Riversol for Rosy Cheeks
By Christine Cheng, R.Ph., Tian Zhang, R.Ph., and Fred Cheng, R.Ph.

Q: My face is very sensitive because I have rosacea. Is there a line of products that you could suggest for me?

A: It can be difficult to find products that won’t worsen the symptoms of rosacea. In our pharmacies, we have seen good success in treating rosacea with a dermatological line of products called RIVERSOL.  Riversol was developed by Dr. Jason Rivers, a Clinical Professor of Dermatology and past director of the Dermatology Residency Program at the University of British Columbia. His extensive pharmaceutical skincare line uses a red cedar tree extract, a naturally anti-microbial ingredient unique to the Pacific Northwest that has demonstrated efficacy in calming the skin and reducing rosacea flare ups. Combined with stabilized vitamin C (to accelerate the healing of damaged tissues) and vitamin E (to hydrate the skin and bolster its defence against UV radiation), the red cedar tree extract is clinically proven to fight free radicals, heal the skin and help reduce the appearance of sun and age spots as well as reduce overall inflammatory symptoms. Riversol products are fragrance-free, sulphate-free and dye-free.
