DeVita Evening Rich Nutritional Moisturizer FAQ's
How fast will I see results with DeVita?
You should start seeing results within 7- 10 days with most of their products. For significant change to be noticed with Hyperpigmentation (Sun Damage Repair Serum, Skin Brightening Serum), you will need patience and at least 8 -10 weeks to start to see results.
Are DeVita products safe for sensitive skin?
DeVita was designed to cater to those with skin sensitivity issues. Dr. DeVita herself suffers with sensitive skin and that is what motivated her to create DeVita Natural Skincare in the first place! So you will never find irritating synthetic fragrances or other harsh chemicals in DeVita. Please always do a recommended patch test to ensure that all products work with your skin type. Test in a small, side area to confirm your success with each product. Your skin is like your finger print particular to only you.
How young can you/should you start using DeVita products?
The skin is considered mature by the age of 28. So starting your skin care regime as early as possible is recommended. Beginning at age 25, they recommend using skin specific treatment products as a preventative measure, twice a year to start (perhaps at spring and fall), increasing as needs arise. They recommend starting a regular cleansing and toning regime twice daily in the early teens, with regular exfoliation (1-2 times per week), acne treatment pads if necessary, followed by their Solar Protective Moisturizer 30 before going outside. Guarding your skin against sun damage is the most important anti-aging action you can take. Of course, along with good external habits, you must also have good internal habits such as getting enough restful sleep, eating fresh organic foods, limiting your sugar, and processed food intake and drinking fresh water all of this is very important to your skin health and general over-all well being.
Do you use NANO Technology?
No none of their product formulations use nanotechnology. In their solar products they use cutting-edge, Non-Nano, uncoated, nearly transparent Micronized Zinc Oxide. It is the most advanced ZnO available. If you are reading old articles on how micronized zinc oxide cannot be nearly transparent etc, you are not up to speed on what is available now they are. That is their job to do the research and stay ahead of the curve so that they can provide you the safest and best of what technology has to offer. Not all science is bad, and not all nature is good (think arsenic and deadly nightshade etc). Their ZnO has an average particle size of 250 nm (nano is considered under 100 nm the difference between Micronized and Nanosized is like the difference between a Million= micro and a Billion= nano). Test studies show that their ZnO can be used to create formulations of greater than 30 SPF and PA greater than 10. It has a critical wavelength of 380 nm, which is further evidence of its ability to perform as a broad, full spectrum sunscreen (UVA/UVB). BUT it is important to note that there are many factors that affect the formulation of sun protection products; the careful selection of the active ingredients, the product form, the type of formulation used and the constituents of that formulation. Specifically, the formulation of a sunscreen product is influenced by a number of specific considerations relating to the efficacy of the actives used. The formulator has to study the solubility of the sunscreen in the vehicle, look for synergy between filters, evaluate the rheological (how the product layers on the skin and creates a film former) and sensorial characteristics of the vehicle and be cognizant of the photo stability of the active ingredients. When all of this is done correctly, it is possible to deliver a safe, effective product at a reasonable cost (exactly as they do here at DeVita!).
Do DeVita products contain parabens?
NO never have, never will. They were one of the first companies to put out a paraben free product line. They were pioneers of the paraben-free concept and, in the beginning, it caused the company to grow slowly as various distribution channels were reluctant to take the risk of not having traditional preservative poisons in the products. They started to realize as more information became available, that they had created a process that would cause others to change their ways as well. They see many companies now changing their formulas to exclude parabens, but they have always known that parabens were not their friends! Parabens are not the only things they do not choose to include they are always free from synthetic fragrances, dyes, petrochemicals, etc.
Can I layer products together?
Yes you can layer up to three treatment products. Start from thinnest to thickest. As an example you would start with their Hyaluronic SeruGel first, then Sun Damage Repair Serum and finish with Skin Brightening Serum. Just remember to layer thinnest to thickest! Please always do a recommended patch test to ensure that all products work together with your skin type. Test in a small, side area to confirm your success with each product. Your skin is like your finger print particular to only you.
Are DeVita products tested on animals?
Absolutely not. DeVita is committed to protecting animals (everyone who works here is a huge animal lover they are like their children!). They are PETA certified; also members of LEAPING BUNNY, and Choose Cruelty Free (AU). For this reason, no finished product or products in the developing stage are ever tested using animals (only people!). They also work only with ingredient suppliers are also willing to become PETA certified. The safe-use of all DeVita products is ensured by having a thorough understanding of ingredients used in their products (based on previous use, the ingredients own chemistry/history, etc). They also carry out real life tests on human volunteers to further ensure the safe use of all their products.
Are DeVita products vegan?
