Date:2/28/2012

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the first time, consumers shopping for over-the-counter products to treat psoriasis—a disease of the immune system that appears on the skin, affecting as many as 7.5 million Americans—and psoriatic arthritis—an inflammatory joint and tendon disease—will find a National Psoriasis Foundation Seal of Recognition on items that dermatology experts deem effective in relieving disease symptoms. Learn about the program at www.psoriasis.org/licensing.

Five products for scalp psoriasis made by Neutrogena Corp. and one product by Alva-Amco Pharmacal are the first to feature the seal. Available on store shelves nationwide, the seal products include the Neutrogena line of T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo in three formulations: "Original Formula," "Extra Strength" and "Stubborn Itch"; T/Gel Therapeutic Conditioner; and T/Sal Therapeutic Shampoo.

People with plaque psoriasis—the most prevalent form of the disease, affecting up to 80 percent of people with psoriasis—will find the Foundation seal on Alva-Amco's Psoriasin Gel in all major pharmacies.

"Improving the quality of life for people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis is the reason the Foundation has launched its seal program," said Eric Kimble, National Psoriasis Foundation Board of Trustees member and head of the corporate review committee for the seal. "The seal will help consumers identify, from a maze of available products, items that could provide a benefit for psoriatic diseases."

To qualify for Foundation recognition, products are reviewed by a panel of dermatology experts w
