According to the Dermelect Serum website, this is the first cosmeceutical company that is a joint venture between medical professionals and licensed aestheticians. Dermelect Serum strives to bring “targeted solutions for problem areas with dermatologist tested ingredients”. Product categories include anti-aging, skin solutions, total body care and eye care. The Dermelect Cellular Redefinition Serum is found under the skin solutions category, although it does also claim to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and “increase skin’s firmness and luminosity”. The product is available on the company website as well as from other online retailers that we found. The company provides free samples with every order, and they also offer a 30-day money back guarantee, although the website states that they will not accept “overly used products” for return.
According to both the company website and other online retailers, the Dermelect Cellular Redefinition Serum works most effectively when it is paired with other Dermelect products like the Rapid Repair Facial Moisturizer and the Microdermabrasion 2-3 Facial Reveal. While it is not necessarily unusual for a company to recommend that their products be used in combination for best results, we find that this adds cost and sometimes inconvenience for a consumer who is simply looking for an effective anti-wrinkle treatment to add to their current skin care regimen.
The ingredients listed for the Dermelect Cellular Redefinition Serum include hyaluronic acid, comfrey, green tea, vitamin E, avocado oil, jojoba oil, safflower and chamomile. The hyaluronic acid is of particular interest to us, since this is a proven anti-aging substance with superior hydration abilities. The green tea and vitamin E found in Dermelect Serum are antioxidants that can protect and repair the skin from free radical damage that can contribute to the aging process. The company does a good job of listing and explaining each of the ingredients that are used in the formula. However, we would have preferred to see additional active ingredients like matrixyl 3000 and argireline that have proven anti-aging benefits and are particularly effective when they are used in tandem in a single product.
- The Dermelect Cellular Redefinition Serum is reasonably priced and readily available from multiple sources.
- A full ingredient list is disclosed on the company website.
- The only recognized anti-aging substance found in the Dermelect Serum formula is hyaluronic acid.
- The 30-day money back guarantee is unclear as to how much of the product you can try before returning.
- The product is recommended for use in conjunction with other Dermelect products, raising the price and time spent on a skin care regimen.
The Bottom Line
0The Dermelect Cellular Redefinition Serum appears on the surface to have a lot going for it, but we find that there are key ingredients lacking from the formula that may hinder the effectiveness of the product. For the same price as Dermelect Serum, you may get a bigger bang for your buck with another product that will offer a greater number of anti-aging substances in it’s formula.
