- Invisicare Patents Continue to be Granted Globally
LAS VEGAS, June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Skinvisible, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SKVI) (Website: http://www.skinvisible.com), the developers of Invisicare, a polymer delivery system that enhances topically applied products, has been granted a comprehensive patent in Australia. The Invisicare patent provides protection in the areas of "Topical Composition, Topical Composition Precursor, and Methods for Manufacturing and Using".
This patent will assist Skinvisible's sales efforts in Australia by protecting its Invisicare technology and formulated products. Invisicare has a unique ability to hold active ingredients on the skin for extended periods of time while resisting wash-off, rub-off and perspiration. This benefit leads to additional unique enhancements to topical dermatology products. Additionally, Invisicare provides product life-cycle management by allowing for new patent protection for products coming off patent and providing improved claims to formulations of cosmetics, over-the-counter and prescription skincare products.
"The demand for our Invisicare technology and out products is international. A key component of our business strategy is to provide patentable products to our clients," said Mr. Terry Howlett, President and CEO of Skinvisible. "Having our Invisicare patent approved in Australia is one more degree of protection that we can provide to our international licensees. We continue to submit for patent protection worldwide for all products formulated with Invisicare."
Australia has followed India as the second international patent approved for Skinvisible. With numerous patents pending both for its technology and formulated products, Skinvisible continues to remain focused on securing licensees for its products internationally.
Skinvisible has patented its technology and trademarked its polymer delivery system Invisicare(R). Invisicare is a combination of hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers that hold active ingredients on the skin for extended periods of time. They are non-occlusive and allow normal skin respiration and perspiration while moisturizing and protecting against exposure from a wide variety of environmental irritants.
