Dermaceutic is most probably a new name to many of you, as it was with me, up until last year.
Here is some background to this cosmeceutical brand.

Dermatologists and surgeons specialising in facial rejuvenation wanted to offer technologically advanced skin care products for their patients, to accompany general medical and cosmetic procedures. Their research led to the development of Dermaceutic – a range of cosmeceuticals to prepare, optimise and maintain the results of all medical and cosmetic procedures.
 Hence you won't find this brand in any mainstream stores or beauty salons.

Dermaceutic Laboratoire is the partner of choice for over 30,000 aesthetic dermatology specialists throughout the world. Dermaceutic stockists are carefully selected and it is imperative that they fill very strict criteria, that criteria being there is an associated doctor within every Dermaceutic Clinic. 

The Dermaceutic home care range focuses on the three essential areas of skin rejuvenation: 


It was created to address most skin types’ needs - from pigmentation to fine lines to acne - and contains a unique combination of active ingredients.

Interestingly Dermaceutics is one of the first cosmeceutical companies to develop products using wonderful ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, stabilized vitamin C, and glycolic acid. 

Now that you know a little of the history of the brand, lets get down to the "nitty-gritty". 

Dermaceutic Advanced Cleanser 150mls R380

I was recently sent their newly launched Advanced Cleanser,which comes in a foam format and is recommended for all skin types, including sensitive and dehydrated skin.
Having been a cleansing milk type of person for many years, it really has taken me some time to come around to the idea of using a rinseable liquid type cleanser.
I have really enjoyed a couple over the last few years and, you could say that I am becoming somewhat of a convert!

The transparent container that the foam comes in, fitted comfortably into my palm and is really easy to use with one hand and a bonus - you are able to see exactly how product much you are using.
Just a word of warning - you really don't need very much of this fragrance free cleanser, so don't be tempted to pump out too much of the product!
Application is easy just apply the foam onto a wet skin, massage thoroughly then rinse with water.
(On my first usage I dispensed enough to cleanse my whole body)

I found this foam cleanser effectively removed my heavy make-up and left my skin feeling clean, fresh and surprisingly hydrated and balanced, as opposed to leaving a feeling of tightness.
All this thanks to a unique hydrating complex that helps keep skin soft, supple and comfortable.
(I can see how these benefits would feel wonderful if used on a post peel skin)

High performance active ingredients include :

  • XYLITOL: Promotes skin hydration and smoothness
  • ZINC: Removes excess sebum
  • UREA: Removes scales from the skin's surface
  • GLYCERIN: Provides a hydrating and protective film

 Another aspect that I enjoyed about this foam cleanser - its Paraben free and packaged in an airless bottle to ensure optimum hygiene and a minimal concentration of preservatives.

I'm so enjoying my Dermaceutic Advanced Cleanser, which goes to prove that I have transitioned from
 "becoming a convert" to "converted".
