AFT Pharmaceuticals (NZX: AFT , ASX: AFP) today announces an agreement with Hainan Haiyao Co. Ltd (Shenzhen Stock Exchange SZ:000566) to distribute Crystaderm® cream in China, the second largest pharma market in the world1.

Crystaderm cream is a proprietary product that treats skin infections by the slow release of hydrogen peroxide onto the skin as an alternative to topical antibiotics, which if misused risk development of drug resistant bacteria2.


AFT Pharmaceuticals Managing Director Dr Hartley Atkinson said: “We are excited to announce our partnership with Haiyao, an established pharmaceutical distribution company in China.

“We anticipate the launch will occur during this calendar year and believe that that there is a significant potential for this product in such a large population base.”

Hayao Pharmaceuticals Chairman Mr. Wang Jianping stated: “We are delighted to partner with AFT to bring Crystaderm to Chinese consumers. There has been an unmet clinical demand in the Chinese acne market for a long time. As a new acne drug and anti-infective product without hormones and antibiotics, Crystaderm has been proven to be effective. Haiyao will carry out the commercialization process of Crystaderm in China. We are excited about its potential and developing our relationship with AFT.”


For and on behalf of AFT Pharmaceuticals Limited by Malcolm Tubby, Chief Financial Officer.
