Biofrontera AG: Biofrontera adds body cream to belixos® dermo-cosmetics series

Leverkusen (pta025/08.02.2017/15:35) - Biofrontera AG expands its successful dermocosmetics series belixos®. Since February 1, a body cream with active plant extracts is available in a 150 ml tube. The special skin care is the sixth product of the belixos® line.

With its pleasant formulation, the cream is most suitable as intensive care for irritated and itchy skin. It contains the same active ingredients with anti-inflammatory Mahonia aquifolium as the popular belixos® cream. The body cream is aimed at users suffering from neurodermatitis, psoriasis, extremely dry skin or eczema, and who need a special daily basic care. It is offered through Amazon internationally and in German pharmacies at a price of 19.95 Euro.

In addition, two existing products of the belixos® series were optically revised and made more user-friendly in their dosage form. Both belixos® cream, which relieves irritation and inflammation of dry skin, as well as belixos® gel, which is the ideal care for redness and impurities, are now available in a hygienic pump dispenser. This renders the application of the products more comfortable and optimally protects the formulation.
