Part of DERMA-E's core ethos is being completely transparent about the ingredients they use. They are proud to state all of the ingredients included in their products on all of their packaging and individual product pages.
There are so many facial skin care products. How do you choose the right ones for yourself?
DERMA-E offers a broad range of products to address a wide variety of skin concerns and skin types. To choose the best facial skin care products suited for you, determine what your biggest skin concern is. DERMA-E's products are categorized according to primary skin concerns such as Age Spots, Dark Circles, Sagging Skin and Wrinkles. Additionally, you can select products based upon your skin type, such as Aging/Mature, Dry/Damaged, Combination, Oily/Blemish-Prone or Sensitive.
Can you use DERMA-E products on an infant or child?
While DERMA-E stands by the integrity and safety of all their products, they recommend you consult with your doctor or medical practitioner before you start any treatment on an infant or child. Before starting regular use, they recommend conducting a “patch test” for sensitivity on a small area under the ear below the jaw line.
Do they test on animals or do their products contain animal-derived ingredients?
No, DERMA-E does not test, and have never tested on animals and their skincare formulas do not contain animal by-products of any kind. As such, the entire DERMA E line of products is vegan and cruelty-free. You will find a cruelty-free symbol on all of their boxes and labels.
Are there parabens in DERMA E products?
No, they do not use parabens of any kind to preserve their products. Instead, they have chosen to use alternative preservative systems recognized by the natural health industry.
Do their products contain fragrances?
DERMA E offers a wide variety of products, some of which contain naturally-scented essential oils, some of which contain phthalate-free fragrance blends and some of which are completely fragrance-free and scent free.
Are their products “alcohol-free”?
Most are, however DERMA-E does utilize plant alcohols (otherwise known as fatty alcohols) in a few products as either an emulsifier (facilitates the mixing of ingredients within a formula) or an emollient (helps to soften and lubricate the skin).
Are their products safe?
Yes! DERMA-E formulates every product with ingredients that have been carefully researched and proven safe for topical, external use. Every batch of every product is tested to ensure it is free from microbial contamination. Formulas are also stability tested to ensure they have an effective shelf life.
Can you use your products if I’m pregnant or nursing?
While DERMA-E stands by the integrity and safety of all of their products, they recommend you consult with your doctor or medical practitioner before starting any new routine while you are pregnant or nursing.
Are DERMA-E products “all-natural” and organic?
DERMA E products are designed to be completely effective, completely vegan and completely delightful. Their formulas are made with a high percentage of natural ingredients carefully selected and sourced from quality, conscientious origins. They will elect to formulate with a synthetic ingredient if the natural alternative proves either to be unstable or animal-derived. Additionally, to maintain product integrity, they formulate with mild stabilizing systems that may be synthetic in nature. DERMA E does use certified organic ingredients when possible.
What preservatives does DERMA-E use?
DERMA-E's #1 priority is the safety and efficacy of their products. They use phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin because they have passed challenge tests where other preservatives have failed. Additionally, they are acceptable according to The European Commission (EU), which has stringent requirements regarding the safety and toxicity of ingredients, and Whole Foods Market, as outlined in their Quality Standards for their Premium Body Care products.
Additionally, at DERMA-E they are constantly striving to provide the best quality products that deliver results. They are continually researching new ingredients and stabilizing systems to provide you with formulas that are gentle, safe and effective. In order to do this, a preservative system of some form is essential. They use a very small fraction of 1%, in their formulations. Studies have shown that at a 2.2% concentration, these ingredients were nonirritating and nontoxic.
Do their products expire?
DERMA-E products do not expire, however they do have a ‘Best If Used By’ date that is three years from the date the product was made. After a product has been opened, the shelf life is 12 months. The number printed on the bottom of each product is the batch code – the date that the product was made. The first two numbers represent the year, the second 2 numbers represent the month, and the final number represents a batch. For example, batch code ‘121031’ indicates the product was the 31st batch made on October, 2012. They have also started putting on a ‘Best if Used By’ date on all of their products. This is written in Month/Year form, i.e., 05/15 represents May 2015.
Are there ingredients that are not included on the packaging?
DERMA-E is proud to have full-disclosure labeling, so that all ingredients are listed. For over 30 years, they have 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.
DERMA E didn’t start out in the beauty aisle or the boardroom. Instead, DERMA-E began in a small health food store in Southern California. Their first product was a jar of Vitamin E 12,000 I.U. Moisturizing Cream. People were amazed at the results it had on their skin and word caught on.
Over the years DERMA-E introduced many extraordinary products, each one rooted in their belief that skin health can be visibly improved through the right combination of potent vitamins, wholesome nutrients and exceptional ingredients.
Today DERMA-E has grown to become one of the largest natural facial care brands in the U.S. They attribute their success to honoring their customers with products that promote healthier-looking skin and business ethics that promote a healthier world.
