SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J., Dec. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — PuraCap Pharmaceutical LLC announced today the introduction of two new acne products in their Eptex™ line of intelligent, physiologic skin repair formulations, Eptex Controlled Release Acne Wash and Eptex Controlled Release Acne Relief Lotion. The Eptex non-prescription acne product line utilizes cutting-edge delivery systems and proven ingredients to effectively treat acne for patients with sensitive skin, and is available through healthcare professionals.
