Aidance Skincare – An Innovator In Tinea Versicolor Skin Treatment
Interview with Aidance Skincare’s CEO Perry Antelman and Inbound Marketing Specialist Bianca Scartabello.
As you may already know, we at Tinea-Versicolor.net pride ourselves on staying abreast of the latest developments in the treatment of tinea versicolor, but once in a while we come across a remarkable product and company engaged in the fight against this resilient derma-beast and wonder how they could have slipped past our radar.
(See our “actual-customer” product review.)
Aidance Skincare is a small to medium-sized company founded in 2004 and located in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. However, their dedication to discovering and providing innovative and all-natural skincare therapies started long before CEO Perry Antelman founded the company.
According to Perry, “I grew up in a family with a thirst for scientific research. My father, Dr. Marvin Antelman, a widely-published chemist, has dedicated his life to researching the synergy between science and nature, as well as the benefits of natural products.”
In addition to holding three PhDs in his field, Dr. Marvin S. Antelman has penned two encyclopedias and has worked with the pentagon on nuclear submarines. And he was the youngest person ever to be invited to present at the American Chemical Society conference.
According to his son, “Dr. Antelman has many well-known discoveries. His research has led to hundreds of patents, but perhaps his most notable contribution was discovering the unique formulation featured only in Aidance skin products. His innovative mineral technology is at the heart of our [skincare] formulations, and that’s what makes our products so remarkable.”
This innovative mineral technology is what has us at Tinea-Versicolor.net so excited. Aidance Skincare, though relatively small in size at less than 50 employees, has a unique dedication to treating fungal infections like tinea versicolor and is very forward thinking in terms of skincare research. We applaud that vision as these days there doesn’t seem to be much interest in developing skin treatments that combat one of the most resilient of all the tinea infections.
But what’s behind the name Aidance?
According to Bianca Scartabello, Inbound Marketing Specialist at Aidance Skincare, “The term, “Aidance” means to aid, which is a company value. Aidance Skincare, soon to be renamed Aidance Scientific, prides itself on offering products based on proven science and actual customer success. For many of our customers, our formulation is the answer to even the most stubborn skin problems, and we’re glad to be their go-to aid.”
Here is one testimonial from a customer who used Terrasil with great results:
“I just want to start by saying thank you so much! Finally something that actually worked on African American Skin. I had tinea versicolor and was suffering with this for the last 4 to 5 years. I went to numerous dermatologists and was given pricey prescriptions. I finally gave up and tried this. I prayed and prayed because I was tired of wearing makeup to cover the white spots on my chin, cheeks and forehead.
I am a licensed counselor and I was embarrassed to have to look at clients in the face with all these white spots. As soon as this product came (which was very quickly) I started using it. Within 2 weeks my face was even and clear. My husband noticed immediately. To make a long story short I have stopped wearing makeup. I feel so confident again to not have people stare at me because of white spots in my face. This really works…When I read some of the stories I was like “yeah right” this may be a gimmick…but it is NOT. This all-natural product works!”

This activated mineral technology featured in Aidance skin treatments was discovered by Dr. Antelman over 20 years ago and has been improved upon over the years through ongoing research and development.
“My father’s determination and drive are undoubtedly impressive,” said Perry Antelman, “and we continue his tradition of innovation in everything we do today. Our FDA-approved active all-natural ingredients help deliver fast results for your skin problems.”
Marketing Specialist Bianca Scartabello took Perry’s statement further by adding, “In terms of tinea versicolor, Terrasil™ Tinea Treatment MAX is the only skin treatment available that uses our patented Activated Minerals™, a unique blend of silver oxide, zinc oxide, magnesium oxide, and volcanic clay, otherwise known as Bentonite.”
Why are Activated Minerals important?
Prospective users of Terrasil need to understand this because that combination of activated minerals, according to Bianca, “facilitates faster delivery of the active pharmaceutical ingredient [clotrimazole], which significantly enhances Terrasil’s performance. Each of the ingredients that comprise the Activated Mineral [formulation] has specific skin care benefits.”
That last point is important because if you live with skin problems, particularly tinea versicolor, you know that outbreaks come with itching, scaling, discoloration, redness, and general irritation of your skin. These problems need addressing in any treatment for tinea versicolor.
“And our Terrasil™ Tinea Treatment MAX also features the highest quality emollients,” added Bianca. “Jojoba oil is one of the world’s most nutrient-rich and longest lasting moisturizers, but it also helps deliver our active ingredients deeper into the skin to attack the root of the problem.”
Other emollients Aidance has included are natural beeswax, which contains Vitamin A—a skin conditioner and cell-regenerator—and peppermint oil, which soothes sore and itchy skin.
A company with a radical idea: Results!
As stated on the company’s website and on-line profile:
Aidance Skincare provides medicinal skincare solutions for customers and physicians in 150 countries….Aidance is dedicated to offering sophisticated natural skincare solutions that are based on proven science and actual customer success. We strongly believe in sustainable, honest and accountable practices, as well as maximum disclosure of information. Thus, we constantly seek new ways to educate our customers about their skin condition, our ingredients and the effects of each. Ultimately, hype and side effects are not solutions. Call us radical, but what we propose instead is actual results.
Perhaps that is radical—a pharmaceutical company that actually believes in transparency and building its reputation on results, not spin.
“We receive hundreds of testimonials from people who have had life-changing experiences with our products,” Bianca said. “Of course, we all use these products ourselves and have seen the results first-hand. And every member of the company is committed to the positive changes we can make in people’s lives through our formulations. We are proud of all our skincare treatments.”
CEO Perry Andelman adds, “Our scientific discoveries have been tested and proven in laboratories, hospitals, universities, and in patients worldwide. And they are proudly made in the U.S.A.”
In terms of outreach, with their wide variety of products, including anti-fungal, wound care, first aid, acne, and wart removal, Aidance has helped an estimated 350,000 customers since its founding in 2004—and the numbers increase daily as more and more physicians recognize their products’ remarkable results.
“Aspiera’s Terrasil Anti-Fungal Ointment provides an extremely fast and effective option for nail-area fungus, producing visible improvement in 2 weeks. It is a cost effective and safe alternative to oral therapies. In addition, it is very effective against typical tinea by eliminating the fungus in less than a week— significantly faster than other topicals.”
– Dr. Brock Liden, DPM, a nationally-known Ohio podiatrist and researcher.
The future for Aidance.
As for the company’s future, Bianca said, “At Aidance Skincare, we are constantly working towards the next scientific breakthrough. We continue to develop new products for underserved skin problems. We are also moving into brick and mortar retail, drug stores, as well as hospitals and doctors’ offices.”
And as for Terrasil™ Tinea Treatment MAX, we at Tinea-Versicolor.net are currently testing this exciting new tinea versicolor treatment for ourselves, and will publish our findings in the coming weeks.
So stay tuned! There’s more to come on this innovative company and its unique activated mineral tinea treatment.
I would like to personally thank Aidance Skincare’s CEO Perry Antelman, and Inbound Marketing Specialist Bianca Scartabello, for allowing us to interview them for this article. – Tony.
