Dermal Therapy’s moisturizers are not just beauty products. They are clinically proven formulations that actively restore moisture even to extremely dry skin.
Dermal Therapy’s formulations contain appropriate concentrations of the elements similar to those naturally found in healthy skin. These include: urea, silk amino acids and alpha hydroxy acid (lactic and malic acid). Unlike other urea formulations, we do not need to add fragrances to mask odours.
A clinical test of the Dermal Therapy formulations with increased alpha hydroxy acids has shown them to be very effective moisturizers with improved hydration of the stratum corneum (outermost layer of skin) when compared to urea formulations without this ingredient combination.
The lactic acid (alpha hydroxy acid) is believed to stimulate the skin’s production of collagen. This is a process that improves the growth of new basal cells (skin cells) enhancing the naturally occlusive, protective skin barrier.The skin's natural barrier is important to keep moisture in and infectious agents out. This new skin growth displaces the old dry cells through exfoliation so the skin feels very smooth and elastic. The Dermal Therapy formulations contain both lactic and malic acids, to improve the exfoliation of dead skin cells. The amino acid derived from pure silk protein restores skin tone and luster to give the skin a wonderful, silky, smooth, non-greasy feel.
Natural and Non-toxic Moisturizers
Because Dermal Therapy’s main ingredients are similar to those naturally found in healthy skin, it is non-toxic and extremely safe to use. These formulations have been evaluated by leading toxicologists and found very safe for human use. Our main ingredient urea is found in every body cell. Even people undergoing dialysis have safely used DERMAL THERAPY for years. Urea brings water into the skin structure and then leaves the body unchanged. This is why it is both so useful and non-irritating.
