HARBIN, China, April 19 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- China Sky One Medical, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CSKI), one of the leading producers and distributors for external-Chinese medicine in China, has announced that its Research & Development department has discovered a breakthrough method to lower the manufacturing cost of the Slim Patch by 37% and increase the effectiveness of the product by approximately 15%.

"The Slim Patch is safe, effective and extremely popular among consumers," stated Dr. Liu Yan-Qing, Chief Executive Officer and President of China Sky One Medical, Inc. "Obesity is a major problem worldwide. The Slim Patch product had a 65% effectiveness rate, which is now up to approximately 80%, which we believe is high compared to other weight loss products worldwide."

The Slim Patch contains rare extracts naturally found in Chinese herbal plants. These ingredients are highly permeable and are easily absorbed by the skin to lower fat deposits. The patch has been proven to reduce body weight quickly, safely and naturally. The Company has decreased the manufacturing cost of the Slim Patch by using a new, less expensive and more effective trans-dermal component. This component can enhance the skin's absorption of the herbal ingredients which in turn enhances the efficacy of the Slim Patch.

The Science and Technology Office of Heilongjiang Province invited experts to evaluate CSKI's breakthrough method of lowering the manufacturing cost and improving the effectiveness of the Slim Patch. Experts analyzed test data and conducted spot testing on both animals and humans, and concluded that the method was effective.

Takasima has commenced its efforts to market CSKI's Slim Patch product line in Malaysia under a strategic marketing agreement. The Slim Patch is a weight loss product that is currently sold in China under the "Tian Di Ren" brand. The Slim Patch is being repackaged and sold in Malaysia under the "Takasima" brand name. CSKI Management anticipates that efficacy improved slim patch can promote patch sales of Takasima and speed up his introduction of other patches such as reduce waistline patch, hypertension patch.
