DermaLastyl is an anti-wrinkle cream that works by combating the loss of skin elastin. The main signs of elastin loss are laugh and frown lines, and loose skin in general. The active ingredient in the cream is Tropoelastin, which actually reverses the loss of elastin by rebuilding it within the skin. Through this, the cream offers a more youthful appearance and taut skin and is exclusively the only company that uses human-based Tropoelastin in their products.
Results are promised within 30 days if the cream is used twice daily, with a money-back guarantee if the product does not live up to expectations. The site offers one “after” photo (although it does appear staged) with a brief testimonial, along with some media clippings trying out the cream. A video, which auto-plays upon arrival to the site, shows the same woman from the “after” photo in a CBS Eyewitness News segment, but offers little in the way of useful information, as I was expecting a video demo or infomercial. This is actually found on the Science-Testimonials part of the site.
The site is very detailed, with an entirely separate page for ingredients, and further sub-pages for each main active ingredient, explaining in great detail how it is formulated and its specific use in the cream (and other products). This is further illustrated in helpful diagrams. Information on clinical studies is also provided, and being from a science background myself, I appreciate the wealth of information, charts, video and photos that are on offer.
DermaLastyl – Product Description
The product’s main ingredients are difficult to understand, but its principal ingredient, Tropoelastin (renamed Elastatropin), was initially developed within the military as a wound-healing formula to regenerate tissue and encourage healing for combat-related injuries. The formula promotes skin elastin regeneration at the cellular level. One of its other ingredients, Matrixyl-3000 (a combination of matrikines, proteins that originate from elastin), works on reducing the appearance of existing wrinkles by promoting collagen production.
The FAQ states that as the cream is very concentrated, only a small amount is required – just two fingertips’ worth is enough to cover the entire face. In addition, the site admirably boasts that there are no animal-derived ingredients, nor are they animal-tested, which makes the product suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
The product can be ordered online or by phone, and the price for a two-month supply is $89 (no shipping cost), with the aforementioned 30-day money-back guarantee. Also on offer is the intensive eye serum ($29 for two months, plus $8.95 shipping), and a facial scrub ($14 per bottle). Shipping is free for these two products if your order totals over $70. The site also offers a “Preferred Customer Program”, involving regular savings and monthly automatic shipping and billing.

DermaLastyl – The Bottomline
DermaLastyl has garnered a lot of positive reviews online, as well as good publicity via newscasts and discussions/placements on high-profile TV shows. The exhaustive clinical and general information on the major active ingredients is a welcome relief to many who want to know as much about a product as possible, particularly as it contains chemically-refined ingredients that are less palatable in a growing market of all-natural products. DermaLastyl appears to be a promising product, and the 30-day money-back guarantee is a good option if you’re still not convinced.
