What are Dermidentical ingredients?
DermIdentical (or skin identical) ingredients are compounds found naturally in your skin. 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. Our creams contain an array of Dermidentical ingredients to help nourish, replenish, protect, moisturize and accelerate the skins own regeneration process.
In addition to DermIdentical ingredients our entire product range also features a comprehensive range of clinically proven key ingredients that deliver unparalleled results such as patented liposomal apple stem cell extract, cosmetic Peptide Complexes, microencapsulated Retinol, stabilized Vitamin C, Vitamin E, a liposomal Niacinamide, Dexpanthanol, Folic acid and Adenosine complex; Lipoic Acid, Carnosine, low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, Glycolic Acid (AHA), antioxidants and natural moisturizers.
These 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. In addition antioxidants and anti-glycation peptides protect the skin from the damaging effects of oxidation and glycation while others help maintain adequate moisture within the skin. This extensive combination of ingredients combats all seven signs of skin aging so improves the appearance, texture and tone of your skin.
Simple Skin Care
Our formulations contain a comprehensive array of all these ingredients in a single product at effective professional strength concentrations which allowed us to develop a simple daily skin care ritual requiring only 3 products a day. No complex, time consuming multiple product applications, just simply cleanse and then apply your cream of choice morning and night. Other brands would require at least three creams in a single application to cover all the ingredients found in one of ours.
Enhanced Delivery System
All the best ingredients still will not work if they are not delivered deep into the skin where they are needed. Small fat soluble ingredients absorb well on their own however larger water soluble ingredients need some help to be effectively absorbed which is why we developed and utilize advanced delivery systems such as liposomes and microencapsulation to ensure that the ingredients penetrate deep into the skin to where they are required.
Large ingredients such as regular Hyaluronic acid will not absorb through the skin as it is too big which is why we only use low molecular weight Hyaluronic acid which has been clinically proven to absorb and thus is more effective.
We also use a number of the latest generation cosmetic peptides which have a fatty acid attached to them to help them absorb through the skin and thus increase their effectiveness.
Any cream is only as good as what you can absorb which is often overlooked by other companies.
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 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.
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 ethical manufacturers who supply to the pharmaceutical industry. Where pharamaceutical grade ingredients are not available we only purchase cosmetic grade material through reputable and responsible 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 which are known or suspected to be harmful or known to cause irritation such as propylene glycol, parafins, alcohol, parabens, sulphates, PEG’s, fragrances, silicones, solvents, hormone disrupters, gluten, dairy, to name but a few.
We also made a conscious attempt to minimize the chemical load of our creams by keeping the number of inactive chemicals that offer no benefit to the skin (such as preservatives, thickeners, etc) to a minimum while ensuring the majority of ingredients nourish the skin. The majority of inactives we use were chosen because they are too large to be absorbed by the skin as 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 very few 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.
