The medical effect of plants and plant extracts is once again attracting attention. DERMASENCE uses the power of nature for effective and compatible medical skin care. On the basis of scientific findings and research, the effective potential of some plant extracts is being harnessed for medical cosmetics. The focus is always on a particularly high level of compatibility between these natural active components.
Advantages of natural plant extracts at a glance:
Purified, natural extracts are particularly low in irritants, because they are free of harmful ingredients by extraction and have a low allergological risk.
DERMASENCE does not use pesticides in cultivation.
The standardised technology of our extraction processes enables particularly compatible and highly potent plant extracts. It gets the best out of the natural resources used.
Classic natural cosmetic products often contain a versatile combination of different extracts, fragrances and perfumes, and essential oils. Especially sensitive skin can react to such a mix with skin irritation or allergic reactions. Plant extracts such as chamomile, marigold or arnica, for example, are allergenic, highly purified extractions are tolerated.
Essential oils, which are often used for perfuming, can also lead to allergies and irritations depending on their type and concentration.
At DERMASENCE, the chemical process of purification removes the allergenic components from the plant extracts and only the effective part of the extract is retained. This increases the compatibility of the entire product. One example is the isolated active ingredient bisabolol - it is less allergenic than chamomile extract.
A good example of the method used by DERMASENCE is the concentration of the active force from the leaf of the dyer’s woad plant. This active ingredient is used for particularly irritated skin and skin prone to neurodermatitis in special care products such as DERMASENCE Vitop forte. Dyer's woad has been used since ancient times not only as a dye - even Hippocrates and Hildegard of Bingen took advantage of the healing effect of the woad plant for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. The ancient healing knowledge of the rediscovered power of nature, which is also used in traditional Chinese medicine, is underpinned by recent studies. A specially developed extraction process extracts the main ingredients from the woad plant in the form of an extract, thereby eliminating all allergenic ingredients. What remains is an active ingredient that is known for its strong anti-inflammatory and anti-irritative properties and as a special care product is particularly suitable for neurodermatitis as well as dry and irritated skin.
DERMASENCE works in development with extracts from other natural sources. Through the extraction of polyphenols from rhubarb root and other natural raw materials, ancient healing knowledge is used to combine innovative product developments for skin care with high efficacy and tolerability.
With the network of experts and the establishment of scientifically supported in-house production and extraction, the course has been set for unique skin care products with natural active ingredients.
