Sorevna® was founded by J. Adrian Wright, DPM, MS, an experienced doctor with a background in dermatopathology. He attended Lynchburg College obtaining his Bachelor of Science in biomedical science. He later attended Oxford University where he studied organismal biology, authoring two papers detailing concepts in molecular clock theory as well as understanding the nonmonotonic Linearity of science. During this period time, Dr. Wright authored two papers:
Dr. Wright was awarded the Vanauken Fellowship Award for his work in 2006. This achievement laid the for his graduate focus in the field. Dr. Wright was accepted into Harvard University in 2008 and successfully obtained a Master of Science in molecular biology. He became increasingly involved with rapid improvement events and quality matrix studies at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates. In addition, Dr. Wright served on the roster review team, helping pioneer the process, and develop control measures that were utilized in large electronic medical record systems. These initiatives led to the publication of a book on how the roster review process is an effective means of chronic disease management care.
Dr. Wright continued to pursue a career in medicine, obtaining his doctorate and completing a residency in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. For two years, Dr. Wright served as a board member of the Harvard Book Award Scholarship committee and PMR’s Editor-in-Chief. In addition, he received the American Medical Writers Association Award in the spring of 2014 for publishing his work on modifying private medical practices in the nation’s rapidly evolving health care system.
Today Dr. Wright is still actively engaged in the management and care of his patients, while also devoting time to partake in various research initiatives. As the owner of the only FDA-approved pediatric CT imaging device in the northeast, he continues to provide quality treatment for pediatric and adult patients.

At Sorevna®, we understand that it is not enough to simply create a cream that removes the callus. We must also create a cream that addresses the reason why the callus appeared in the first place. The feet and hands are unique to that of the rest of your body or face. This skin, called glabrous skin, does not have hair but has thousands of nerve endings required for balance and sensation. These nerves detect many things including damage, moisture loss, and temperature changes. Many times, a callus will form in response to physical stress on the skin resulting in moisture loss. This stress also causes inflammation; the body’s first response to things it does not like. This inflammation triggers a protective mechanism in the body where the skin thickens, forming a callus. The best example of this is the small callus that forms on the side of your finger from using a writing instrument for extended periods of time. Understanding is the first step to addressing the problem. At Sorevna®, we first started with the callus itself. The human body creates an organic compound called urea through an enzymatic reaction. In our advanced enzymatic therapy foot cream, we utilized this end product of the enzymatic reaction to specifically target the callus. It is well-documented in the clinical literature that urea is a safe and effective method of removing callus. Furthermore, because urea is produced by the human body, allergic reactions are extremely unlikely. Our next step was to soothe the inflamed skin at the level of the callus by restoring the moisture barrier. This was achieved by adding a ceramide complex. Ceramides play a key role in the regulation of the body’s natural skin barrier. The key role played by ceramides in the regulation of the body’s natural skin barrier is also well documented in clinical literature. By introducing a complex of ceramides to the area of the callused skin, we help restore and maintain the skin's natural barrier that protects the body from harmful bacteria, fungus, and moisture loss. Finally, with all the key components in place, we labored to deliver a product that was all-natural. At Sorevna®, we support the skin with a formula derived from nature. Similar to the principles seen in phytotherapy, we believe in the medicinal power of plant-derived products. Removing all unnecessary agents, eliminating harsh preservatives, and selecting only sustainable, environmentally friendly components, we achieved a truly superior product; a product that we know will make you, and your skin, very happy.
The differences between the hands and feet are just as numerous as their similarities. Unlike the feet, the hands are not usually protected by clothing. They are exposed to repeated use of surfactants (soaps), hand sanitizers, and a great range of temperatures. In nature, our hands would combat temperature and elemental changes as well as exposure to pathogens (bacteria, fungus, viruses, and parasites) through a complex regulatory process balanced by skin secretions and immunogenic responses. Now more than ever, we are required to disrupt the body’s natural measures to combat disease by increased the frequency of handwashing and applying harsh alcohol derivatives in hand sanitizers. These agents are effective at removing pathogens but devastate the skin flora (normal bacteria of the skin), disrupt the natural presence of protective proteins, and eradicate most of the protective oils that form our natural moisture barrier. At Sorevna®, we worked to address each of these concerns. The important roles of good bacteria in the gut are well documented in clinical literature but more recent studies also establish a key role of these organisms in normal skin physiology. Remember that all bacteria are not bad. Good bacteria break down certain components so that they are usable by the body. They also fight off bad bacteria, competing with them for available resources. Good bacteria also have a healthy relationship with our immune system. Many newer theories suggest that this relationship helps educate and train components of our immune system so that it is more equipped to distinguish a good guy from a bad guy. When our immune system gets confused, it may target something that is not bad or even part of our own body. This is best evidenced by skin allergies or diseases such as psoriasis. To address this, we have included lactobacillus ferment lysate in our hand creams to replenish some of the byproducts of good skin flora that are lost in daily washing. Dry skin on the hands is the obvious result of moisture loss. Frequent hand washing and the use of astringents found in hand sanitizers can greatly contribute to this by removing the natural oil production. When trying to recreate this natural moisture barrier, it is not enough to simply block moisture loss, but we must also restore any damage to the skin from this moisture loss. On the microscopic level, a small group of fatty acids, called ceramides, hold the skin cells (keratinocytes) together. Using this knowledge, we also incorporated a ceramide complex into our hand creams to further aid in hand restoration. After restoring the natural barrier of the skin and aiding in the probiotic establishment of normal skin flora, we still had the challenge of delivering these agents to the skin in a safe and effective manner. Through a careful screening process, we selected ingredients that were both safe and effective. From broccoli see an oil to exotic derivatives like jojoba oil, we left no stone, or plant rather, unturned. Through a lengthy process of research and development with absolutely no animal testing, we finally arrived at a product that we are sure you will love, and your hands will love it too!
