Dermavexin: Does Dermavexin Work?
Dermavexin is a skin care product that proudly admits to using ‘controversial’ stem cell technology. Whether it actually does or not is hard to say as there does not appear to be any clinical evidence, but the results that it produces certainly do mimic this process by restoring skin cells, thereby reducing signs of aging.
The information for Dermavexin is quite limited on the official website. The site is very attractive and user-friendly, but the information is repeated in many of the sections. A short customer testimonials section is included where it is apparent that the cream is used by both men and women. The site also contains FAQ’s but, again, this is very brief and uninformative.
According to the manufacturers, Dermavexin starts working almost immediately on the skin and illustrates the results in a series of photos. Although optimum results are achieved in approximately 4-6 months, Dermavexin can be used indefinitely to prevent further damage and maintain the restored skin cells.
Dermavexin – Product Description
Dermavexin is a scientifically developed formula that combines peptides, lubricants and skin hydrators as the key ingredients. The five peptides used are Peption 5, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Oligopeptide-29, Octapeptide-4 and Decapeptide-7 which are all essential in stimulating the body’s collagen producing ability, a process that slows as we age causing wrinkles, sagging and fine lines. The lubricant Jojoba oil is included in Dermavexin as are anti-irritant ingredients such as Allantoin, thought to be gentler than the often used Retinol.
Although the full ingredient list is shown, no individual amounts are provided so it is not certain how powerful the formula would be. Also, it should be noted that Dermavexin does contain perfume which may cause irritation for those with sensitive skin.
Dermavexin can be used either on its own or under make-up and should be applied at least twice a day after cleansing.

Dermavexin – The Bottomline
If in fact Dermavexin does use the controversial stem cell technology, some consumers may not feel completely at ease purchasing this product. However, judging from the ingredients listed, Dermavexin does contain some good, proven substances not all of which are chemically based (for example, Jojoba oil and Glycerin). If the cream really did achieve the amazing results as claimed it would be good to see some proof in the form of clinical studies but, like so many other skin creams, no such information is provided.
Dermavexin is very expensive compared to similar skin care treatments and $125.00 is a lot of money to spend on a product that is relatively unknown. There have not been any complaints filed against the company in terms of their return policy, so providing one feels comfortable spending the money, Dermavexin may be worth trying for at least 60 days, the length of the guarantee.
