About Emtrix® and nail diseases
Emtrix® is a prescription free, topical nail product and has the potential to become first-line treatment for common nail disorders. Launch of Emtrix® was initiated in the first markets in September 2010. Safety and efficacy has been demonstrated in several clinical studies including more than 500 patients. Emtrix® has a unique and rapid mechanism of action which brings visible improvements within 2-4 weeks of treatment.

Nail fungus is the most common nail disease and afflicts approximately 10% of the general population and is more common in the elderly. The estimated global market potential exceeds USD 1 billion. The untapped potential is significant since many patients remain untreated. It is generally recognized that there is a need for new efficacious and safe topical treatments. 

About Kaprolac® and dry and scaly skin
The Kaprolac® product range includes five environmentally friendly, non-prescription products, the first of which were launched in autumn 2010. Efficacy and safety have been demonstrated in several clinical trials on over 400 patients. Kaprolac® has clinically proven emollient and keratolytic effects and is based on proven compounds with documented safety. The products are based on biodegradable substances, are free from preservatives and have been granted the Nordic ecolabel - 'Svanen'.

Dry skin is a common problem - not least for patients with atopic eczema. The prevalence of atopic eczema in developed countries is 15-30% in children and 2-10% in adults.
