Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 22, 2006
BariPeutic Health™, Inc. (http://www.baripeutichealth.com), a company focused on providing dignity for the obese through innovative products designed to improve their quality of life, announced today the introduction of its line of Dignité™ skin care products that address the unique skin conditions of the obese and morbidly obese. Recognizing that skin conditions associated with the obese and bariatric patient are often overlooked and require special preventative care in order to maintain healthy skin, the company has unveiled the three-step Dignité skin care line formulated to cleanse, moisturize, and protect this delicate organ. Dignité’s three steps to healthier skin include:
- Proper hygiene, which is often a problem for the obese. BariPeutic Health’s new Dignité™ Cleanse is a pH-balanced foaming cleanser that gently cleans hair and skin without requiring rinsing, and is specifically designed to clean skin folds.
- Nourishment of the skin, including moisturizing and conditioning, which can be an essential element in the prevention of serious skin ailments that can occur, like xerosis. Dignité™ Moisturize is formulated to smooth, nourish and soften the skin, especially the hands, feet, and legs where moisturization is crucial.
- The prevention and treatment of chafing and other serious skin irritations, like intertrigo, which can occur in delicate skin areas like under the breasts and inner thighs. Dignité™ Protect is a skin protectant that provides relief from chafing and skin irritation which can occur from skin-on-skin friction.
“Prevention is critical to avoiding serious skin complications in the obese, such as fungal and bacterial infections, intertrigo, and pressure ulcers,” said Dr. Robert S. Kirsner at the University of Miami’s Department of Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery. “These three Dignité products can be viewed as part of the basis for prevention.”
BariPeutic Health’s skin care products also address the needs of the bariatric patient, those that have undergone bariatric weight-reduction surgery like gastric bypass. As the patient loses weight, the excess skin folds leave skin vulnerable to infection.
“Our Dignité products were specifically created to improve the quality of life for people of size,” said Dennis Hogue, CEO of BariPeutic Health, Inc. “With obesity on the rise, skin care products addressing the needs of this significant population have not been readily available to consumers of this specific market. Our products are designed to make a noticeable difference, both with the prevention and treatment of these unique skin conditions.”
The company’s Dignité products can be purchased online at http://www.baripeutichealth.com, on affiliate websites, or by calling 770-649-8637. Other Dignité products are also being developed and will be introduced later this year.
