WE ARE WHAT WE PUT ON OUR SKIN
Our skin absorbs 60% of whatever is applied to it, in the form of water, vapor, airborne pollutants, toxins, dust and dirt. Because the skin absorbs from the surface into the deeper more sensitive tissues, we must avoid exposure to toxic, damaging substances, which harm the skin as well as predispose us to pre-cancerous conditions.
The goal is to nourish and protect the skin with natural, biologically active ingredients to support healthy skin and reduce the damage caused by a harsh environment.
Skin also serves as a release of waste in the form of perspiration and odor. What we put into our body also is released through our pores as a way for the body to detoxify itself. Applying topical lotions, sunscreens, and other products that clog pores can actually inhibit the body’s ability to purge toxins.
Industrial chemicals are basic ingredients in nonorganic skin care products. Many over-the-counter skincare products contain carcinogens, hormonal mimickers & blockers, pesticides, reproductive toxins, endocrine disruptors, plasticizers, degreasers, and surfactants. It is important to read labels carefully and know your ingredients.
There currently exist no safety testing for skin care and cosmetics in the US. Essentially, the industry is left to police itself. The long term effects of toxic ingredients pose a health hazard that is difficult to trace. In 2009, the Mount Sinai Children’s Environmental Health Study published findings linking plasticizers called phthalates and low birth weight of newborn babies. They named fragrance as a possible culprit.
Because fragrances are considered trade secrets, the FDA does not require a listing of their ingredients. When a company wants to include toxic ingredients in products, they can do so by including it in the “fragrances”. Why is this flagrant violation of FDA guidelines allowed? Powerful lobbyists have convinced lawmakers that if cosmetic and perfume manufactures fragrance ingredients were made public, it would diminish their competitive advantage. Thus, they are classified as trade secrets, no monitoring is done, and manufacturers are allowed to include hidden ingredient they choose into the fragrance formula. Using this legal loophole, toxins like parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, alcohol, oils and waxes may be included without the consumer’s knowledge.
Eating organic or knowing the source of your food is a great way to get maximum effect of nutrients for a healthy lifestyle, but the same benefit does not apply for skin care product ingredients. Many skin care products boast of natural vitamins, plants, vegetable oils and flowers that sound wonderfully healthy, but are of limited value.
Most naturally occurring oils are very dense and require large amounts of alcohols to thin to a usable solution, thus accelerating dehydration and irritation and thus defeating any perceived benefit. Vitamin E is a great anti-oxidant, but only if ingested. With skin care products, the desired goal is effectiveness and consistent efficacy. Quality synthetic ingredients allow control, consistency and effectiveness that is not achievable in wholly natural ingredient formulations.
POWERFUL INGREDIENTS = POWERFUL RESULTS
Listed below are ingredients contained in Dermagenics moisturizers. They are universally-acknowledged (by anti-aging physicians and formulating biochemists) as the most powerful skin cell regenerative, anti-oxidant and anti-aging ingredients currently known. Many premium skin care products have some of these, only Dermagenics contains all of them.
Every ingredient that goes into Dermagenics has a specific task to heal the skin and is vetted for its safety. Whether it’s delivering crucial moisture, encouraging resilience, improving cell regeneration, or adding natural protein stimulants, each ingredient is carefully selected for its unique restorative properties with special consideration of how it affects other ingredients in the formulation.
PEPTIDES Peptides stimulate extracellular matrix synthesis, particularly collagen and elastin. Collagen regeneration is skin renewal. Elastin production gives the skin a supple, smooth and flexible texture. Dermagenics uses patented Hexapeptide-9, an advanced chain of nine amino acids. Regarded as the most advanced peptide available, this powerful amino acid group accelerates the production of healthy cell regeneration and is instrumental in reversing the effects of aging skin. However, it only works when delivered to the epidermal/dermal junction. It has limited topical value.
