PRESS RELEASE

USpharma Reintroduces Cushion GripTM Original Formula to U.S. Market
Professional Strength Thermoplastic Denture Adhesive Returns to Retail !!

MIAMI LAKES, Fla.—January 15, 2019—USpharma Ltd announced today it has
started manufacturing and distributing Cushion Grip, Thermoplastic Denture Adhesive, to
the U.S. market. Since first being introduced in 1950, Cushion Grip was consistently a
favorite consumer product for denture wearers due to its long lasting 4-day secure hold,
and cushioned softness. The product was manufactured and distributed in the U.S. through
2014.

A passionate and loyal fan base kept the Cushion Grip product alive via social media and blogs. YouTubers made videos pleading for the return of Cushion Grip to mass merchandisers and drug store retailers, which lead to a petition being launched on
Change.org to bring the product back with close to 500 signatures. After ceasing
manufacturing operations in 2014, the limited available supply of product drove resellers’
prices on eBay and Amazon to hundreds of dollars per 1 oz tube, but nevertheless, the sales
continued.

Cushion Grip, known for its ability to hold dentures securely four times longer than
ordinary dental cream adhesives, is manufactured at USpharma’s state-of-the-art facility in Florida using thermoplastic polymers that are heat activated and 100% waterproof.
Cushion Grip is packaged in a 1 oz tube, zinc-free, and completely non-toxic. Manesh
Dixit, Ph.D., CEO of USpharma, stated “We are delighted to manufacture and distribute
this iconic brand of denture adhesive in its original formula to the 30 million wearers of
denture plates in the U.S. We have launched online sales through Amazon and are ready
to ship to U.S. retailers.

It is still $499.99 on Amazon.  Please, don't buy it through that paypal link as the patent for this product is dead.  It would be nice if they brought it back on the market however there was no news that Bayer sold this to USPharma

Thanks for your support Alysia.  Actually, USpharma acquired the product manufacturing and distribution rights, including registrations and trademarks from Bayer. See linked press release. :)

I've received mine from Amazon.  It's 1 oz, which is a very small tube for $20.00 but shipping was included.  I'm not sure if that is because I have Prime or not.  I've read some reviews where people have said that over time it hardens to a cement like substance and they had to have the dentist remove it from their dentures so I haven't tried it yet.  Because of that, it must be a much different formula than the Japanese stuff I've been using because after a few days that stuff just lifts off in a clump and I have to reapply.  It's very stretchy as you chew also.  Anyway, I'm sure there's going to be loads of videos on youtube about how to use it and it's properties.  I have a very busy week at work so I can't try it until next weekend on Friday.  Good luck everyone and may they lower the price for this stuff some time soon.
