    Only if you scrape off the gelatinous ooze that comes out of the can first.

    That's the best part, it turns you green, which as we know counteracts the redness = instant rosacea treatment

    Truthfully, I am skeptical as the company appears to be just marketing products to all segments of the population. I mean pyratine seemed to be a disappointment for most and if they felt the need to send a "spy" to push the product well that doesn't speak highly for what they themselves think about the product unfortunately.

    But who knows? Maybe we will be pleasantly surprised but I for one will not be spending my very hard earned money for a product that has this type of track record. Samples are another matter and if the company is reading this I would suggest to make available samples at a nominal fee for trial purposes. In this type of economy people are going to be less free with risking their money on very iffy items IMO.

    Best wishes,
    Melissa

    Default agreed

    I agree with Melissa:

    1. The stuff is ridiculously expensive
    2. It went "cosmetic" as to avoid having to conduct rigorous testing
    3. It's claims are yet to be approved by the FDA as far as I could find
    4. There are no 3rd party tests of this product, only in house research done by the company
    5. In the tests that were done the claim was that it was tested on people with mild to moderate rosacea, but the test data itself remains largely unpublished. Further: http://www.dermatology.uci.edu/IID%2...er%20final.pdf

    Are you kidding me? If the two test subjects pictured are the best examples to sell this product then it appears to only work well for those with really, really, really mild Rosacea.

    6. I havn't heard one good thing about Pyratine 6 from a real Rosacea sufferer, it is hard to imagine why this is going to be that much better
    7. Spamming Rosacea web boards for business suggests a $ grab
    8. I don't know why this plant derivative substance is significantly different from others that have been around for some time that claim to also be anti-inflammatory and effective on ROS.

    Bottom line, there is no real reason to believe this product will work imo, but the jury is out. Once is comes out, if some reliable people post good results it might be worth a try. I would prefer seeing a large scale 3rd party double blind study on it.

    How do they pull the "cosmetic" move off anyway?

    What's the difference between this stuff and an actual drug that is required to go through Phase III type testing of say 100 -1000 people before this promotonal campaign ?
