Dermectin is marketed toward and supposedly made exclusively for middle aged women. They make “outstanding pharmaceutical, nutritional, and personal care products.” Products include wrinkle care, sun care, scar care, and facial care products.
But they don’t sell their own products. All products are sold through third party retailers. Their apparently “hypoallergenic” complex is made up of peptides.
Ingredients and Mechanism of Action:
Found on a third party website, Dermectin ingredients include Active ingredients: collagen, Polysaccharides and Glycosaminoglycans Inactive ingredients: Water, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG 100 Stearate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Sorbitan Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butylene Glycol, Butyrospermum Parkli (Shea Butter Fruit), Mangifera Indica (Mango Seed Butter), Glycerol Polymethacrylate, Propylene Glycol, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Mentha Peperita (Peppermint Oil), Algae Extract, Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi (Bearberry) Leaf Extract, Echinacea Purpurea Extract, Glucosamine Sulfate, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Hyrolyzed Wheat Protein, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamine A Palmitate), Propylene Glycol, Water, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Foeniculim Vulgare (Fennel) Extract, Lavandula Angustifolie (Lavender) Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Extract, Rosa Canina (Rose) Flower Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Sambucus Nigra (Elder) Flower Extract, AchillaNillefolium (Yarrow) Extract, Tocopheryl Acectate (Vitamin E Acetate), Urea, Xanthan Gum, Yeast Extract, Triethanolamine, Collagen, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium PCA, Disodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Methylparben, Porpylparaben, Sodium Benzoate, Caramel, Yallow 5.
A sizeable list we might say. But out of this entire list, they have only two anti aging ingredients, collagen and palmitoyl oligopeptide. But they list the peptide as an inactive ingredient, which is certainly unexpected. Otherwise, they have a bunch of moisturizers and really inapplicable ingredients all together.
Overall Impression of Dermectin:
With over 100 different ingredients, the highest concentration is probably around 2%, if that. That 2% would account for a top ingredient such as water, glyceryl stearate, PEG100 stearate, etc. Those found near the bottom of the list and of higher importance won’t even get 1%, which is still a highly insignificant amount all things considered, and inefficient in getting rid of your wrinkles.
