The Science – Our Ingredients
Dermaviduals is world-renowned for manufacturing active skin care systems, using only pure ingredients. Employing ground-breaking technology we have created a range of creams and lotions without using the binding properties of an emulsifier. Emulsifiers can build up within the skin and dissolve skin lipids when it comes into contact with water (eg. via perspiration and general cleansing routines). This in turn can leave the skin compromised.
Using the best ingredients from around the world, together with the very best in science and innovative research, remains at the heart of what we do at Dermaviduals. We believe in customising our products for specific skin conditions, not applying a blanket approach to our formulations. This ensures that our products are unique to your client’s needs.
The dermaviduals range contains over 35 different active serums that are encapsulated in liposomes or nanoparticles. These fuse with the barrier layers of the skin enabling penetration of the active ingredients. Once released, these agents permeate through the skin barrier, in a pure manner, providing an accurate and responsive delivery system. dermaviduals also offers a specialty product line for dermatological skin correction.
This method also allows Dermaviduals to specialise in the prevention of skin conditions such as:
Neurodermatitis • Ichthyosis • Psoriasis • Acne • Couperosis • Rosacea • Dermatitis • Chelitis • Sensitive skin • Dehydrated skin and premature ageing • Blemished skin • Aged skin • Sunburn • Scars • Dark circles under eyes • Hyper-pigmentation • Stretch marks
What is Derma Membrane Structure?
DMS is the basic principle behind Dermaviduals. DMS is used as a preventative treatment that aims to maintain the skin barrier in its natural and intact condition. The products contain a composition (DMS) to resemble the membrane structure of the natural skin barrier and so correspond to the principles of corneotherapy.
Like the Stratum Corneum (upper skin layer) of the skin, Dermaviduals products contain:
Composition of DMS Cream
|Phosphatidylcholine (from soybean lecithin)||Phospholipids|
|Ceramides (from yeast)||Ceramides|
|Triglycerides (from coconut oil)||Triglycerides|
|Squalane (from olives)||Squalane|
|Sterols (from shea nut)||Fatty Acids & NMF Cholesterol|
All of which combine to form the skins protective barrier.
The Stratum Corneum looks like a brick wall. The dead horny cells are the bricks and the lipids (oils) between the cells form the mortar. These lipids determine the effectiveness of the protection layer of your skin.
If the skin barrier is disordered, the skin has an undesirable look and feel, and is more susceptible to penetration of foreign substances because of its irritated state. Therefore it is important to maintain the natural skin barrier preventively using creams containing DMS so as to avoid the breakdown of the Stratum Corneum’s protective components.
When the skins protective layer is intact, your skin’s ability to hold its natural hydration will be balanced. Therefore, barrier disorders, which could cause havoc on the skin and its regeneration, are avoided.
Free from nasty chemicals
All Dermaviduals products are free from:
- Preservatives and parabens– may not be tolerated and can cause irritations
- Perfumes – should be restricted to the skin’s surface only and avoided in creams, which penetrate into the skin. They are the Number 1 cause of irritation of the skin
- Mineral oils – may have occlusive effects and therefore affect the natural activity of the skin to produce its own protective substances
- Emulsifiers – may influence the integrity of the skin barrier and cause the loss of natural protective factors when cleansing the skin
- Amines – frequently are accompanying substances of so called anionic emulsifiers and stress the skin especially if they belong to the group of alkanolamines.
- Silicones – frequently accompany substances of products containing emulsifiers and create a superficial smooth feeling on the skin.
Being free of these ingredients allows the products to have a proactive and positive effect on the protection of the acid mantle (the surface or protective layer of your skin), regeneration of the skin and increasing your natural hydration, so as not to cause a breakdown with the skin’s natural defence system and maintaining the homeostasis of the skin.
