There are so many skincare lines out there - why choose this one?
Dermaviduals® is the number one best selling skincare line in the clinic. They are the clinics first choice for skin care and skin protection.
Dermaviduals® creams resemble the structure and composition of the natural skin barrier. TEWL (Trans-epidermal water loss) is high in a barrier disordered skin, as shown in the below image.
Any preventative or restorative skin treatment should aim to maintain or replenish the skin barrier (bilayers) to its natural and intact condition as much as possible. This can be achieved with Dermaviduals® creams. TEWL will be greatly minimised and external irritants are less able to penetrate the skin barrier defence systems. To put it more simply - your skin will be less reactive; less dehydrated; less prone to premature ageing; and acne flare ups can be minimised.
What do Dermaviduals® products contain?
Much like the stratum corneum of the skin, Dermaviduals products contain:
Specific actives unique to your skin concerns, blended by your skin treatment therapist at RSC
What do Dermaviduals® products not contain?
Free of emulsifiers
Free of preservatives
Free of perfumes
Free of mineral oils
Free of silicones
Free of amines
What makes Dermaviduals® so great is that they do not contain emulsifiers. Emulsifiers may build up in the skin and dissolve skin lipids when the skin comes into contact with water - so anytime you wash your face or hop into the shower, you may be contributing to your barrier impairment. This is called the wash-out effect.
Is the brand natural? I hear this from time to time in clinic. Dermaviduals® plant based ingredients are sourced where possible, from pesticide free farms and manufactured using the highest standards in an aseptic laboratory. By no means do they claim to be organic however the purest form of each ingredient is used, all of which hold physiological properties and benefits to always work with restoring and repairing the skin barrier. Dermaviduals® is formulated free from preservatives, colours, fragrance, silicones, mineral oils and emulsifiers making it one of the cleanest product ranges available.
It's also worth noting, that Dermaviduals® DON’T believe in testing on animals. They're proud to say that we’ve never tested on animals and definitely never will in the future! Also, all products are pregnancy safe, apart from Treatment Gel which contains salicylic acid.
