Sarna® Sensitive Lotion Awarded National Eczema Association (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™

July 9, 2020 - Johnson City, TN   Crown Laboratories, a leading skincare company committed to skin science for life, announced today that Sarna Lotion, Crown’s steroid-free anti-itch moisturizer, has just been awarded the prestigious NEA Seal of Acceptance.

NEA evaluates the rigorous clinical safety testing that products have undergone to ensure their ingredients meet NEA’s strict standards. In addition to being steroid-free, Sarna Sensitive Lotion is fragrance, dye, and paraben free, so it is no wonder it is the number one anti-itch dermatologist recommended brand. Sarna Sensitive Lotion’s 1% pramoxine hydrochloride (external analgesic) formulation is safe and effective for daily use.

“We have long been aware that steroid treatments can become problematic if used for long durations,” said Steve Gallopo, Crown’s Vice President, US/Global Therapeutic Marketing. “Eczema is a chronic condition that warrants a long-term therapy. With the Seal of Acceptance, Sarna Sensitive Lotion users can rest assured they are purchasing a quality product that is supported by this highly-regarded and independent organization.”

Crown will incorporate NEA’s Seal of Acceptancein Sarna Sensitive Lotion’s packaging, digital, and print communications. Sarna Sensitive Lotion is available at the following national retrailers: CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid and Amazon. To learn more about Sarna, visit
