Aderma began selling their line of skincare products back in the 1960’s, giving them an advantage over other companies, due only to longevity.
They sell to consumers worldwide, but are based out of France, which is also appealing to many consumers, who associate France with both high end skin care products and high end perfumes.
They claim to use unique ingredients and their own gathering techniques and plants, and they even have a pharmaceutical line. But they dedicate their product website to educating the common consumer about basic skincare.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action:
There are no ingredients listed for Aderma. Therefore, you cannot truly evaluate the efficacy of their claims. We have found that with most companies that claim to grow their own herbs and so on, they do not have some of the important ingredients like peptides, because peptides cannot be found in plants, collagen and elastin as well cannot be found in plants. Usually they just use things that smell good and may soothe the skin like chamomile, but have nothing to do with moisturizing or real wrinkle care.
Overall Impression of Aderma:
Aderma provides no real information in the way of testimonials, ingredients, or even a money back guarantee. Though based in France, they do not actually sell their own product. Only third party retailers sell it, negating any responsibility they might have to the consumer. They apparently use 50% plant derivatives, but dandelion could technically be a “plant derivative.” We don’t think Aderma is based on anything worthwhile, especially considering their bleak descriptions.
