Posted on June 3rd, by Bourse Communications in News and Announcements. Comments Off on Media Release: Skin Elements’ Natural Plant Based SE FormulaTM Successfully Tests Against Feline Coronavirus, a Surrogate of Coronavirus COVID-19

Skin
Elements’ Natural Plant Based SE FormulaTM Successfully Tests
Against Feline Coronavirus, a Surrogate of Coronavirus COVID-19

Independent laboratory testing of the SE
FormulaTM  successfully
demonstrates 99.99% effectiveness against Feline Coronavirus, a surrogate of
Coronavirus COVID-19

Established Australian natural
skin care company Skin Elements Limited (ASX: SKN) (“Skin
Elements”, “the Company”), is pleased to advise that its SE FormulaTM,
a plant based active formulation has received the results from independent
laboratory testing which demonstrates 99.99% effectiveness against Feline
coronavirus, a surrogate of Coronavirus COVID-19.  

Skin Elements has utilised its
expertise in developing advanced anti-microbial natural skincare formulations
to produce the SE Formula TM, which is an alcohol free
all-natural  formulation incorporating
natural plant based extracts designed to deliver maximum protection whilst
addressing increasing concerns about skin sensitivity due to the high
repetitive use of alcohol-based sanitisers. 

Testing Results

The independent test results for the
SE Formula TM demonstrated a 4-log reduction (99.99% effectiveness).  This means that 99.99% of the virus is killed
after exposure to the SE Formula TM.

Log reduction is a common
logarithm measure of how thoroughly a decontamination process reduces the concentration
of a contaminant.
In general, an n-log reduction means that the concentration of remaining
contaminants is only 10−n times that of the original. So for
example, a 0-log reduction is no reduction at all, while a 1-log reduction
corresponds to a reduction of 90% … Read More »

Media Release: INEDA APP HELPS CONSUMERS SAVE DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AS EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS

Posted on May 12th, by Bourse Communications in News and Announcements. Comments Off on Media Release: INEDA APP HELPS CONSUMERS SAVE DURING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC AS EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS

A Win for Consumers, a Win for the Retailers and a Win for the Economy!

A new money-saving app is saving Australian consumers and
businesses. The ineda app was designed to create a ‘peoples market’ to help
Australian consumers save hundreds and thousands on appliances, insurance,
utilities and white goods, with plenty more on the app, and to help businesses
stay in business.

The free ineda app is
unique in the way it transparently facilitates consumers and retailers in a
reverse auction across numerous categories. The consumer may feel they are not
getting the best deal online or in store, so they will ‘post’ on the ineda app
for the goods they are after, a fridge or a washing machine for example. The
consumer will then receive numerous bids from local and interstate retailers,
‘some big names and some small operators’ with lower prices than advertised
online or in store. The consumer is then able to select the lowest price from
the retailer they choose, and organise for the delivery of their new fridge or
washing machine the next day. How good is that? It’s a win, win, win!  A
win for the consumer, a win for the retailer and a win for the economy!

While isolation thanks to COVID-19 may be good for our
health, it is … Read More »

“The supply agreement with

growth plans, which includes the development of different cannabinoid
formulations into active ingredients to treat different diseases and their
symptoms like insomnia, pain and stress.

“We are committed to
providing patients with safe, affordable and effective treatments. Built upon
the novel and patented WaferiX® technology, the unique and superior sublingual
cannabis wafers are well-positioned to disrupt the current market of medicinal
cannabis products.”

Ms Eva Tan, Director of
Corporate and Commercial Strategy of iX Biopharma said:

“We are excited to partner
with leaders like Cannatrek to reach Australian patients through their
well-established network of prescribers and pharmacies. Patients are now more
knowledgeable about the advantages of sublingually administered cannabis
medicines in increasing bioavailability and improving patient outcomes. … Read More »
