Institute DerMed cosmeceuticals skin care products contain the highest concentration of active ingredients available without a prescription. Cosmeceuticals represent a marriage between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Like cosmetics, cosmeceuticals are topically applied, but they contain ingredients that influence the biological function of the skin. Cosmeceuticals are able to improve the appearance, by delivering nutrients necessary for healthy skin. Products have been formulated using Chiral technology, an advanced process that isolates free radicals to correct the way they fit into the skin’s receptors increasing product penetration and effectiveness. Each formulation offers specific ingredients that penetrate and remain in the epidermis to perform definite functions, such as managing the way melanin is diffused in the skin cells, neutralizing free radical reactions which reduce the affects of aging, suppressing the bacteria that causes acne, calming inflammatory response, and facilitating water retention in the tissue for greater healing and rejuvenation.
Make-up that is Skin Care. Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics are the most technically advanced makeup in the world and recommended by Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologist around the world. Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup does not formulate with FD&C (Food, Drug and Cosmetics) dyes, chemical preservatives like parabens or synthetic fragrance, and there are no fillers within the line such as talc. Because the formulas are mineral based products, they have:
Non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) properties
Virtually no allergy risks
Broad spectrum UVB and UVA protection – to a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 20
Anti-inflammatory (calms and sooth the skin) properties
High water resistance
Complete coverage for most skin conditions
No talc or parabens
Inert (not able to support bacteria) Minerals
Environmental awareness – with no animal testing
The minerals and pigments are refined and processed to form microscopic flat crystals. These crystals overlap each other on the skin and form a filter that allows the skin to breathe and function normally while still protecting it from air-borne pollutants. The staying power of the minerals is so great that they rarely need to be touched up during the day, and because they are highly water resistant they won’t smudge or crease and will withstand the most strenuous exercise.
