EpiLynx Skin Care and Cosmetics is proud to announce its sponsorship with the Celiac Disease Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to driving diagnosis, treatments, and a cure for celiac disease through research, education, and advocacy.
Affecting 1 in 100 people worldwide, celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. It is estimated that 3 million Americans live with celiac disease, but 2.5 million do not know they have it, leaving them at risk for long-term and serious health complications. A partnership with the Celiac Disease Foundation strengthens EpiLynx’s dedication to raising awareness of this serious disease while providing safe, gluten-free skin care options for those with celiac disease and other autoimmune disorders.
Dr. Liia Ramachandra, founder of EpiLynx Skin Care and Cosmetics, was diagnosed with psoriasis at a young age and a gluten intolerance as an adult. EpiLynx developed out of her personal need for gluten-free products. Dr. Liia saw that there was not a skin care company that specifically catered to those with celiac disease, autoimmune disorders, and other allergies. Thus, EpiLynx was born.
Dr. Liia dedicated herself to making gluten-free, allergen-free skincare that is not only safe but transforms the skin. Her hope is to make people with autoimmune diseases and allergies proud of their complexion and to always feel beautiful. She says, “I want to re-instill confidence in those affected by autoimmune issues, so that they can be proud of their skin.” Dr. Liia adds, “We want everyone to feel beautiful using EpiLynx products, and we stand by our motto ‘Because You are Special.’”
“The Celiac Disease Foundation is pleased to partner with EpiLynx, which shares our common goals of raising awareness for celiac disease and providing safe products for our celiac community,” said the Foundation’s Chief Executive, Marilyn G. Geller. “Together, our impact is greater, as we strive to improve the quality of life for everyone affected by celiac disease.”
EpiLynx is proud to be a sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation and provide 100% gluten-free products to all consumers.
