ADVANCED POLYMER SYSTEMS STARTS SHIPMENT OF EXACT ACNE CLEANSER

 REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Polymer Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: APOS) announced today that it has started shipments to the trade of new EXACT(TM) Acne Cleanser. EXACT Acne Cleanser incorporates salicylic acid in the patented APS Microsponge(R) delivery system and is alcohol free.
 EXACT Cleanser is being introduced to complement EXACT Medicated Cream, APS' recent successful patented entry into the $300 million acne medication field. The EXACT Medicated Cleanser is a logical line extension that will offer consumers a significant advancement in acne treatment products.
 Like EXACT Medication, new EXACT Cleanser gives significant efficacy against acne problems with minimal irritation due to the APS Microsponge delivery system.
 This line extension will improve Advanced Polymer's penetration into the overall acne market. APS' EXACT Medicated Acne Cream ranked 27th out of 210 acne medications listed in the most recent Towne Oller chain drug audit report and its ranking has increased in each reporting period.
 Advanced Polymer Systems develops, manufactures and sells patented Microsponge delivery systems which allow for the controlled release of active ingredients in a programmed manner in the ethical dermatology, cosmetic and personal care areas. Certain of these projects are conducted under development and licensing arrangements with large companies, others as part of joint ventures in which APS is a major participant and a number of projects are exclusive to APS.
