ORLANDO, Fla., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Equity Inc. (OTC: UNQT) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Natural Product Laboratories LLC, has developed Allevium, a creme that contains natural ingredients and plant extracts, which aids in soothing the effects of chemotherapy treatment. The Allevium compound targets damaged and irritated skin and promotes soothing repair for affected areas.*
Each year, 10.9 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer and this incidence is rising. This increase reflects the world's growing population and the fact that people are living longer, according to the New Zealand Dermatological Society (dermnetnz.org). Chemotherapy and radiation treatment are in many cases crucial components to cancer management, a treatment that itself does not come without side effects, as doctors and patients alike will see an increasing incidence of, among other unwanted effects, cancer treatment related skin toxicity. Chemotherapy and radiation may cause skin irritations, such as redness, peeling, itching and dryness. The skin may look as if it is sunburned or tanned, and acne issues may present themselves.
Union Equity's subsidiary Natural Product Laboratories announces today that it is beginning its initial product distribution of three different versions of its Allevium product: Allevium Intense Repair Creme, Allevium Daily Moisture Creme and Allevium Solor Protection SPF 30. The Allevium line's target market is anyone who is looking to soothe the burns, breakouts and skin irritation suffered from chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