SODIUM HYALURONATE (Hyaluronic Acid) Sodium Hyaluronate can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture. When delivered to the epidermal/dermal layer, the accumulation of hydration actually pushes wrinkles outward, relieving the stress of the skin crease caused by wrinkles and allowing a more relaxed, youthful skin tone. It also collects moisture from the air to continually hydrate the skin throughout the day, keeping skin healthy and supple.
ARTEMIA EXTRACT Derived from marine plankton, Artemia Extract acts as a cell energizer. Working in concert with peptides, it energizers and intensifies protein synthesis and stimulates production of collagen and elastin. Artemia Extract is the catalyst for unlocking peptides’ effectiveness and is an essential ingredient in Dermagenics transdermal penetration technology.
SQUALANE Derived from a plant source, Squalane nourishes the skin by maintaining the balance of moisture and nutrients. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, helping skin to maintain its supple appearance.
ALLANTOIN is a superior anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant. It helps skin heal quickly and helps bind moisture to the skin. Exceptionally regenerative for burns, wounds and scars.
PHOSPHOLIPIDS A building block of cell membrane regeneration, Phospholipids energize & regenerate cellular repair.
JOJOBA is a natural emollient that softens the skin’s surface. It is an all-natural ingredient that is effective in transforming dry, damaged and rough skin at the top, or cornified, layer of the skin.
GREEN TEA An exceptional anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-oxidant, Green Tea is vital to the regeneration of damaged skin, especially skin damaged by radiation, chemotherapy and surgical procedures. It gives skin a healthy glow and improves appearance.
TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE The newest and most stable form of Vitamin C increases collagen levels, reduces pigmentation and repairs sun damage. It is vital in the reduction of scarring.
GLYCERIN forms a barrier against moisture loss and attracts airborne moisture to the skin.
SODIUM PCA enhances skins’ moisture binding capacity.

MORE THAN INGREDIENTS MATTER!
When it comes to ingredients, less is more. Dermagenics contains only safe, pure and effective ingredients, and only what is needed to deliver effective results.
Carefully selecting the highest quality, purest and most powerful ingredients is crucial to formulating great skin care products. But even the best ingredients require effective formulation and delivery technology to put those ingredients to work for you.
Dermagenics advanced formulation, born of years of experimentation and clinical trials, combined with advanced delivery technology combine to deliver exceptional products with exceptional results.
A LABOR OF LOVE
Dermagenics was developed by a pair of formulating biochemists and a physician specializing in the effects of aging and trauma on skin. It is a labor of love, fueled by passion and a desire to be of service.
The goal was simple: Create highly effective, safe and affordable premium skin care line that contained no toxins, dyes or fragrances.
The development was not so simple. It’s taken years of research, formulation and trials to perfect the Dermagenics formulas. We can confidently assert that the result of our efforts is a breakthrough product line that challenges (and betters) the best skin care available, at any price.
NO TOXINS, DYES OR FRAGRANCE
Dermagenics contains none of the harsh or dangerous chemicals commonly found in other skin care products. Of the 9 personal products ingredients listed by the Environment Working Group as "poison", Dermagenics contains none. Our products also contain none of the skin degrading irritants that weren’t labeled as poisons.
Dermagenics is free of parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, alcohol, oils, waxes, nylons, dyes and fragrances, alpha hydroxys or glycolic acid and a raft of other ingredients found in other skin care products.
The FDA has warned that alpha hydroxys and glycolic acid, common ingredients in skin care products, can make the skin more susceptible to sun damage, which is known to cause skin cancer. Despite growing concern about the health risks of alpha hydroxys and glycolic acid, it is still difficult to find skin care products without them.
Every ingredient that goes into Dermagenics has a specific task to heal the skin and is vetted for its safety. Whether it's delivering crucial moisture, encouraging resilience, improving cell regeneration, or adding natural protein stimulants, each ingredient is carefully selected for its unique restorative properties. We put in what’s needed and leave out what’s not.
