sourced and sustainably harvested in the blue, pristine lagoon waters of the Yasawa Islands in Fiji.

Nama Fiji‘s history goes back to the early 1990s when Debra Sadranu moved to Fiji to establish a Spa School and Senikai Spas, now a chain of spas in Luxury Hotels and Resorts. Spa Academy Fiji, now a CIDESCO International accredited school, sponsors, trains, and provides students with workplace training. Many are single mothers, often from remote and rural areas. The Nama Fiji brand is founded on the passion to support women in Fiji gain access to training and employment to improve their quality of life.

The Nama Fiji product range was designed to provide lasting hydration and nutrition to all layers of the skin to promote a radiant, healthy complexion. Through a partnership with James Cook University in Australia, it was verified that nama, a long-time local Fijian delicacy, has incredibly beneficial properties for the skin due to its high concentration of minerals and vitamins when compared to other types of seaweed.

Being mission driven, Nama Fiji built the world’s first sustainable nama harvesting program with support from the Australian Government. The sustainable nama harvesting program was designed to create opportunity for the women of the Yasawa Islands. It generates a new income source to compliment that of the traditional village system and safeguard an important natural resource in a pristine environment.

Women harvesters spend up to 8 hours in the water, 3 days a week, hand picking the wild nama “sea grapes”. Nama regenerates rapidly (within 3 weeks) and harvesting the nama does not negatively impact the ecosystem. The purchasing of Nama Fiji products helps to change their lives and the lives of those around them.

Nama’s high concentration of minerals and vitamins provides a powerful solution that hydrates and firms the skin, combats dullness and aging, diffuses redness and soothes the skin. The formulas are targeted towards those who deal with dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin, whether that’s from eczema, rosacea, or generally mature skin. However, there’s something in the range for everyone.

Nama being a seaweed, is rich with minerals (trace elements). These trace elements can be used to maintain the ionic potential of our cells, by acting on the concentration gradient via osmosis, a natural biological process. Nama’s higher concentration of mineral salts when compared to other types of seaweed, are able to permeate the cell membrane, keeping our cells hydrated (intracellular, or within-cell, hydration). Nama’s beneficial minerals also increase our cells metabolism to counteract cellular aging.

Nama Fiji is looking forward to the journey ahead as they embark on exciting partnerships and expansive international plans. Distribution to the UK is on track for early December, with Australia and New Zealand targeted for right around the New Year.
