Why use dermidentical ingredients? And what does ‘DermIdentical’ mean for your skin?
DermIdentical (or skin identical) ingredients are compounds found naturally in your skin. Our creams were formulated to contain an array of Dermidentical ingredients to help nourish, replenish, protect, moisturize and accelerate the skins own regeneration process. Our aim was to mimic the composition of the skin in our creams hence supplying the skin all the necessary building blocks it requires to produce young new skin cells, to maintain skin barrier function and to keep the skin adequately moisturized.
In addition to DermIdentical ingredients our entire range also features key breakthrough technologies that deliver unparalleled results and satisfaction such as patented apple stem cell extracts, cosmetic Peptide Complexes, microencapsulated Retinol, stabilized Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Niacinamide, White tea extract, Lipoic Acid, Carnosine, Adenosine, low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, Glycolic Acid (AHA), antioxidants and natural moisturizers. Unlike regular cosmetics our premium quality professional strength cosmeceutical products deliver high strength, potent and proven key ingredients designed to have a more pronounced effect on your skin thus delivering unparalleled results.
The cell communicating key ingredients work synergistically with the dermidentical ingredients to support certain components of the skin matrix such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Antioxidants and anti-glycation peptides protect the skin from the damaging effects of oxidation and glycation while white tea extract protect the collagen and elastin thus maintaining the skin’s structural matrix.
This extensive combination of ingredients addresses all the different signs of aging so improves the appearance, texture and tone of your skin.
We only use the most effective form of each ingredient at its most active concentration.
For example we use the superior all trans retinol form of Vitamin A instead of the cheaper and ineffective retinyl palmitate form which if often inappropriately labelled as retinol. Our retinol is also encapsulated inside tiny microspheres which not only protect it from oxidation thus extending its shelf life but also controls the release of retinol which reduces any irritation. We also use the more effective form of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid instead of regular hyaluronic acid which has been shown not to absorb through the skin. We also have sourced a standardized white tea extract containing 98% polyphenols whereas most suppliers could not tell us what amount of polyphenols was in their extract.
With each key ingredient there is an effective concentration range it should be used at, which can vary considerably. We aim to use the maximum amount that is safe and non-irritating to maximize the effectiveness of our products.
We only source the best quality raw materials from reputable suppliers.
Many of the ingredients we use are pharmaceutical grade purchased from manufacturers who supply to the pharmaceutical industry. Where pharamaceutical grade ingredients are not available we only purchase cosmetic grade material through reputable suppliers that supply the cosmeceutical industry.
Our philosophy: if we wouldn’t use it on our skin, we wouldn’t expect you to use it either.
We avoid the use of many chemicals such as propylene glycol, parafins, alcohol, parabens, sulphates, PEG’s, fragrances, silicones, solvents, hormone disrupters, gluten, dairy, to name but a few.
We made a conscious attempt to keep the number of inactive cream base ingredients to a minimum. We do not want unnecessary chemicals in our range being absorbed through your skin.
Have you ever looked at the ingredient label on some popular face creams? Out of the 30 or so ingredients listed usually only a handful of them are essential ingredients for the skin and the rest comprise of inactive cream base fillers. We keep these non-essential ingredients to an absolute minimum with the majority of ingredients on our list being essential for the skin.
We aim to formulate soft and luxurious creams that leave no greasy residue yet leave your skin feeling fresh and moisturized and are suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
There is no animal testing on any of our products. We test them all ourselves first and once we are happy with them we test them on the wider community for feedback before releasing them to the market.
We also insist on small batch production at our lab here in Australia to ensure the freshness and thus stability and potency of our products.
