MyRxProfile App (www.MyRXProfile.com)

The MyRxProfile app is an efficient way to manage your over the counter and prescription medications. It lets you check drug information and interactions simply by scanning a bar code. Developed by Robert Baker, a pharmacist in the New York/New Jersey area for over 25 years, who over decades has built the trust of the community by providing expertise on both OTC and prescription medications. He wanted to share this knowledge with the world and, thus, MyRxProfile was born. This app provides critical information about the medicines you and your family are taking so you can stay informed and safe. With the MyRXProfile app you can use your phone to scan the barcode on any medication no matter where you are. It lets you create profiles for yourself and your loved ones to keep track of everyone’s medications. As adverse drug interactions are among the leading causes of death in America, this app offers true peace of mind by letting you know, with more certainty, your family’s prescription and OTC drug interaction risks.

PrivateRX Women's Intimate Skincare (www.PrivateRX.com

PrivateRx Intimate Skin Care products, developed by Dr. Ronald D. Blatt, Medical Director and Chief Surgeon of the Manhattan Center for Vaginal Surgery and the Manhattan Centers for Women's Health, are specially formulated for the delicate skin of a woman’s most intimate area to help fight the effects of aging and damaged skin. Women age differently than men, and intimate feminine skin reacts differently than facial or body skin to product applications. As estrogen levels decline, so does a woman's natural lubrication. Many women experience this prior to, or during, menopause, but it can impact a woman at any age. Diminished estrogen can lead to external and internal vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy, resulting in undernourished, under-hydrated, aged skin. A woman might then experience daily personal discomfort and a diminished interest in intimacy. PrivateRX feminine care products help firm, soothe, tighten and moisturize while gently delivering powerful anti-aging benefits in a safe and gentle way. The line includes Internal Vaginal Moisturizer, a long-lasting super-moisturizing system to help reduce vaginal dryness for comfort and confidence; External Vaginal Moisturizer, a unique skin treatment that moisturizes the external vaginal area to help alleviate dryness; and Personal Vaginal Lubricant, the ultimate lubricant to safely enhance sexual pleasure and also provides relief from vaginal dryness. For shaving and waxing, PrivateRX also offers Cooling Pads and Soothing Serum. All PrivateRX products are designed with the sole purpose of empowering women with better options for intimate skin care solutions.
