Through much research, I discovered that IFC is the manufacturer of this product. Biopelle just got clearance in February 2010 to exclusively distribute and market IFC's product to the US. The Douglas product (shown here)is the distributer in New Zealand.
To tell them apart, the Douglas product has the circle with the curved line underneath. (This is the IFC logo, so we know they are an authorized, legitimate distributer or there would be a serious copyright lawsuit in progress.) The Biopelle product has a fern on the packaging.
I hope my research has helped clear up any confusion. I am planning to purchase this product, but wanted to make sure that it wasn't a dangerous knockoff or otherwise unauthorized product--hence the several hours of internet research I did to track down who makes what. It is amazing to me how hard it was--transparency in pharmaceuticals should be the order of the day!!!

So I did a little research. I read about a New Zealand dermatologist, who, having heard that one of the local maori inhabitants used a native fern to treat various skin complaints, tried it on some of his own patients with chronic problems. He was delighted with the results and recommended clinical testing. The Germans and a couple other countries have since done some studies and they, too, were impressed with the results. I was desperate enough to order some and I'm glad I did. As per directions, I wait till the symptoms start in spring and then I take one pill a day for the summer months. Halleluia. Relief. When I take the heliocare, I am pretty much symptom free. I can bicycle the lakefront again! I can go canoeing! Hooray!
Interesting note, I also used to get hives when I ate oranges, grapefruits, (any citrus really) and vitamin C pills, When I'm taking heliocare, I don't. Now that's a side effect I can live with.
