What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic disorder of the facial skin that is often characterized by flare-ups and remissions. According to the updated standard classification of rosacea, the presence of persistent facial redness (erythema) or, less commonly, phymatous changes where the skin thickens are considered diagnostic of the disorder.3 Additional major signs, which often appear with the diagnostic features, include bumps (papules) and pimples (pustules), flushing, visible blood vessels (telangiectasia) and certain eye (ocular) manifestations. The presence of two or more major features independent of the diagnostic signs is also considered diagnostic of rosacea, and secondary signs and symptoms include burning or stinging, swelling (edema) and dry appearance.

About the National Rosacea Society Seal of Acceptance™
The NRS Seal of Acceptance program identifies gentle skin care and cosmetic products that may be suitable for people who suffer from rosacea. To be considered for the Seal, skin care and cosmetic products must be free of ingredients that cause skin barrier dysfunction, vasomotor instability (flushing) or unwanted neurosensory stimulation, such as burning or itching. Each product earning the Seal of Acceptance has gone through clinical testing to determine safety and low risk for irritation and sensitization in people with rosacea skin. Applications are anonymously reviewed by an independent panel of dermatologists. More information about the Seal and a directory of accepted products may be found online at
