What is the mission of the derma e® brand?
derma e® is all about combining advanced science with healthy vitamins, antioxidants and botanicals to make a real difference in the look and feel of skin. We make highly natural formulas that target the most significant skin concerns – fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, hyperpigmentation and dehydration. What sets derma e® apart is that all our formulas contain high concentrations of active natural ingredients that are set in a base that is 100% vegan, Paraben-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free and GMO-free. Our products are also made with recyclable packaging in a manufacturing facility offset by wind energy, giving you formulas that are as skin-friendly as they are earth-friendly.

What has been derma e®'s best-selling product to date?
Our best-selling product is our Firming DMAE Moisturizer with Alpha Lipoic Acid and C-Ester. DMAE has become such a popular skin-firming ingredient – it really can work wonders on loose, aging skin on the face, neck or jowls. With added antioxidant power from Alpha Lipoic Acid, C-Ester, Vitamin A and Vitamin E, Firming DMAE Moisturizer addresses loss of firmness and elasticity as it helps support healthy collagen and elastin.

Are all derma e® products vegan?
Yes. It’s very important that we care not only for humans but also for the health and safety of our animal friends. As such, every derma e® formula is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Plus, derma e® finished products are never tested on animals.

Why is it important for your products to be good to skin, and good to the environment?
Healthy living starts with a clean environment. As a consumer, you have a choice. You can actively contribute to the future health of your skin, your children’s skin and the earth we live in, or you can choose otherwise.

When you choose derma e®, you can be sure that you are contributing to a bright, beautiful future of healthy skin, a healthier environment and a healthier world.

What are some of the potential dangers of using products on the skin that are not natural and vitamin rich?
Today, there’s no reason to put potentially unsafe chemicals or toxic ingredients on your skin when you can nourish and fortify it healthfully with vitamins, antioxidants and botanicals.

Natural ingredients can contain multiple active components like antioxidants, carotenoids and bioflavonoids. Plus, defensive components like anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic and anti-viral agents. These components offer a complex range of healing powers that benefit the body, restoring balance and producing healthy, beautiful skin. These benefits just can’t be recreated with synthetic ingredients that are often only able to provide a single benefit.
