(NASDAQ:JUPW) today announced it has signed an agreement with India-based companies Cosmofix Technology Pvt Ltd and Sanpellegrino Cosmetics Pvt Ltd for the manufacture, sale, and distribution of three proprietary products related to its recent acquisition of Ascent Clinical Research.

About the Products
Minoxidil, sold under the commercial name brand Rogaine®, is the top-selling hair growth product in the world with projected worldwide sales of $1.2 billion by 2024.
MinoxiBoost: Improves Response to Minoxidil for Increased Hair Growth
MinoxiBoost is a patent-pending breakthrough hair booster system used before a daily minoxidil routine. MinoxiBoost helps to support healthy hair growth by enriching the hair and the sulfotransferase enzymes in the hair to give hair the boost it needs. In a 2-week clinical study using MinoxiBoost, published in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venerology, people with low hair sulfotransferase enzyme levels experienced up to a 7X boost in their hair enzyme levels.
MinoxiClean: Removes Minoxidil's Greasy Residue to Improve Styling
MinoxiClean is a patent-pending, dry cleansing system used after a daily minoxidil routine. Removing unneeded greasy residue from hair after minoxidil application, MinoxiClean improves the ease of styling. In a clinical study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, subjects using MinoxiClean reported statistically significant improvement in ease of styling, hair manageability, and reduced greasiness compared to using Minoxidil alone.
Photocil™: Self-Administered Phototherapy from the Sun for Greater Convenience Eliminates Clinic Visit
Photocil is a novel patented topical cream that provides clinically proven relief for psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis (eczema). Photocil acts as a barrier to non-therapeutic radiation from the sun when skin is exposed to direct daylight. With this barrier, Photocil cream empowers the user to access daytime self-treatment from the sun's therapeutic (beneficial) UV radiation, otherwise known as phototherapy, safely and effectively. Through treatment sessions in direct daylight, Photocil delivers the same benefits of traditional phototherapy with a photo lamp, with greater convenience and access. Before the advent of Photocil cream, phototherapy was only available through a UV photo lamp, most commonly administered at a medical clinic.
"This agreement is Jupiter's first step in unlocking the massive potential in these three highly innovative products that address significant global markets. MinoxiClean and MinoxiBoost are complementary products that can be sold alongside the estimated 100 million units of minoxidil projected for 2024. Photoci offers convenience and empowers patient self-care for the hundreds of millions of people living with psoriasis, eczema, and vitiligo," said Brian John, CEO of Jupiter Wellness.
