Dermal Therapy’s moisturizers are formulations that actively restore moisture even to very dry skin.
Dermal Therapy’s formulations contain appropriate concentrations of the elements similar to those naturally found in healthy skin. These include: urea, silk amino acids and alpha hydroxy acid (lactic and malic acid). These formulations have been evaluated by leading toxicologists and found very appropriate for human use. In fact, the main ingredient in Dermal Therapy, urea, is found in every body cell. Unlike other urea formulations, fragrance is not needed to mask odours.
A clinical test of the Dermal Therapy formulations with increased Alpha Hydroxy Acids has shown them to be very effective moisturizers with improved hydration of the stratum corneum (outermost layer of skin) when compared to urea formulations without this ingredient combination.
The lactic acid (alpha hydroxy acid) stimulates the skin’s production of collagen, a process that improves the growth of new basal cells (skin cells) that rebuild a naturally occlusive, protective skin barrier. Enhancement of the skin's natural barrier is important to keep moisture in and infectious agents out. This new skin growth displaces the old dry cells through exfoliation so the skin feels very smooth and elastic. The Dermal Therapy formulations contain both lactic and malic acids, to improve the exfoliation of dead skin cells. The amino acid derived from pure silk protein restores skin tone and luster to give the skin a wonderful, silky, smooth, non-greasy feel.