NO ANIMAL TESTING – NO ANIMAL BY-PRODUCTS
Dermagenics uses no animal by-products in any phase of the formulating process. We are certified cruelty free and never test any of our products on animals. Our supply chain is similarly animal free and we do not do business with any supplier that engages in animal testing. Though we are not a food, all our products are vegan and gluten free. We don’t recommend eating our products, but our own limited ingestion tests revealed no side effects.
We practice Win/Win in all our transactions. Our job is to create safe and effective products and to serve you, our customers. We are committed to the highest standard of business and environmental ethics. This means we treat our customers, vendors and employees fairly, with consideration and respect and don’t waste precious resources.
STREAMLINED PRODUCT LINE
Dermagenics main line product strategy streamlines the process of choosing an appropriate product. Unlike competitors, there is one cleanser, not 4 or 5. There is one moisturizer product in each segment, not 5, 6 or 7, and there is one sunscreen, not 3, 4 or 5.
Most of our competitors provide a dazzling and confusing array of similar products. By simplifying the product line, we are able to focus on providing excellent products in each category, while mitigating the expense of carrying inventory of products that do not serve markedly different applications. Thus, you are not subsidizing products that do not perform well.
THE TRUTH, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH
There’s no magic pill, no overnight fix! We don’t make exaggerated claims of how years of environmental impact, aging or neglect will be magically reversed in a week or two. It took some time to do the damage and it’ll take some time to turn it around. Most skin care makers would like to lead you to believe in an instant cure, but our own physiology contradicts those claims.
Fact: In the average 25 year old, skin replicates every 28 days. At 55 years old, your skin replicates every 58 days. Any product that promises real results sooner than that is, well, not telling the truth.
Here’s what you can expect from Dermagenics moisturizers: You will feel the effects immediately with the first application when your skin will feel softer and more supple. You will notice marked results within 30-60 days depending on age. Follow our tips for healthy skin and your skin texture, suppleness and health will improve dramatically. With the exception of expensive injections and plastic surgery, it takes time to repair damaged, prematurely aging skin, and the skin’s physiology requires some months before real, consistent and permanent change can occur. However, Dermagenics is the most effective alternative to surgery and injections, giving the same results over time.
We make no exaggerated claims of quick fix "magic pill" results, no "free trial" continuity programs and no bogus "before and after" examples used in our marketing material.
NO CONTINUITY MARKETING
We do not offer free “trial” samples. We think it’s a rip off. We’ve all seen those offers. “Try It Free”. When you call or sign up online, they will take your credit card info and eventually send you some product. The product is junk and designed solely to take your money.
The catch is that when you sign up for the free sample, you have often unknowingly signed up for the “continuity program”, which means that once a month they will ship you product and charge your credit card. Trying to cancel your “membership” can take months, all the while the “customer” is being charged.
This is a scam! The products are overpriced and of inferior quality. The perpetrators know that will get an average of 3 months “sales” for each “free” sample they dispense. We have heard the heartbreaking stories of those who have signed up for a free sample only to be taken advantage of with little or no recourse. Many of these shady operators pop up using names similar to reputable brands, then disappear after making a killing at your expense. Please don’t fall for it.
Buyer beware! A little known fact about the skin care business is that almost all of the "ten best" review sites for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products are little more than thinly disguised ecommerce sites, either selling the products they place in their top ten list, or receiving substantial compensation for falsely rating the products on their website. We have no affiliate program, and we don't pay for reviews or recommendations. If you read about Dermagenics in a magazine or on the web, you can be assured that it was an honest review. We don’t pay for reviews.
WHERE ARE THE BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS?
You won't find them here. Whoever said a photograph doesn't lie, never saw the before and after photos in cosmetic and anti-aging websites, marketing materials and ads. We all want to believe in magic, but most of these before and after photos require a real suspension of disbelief. We think they're highly misleading at best and downright fraudulent most of the time.
