Ala-Septic solution was developed by Allen Cohen out of his desire and hobby of dermatology research stemming from a personal family battle with disease. After a few anecdotal successes, Mr. Cohen has secured a US Patent (7,597,914) for the product. 98% of the ingredients in the product are naturally occurring and are regarded as safe as no one has reported any side effects with the product. Ala-Septic is classified under the FDA as an OTC drug for eczema; therefore we cannot make any claims regarding the efficacy or make any correlation to any indications outside of this use. We can make general statements such as application instructions etc. The product as of March 2010 has been used on about 20 people for a wide range of ailments. These conditions include eczema, sun spots, etc. Again we must emphasize often that this product has not been evaluated by the FDA outside of eczema and it is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease outside of the eczema monograph.
