The DermaHealth skin cream is a very new skin care product from Derma, a company founded by Dr. Robert M. Schafer, M.D. in 2012.
The skin cream contains two different types of pigments: an organic and an inorganic pigment.
The organic pigments are derived from natural ingredients, such as grapeseed oil and avocado.
The inorganic pigments come from a synthetic compound called BPA, and are made from the natural preservatives ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate (also known as E.H.M.), and benzyl alcohol.
The ingredients list for the skin cream states: “Contains organic, natural pigments and essential oils from grapeseed and avocado.”
That sounds like it would be pretty safe, except for the fact that the organic and inorganic ingredients are also used in the skin care products of a lot of dermatologists.
The skin cream does contain the two ingredients in question, but the ingredients listed for the organic skin care cream are only in the ingredients list of a skin care line called SkinCare (formerly DermaSkin).
SkinCare contains a synthetic form of the two inorganic compounds that can also be found in the cosmetics of dermatology.
SkinCare also contains a natural skin care serum called The Skin Solution.
That serum contains vitamins A, B and C, which are the primary ingredients in skin care and can be used to treat the common skin condition psoriasis.
The serum does not contain any of the inorganic and synthetic ingredients that are listed on the Derma skin cream.
What you should know about the skin creams ingredients is that they are very similar to products made by Derma or Derma’s skin care partners, Derma Skin and Derma Hair Care.
The SkinCare serum is also made by a company called L’Oreal.
Derma and Dermas Skin Care products contain ingredients similar to ingredients found in L’Oréal’s Beauty and the Beast Beauty serum, but Derma has also added ingredients like zinc oxide and hyaluronic acid to the products.
So, what does all of this mean for skin care?
The dermatologist community is very concerned that Derma products may contain ingredients that could pose health risks.
I spoke with a dermatologist friend of mine who is also a dermatology professor at a large school in the United Kingdom.
She said that she thinks that Dermas skin cream could contain inorganic inorganic chemicals.
She also noted that Dermalogica is a company that makes skin care creams and the SkinCare and Skin Solution skin creamer both have a chemical ingredient listed on their labels.
If you have concerns about the safety of these products, please let Derma know.
In the meantime, if you have any concerns about DermaCare products, you can use them in conjunction with skin care formulations and skin care formulas from Dermaloderm.
