Joel Schlessinger MD and his son, Daniel, were recently awarded the patent for their FixMySkin Healing Balm with 1% Hydrocortisone. This unique formula was developed with hydrocortisone to not only moisturize, but also treat and heal the skin. A quick swipe will relieve itching and heal dry skin, chapped lips, psoriasis, eczema, insect bites, poison ivy, seborrheic dermatitis and allergic skin reactions to cosmetics and other products.
This unique balm was created to soothe chapped fingers, Joel Schlessinger MD explains.
FixMySkin Healing Balm was invented seven years ago when young Daniel Schlessinger struggled with dry, chapped skin on his hands in the middle of winter. Daniel put lip balm on his chapped fingers and wondered if there was a balm made specifically for this concern that really worked. His father, board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Joel Schlessinger MD, and he were made it their mission to find out.
After thousands of hours of research, product development and testing, FixMySkin was born. Joel Schlessinger MD and Daniel worked to find a cosmetically elegant formula that delivered hydrocortisone deep into the skin. Additionally, they formulated the balm with a special combination of waxes that allows the product to remain solid even when warm so it won’t melt in a purse or pocket.
Joel Schlessinger MD says the creation of FixMySkin has been a great learning experience for Daniel.
“The best part of the process was seeing my son, Daniel, progress to learn so much from start to finish,” Joel Schlessinger MD said. “He worked as the go-between with the FDA approval process, oversaw the packaging and claims, and worked with the patent attorney on the trials, ingredients, and application process. No one knew he was a high school student at the time.”
