Being the leader in the Pharmaceutical industry we live up to our theme of “enriching lives” through the knowledge we disseminate to the medical profession which in turn enriches the lives of patients, hence citizens of our Motherland. Focus on “Demand Creation” is a core competence and identified as one of the critical success factors for Principal organisations represented by Hemas Pharmaceuticals. Therefore the Management of our company has placed importance on this aspect and focused attention at frontline Medical Promotional staff to develop their technical and behavioural competencies by way of continuous training and development to gain an edge over competitors.
With this view, the Management of Hemas Pharmaceuticals designed the MEDICAL DELEGATES’ PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (MDPDP) supported by experts from Hemas Hospitals attached to the fields of medicine and pharmacy. The programme successfully concluded its first learning course with the induction of 22 senior Medical Delegates from 08 Principal Agencies, who underwent a rigorous in-house training for 4 ½ months with a comprehensive curriculum that included subjects on Medical Science such as Human Anatomy & Physiology, Pharmaceutics & Pharmacology, Pharmaceuticals Industry, and also learning on behavioural skills related to Personality Development.
The 1st Intake of the MDPDP passed out on the 12th September 2009 and the 2nd Intake of 47 Medical Delegates commenced the programme amidst a distinguished gathering graced by Mr. Husein Esufally, CEO of Hemas Holdings PLC.
Owing to the need for a healthy solution to combat the negative effects that, immobility caused by osteoarthritis, has on the lives of most Sri Lankan’s, Hemas Pharmaceuticals has now launched their latest product re<<flex. re<<flex is a novel brand which comes from FULLIFE Healthcare, a research-based company that is committed to providing innovative healthcare solutions to meet the many unmet needs of people around the world.
re<<flex, a unique dietary supplement for all ages has been clinically proven to provide relief from osteoarthritis symptoms and pain within the short space of 3 weeks.
The fruit or hip (Rosehip) of the Rosa canina, a type of wild rose, is the key ingredient in re<<flex. For centuries this ingredient has been used by people to treat a variety of health conditions. New scientific research has demonstrated that this product is greatly beneficial to people suffering from joint pain especially caused by osteoarthritis.
Rosehip, the key ingredient in re<<flex, is sourced from Europe and unlike other medications it is proven to have no side effects owing to the fact that it is a 100% natural product which also qualifies it as vegetarian product. Rosehips derived from Rosa canina have an antioxidative ingredient cocktail provided by nature. This results in large quantities of naturally occurring vitamin C, vitamin E and bioflavonoids that are known to help reduce oxidative stress and support the maintenance of tissue integrity and health. Thus making re<<flex a logical and natural solution to a problem that afflicts many Sri Lankan’s so that soon many of them will be able lead the active lifestyles they were once accustomed to thereby putting back the ‘life’ back in their lives.
re<<flex is now available in a capsule format at all leading supermarkets and pharmacies island-wide.

Recognizing the vital need for a healthy solution to the negative effects of sugar consumption in Sri Lanka, Hemas Pharmaceuticals launched their latest product – SOLO, a sweetener imported from Natures Only Inc. USA.
SOLO is a sweetener made from Sucralose – the only non-caloric sweetener derived from natural sugar from sugar cane by a unique propriety patented process. Its unique combination of sugar-like taste and excellent stability allow SOLO to be used as a replacement for sugar in virtually every type of food and beverage. Sucralose is used globally in over 4,000 consumer and healthcare products and has been well accepted by consumers world-wide. At present, most other sweeteners currently available in the Sri Lankan market are made out of artificial ingredients such as Aspartame or Saccharine. With Heart Health, Diabetes, Obesity and other such common, but potentially serious conditions on the rise in modern society, the need for changes in lifestyle and alternative consumption habits is highly important.
“Almost all Sri Lankans have a sweet tooth. Cutting down on sugar for health reasons is often perceived as a compromise, especially when most low calorie sweeteners can be used in beverages, and consumers are left having to give up on an ideal experience with their tea, coffee, fruit drinks or even desserts that they’d normally enjoy.” Says Romero Linden , Head of OTC Business at Hemas Pharmaceuticals. “The unique thing about SOLO is that it is both devoid of the negative effects of sugar as well as can be used in home cooking and baking, as it is highly stable even at very high temperatures. Not to mention it has almost no calories, which makes it the ideal alternative to sugar. It is both healthy and allows varied culinary usage.”
SOLO also does not contain Aspartame or saccharine. Because Sucralose has an excellent safety profile, SOLO has a further advantage in that it can be used by anyone, from children to adults, including pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. Additionally, SOLO does not promote tooth decay as does not support the growth of bacteria that cause such dental issues.
The product is now available in tablet and powder formats at all leading supermarkets and pharmacies across the island.

PharmaClinix, the UK’s premiere skin care range for Asian skin is now making its debut in Sri Lanka through Hemas Pharmaceuticals!
The revolutionary skincare products in the PharmaClinix range are specially designed for Asian skin and are scientifically developed to solve the particular problems that people of Asian origin face. PharmaClinix has seen success in over 10,000 pharmacies in over 16 countries, including, UK and Europe, providing customers with the highest quality products and ingredients to give them flawless, smooth complexions.
Asian skin is known for its rich and creamy tones, however maintaining a beautiful colour and even surface can be difficult, especially when there is a constant battle against the harmful effects of the sun and harsh weather. This means that Asian skin often demands special attention as it is prone to dark patches on the face and body. The most popular product by PharmaClinix, Lightenex, has proved to be very effective in lightening these dark patches and helping you achieve an even, glowing skin tone. Other products have seen equal success, such as the miraculous scar reducing cream, Scar Repairex and the latest anti-ageing polypeptide cream Wrinklex.
PharmaClinix was set up by award winning pharmacist, Shashi Gossain who is also a Member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Great Britain, a Member of the Society of Cosmetic Scientists and Director of PharmaClinix Health and Beauty clinic in London. Her 28 years of extensive and detailed research into health and beauty have resulted in this innovative and exclusive range of products which are Clinically Tested, Licensed and Produced in the European Union. The scientific development of her products and natural ingredients means that customers can achieve the best results without doing any damage to their skin, as other skin lightening treatments may do. ‘The extreme and harsh weather conditions in the Asian region make the use of specialised personal care products essential.’ Shashi Gossain said, ‘our region specific formulation and the growing focus towards health and beauty in Sri Lanka over recent years has assured us that we are in the right place at the right time.’
The PharmaClinix range consists of nineteen products, all of which are specifically designed to create solutions to problems such as acne scarring, stretch marks, under eye circles, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation amongst other things, leaving you with a radiant and smooth skin tone.
