Active concentrates

Dermaviduals® is world-renowned for manufacturing customized advanced skin care systems, using only pure, natural ingredients.  dermaviduals® products NEVER contain Emulsifiers, Parabens or other irritating and potentially toxic agents.

The active ingredients employed in our unique dermaviduals® delivery systems are categorized in:

  • Extracts

These superior natural ingredients are carefully selected from around the world (predominantly Germany) and combined with the newest and most innovative scientific research, producing customized skin solutions that are specific to each and every skin condition.  dermaviduals® ensures that your product is tailored to your unique requirements rather than employing a blanket approach like many conventional dermatological “remedies” existing today.

  • Liposomes

Liposomes are like little bubbles that are able to hold material that is beneficial to the skin and transport it to where it is needed. Using liposomes as a delivery system for the extracts and soothing products that your skin requires is more effective than just applying them topically.  The lipids (fats) that make up the liposome also contain moisture, so when that bubble breaks, the skin also receives extra hydration from the liposome.  Besides delivering moisture to the skin, liposomes also offer a protective barrier, as they trap moisture under the lipid membrane and seal the skin against external substances that would otherwise enter.  

  • Monosubstances

Oils and extracts are often composed of several different substances that bring about many different effects when applied to the skin.  On the other hand, “mono substances” (mono = anything singular) are homogenous substances that are usually produced synthetically with high purity standards.

  • Nanoparticles

Nanoparticles are miniature particles that cannot be seen with the human eye.  Along with aerosol products and dust, they are everywhere. The diameter of a nanoparticle is so microscopic that it is even smaller than the wavelength of visible light. Sunscreens these days no longer appear as white as they used to because nano dispersions of their active ingredients are now used. Controversy has been made over the safety of nanoparticles because if they are blown into the air and then inhaled they could pose a health risk.  Nanoparticles such as these are NEVER used in dermaviduals® cosmetics, and the size of the dry nanoparticles used are well within the safety range.   Fluid nanoparticles, like liposomes, are instrumental in transporting active ingredients and hydrating the skin, posing no risk to the lungs as they cannot be inhaled.  They are able to easily penetrate the outermost layer of the skin and then dissolve into their specific composition. The skin is naturally and constantly exposed to molecules of various size and substances, including table salt, which is SMALLER than 1 nanometer.  It is important to pay attention to the particular substances that you apply to your skin, not focusing only on the size of the particle; for as you can see, table salt is an ion which is a microscopic nanoparticle, yet completely safe.  dermaviduals® employs liquid biodegradable nanoparticles which are encapsulated in a natural ingredient that is found within our stratum corneum, phosphatidycholine.   This nanoparticle opens onto the skin, allowing only the active ingredients to penetrate through the membrane, leaving the nanoparticle itself behind.   

  • Vegetable oils

Because of these active ingredients, dermaviduals® customers quickly experience the correction and prevention of many persistent skin conditions and disorders such as: Neurodermatitis, Ichthyosis, Psoriasis, Acne, Couperosis, Rosacea, Dermatiti, Chelitis, Sensitive skin, Dehydrated skin and premature aging, Aged skin, Sunburns, Dark circles under eyes, Hyper-pigmentation.
