Dermaquest’s tri-factor illuminates the balance of protection, strength and regeneration of the skin through the powerful combination of peptides, antioxidants and plant stem cells.
by stabilising these vital ingredients together in each product, we ensure the promise of a highly functioning skin; simultaneously addressing a variety of complex skin concerns at a cellular level.
botanical or plant stem cells function as the origin of vitality in the skin. Dermaquest’s active and effective formulations are packed with the most advanced plant stem cell technology available in skin care today.
how do they really work?
plant stem cells are highly resilient and are able to withstand substantial damage while having the invaluable ability for self-regeneration. when we use plant stems cells topically, they help support our skin’s natural processes (homeostasis) in a variety of ways and are mindfully targeted to address specific concerns, such as:
pairing plant stem cells with innovative and advanced delivery systems to guarantee maximum efficacy and visible results.
peptides are chains of amino acids that form building blocks within the skin. there are 20 amino acids that can be used as the “peptide alphabet” and that run through the Dermaquest line.
combine two or more of these amino acids and link them, and you have started a peptide chain. these chains send specific messages that benefit the overall health and structure of the skin.
mix and match amino acids and you can create thousands of peptide combinations performing cell to cell communication that impact the skin on a multitude of levels.
what messages do they send?
antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation (think; rust). it all starts with molecules. a stable molecule has all of its electrons; however environmental stress can cause a molecule to lose one or more of its electrons making that molecule unstable.
this molecule called a ‘free radical’ becomes destructive to healthy living cells and tissue through a process called oxidative stress. antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation, to counteract the negative impact this process has on our bodies. antioxidants come in many forms such as vitamin e, vitamin a, plant stem cells and peptides, which all have potent antioxidant properties. vitamin c is a highly effective antioxidant especially when paired with ferulic acid.
Dermaquest has take antioxidant protection to new heights, formulating with BVOSC, an oil soluble, highly stable form of vitamin c that can double collagen production in the skin and offers unparalleled free radicle protection.
our collections contain the combined healing properties of stem cells, peptides and antioxidants.
