Sports Superstar Teams Up With NEXGEL to Provide Turf Burn Relief


LANGHORNE, PANEXGEL, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXGL, NXGLW) announced this week it has partnered with former Major League Lacrosse (MLL) player and founder of The Face-off Academy, Greg “The Beast” Gurenlian, to provide athletes with a better treatment for turf burn through the use of NEXGEL’s Turfguard, a unique hydrogel dressing for soothing turf burn and protecting athletic wounds.

Adam Levy, CEO of NEXGEL, said, “We are thrilled to partner with Greg and his team to address the harmful effects of turf burn including, pain, infection and long-term scarring. We look forward to working with Greg and supporting him and other athletes on and off the field with Turfguard for topical recovery. NEXGEL aims to help all athletes through our gentle skin patches for treatment and protection.”

“I’ve been playing lacrosse for over 20 years and have had more than my fair share of turf burn,” said Greg Gurenlian, Founder of The Face-off Academy. “As a faceoff man, we are constantly taking a beating on our feet and off of it. I don’t know a single athlete that hasn’t dealt with turf burn at some point in their careers. The pain is one thing but dealing with the infections and long-term scarring is a huge concern. Turfguard is a medical grade response to these burns.”

Turfguard’s FDA cleared patches maintain a moist wound environment and aid in removing non-viable tissues from the wound. The patches do not pull on delicate, new or healing skin and provide an instant cooling relief to the affected area. Manufactured out of the Company’s facility in Langhorne, Pa., Turfguard is available for purchase on
