BioDermetiques is a Florida-based skincare system offering anti-aging products infused with fruit acids and titanium oxide, packaged together in systems instead of sold as separate products for a unique way to treat common skin conditions. BioDemetiques offers many systems to treat many skin conditions, and their Skin Renewal System specifically targets anti-aging issues such as wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and loss of elasticity. According to BioDermetiques, the key to proper skincare is the use of fruit extracts, utilizing the power of antioxidants to rid the skin of free radicals. Currently their Skin Renewal System is priced at $116.00 per system, with the option to purchase separate products on their website. Their policies are not clear, but it is implied their products are available through salons. They also offer the option to purchase their kits from their website.
The use of fruit extracts in anti-aging skincare is popular, and it is difficult for consumers to choose the appropriate brand for their skin type. Although BioDermetiques do not specify what age group their kits will fit the best, they do claim these kits contain scientifically backed ingredients, which may quell some fears.
According to their website, their Skin Renewal system contains the key ingredients Alphagen Compound (containing six different fruit acids), Titanium Dioxide, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. The Skin Renewal Kit contains a daily cleanser containing wintergreen leaves, a day cream infused with the above ingredients, and a night cream infused with antioxidants. Do these ingredients have any anti-wrinkle benefits? While Titanium Dioxide does not offer any real benefits – it is a common ingredient in most sunscreens – Vitamin C and E offer potent benefits for skin cells. Along with providing antioxidant benefits to skin cells, these vitamins also help improve skin health. Vitamin E is commonly cited as an anti-wrinkle agent because studies have shown it reduced the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin C had a similar but lessened benefit.
These vitamins seem to be more potent when digested in natural form, however, such as consuming leafy greens or oranges.
- Contains antioxidant-rich vitamins which promote healthy skin growth.
- Produces many ingredients that target specific skin conditions.
- The expense of its products may not be ideal for some consumers.
- Titanium Dioxide provide no skin-related benefits that we know of.
- Does not contain many effective ingredients.
The Bottom Line
Vitamins do help reduce some signs of aging, but more potent ingredients – such as collagen or specific peptides – are needed for overall anti-aging relief. This does not suggest that BioDermetiques contains no skin-related benefits, and the opposite is true as well. There are some key ingredients used that may decrease the onset of wrinkles, but this can be gained through other cheaper products also. It may not offer enough specialized, concentrated wrinkle care that some consumers may be looking for.
