Why FDA Approval is Important

by Elyssa Conley

Only Skineez® compression socks and items have FDA approval. Why is this important? FDA approval proves the Skineez® benefits are true. According to the official U.S. Food and Drug Administration website, the "FDA is responsible for protecting public health by regulating human drugs and biologics..." The FDA is the official source on whether the benefits of a drug will outweigh its potential harm, risks, and uncertainties.

The FDA approval certifies that Skineez® products have been tested and reviewed by FDA scientists at its Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). The process ensures the moisturizers deliver the effects that Skineez® claims on the packaging and as stated on the website. In particular, Skineez© uses patented microencapsulation technology to deliver five essential ingredients over time to protect and repair your skin. Shea butter moisturizes the skin, and apricot Kernel Oil increases elasticity. Rose Hip Oil rejuvenates through fatty acids and Vitamin A. Retinol, also a source of Vitamin A, helps the skin rejuvenate and boosts your immune system. Vitamin E helps repair your skin. The patented fabric construction delivers these nutrients to your skin, where you flex and move in the sleeve.

These benefits delivered by Skineez® fabrics have been proven and approved, and no competitor has undergone this testing or proven these types of claims. Skineez® is the only fabric for compression socks and garments and for diabetic socks that has FDA approval for the nutrients encapsulated in the fabrics and delivered to your skin.

As the FDA states on its official website, "CDER's evaluation not only prevents quackery but also provides doctors and patients the information they need to use medicines wisely." In the worst case, competitive products make false or empty claims about what their products provide to you. In other cases, competitors exaggerate the benefit of their socks and clothing without any proof for what they say.

Choose Skineez® to get the benefits you deserve. Only Skineez® items have the FDA approval to guarantee these benefits for your skin.
