Skinvisible's strong intellectual property protection is often the key catalyst for a company to license products formulated with Invisicare. Skinvisible's patents provide a guaranteed period of market exclusivity to licensees. Along with developing its own formulations, Skinvisible's research and development team works directly with companies offering life cycle management for their products coming off patent. Additionally, Invisicare offers unique attributes to topical products including the ability to hold active ingredients on the skin for extended periods of time and providing a controlled, fast or slow release of the active ingredient.

"Skinvisible continues to invest into patent protection for Invisicare and its unique characteristics," said Mr. Terry Howlett, President and CEO of Skinvisible. "The strength of our patents is paramount in the success of our product licensing strategy as pharmaceutical companies worldwide battle strong competition for their own products coming off patent. Along with a new patent, Invisicare provides an exciting new marketing story for companies to utilize."

In addition to this new patent approval for Japan, Skinvisible holds patent protection in the United States, Australia and India and has numerous US and international product patents pending.