YOU CAN TALK TO US
Have a question? Reach out to us. The principals of the company are available to directly interface with our customers. We call it personal service and we’re here for you.
IT’S A GREAT PRODUCT!
At the end of the day, all of the foregoing is good info and certainly shows good intent, but if the product isn’t great, what’s the point?
Dermagenics is a great product! Try it. If you don’t agree, send it back after 30 days for a no hassle refund. Honestly, we haven’t had a refund request since we started, but we have a lot of satisfied, repeat customers.
Gave to my mom and mom-in-law for their birthdays - all three of us are now happy, younger looking women - way to go Dermagenics!

Best cleanser I have tried! Smells nice too....not chemical based like the other ones I have tried.
— David from Long Beach
Use the sunscreen regularly, love how easy it blends and my make up goes on smoothly over the top. Best part is I don't break out from using it!
I really love this product, will buy it again. Blends into my skin easily, doesn't leave whiteness...
Best face sunscreen ever used hands down. Used every day this summer and never clogged my pores. A bit thick going on, but instantly disappears after a few seconds. Very very good product...
I bought this sunscreen because it was so highly rated in all of the important categories. It really does work very well...

GUIDE TO HEALTHY SKIN
LIMIT SUN EXPOSURE
This is the single most important thing you can do to stop premature skin aging. Nothing we do breaks down the skin faster than exposure to UV rays. It breaks down elastin, causing the skin to sag, stretch, wrinkle and lose its ability to return to normal. Yes, we do need some sun for the vitamin D, but experts recommend no more than 10 minutes per day for a fair skinned person.
Stay out of the sun between 10 and 4. If out in the sun at any time, wear sunscreen. We recommend a physical barrier sunscreen to eliminate skin irritation, provide long lasting water resistant protection and to avoid stinging in the eyes and other sensitive tissue.
A healthy glow caused by good nutrition is something that no makeup or cosmetic will ever be able to mimic. Limit your intake of processed foods, and stick to fresh (organic if possible) produce, lean proteins, and whole-grains. The best foods for healthy skin are:
Avocados Fatty fish Walnuts Sunflower seeds Sweet potatoes Red and Yellow bell peppers Broccoli Tomatoes Soy Dark Chocolate Green Tea Red Wine (a glass, not a vat!)
Everyone knows that an active lifestyle promotes a healthy body and mind. Aerobic exercise helps the skin eliminate waste and airborne toxins. If you live by the sea, get wet! The salt water will cleanse the toxins and replenish vitamins and minerals. Stay fit an you’ll enjoy the benefits of healthy, glowing skin.
Drink plenty of water. It’s the most important way to keep your skin hydrated from the inside. Purified water without carbonation will give you the best results. Keep in mind that alcohol dehydrates the body (and skin), so try to avoid it in excess.
There’s a reason they call it “beauty sleep”. The skin corrects itself and rests as you get your zzz’s. You should aim for 8 hours a night.
Smoking makes your skin look older, gray and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outer layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients, such as vitamin A, that are vital to skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin.
Use a soap and sulfate free cleanser, wash skin gently with lukewarm water, close to your body’s temperature. Hot water opens pores and washes away skin’s own oils. Cold water closes the pores and makes it hard to clean the skin effectively. We recommend 2x per day, morning and night, followed by a quality moisturizing cream.
Hot water and long baths dry out skin. Pat your skin dry after washing.
A stressful state of mind comes out in pores in the form of a breakout. Set reasonable time limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. Consider incorporating deep breathing exercises, meditation, yoga, or anything else that makes you feel relaxed, into your daily routine.
Use a quality anti-aging moisturizer, as it will saturate all layers of the skin by using key ingredients such as: hyaluronic acid, protein activating peptides, and age-reversing antioxidants. We can recommend a great one if you like.
A healthy lifestyle, combined with a skin care regimen including Dermagenics cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen will prolong your glowing, healthy skin and produce a youthfully moisturized skin texture.
