Paraben-free Liposomal Lid Hygiene Product Launched by Candorvision
Patients with dry eye, blepharitis conjunctivitis and other conditions requiring eyelid hygiene now have a paraben-free, soap-free solution. CALMO® LidCare, a new lid hygiene product from Candorvision, contains liposomes which effectively cleanse the eyelid margins while exerting a stabilizing effect on the lipid layer of the tear film, according to the company announcement.
Results of a comparative study of baby shampoo and the phospholipid-liposmal solution among contact lens wearers, published in Ophthalmologe, concluded that the clinical practice of recommending soap-based baby shampoo should be reconsidered since the phospholipid-liposomal solution provided faster and greater clinical relief of dry eye symptoms.
Candorvision founder Dr. Frank Heidemann a Canadian/German Pharmacist said, “CALMO® Lid Care has proven itself with millions of patients in Germany and Europe. Now, Canadian patients can benefit from a gentle and effective eyelid cleansing suspension that is suitable for sensitive skin, due to the absence of parabens, fragrances, tensides (soap) and other irritants.”
Instructions on the proper application of the product are available on the Candorvision website (http://candorvision.com/use-calmo-lid-care/).
