What’s the Wrinkle Cure . . . for Asbestos?
Dr. Nicholas Perricone hit it big with a book, The Wrinkle Cure, and products based on the theory that various irritants cause cellular inflammation, which in turn causes the visible signs of aging. Kim Cattrall, Julia Roberts, and Kyle MacLachlan are acolytes. Turns out the doctor has his own irritants to deal with. His swank skin-care emporium, due to open on Madison Avenue and 67th Street in September, still hasn’t. “It’s a landmark building, what can I say?’’ says Marcie Krempel, vice-president of N.V. Perricone M.D., Ltd. “There were a lot of trivial issues—signs, lighting. Whoever says anything else is being naughty.” We’d heard there were asbestos problems, too. “Well, there was in the basement, but we didn’t even have to remove it. We just gloved it.’’
