IS Clinical Improperly Using Phytoceuticals Inc Proprietary Research To Sell Products With Proven Quality Issues
on: November 23, 2009, 9:54 am
PhytoCeuticals, Inc., strongly cautions its customers that
some claims being made by IS Clinical about their products improperly
uses scientific publications, clinical trials and research that are the
exclusive property of PhytoCeuticals, Inc. and its founder, Dr. Mostafa
Dr. Mostafa Omar, PhytoCeutical’s president, is the highly respected developer and
manufacturer of proprietary skin care formulations and the inventor of Stable Liquid
L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).
PhytoCeuticals has developed several formulations, including stabilized liquid
L-Ascorbic Acid in 1994. The company had distributed these products through
Cellex-C, SkinCeuticals and IS Clinical. PhytoCeuticals permitted these companies
the use of these scientific publications, clinical trials and research citations to
support the marketing of PhytoCeuticals formulations.
PhytoCeuticals terminated its relationship (July 1, 2008) with IS Clinical by
Innovation Skincare (Science of Skincare Inc.). Therefore IS Clinical no longer
distributes any products using PhytoCeuticals formulations.
In addition, these companies surrendered the rights to use this materials for
advertising and publicity claims. The only legal use of these studies is to support
the sale of products formulated or developed by Dr. Omar and PhytoCeuticals, Inc.
PhytoCeuticals continues to retain the ownership of all its proprietary
formulations, as well as the scientific research, publications, patents and grants
from National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Institute of Health (NIH).
Since the termination of the business relationship, PhytoCeuticals has received
numerous requests from customers who have purchased IS Clinical products, (which do
not contain PhytoCeuticals formulations) to exchange these IS Clinical products for
genuine PhytoCeuticals PHYTO-C products.
Dr. Omar has stated that, “The acceptance of exchanges of IS Clinical new products
for PhytoCeuticals PHYTO-C products was initially a courtesy to patients who thought
they were still purchasing our formulations. It is my ethical duty to help and
treat these patients – which is more important then making a profit. But we must be
Any purchaser of IS Clinical skincare products who is dissatisfied, should return
these products to IS Clinical directly for refunds or substitute products.
PhytoCeuticals has no responsibility and does not guarantee IS Clinical products.
PhytoCeuticals is currently is unaware of any controlled clinical testing, stability
testing or research undertaken by IS Clinical with respect to the products it has
been selling since July 1, 2008.
Dr. Mostafa Omar stated, “Normally a clinical study and testing of a new formulation
takes at least 5 years or more before a product is launched into the marketplace.
To the extent that IS Clinical claims that it has undertaken extensive research in
connection with its products, customers should confirm that the research cited is
genuine and not proprietary research using authentic PhytoCeuticals formulations.”
