Comments: With more than 100,000 skin therapists in over 80 countries around the world, Dermalogica continues to expand and offer consumers more customized skin products for tailored results.
Last fall, cosmetic specialists with Dermalogica launched the Multivitamin Power Serum. This velvety serum is infused with vitamins A, C and E and penetrates deep into the skin to deliver a higher dosage of ingredients to help decrease fine lines and age spots.
“Vitamins received via food and supplements take a long time to reach the skin, and can sometimes fail in impacting skin after undergoing metabolic processes inside the body,“ said Annet King, director of global education for the company. “This is why it’s so good to have vitamins in our skin care products. However, keeping vitamins active and stable is a delicate challenge,” she added.
The new microencapsulation technology makes it possible to put a higher amount of vitamin actives into liposomes, which results in greater vitamin stability, optimized dosage and greater skin permeation.
Its latest product, the Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30, is a multitasking primer that is applied prior to the application of makeup and promotes the longevity of make-up products applied throughout the day. The primer contains peptides to help increase collagen levels and SPF 30 to protect against harmful UV rays. It is infused with natural earth minerals and Hydrolyzed Pearl power, both of which effectively provide a neutral tint. All of this is achieved without any chalky or drying effects that are often associated with SPF products.
