Ingredients we love

NIACINAMIDE (Vitamin B3)

Niacinamide is also known as Vitamin B3 & plays an important role in maintaining the barrier function of the skin. This barrier protects the skin against pollutants, bacteria & other irritants. Niacinamide stimulates two enzymes, NADH & NADPH. These enzymes are responsible for producing lipids, which are natural emollients for the skin. Lipids keep the skin conditioned, youthful & minimise lines & wrinkles. NADH & NADPH also communicate with the cells and are involved in producing cellular energy. As we age, as with most good things, NADH and NADPH levels start to decline. Niacinamide applied topically has been shown to slow the rate of decline. Think about an oily skin – it doesn’t look as aged as a lipid ‘dry’ skin.

With our barrier working more effectively, conditions like acne, rosacea & inflammatory conditions in the skin can be more effectively managed. B3 will also address an uneven skin tone. Studies have shown it is able to prevent melanin (pigment in our skin) transfer from melanin-producing cells deeper in the skin into melanin-containing cells on the skin’s surface. One of the advantages of Niacinamide is that it can be used long term without side effects, making it a great alternative to Hydroquinone.

Ascorbic Acid (VITAMIN C)

Antioxidant protection of the skin against the ageing effects of UV damage is important in a climate like ours. For many, uneven skin tone & pigmentation is a real concern. When topically applied, Vitamin C acts like a powerful antioxidant & is involved in the synthesis of connective tissue production including collagen. It protects the skin against harmful UV rays, preventing photo damage & lightens & brightens the appearance of the skin.

Retinol (VITAMIN A)

Another antioxidant ingredient that is important for normalising all the cell functions in the skin is Vitamin A. It has the ability to increase density of the dermis while smoothing and refining the texture of the epidermis. It is one of the most powerful ingredients to fight against & reverse the signs of ageing in the skin. It reduces lines & wrinkles, refines pores, reverses UV damage, balances oil production & reduces acne breakout. This makes it an essential ingredient for all skins but some forms of Vitamin A can be very irritating, leading to redness, light sensitivity & flakiness. The acidic forms of Vitamin A that tend to be available on prescription can sometimes cause these unwanted side effects which cause people to stop using Vitamin A before they are seeing the real benefits.

The Science – Our Ingredients

Dermaviduals is world-renowned for manufacturing active skin care systems, using only pure ingredients. Employing ground-breaking technology we have created a range of creams and lotions without using the binding properties of an emulsifier. Emulsifiers can build up within the skin and dissolve skin lipids when it comes into contact with water (eg. via perspiration and general cleansing routines). This in turn can leave the skin compromised.

Active ingredients utilised in the unique dermaviduals delivery system include:

  • Co-Enzyme Q10 • Vitamin A • Vitamin B • Hyaluronic Acid • Vitamin C • Vitamin E • Boswellia • Linseed Oil • Butchers Broom
  • Evening Primrose Oil • CM Glucan • D-Panthenol • Echinacea • Green Tea Extract • Algae Extract • Aloe Vera Extract

Using the best ingredients from around the world, together with the very best in science and innovative research, remains at the heart of what we do at dermaviduals. We believe in customising our products for specific skin conditions, not applying a blanket approach to our formulations. This ensures that our products are unique to your client’s needs.

This method also allows dermaviduals to specialise in the prevention of skin conditions such as:

  • Neurodermatitis • Ichthyosis • Psoriasis • Acne • Couperosis • Rosacea • Dermatitis • Chelitis • Sensitive skin
