San Francisco, California
Acne remedies are a $300 million a year business. But most topical treatments take 6 to 8 weeks to be effective and do not work on pimples after they appear. Therative had a new idea and asked Compass to package their unique acne treatment technology in a friendly, inviting design that fits easily in the hand. The result is ThermaClear, a small, hand-held unit that uses a proprietary Thermal Pulse Technology to deliver a powerful, yet safe, pulse of heat to neutralize acne bacteria eliminating pimples at the source. The Therative technology makes a treatment fast, only 2 seconds compared to the competitor's 2½ minutes.
In 2007, ThermaClear was included in the San Francisco International Airport Bay Area Design Exhibition to coincide with the IDSA/ICSID International Design Conference held in San Francisco in October, 2007. The exhibit was on dislay for six months in one of the concourses at the International Terminal. The ThermaClear exhibit had examples of the earliest clay models, sketches, prototypes that were used to test the design and a final, production unit. To see the exhibit, click here.
