Skinvisible Offers 8 Hour Photostablity for Parsol 1789
Date:7/29/2008

UVA Sunscreen with Invisicare Available For International Licensing

LAS VEGAS, July 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Skinvisible, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SKVI)(http://www.skinvisible.com, http://www.invisicare.com), the developers of Invisicare, a patented polymer delivery system that enhances topical skincare products, announces the successful development of a new broad spectrum sunscreen combining the active ingredient avobenzone (Parsol(R) 1789) with Invisicare. Avobenzone is one of only two UVA (320-400 nm) sunscreens approved in the USA. It is on the FDA's Category I sunscreen list, as it offers broad-range UVA protection and helps protect the skin against the harmful effects of sun which can cause skin cancers and premature skin aging.

"The results of the studies for our SPF 30 and 50 sunscreens are very impressive," said James Roszell, PhD for Skinvisible Pharmaceuticals. "Avobenzone is notoriously unstable when exposed to light with most products only offering two to four hours of protection. Skinvisible's sunscreens with Invisicare achieved eight hours of photostability with minimal degradation. Additionally, Invisicare has the ability to hold ingredients like avobenzone on the skin for extended periods of time, while resisting wash-off and perspiration; rating our sunscreen formulas as "very water-resistant".

"The completions of our studies are timely as the FDA reviews new labeling standards," said Mr. Terry Howlett, President and CEO of Skinvisible. "The FDA proposed changes to sunscreen labeling so that consumers can easily identify which sunscreen products offer UVA and UVB protection and at what level. This four-star ranking of UVA protection levels ranges from "low," "medium," "high" to "highest". We foresee that Skinvisible's new broad spectrum sunscreen would achieve the "highest" rating."

In addition to sunscreens, Skinvisible has a portfolio of 25 topical dermatology products formulated with Invisicare available for world-wide licensing. In addition to developing proprietary products for clients, Skinvisible's formulations include prescription, over-the-counter and cosmetic products for the treatment of acne, atopic dermatitis, fungal infections, as well as anti-inflammatories, analgesics, hand sanitizers, anti-aging, and sunless tanning products.
