Indie beauty brands continue to unfold their power and surprise the beauty world with their unbounded flexibility and innovative formulas. Given the sheer number of emerging indie brands, JOYCE Beauty has taken on the mission of searching the globe for beauty hidden gems. And Derm Institute is our latest find.
Founded in the U.S., Derm Institute is a true indie brand, usually shying away from the limelight of social media. That didn’t stop A-list beauty buffs like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Vivian Hsu, Gal Gadot and Zhou Xun from recognising this hidden diamond, however. Created by a researcher and a scientist, the Derm Institute’s duo first goal was to develop cure for severe post-chemotherapy skin issues. The duo created and patented herbal extracts that support healthy skin function, signaling skin cells to act younger, stronger and healthier, which ultimately gives greater vitality to skin and provided the basis of the current skincare line. Using advances in DNA microarray technology – a method adapted from the pharmaceutical industry that tests the effects of drugs and ingredients on specific genes – the brand marries DNA and stem technology with Eastern therapeutic herbs to deliver immediate improvement to the skin, leaving it healthier, firmer and more luminous, without resorting to invasive procedures.
Soothes, hydrates and repairs. With nano-gold technology, the collection activates gene transcription factor PPAR and boosts 600 genes relating to hydration function, while working to protect skin cells and reduce inflammation. This collection features an advanced Moisture and Ceramide Complex that enhances the skin barrier function and nourishes vulnerable, stressed skin.
