Welcome DermaQuest

I’ve been using DermaQuest in my Facials for years and now they are on our shelves just for you! Like many of you I’m becoming increasingly aware of the signs of aging on my skin and they are leaders in advanced results-driven formulations.

” Our Philosophy and Mission is to provide physicians and estheticians globally with innovative, relationship-based products and services of the highest quality to support excellence in skincare practices.” Founder & Chemist Sam Dhatt

Attention Locals!! Mention this post and receive a DermaQuest Enhancement with any Facial.

Some of their proprietary ingredients include:

Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
An essential hydrator for everyone’s skin! Each molecule of hyaluronic acid can hold 1,000 times its molecular weight in moisture. It is known for its hydrating properties along with its natural delivery into the skin. Being one of the most valuable ingredients in skin care DermaQuest has incorporated this active into 90% of its product line to provide increased smoothness for plump, hydrated skin from the inside out.

Skin Brighteners
The SkinBrite Collection is formulated with some of the most advanced skin brighteners to date! Each formula is uniquely created with many different tyrosinase inhibitors to stop the melanogenesis process in multiple steps giving you the most illumining skin tone results. ChromaBright imparts the latest in skin brightening technology to effectively correct pigmentation and un-even skin tone. DermaQuest has incorporated this innovative ingredient into all the SkinBrite products.

Plant Stem Cells
Advancements with stem cell technology have continued to provide more powerful and effective marine derived and botanical plant stem cells in the skin care market. DermaQuest combines the latest generation of plant stem cells to reduce pigmentation, fine lines, and protect the skin from environmental damages. These plant stem cells contain all the active molecules of the plant to effectively address multiple areas of concern. Sea Fennel, Edelweiss, Gardenia, and Lilac plant stem cells are incorporated into some of the most advanced anti-aging products included in the Stem Cell 3D collection.

Peptides
Made up of essential amino acids, these active ingredients are small yet powerful to drastically change the skin! Peptides are key anti-aging ingredients that reduce fine lines and wrinkles, promote collagen, reduce inflammation and brighten skin tone. With new peptides being discovered every year they are considered to be an active ingredient that will continually change and advance with time.

Vitamin C
Is one of the most essential nutrients for the body and is a key component to maintaining healthy glowing skin. Vitamin C is an active ingredient that brightens and tightens the skin. Keeping up with cutting edge technology we have incorporated the latest lipid soluble form of vitamin C, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, in our superior formulations. The most stable form of vitamin C with three times better penetration than L-Ascorbic acid! Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate can be found throughout the DermaQuest line and is most concentrated in C-Lipoic products.

AHA/BHA
Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids have been around for many years and continue their strong stride in being very effective performance ingredients to treat a wide array of concerns. These key hydroxy acids promote an increased cell turnover to reveal luminous new skin cells at the surface. While providing a quicker cell turnover rate AHA’s/BHA’s impart multi functional qualities to improve skin texture, decrease pore size, reduce congestion, moisturize, and promote collagen.

Minerals
DermaQuest brings you the highest grade micronized minerals in all of our sun protection products. Zinc and Titanium are utilized for their superior UV ray protection and pro-longed broad spectrum coverage. ZinClear SPF 30 offers you clear and tinted versions leaving the skin protected yet covered with a flawless finish. Minerals are safe, effective, reduce inflammation, and are designed to be used on all skin types especially sensitive and acneic!

Antioxidants
Powerful antioxidants generate healthy cell renewal and acts as a cellular bodyguard for our skin. Essential for all skin types they protect our skin from free radical damage that our skin encounters on a daily basis. Co-Enzyme Q10, Idebenone, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Green Tea Extract are widely used in DermaQuest products to give your skin an enhanced safeguard against environmental radicals.

Enzymes
These gentle enzymes act as Pacman on the skin to digest the dead surface skin cells. Papaya-Pineapple and Pumpkin Enzymes provide gentle yet visible results to reveal a more youthful glow. When used in a daily regimen other active ingredients have the ability to penetrate into the skin to provide quicker skin care results.

September Product Feature-Lip Kit

Ultra-hydrating retractable lip crayon packed with intense color. Combining convenience and smooth application, these pigment-rich, long wearing lip colors provide a creamy yet definitive matte finish. Enriched with emollients, Vitamin E and a hint of diamonds, each gorgeous shade glides on and stays put for hours. No sharpening required.

“This is the best lip crayon I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a LOT of crayons, from indie to high end brands). The color (Hollywood Nights) is a perfect mauve brown, neither too pink nor too muddy. The texture is also creamy and smooth, very light and yet still long lasting. It’s also very well pigmented so doesn’t require a ton of swipes to get color. I can’t praise it enough!

New! Deep Pore Cleansing System

mature duoNew to Star Brows and on double Rewards now through August 2016!

If you’re like me you want bright, clear, and ageless skin. I have a secret, it’s massage. Simple right?  I’ve been talking about and using Cleansing Oils for about 20 years now and it never gets old! These oils make a great vehicle for the massage and cleansing process at home or during a Facial! Tu’el pairs the Oils by skin-type with Herbal Toners. Here are some questions about the process I’ve had over the years:

 

  • I’ve always been told not to touch my face, and if I do, gently.                                                   “Touch your face and go deep, every night! It stimulates blood flow, relaxes underlying muscles, reduces puffiness, clears sinuses, and exfoliates the skin. (Acne skin is an exception, you’ll want to do more of an acupressure type massage so you don’t over stimulate the skin but still address the underlying systems.) “
  • My skin is acne prone, oil feels icky on my skin, and seems to make me break out.         “There is truth to this, however your skin is steeped in oil so it’s not a bad thing to cleanse with an oil designed for acneic skin. Also, oil is accepted into the pores easily because of the familiarity so a deep cleansing is possible. The pores can lock down when introduced to harsh, sudsy cleansers.”
  • Can’t I use any oil?                                                                                                                                  “Yup! I like Tu’el Deep Pore Cleansing System because it addresses different skin types, uses appropriate essential oils for each type, and has an herbal Toner that breaks the Cleansing Oil down afterward.
