Care Pro Solutions

Care Pro Solutions: Care Pro Solutions is a product development and marketing business focused on creating world-class disruptive antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiviral personal care products. Z Clear, Care Pro’s anti-acne product, is a revolutionary acne formulation based on patented technology developed by Columbia’s Dr. Shanta Modak. Z Clear’s technology eliminated pimples, blackheads, zits and acne safely by (1) acting quickly and effectively to do away with acne, (2) eliminating the damaging side effects of benzoyl peroxide-based products, (3) removing benzoyl peroxide from all its anti-acne products, and (4) incorporating ZytrelPlus technology in an FDA OTC formula, that transforms the skin so it is acne free, smooth and clear, without the debilitating side effects associated with benzoyl peroxide and alpha hydroxy acid acne products. Z Clear’s development has progressed to the stage where no further testing is required for its acne products to be deemed FDA OTC qualified to treat acne. Z Clear’s manufacturing facility has determined the products are stable so that the next stage for Z Clear is for Care Pro to bring the products to market. Care Pro Solutions has patent rights throughout most of the world for its technology and is in the process of negotiating a major distribution agreement for Z Clear with an established Chinese pharmaceutical company for the China market.
