Key Ingredients: Astaxanthin
Harvested from micro-algae and responsible for the pink color of salmon, flamingos, shrimp and lobster, astaxanthin is the most potent antioxidant yet discovered. This amazing natural ingredient has been found to be 500 times more powerful than vitamin E in neutralizing free radicals and 1000 times more effective than both beta-carotene and lutein in protecting the skin from exposure to UV light. Helping to prevent and reduce the visible signs of aging, diminish the look of skin irregularities, soothe irritation, normalize skin function and enhance the skin’s defensive cells, astaxanthin is a key ingredient in Derma-E’s Age-Defying products.
Key Ingredients: Pycnogenol
A remarkable antioxidant extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine, Pycnogenol has been shown to be 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 20 times more effective than Vitamin C in neutralizing free radicals that cause age damage to the skin. Therefore, this powerful antioxidant helps fight and reduce the visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Pycnogenol also helps stabilize the capillary system and increase skin’s resistance to irritation making it an ideal ingredient for those who have red, easily irritated, sensitive skin or who suffer from the symptoms of rosacea and other inflammatory skin conditions. Additionally, Pycnogenol works to improve circulation, therefore helping to reduce puffiness or swelling.
Because of Pycnogenol’s various benefits to skin including anti-aging, calming and supporting red, easily irritated, sensitive skin, and helping improve circulation, you will find this unique antioxidant in our Soothing and Age-Defying lines, eye crèmes, hand and body lotions and treatment products such as our Intensive Therapy Foot Crème.
Facial Care: Cleanse
Begin your skin care routine with one of Derma-E's pH balanced cleansers that has been formulated specifically for facial care. Derma-E's facial cleansers contain nourishing natural ingredients so that you can improve your skin's condition while you also remove dirt, oil, makeup, dead skin cells and the effects of everyday pollution. Gentler on your face than soap, each of Derma-E's facial cleansers leave skin clean and ready for your favorite toner and moisturizer.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
In your 30’s, you may start to notice fine lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead. You may also start to notice that your skin is becoming drier accentuating these lines in the skin. Derma-E's hydrating formulas deliver maximum moisture to reduce the look of fine lines and improve skin tone, texture and radiance. With the ultra-hydrating power of Hyaluronic Acid combined with beneficial antioxidants, vitamins and botanicals, these formulas plump and restore moisture for soft, smooth skin and a healthy glow.
Topical antioxidants are also important for optimizing skin health, diminishing existing wrinkles and preventing the formation of new wrinkles. You will find antioxidants included in all of Derma-E's formulations designed to fight aging and wrinkles.
The best and strongest antioxidants help to defend the skin from damage and prevent the look of wrinkles when used on a regular basis. Derma-E's Age-Defying products contain two of the most powerful antioxidants yet discovered for helping to maintain youthful skin. Astaxanthin is a super-antioxidant that is 500 times more powerful than vitamin E (the original antioxidant), and Pycnogenol is 50 times as strong as vitamin E in neutralizing free radicals. Look for these two ingredients together in Derma-E's Age-Defying products that are ideal for refining skin irregularities, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and preventing further damage.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Where does Derma-E obtain its ingredients?
Derma-E Natural Bodycare utilizes only the finest ingredients and sources these on the world market in order to ensure they receive the best ingredients available anywhere. Additionally, you may notice that Derma-E invests in registered and proprietary ingredients, as these are sold by companies who substantiate their ingredient’s effectiveness with research. It also means that when Derma-E orders a registered ingredient, they receive it in a standardized form, and thus there is more consistency from batch to batch with the final products they manufacture.
Does Derma-E test on animals or do their products contain animal-derived ingredients?
Derma-E adheres to a strict Cruelty-Free Policy. Derma-E does not approve of animal testing. Derma-E does not test their products or ingredients on animals, nor incorporate animal by-products as ingredients into any of their skin care formulations.
Do Derma-E’s products contain fragrances?
While some of Derma-E's products are fragrance-free, others contain essential oils that can be therapeutically effective, but also lend a unique fragrance to the product. Essential oils are natural and suited for most skin types. Derma-E does not use perfumes, unnatural scents or harsh chemicals.
Are there parabens in Derma-E’s products?
The paraben system of preserving personal care products is one of the most common methods used in the industry today. As some question has been raised recently within the medical community about whether parabens should continue to be used, Derma-E Natural Bodycare has chosen to use alternative preservative systems recognized by the natural health industry as safe and effective.
Do Derma-E products contain sunscreen?
