Some friendly words from the Irish Examiner recently seeking to create an Irish link to the topical treatment known as Rossoseq. According to the article Rossoseq is being made available firstly in Ireland.

Rossoseq has been associated with a mild reduction in redness in a small trial of 10 users.

What is Rossoseq?

The product page for Rossoseq describes it as a product “formulated to distribute Sequessome vesicles into lower dermal tissues in the skin and is designed to treat conditions such as psoriasis.”. A further description of the product was provided in the article suggesting that Rossoseq helps the lymphatic system drain.

Rossoseq Ingredients

Aqua, Phosphatidylcholine, Polysorbate 80, Alcohol, Glycerin, Disodium phosphate, Benzyl alcohol, Sodium phosphate, Disodium

Red alert: New hope for rosacea skin condition

According to the company, research published in April in a leading European dermatology journal found four of ten rosacea patients trialled with Rossoseq showed at least 33% reduction in redness. Half showed a similar reduction in flushing.

Dr Bill Henry of Pro Bono Bio explains: “Redness associated with rosacea is due [largely] to accumulation of chemicals within the affected tissue [because of] malfunctioning of lymphatic drainage. Rossoseq exploits Sequessome technology, which is based on tiny spheres of hydrophilic phospholipid that have been engineered to penetrate the skin and improve the functioning of the water-based lymphatic system.”

Basically, Rossoseq improves local lymphatic drainage, clearing and relieving the redness.

Dr Craven, who was involved in an advisory capacity rather than in developing or trialling the product, says he’s excited about a cream that appears to reduce redness. “It doesn’t seem to have any active ingredient that could cause side-effects. Some people find antibiotic creams and lotions can irritate or cause allergy. And having to take antibiotic tablets opens up a whole range of side-effects, such as tummy upset. I doubt the product will cure rosacea — it’s likely to give short-term improvement.”
