If necessity is the mother of invention, then illness can be the genesis for scientific breakthroughs. Millions of people worldwide suffer from rosacea, an unsightly redness and inflammation of facial skin. One of those is Piotr Chomczynski, Ph.D., a molecular scientist determined to discover a remedy.
Beset with adult-onset rosacea (roh-ZAY-sha), Dr. Chomczynski was determined to find a remedy. Over-the-counter gels didn’t help, and the traditional prescription approach – a regimen of antibiotics – wasn’t a long-term answer. Dr. Chomczynski knew the ancients and other scientists had used menthol and mint leaves to alleviate skin ailments. In 2002, Dr. Chomczynski began experimenting with mint leaves snipped from his own garden. In his personal lab at his biotechnology company, Molecular Research Center Inc., he crafted compounds and tested mixtures on his own skin – until four years later he found just the right blend. The result is Noredol® Skin Care Gel, a patented product that relieves sensitive skin and the redness associated with rosacea.
Dr. Chomczynski has built his career at the crossroads of bio-science and business. A molecular biologist and chemist, patent-holding inventor and serial entrepreneur, Dr. Chomczynski turns his research and discoveries into life-improving products. In 1989, he founded
Born in 1942, Dr. Chomczynski (“home-chin-ski”) earned his M.A. in biochemistry from the

Today, Dr. Chomczynski consults and collaborates with scientists worldwide seeking to mimic his methods of exploring disease and advancing the cause of illness prevention and treatment. More importantly, though, skin-care professionals are recommending Noredol® to patients to relieve what has been a life-long malady. To Dr. Chomczynski, Noredol® is more than a product. It represents Cinna’s philosophy regarding its patented discoveries: “Our products are inspired by nature and improved through science.”