Based on the scientific research, Derma-E believes that antioxidants are essential and effective as sun protection. Derma-E chose to enhance their products with significant amounts of antioxidants such as Astaxanthin, Ester-C, Green Tea Extract, and Pycnogenol which have been shown to naturally help protect and fortify the skin, helping the skin to resist the damaging effects of moderate amounts of sun exposure. However, for those who prefer a sunscreen product or those who spend extended amounts of time in the sun, Derma-E now offers an antioxidant-enriched sunscreen moisturizer.
Are Derma-E products “alcohol free”?
Derma-E Natural Bodycare utilizes plant alcohols in a few of their products, and this ingredient serves as an emulsifier that facilitates the mixing of ingredients within the formula. Derma-E does NOT use isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, because of its tendency to dry the skin.
Derma-E products are cheaper than department store brands I use. Does this mean they are of lesser quality?
Derma-E has always distributed their products through health food stores rather than departments stores. As the philosophy behind the development of the health food industry was to provide a quality product, with minimal packaging and at reasonable pricing, Derma-E has always, and continues to this day, to ascribe to this same philosophy. Derma-E has therefore been manufacturing quality products for many years and has over 30 years expertise within the natural skin care industry.
What Derma-E does NOT do that adds to the cost of products purchased in department stores is to spend large sums of money on TV and fashion magazine advertising, expensive types of packaging, and the booths, merchandising materials and employees you see in each department store. All these are ‘hidden costs’ that companies must spend to promote their products, and so to recoup that expenditure, the price of the product goes up.
You can be assured that Derma-E continues to make top quality products backed by the same type of expertise, research and technology that is available to other reputable brands. What sets Derma-E apart is their focus on research-determined, optimal concentrations of active ingredients and super antioxidants, no fillers, and no ingredients with ‘made up’ names – just honest, effective products to give you healthy skin, which in turn is beautiful skin.
How can I be sure Derma-E products are effective?
Derma-E Natural Bodycare starts with scientific research and studies on all potential ingredients. Studies must demonstrate that specific ingredients are effective when applied topically to the skin. When a product formula is decided upon, the ingredients are sourced on the world market and only the very best quality ingredients are used. They must be free from radiation, pesticide residues, and microbial contamination. Each product is then carefully formulated with an effective amount of these active ingredients. These are then blended with effective carrier elements that transfer the benefits of key ingredients directly to your skin. Once formulated, all products are tested for effectiveness and safety on live human volunteers before being sold to consumers.
Are Derma-E products safe?
Derma-E formulates every product with ingredients that have been carefully researched, and are safe and effective for topical, external use. Every batch of every product is tested to ensure it is free from microbial contamination. Products are also given stability tests to make sure they have an effective shelf life in order that they reach Derma-E consumers in the very best condition.
Derma-E maintains a watchful eye on current medical studies and takes steps to immediately research potential health concerns that occasionally surface regarding common topical ingredients. If there is any cause for concern, Derma-E immediately seeks a replacement ingredient and reformulates the product utilizing a healthier, safer alternative.
Is there product information that is not included on the packaging?
Unlike some companies, Derma-E has full-disclosure labeling, so all ingredients are listed. For over 20 years, Derma-E has taken great pride in the quality of their natural ingredients, and in formulating products that are safe for consumers to use. What you read on the label is actually in the product, and just as importantly, what is in the product is always on the label.
I bought two jars of the same product. Why are they different colors?
Derma-E uses natural ingredients and sometimes herbs or botanicals have slightly different characteristics such as color, depending upon the source and where those ingredients were grown. As a result, Derma-E products sometimes vary in color from batch to batch. You can be assured that Derma-E tests each batch to ensure all meet the effectiveness level required of that product, but they do not add color just to ensure visual continuity. Derma-E feels that effectiveness of their products is paramount, and they continually make efforts to ensure you get the very best product possible.
What should I do if I am sensitive to most skin care products?
If you are using any skin care product for the first time, Derma-E suggests you test a small amount on the inside of your arm or underneath the angle of your jaw line to eliminate the possibility of an allergic reaction or individual sensitivity. Allow at least 24 hours to pass. If no reaction has occurred, the product should be safe for you to use.
When will I see results?
Results vary depending on the product, skin condition and your skin type. Certain products will deliver results immediately, like Derma-E's Microdermabrasion Scrub. Many skin care products will take approximately 3-4 weeks as your skin goes through one complete regeneration cycle. Treatment Products may take between 6-8 weeks for significant results to occur. The best way to maximize results is with regular usage: twice a day, everyday.
