BOTHELL, Wash. and ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., March 20 -- Helix BioMedix, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: (HXBM.OB), a developer of bioactive peptides, and Grant Industries, a privately held developer, manufacturer and marketer of cosmetic, textile, and performance specialty chemicals, today announced the successful results of a human panel test for Grant's new proprietary acne blend for use in over-the-counter acne products. The acne solution, Granactive(TM), combines Helix BioMedix's proprietary Oligopeptide- 10 with salicylic acid and Grant's Invisiskin(TM), an ingredient used to enhance delivery of bioactive compounds

The panel test compared a formulation containing Granactive(TM) with Oligopeptide-10 to a market leading benzoyl peroxide based product in treating Grade 3 (moderate) or greater acne conditions. Results of the panel test showed that treatment with Granactive(TM) was clearly superior in reducing the number of comedone (non-inflammatory) lesions at each evaluation. In addition, Granactive(TM) treatment resulted in significantly fewer comedones after only 7 days of use indicating efficacy that was not only superior but also more rapid. Counts of other lesion types associated with the condition of acne (papules, pustules, and cysts) corroborated the comedone data. Irritation decreased throughout the six week evaluation with both treatments, and these scores were significantly reduced at days 28 and 42 with the Granactive(TM) formulation.

Paul Granatell, Executive Director of Grant Industries, commented, "The results of the human panel test of our new anti-acne blend which contains Helix BioMedix's Oligopeptide-10 exceeded our expectations. The U.S. market for anti-acne products sold over the counter is estimated at $488 million and we believe there is a significant opportunity for product enhancements. At Grant Industries, selling quality products and providing quality service to our clients is key and we are very excited to market this new improved anti- acne formulation to our cosmetic company customers. We also look forward to continuing to work with Helix BioMedix to help address the growing demand for value added ingredients."

R. Stephen Beatty, President and Chief Executive Officer of Helix BioMedix, added, "We are very excited to be working with Grant Industries. Grant has relationships with many major cosmetic companies and we see significant opportunities for the incorporation of Oligopeptide-10, not only in over-the-counter acne products, but in a range of skin care lines. As the panel test demonstrated, the inclusion of Oligopeptide-10 in Grant's anti-acne solution has produced a significant benefit. We look forward to bringing high quality cosmetic ingredients to the marketplace in collaboration with Grant and believe there is the potential to see products launched and revenues received by Helix BioMedix before the end of 2006."
