- New Partnership Introduces Invisicare to China

LAS VEGAS and PLAINSBORO, N.J., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Skinvisible, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SKVI), the developers of Invisicare, a patented polymer delivery system that provides life cycle management for topical products, and RHEI Pharmaceuticals NV, a Belgium based pharmaceutical company that in-licenses drugs for sale in China, today announced they have signed a first option agreement. This agreement gives RHEI the first option to license the exclusive rights for Skinvisible's dermatology products for the territory of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Specifically the agreement is for over-the-counter and prescription dermatology products formulated with Invisicare that have been approved in a reference country. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. As part of the agreement, RHEI will augment its existing product lines by seeking approval and then marketing and manufacturing Skinvisible's Invisicare dermatology products in the approved territory.

The Chinese pharmaceutical market represents a huge opportunity with an estimated $22.6 billion spent on pharmaceutical drugs in 2007 and growing at an annual rate of nearly 20%. To address this huge growth, the Chinese government has implemented a more effective approval process, one that fits advantageously into the strategic plans of both Skinvisible and RHEI.

"Skinvisible looks forward to this collaboration with RHEI as we continue to implement our strategy to pursue an accelerated expansion worldwide of licensees for our dermatology formulations enhanced with Invisicare," said Mr. Terry Howlett, President and CEO of Skinvisible. "We are confident that RHEI can leverage its regulatory expertise, marketing capabilities and distribution channels to successfully commercialize Skinvisible products in the Chinese market. Additionally, we continue to focus on expanding our revenue base by negotiating other international partnerships and licence agreements."

"This partnership with Skinvisible allows RHEI to capitalize on the benefits of their Invisicare technology platform and will diversify the products offered by RHEI to the medical community," said Dr. Geert Cauwenbergh, Chairman and CEO of RHEI Pharmaceuticals. "Building on our demonstrated abilities at obtaining regulatory approvals and our experience in the Chinese healthcare market, our strategic investment in the development of an expanded dermatology product line formulated with Invisicare will be a great asset to our company and its bottom-line."
