DermaFix ingredients based on new science and technology

More and more beauty industry growth is being powered by the fields of science and technology, using broader innovations to create and promote new and exciting beauty products. Even though new products are always emerging, there are often only a few ingredients that seem to be a catalyst for future innovation and will withstand the test of time. Naturally sourced DermaFix ingredients, such as plant stem cells, elicit a variety of functional benefits that maintain, protect and renew the skin. Plant stem cells are part of the new natural actives and promote dermal (skin) stem cell health. The dermal stem cells have the ability to differentiate into fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin proteins which are essential for skin elasticity and resilience. Stem cells have two properties: Self-renewal (the ability to go through numerous cycles and cell divisions while maintaining the undifferentiated state) and differentiation (the capacity to differentiate into other cell types to replenish cells and regenerate tissue) In contrast to humans, every plant cell has the potential to regenerate new organs (leaves, stems, flowers, and seeds) or even the whole plant throughout their whole life. Plant cells can de-differentiate under certain conditions and become a stem cells DermaFix uses PhytoCellTecTM Malus Domestica (also known as Apple Stem Cells) derived from the stem cells of a rare apple tree cultivated for its extraordinary longevity and shows a tremendous ability to rejuvenate ageing skin. Apple Stem Cells are found in the following DermaFix Anti-ageing products: Ceramide Complex with DMAE, PowerDerm and Corrective Eye Complex. DermaFix ingredients that needs no introduction within the skincare market is retinol (vitamin A). It...

Ageing skin and Collagen breakdown

  Collagen is the main structural component of the dermis providing strength and support to human skin. Collagen production in the skin tends to decline with age, as much as by 1% per year after the age of 18, which ultimately leads to ageing skin. This decline is far more noticeable in skin exposed to regular UVA/UVB radiation and is linked to photo-damage with resultant photo-ageing, hyperpigmentation, collagen breakdown and possible cancer.     Collagen types present in human tissue: Type I: most abundant in the body and skin, abundant in scar tissue, also found in bones, tendons, and other tissue. Type II-XI: form a component of cartilage Type III: Formed in phase-1 of wound repair, common in fast growing tissue and is later replaced by stronger Type I collagen Type IV: Basal Lamina (capillaries membrane filtration) Type V, VI: Generally found alongside Type I collagen Type VII: Major constituent of anchoring fibrils in basement membrane within the skin’s epidermal-dermal junction as well as oral mucosa and cervix Type VIII: Lining of blood vessels Type XI: Found alongside and interacts with types I and III Types I and III being the most abundant Collagen synthesis and stimulation should play a major role in any successful anti-ageing regime to treat ageing skin. Products will vary depending on the action required, with ingredients used in personal care being researched by pharmaceutical giants who can afford the clinical trials in laboratories across the world. Delivery and formulation challenges involved in product ingredients differ significantly from product house to product house. Liposome encapsulation enhances product penetration and is amongst the most popular delivery...

Dietary factors that can assist to improve skin health

  We often hear the saying ‘you are what you eat’, and whilst this is usually said quite ‘tongue-in-cheek’, it does have a certain ring of truth to it when it comes to skin health. What we put into our bodies can very easily impact the health of the skin, and we should therefore make a concerted effort to follow a healthy diet, including the following key components;   Protein to improve skin health Lean fat proteins are essential for over all body and skin health.  Amino Acids (smallest forms of protein) are key components needed to regenerate and heal all bodily tissue and cells. The topical application of peptides (synthetic amino acids), will further benefit the skin by helping to maintain collagen and elastin production in the fight against ageing. DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care has the following peptide-rich formulations for you to choose from: DermaFix DeCeleRate – a fast-acting age reversal complex utilising Matrixyl® 3000 and Matrixyl® Synthé6® Smart Peptide Technology, working to increase the stimulation of collagen and elastin fibres in the fight against ageing. DermaFix Collagen Conformer- contains the purest peptides and tetrapeptides in a complex of active ingredients, working to accelerate the restructuring of the dermis with an immediate tightening effect noticed on application. MD Prescriptives DNA Protection for Telomeres – offers essential protection and repair of the cellular telomere associated with DNA damage and cellular senescence.   Useing water to improve skin health There are many health benefits to increasing your water intake.  Not only does water keep you hydrated, but it further improves the removal of waste products and toxins from your system.  Most people...

Cleanse, Correct, Protect

With so many products available on the skin care market, one is often faced with questions of ‘What steps within my skin care routine are the most important?’ and ‘what should I be doing in order to achieve the best looking skin possible?’. While a routine can be as complex as you wish to make it, the following steps to cleanse, correct and protect your skin should definitely be included in order to achieve optimal skin health.   Cleanse your skin!  Thorough cleansing of the skin marks the foundation of any successful skin care routine. The role of a cleanser is to suitably remove all impurities and make-up from the surface of the skin. Skipping or skimping on the cleansing step may lead to exacerbation of acne-like lesion formation including blackhead formation. When you thorough cleanse the skin, it further ensures that all product applied after the cleansing routine, have improved penetration into the skin through thorough removal of any oily residues from the surface of the skin. When purchasing a cleanser, look out for products that are free of all ‘nasties’ like Sodium Laureth Sulphate, a foaming agent that causes stripping of the skin’s barrier, leading to a loss of vital moisture from the skin. DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care has formulated a cleansing range that provides effective results without compromising the integrity of the protective barrier of the skin. These cleansers include:   Gentle Cleansing Gel A non-stripping, foaming cleanser that gently lifts away superficial debris from the skin without removing essential moisture. Gentle Cleansing Gel is mild enough to use on all skin types.   Brightening Cleanser A...

DermaFix Skin Care – SMART Anti-Ageing Peptides

DermaFix DeCeleRate contains 3 smart anti-ageing peptides that have been tried and tested for over 9 years. This improved formulation incorporates Matrixyl® synthe’6® assisting to boost and rebuild the skin whilst improving wrinkle depth. Peptides are strings of amino acids, the building blocks of protein, commonly found in cosmeceutical formulations in their synthetic form. The body is primarily made up of protein and amino acids are essential for cellular growth and regeneration. Peptide hormones are manufactured in nerve cell structures of the hypothalamus (the part of the brain most involved in the regulation of hormone secretion) and bathe the pituitary gland. The Thymus Gland lies just below the thyroid and behind the collar bones and produces hormones that increase the body’s T-cells which secrete Human Growth Hormone also known as the “the youth hormone” this stimulation leads to overall cell rejuvenation. The Thymus Gland produces various peptide-like hormones, which initiate a cascade of biochemical reactions that produce effects throughout the body, facilitating the functioning of organs. Thymic peptides furthermore stimulate the Pituitary Gland. There are various forms of peptides used within the skin care industry, including Neuropeptides, Tetrapeptides and Oligopeptides which play an important role in mediating inflammation in anti- ageing formulations. Vital encapsulated delivery systems are an essential in the formulating of corrective anti-ageing skin care protocols.   The DermaFix Anti-Ageing products make use of the following Peptides within our product range;   Matrixyl, Matrixyl® 3000 and Matrixyl® synthe’6® These are anti-wrinkle actives that have been developed and incorporated by skin care companies in various anti-ageing preparations.
