DO YOU TEST ON ANIMALS?
Our products and ingredients are not, and will never be tested on animals under any circumstances. We have refused to register or sell products inside China because of their animal- testing requirements. We carry LEAPING BUNNY certification on all our Skincare https://www.leapingbunny.org/
ARE YOUR ADVANCED SKINCARE PRODUCTS NATURAL/ORGANIC?
We believe that advanced skincare products are a combination of the power of naturally occurring and advanced science ingredients that are easy to use, very affective, non-irritating, non-toxic, and absolutely cruelty-free. In addition all our advanced DermaFaceMD skincare products carry the LEAPING BUNNY certification. For more information on Leaping Bunny certification please see https://www.leapingbunny.org/
DO DERMAFACEMD PRODUCTS CONTAIN FRAGRANCE?
Generally not, but there may be limited exceptions in future collections. Most fragrances contain “allergens” or allergic substances, if present it is compulsory to state this on the label, even if the percentage is minimal. Where possible we will remain fragrance free.
WHAT ARE YOUR SPF ADVISES?
Always wear a broad spectrum SPF and keep face and neck covered at all times. The term “SPF” is misleading as it refers only to protection against UVB rays, but specifies nothing about protection against equally damaging and dangerous UVA rays. We believe a broad spectrum sun protection (UVA & UVB) is necessary at all times a person is exposed to the sun. This includes while sitting on an airplane, helicopter, car or sitting at home or in the office near a window that has direct sunlight penetrating through.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE LIST OF INGREDIENTS CONTAINED IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
The INCL (ingredient list) can be located on the product and packaging of each individual advanced skincare formulation.
WHAT TYPE OF HYALURONIC MOLECULES ARE USED IN YOUR HYALURONIC SERUM?
DermaFaceMD Advanced Hyaluronic Serum is a proprietary blend of high molecular weight Hyalurnonic molecules combined with a proprietary blend of medium and low molecular weighted molecules, blended with a fatty acid tail to ensure best penetration. Hyaluronic molecules can penetrate deeper layers of skin when they attach to a fatty acid lipid. The highest weighted molecular molecule we use is close to 940 Daltons. In summary we use as high a weighted molecule proprietarily blended that can be optimally used before turning to solid that it can no longer be absorbed into the skin.
WHAT IS A HYALURONIC “COMPLEX”?
Hyaluronic Skincare products that claim to have a high percentage concentrate with a number greater than 2.5% Hyaluronic Acid are factually referring to the Hyalurnonic “complex” and that is in fact a much lower concentration of Hyalurnonic Acid in it’s purest form.
IS IT TRUE THAT YOU ADVANCED 1000X HYALURONIC SERUM ATTRACTS 1000X WATER?
Injectable HA products attract 1000 times their weight in water. Our topical Hyalurnonic Serum is best put on the skin after a shower or washing the face and before moisturizer and SPF to lock in moisture. Hyaluronic is a humectant.
CAN I USE DERMAFACEMD PRODUCTS IF I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN?
Yes. All our products are blended and especially designed for sensitive skin, if you know our FoundR Dr Danielle Marr Collins story you will know that these proprietary blends were formulated out of her need for “Doctor heal thyself” and she like many Irish women Fitzpatrick SCALE 1 skin type has extremely sensitive skin. All our products should be gentle enough to be tolerated by even the most sensitive skin types. However everyone’s skin is unique and skin can sometimes negatively react to certain ingredients, also skin can be more sensitive at certain times of the month in females, and at certain transitionary periods of life such as Perimenopausal and menopausal stages. Even the most ‘gentle’ and ‘non-reactionary” ingredients can sometimes cause a reaction in certain people’s skin so we recommend patch testing a small amount of the product on the inside skin of the wrist just to confirm compatibility.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF MY PRODUCT?
Every beauty product needs to be used within a certain time period. This is referred to as the “period” after opening and can be identified by date stamp. Certain proprietary blends will be stable for 6M, 9M, 12 or 24 months. Once opened the product should be used accordingly.
ARE DERMAFACE MD PRODUCTS HYPOALLERGENIC?
The full collection of DermaFaceMD is hypoallergenic, and formulated to ensure minimum allergic or hypo allergic reactions. However if in the past you have noticed sensitivity following past use of cosmetic products, you can carry out a simple test by simply applying a small amount of product to the inside of your wrist and leave it on ideally for a whole day. If the area becomes red or has any type of reaction, then it is best to assume the product contains a raw material that is not tolerated by your skin. If there is no reaction, than you can proceed to use the product.
