NORTH LIMA, Ohio — Perfecta Products Inc. unveiled two new skin care products into the Zim's line, the company announced on Thursday.
Zim's Advanced is adding two new products: Advanced with Hydrocortisone and Advanced Gel with Acemannan. Zim's Advanced with Hydrocortisone is the latest in naturally-based first aid products that help with a host of skin care issues, including rashes, insect bites, eczema and psoriasis, the company stated. The Zim's Advanced Gel with Acemannan can help treat cuts, scrapes, abrasions and burns. Zim's Advanced Gel will be available in a 3-oz. version and Zim's Advanced with Hydrocortisone will be available in a 3-oz. cream form as well as a 3.25-oz. continuous spray.
"We are not just about cracked skin anymore,'' said Perfecta Products Inc. director of marketing and sales Mark Smith. "Our new Zim's Advanced items are designed to meet consumers' requests for more natural-based products. We have combined science and nature to create superior products."
In addition to Zim's Advanced, Perfecta Products will also release Zim's Arnica Max. Zim's Arnica Max includes a proprietary blend of arnica and aloe vera, which includes organic aloe, natural menthol and arnica. It will be available in 4-oz. gel and 3-oz. roll-on.
Arnica is one of the most popular homeopathic medicines and is used by many athletes and weekend warriors worldwide, the company noted.
"Perfecta Products has been a leader in the use of arnica and other natural products in the topical analgesics category. We have been using it in our products for more than 60 years," Smith said. "We felt it was important to bring out a new product specially formulated using maximum arnica to provide temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscle and joints associated with simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises and sprains."
