Dermo-cosmetics Where Health And Beauty Meet

 You might hear about the word “dermo-cosmetics”, is it just another beauty buzz phrase or an evolution in the beauty industry we need to dig deeper? Let’s investigate.


 1. What are Dermo-cosmetics?

There is no legal definition for dermo-cosmetic products. Simply as it’s called, it is the combination of health – “dermatology” and beauty – “cosmetics”. 

Dermo-cosmetic skincare products are specialized skin care products which have been developed through extensive research by dermatologists and skin specialists to meet the high standards of the pharmaceutical industry. Reliability guaranteed, these innovative,hypoallergenic, effective and personalized dermocosmetic products are made to improve the skin health and address specific skin concerns. 


2. What are the benefits of Dermo-cosmetics products?

Dermo-cosmetic products contain active ingredients in higher concentrations, and are formulated under dermatological control. Therefore, the concentration of ingredients such as Retinols, Peptides, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Vitamins and Niacinamide are much higher in dermo-cosmetic brands leading to an improved performance. These products undergo rigorous laboratory tests to ensure their effectiveness and safety on sensitive or fragile skins.  

Dermo-cosmetic products are designed to combat skin imbalances of all kinds and to treat the root cause of a specific skin problem from acne to pigmentation.

Besides more advanced and higher quality ingredients, the technology of delivery of the product into skin is far superior in dermo-cosmetic brands. For example, Banobagi uses Transfersome technology onto the latest rejuvenating vital line to deliver the ingredients. This patent ingredient delivery technology has shown efficacy for its use to deliver the effectiveness wrinkle improvement ingredients deep into the skin.
