MEDERMA(R) CREAM PLUS SPF 30: First Scar Product to Receive AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION(R)

GREENSBORO, N.C., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has honored Merz Pharmaceuticals with its first-ever recognition of a scar product for its sun-protection benefit. The AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION(R) recognizes over-the-counter products for their sun-protection benefit based on review of independent testing results by an independent scientist and a panel of dermatologists to verify that the products meet stringent, evidence-based sun-protection criteria. Mederma(R) Cream plus SPF 30 is the first scar product to receive this distinction.(1)

According to the AAD, sun exposure is the most preventable risk factor for all skin cancers, including melanoma, and is primarily responsible for premature aging.

"Public health education is the first line of defense against skin cancer," said dermatologist David M. Pariser, M.D., president of the AAD. "The AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION(R), awarded only to those products that meet stringent, evidence-based scientific criteria for sun protection, helps raise public awareness of the dangers of unprotected sun exposure. Scars are particularly sensitive to the sun's harmful ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays which can worsen the appearance of the scar. To help minimize the appearance of scars, it is imperative to protect the skin and apply sunscreen. The AAD recognizes that proper and regular use of broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) protection sunscreens with Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 15 or higher, along with wearing sun-protective clothing and seeking shade, will help protect against sunburn and may reduce long-term damage to the skin caused by sun exposure."

"Mederma(R) Cream plus SPF 30 is the only scar product with SPF 30 that can help reduce the appearance of scars and protect them from sun exposure," said Mikael Svensson, Merz' Vice
