New skin care kits help caregivers, patients


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — McCord Research in partnership with Product Quest Manufacturing announced today the launch of its new hospital-grade skin care kits called At Home – Where Healing Happens™ skin care. The formulas are designed to improve patient outcomes in the home and address specific skin conditions commonly faced by senior patients over the age of 65. Based on the same medical protocol practiced by hospitals, long-term care and home health agencies, At Home offers superior skin care for conditions that chronically affect patients.

“The proportionate number of older adults in the United States is unprecedented, and as Baby Boomers continue to age, it is critical we make available treatments and remedies that address chronic skin conditions frequently faced by this population,” said John Regan, President of Product Quest. “At Home’s extensive product line will ensure patients can improve their individual skin conditions and prevent serious complications from the comforts of their own home, the best place for healing to happen.”

The At Home skin care line features eight kits, each carefully developed in a two-step process to manage advanced skin conditions while ensuring the skin is properly cleansed, moisturized and protected. The line includes:

• Diabetic skin care

• Chronic dry skin care

• Antifungal skin care

• Fragile skin bruising skin care

• Venous skin care

• Incontinent skin care

• Radiation skin care

• Edema skin care

Developed by with D. Elizabeth McCord, Ph.D., FAPWCA, of McCord Research, each hospital-grade skin care kit has the added benefit of Viniferamine, a scientifically-advanced blend of nutrient-rich small molecules carefully curated for their healing qualities. Viniferamine, originally developed by Dr. McCord in 2011, is a combination of organic extracts, including those of the Vitis Vinifera, a common grapevine that is native to the Mediterranean region and historically used in treating body ailments.

“For patients, the biggest disparity between institutional and home care settings is skin care,” said Dr. McCord. “Previously, these types of strong, effective skin care remedies were only available at hospitals and in the medical community. With the launch of At Home skin care, these treatments are now broadly accessible outside of the hospital, with recognizable packaging and easy to understand instructions. This not only helps to improve patient outcomes in the home setting, but also helps to restore dignity and confidence in patients.”

At Home’s hospital-grade skin-care systems are now exclusively available in select CVS Pharmacy stores and online at CVS.com. For more information on At Home, visit www.athomeskinremedies.com.
