Sirona Biochem CEO: Unique Opportunity for Global Success in the Cosmetic and Therapeutic Spaces

- October 14th, 2021

Sirona Biochem CEO Howard Verrico said the company is charged up to succeed in both the cosmetic and therapeutic spaces.

Sirona Biochem (TSXV:SBM) has revealed positive results from a clinical study on its active ingredient TFC-1067. Sirona Biochem CEO Howard Verrico said the company is charged up to succeed in both the cosmetic and therapeutic spaces.

“We apply our technology to improve the efficiency of molecules, fuse their efficacy from reduced toxicity, and just make a better compound. So there are opportunities to come up in multiple fields leading us into the cosmetic space and also into the therapeutic space. The cosmetic space is a much shorter path to commercialization, while therapeutics is a more traditional, but very rewarding path. So we take advantage of both opportunities,” said Dr. Verrico. 

TFC-1067 is a synthetic active and a part of the arbutin family. Sirona’s proprietary platform technology advances this ingredient to correct dark spots and other medical conditions such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, vitiligo and rosacea.
