DCL Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories Review

Overview

DCL is also known as Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories. It is a company formed by a team of physicians that has produced a variety of skincare products. The ones that we want to focus on during this review are within DCL’s anti-aging line.

Product Details

There are currently 12 products that appear claim to aid in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The names of these products are Hydrating Serum, Peptide Plus Eye Treatment, Ultra Gentle Eye Cream, AHA revitalizing Eye Cream, Eye Refining Matrix, YQ Stratum Bio-Transformed Anti-aging factor, High Potency “C” Scape Serum, “C” Scape Serum, AHA Lightening Gel, Profoundly Effective “A”, Skin Renewal Complex, Vitamin Infusion, and Glycolic Acid Pads.

Even though one source claims to have found a list of ingredients for thi DCL product, a complete list was unable to be found on the official website. This may be due to the fact that the website appears to still be under construction at this time. Some of the ingredients that were named in within the product listings were Vitamin C, Antioxidants, Vitamin A, and Green Tea.

Vitamin C use to be thought of as essential in Collagen stimulation until studies have shown that the oxidation process of the Vitamin C can actually promote the production of free radicals. However, there was a listing on the website that claims that the Vitamin C in these products are stabilized, therefore possibly preventing the production of free radicals by minimizing the oxidation process. Vitamin A, also known as Retinol, has been known to be used in acne fighting agents. It has also been known to cause skin irritations and dry patches on the face. It can also increase the sensitivity to the sun, causing the person using it to have to use extra sun block in the entire duration of the use this product. Green Tea is known to decrease damage caused by the sun and is thought to be an effective as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory.

The Good

  • The vitamin C in this DCL product appears to be stabilized.
  • Products have been proven in the company’s own clinical studies.
  • All of the Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories products were produced by a team of doctors.

The Bad

  • Some products may contain Retinol, a known irritant.
  • No prices were available through the website.
  • Appears that products may only be available through a physician.

The Bottom Line

These products appear to have been produced and tested by a team of physicians. They offer a 100% money back guarantee if the customer is not satisfied. It also helps that proof of the clinical studies along with before and after pictures were posted on the website. Nonetheless, there are two things that were found about DCL products that may be disappointing to the potential consumer. One of them is that there was not a list of ingredients to be found on the official website so that someone could do their own research. Next there is the assumption that it may appear to only be available through a physician due to the “find a physician” tab and no where to place an order on the website. It may be considered inconvenient and it could get expensive if a trip to a doctor’s office was necessary to obtain these particular skincare items.