Yes DeVita is a vegan line you will not find any animal renderings or byproducts in any of their products (many mainstream cosmetics contain large amounts of animal renderings which are used as fillers ack!). Nor will you find carmine colorant from the cochineal beetle. You wont find any shark cartilage derived Squalene (They use only olive derived Squalane), or rooster comb derived Hyaluronic acid (They use only HA that is probiotically derived through a process of bio-fermentation using potatoes as a primary catalyst source). They use only vegan safe sources for all their wonderful ingredients.
What is the difference between Vegan and Vegetarian?
Vegetarian is a blanket term used to describe a person who does not consume meat, poultry, fish, or seafood. It generally implies someone who has less dietary restrictions than a vegan. Vegetarians can consume eggs, dairy products and honey etc Vegan is the strictest sub-category of vegetarians. Vegans do not consume any animal products or by-products. Some go as far as not even consuming honey and yeast. Others do not wear any clothing made from animal products.
Is DeVita gluten free?
DeVita is considered a Gluten Sensitive Safe product line as they use only the pure, non-synthetically extracted Vitamin E, Wheat amino acids etc. What has to be understood is that this chemistry is very precise. The gluten is isolated first and only the pure Vitamin E is extracted the vitamin and the gluten come from two different parts of the whole. They never use whole Wheat Germ Oil in any of their formulas they use only the pure, non-synthetically extracted Vitamin E and everything they work with is at the amino acid level. Because of this they are considered a Gluten Sensitive Safe line. Of course, as with any new product, customers should always do a patch test first to see if there is a compatibility issue. They never expect anyone to have a problem, but everyones skin is special and although DeVita is designed to cater to those with skin sensitivity issues, it is always best to be safe as your skin is just like your finger prints particular only to you.
Does DeVita use GMO ingredients?
No. They do not believe in using GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms), which are the result of laboratory processes which artificially insert foreign genes into the DNA of food crops or animals. Those genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. Although banned by food manufacturers in Europe and elsewhere, the FDA does not require any safety evaluations. Most Americans say they would not eat GMOs if labeled, but the U.S. does not require labeling. Testing of GMOs have shown they are not safe, but they have been in the food supply since 1996 and are now present in the vast majority of processed foods in the US. GMOs are affecting four major crops at this time. They are: Corn, Canola, Cotton and Soy (sugar beets are a new concern). DeVita does not use any of the first three (Corn, Canola, Cotton), and they use only non-GMO soy beans for their lecithin. To date, GMOs remain a very critical dietary concern, not a cosmetic concern; however, they reject any use of GMOs (internal or external) as they feel they are an assault against nature, and against everything they believe in. To find out more about GMOs, please visit responsible technology.org.
How long can I keep a product once it is opened?
A specific symbol now appears on all DeVita packaging (outer box, tubes) and lets you know how long you can use your product after opening. This PAO (period after opening) is indicated within an open jar illustration that has a number inside followed by the letter M. For example, 24M corresponds to 24 months. This means that the product should be used within two years after opening. However, it is very important that products be stored with their caps closed tight, preferably away from heat and light.
Do I need to keep products in fridge?
No, however, it is very important that products be stored with their caps closed tight, preferably away from heat and light.
Are the containers recyclable?
Yes Their boxes are made from recycled paper - recycle as paper. Their tubes are PET number 2 non-leaching recyclable plastic from Canada recycle as number 2 plastic. Their glass bottles are glass recyclable recycle with general glass the frosted coloring harmlessly melts off during the recycle process. The over caps, pumps, sprayers etc are number 6 polystyrene (which is recyclable, just not through mainstream channels. These items will be qualified for return under the DeVita Dividends program please see details under their DeVita Green section).
What does Hyaluronic Acid do and how does it work?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is one of the most hydrophilic (water-loving!) molecules in nature, which is why it is often referred to as natures moisturizer. DeVitas oil-free SeruGel will quench thirsty skin cells by helping to deliver maximum amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (a 65% solution!) to the skin using their penetrating organic aloe vera delivery system. When we are young, their bodies produce mass amounts of this wonderful stuff thats why babies have those great plump, pinchable cheeks they are loaded with HA! However, as with everything else, their HA production slows way down as we age. Adding it back in to your regime will really help transform your skin by boosting the skin's elasticity and suppleness, encouraging collagen and elastin production and minimizing the look of lines and wrinkles by helping to plump-up the skin (pinchable cheeks!). If you want to truly transform your skin, give this product a try in a word its amazing.
Where does the Hyaluronic acid come from?
Our Hyaluronic SeruGel 65% solution contains 100% Hyaluronic acid (in a 65% solution) that is probiotically derived through the process of bio-fermentation. Potatoes are used as a primary catalyst source. DeVita is a vegan skin care line and never uses animal derived ingredients. Why is it blue? The beautiful blue color comes from their proprietary blend of marine peptides and natural seaweeds, which are important anti-aging support elements to their hydrating Hyaluronic SeruGel formula. There are never any colors added to DeVita products product colors occur naturally based on ingredients used.
