Dermesse Vitamin C Serum is a product of Axia Medical Solutions, a skin care product manufacturer that markets its products directly to physicians and other medical professionals. The Dermesse website provides surprisingly little information on its products. The Vitamin C Serum comes in a 5% and a 10% solution. The product is marketed as a potent anti-oxidant that minimizes the effects of free radicals. According to the company, the Dermesse Vitamin C Serum will restore skin tone and the “youthful appearance” of skin.
There is no information on the website as to the source of Vitamin C used in the Dermesse Vitamin C Serum. Many higher-quality skin care products use ascorbyl palmitate, also known as Vitamin C ester, but Dermesse does not give enough product information to know if this is the case. There are no other ingredients listed, although some websites indicate that there are six ingredients in the serum. Also missing from the Dermesse Vitamin C Serum website is any indication of clinical studies or documentation as to the effectiveness of the product. This is surprising in a skin care product marketed to physicians, so perhaps they are available upon request. Dermesse does not appear to provide a money-back guarantee or any free samples or trial sizes to consumers.
There are very few product details available for the Dermesse Vitamin C Serum. The source of the Vitamin C is unknown, which can be problematic as Vitamin C can be volatile and easily broken down in liquid form. Some forms of Vitamin C are more stable than others, but there is no further information on the Dermesse site to be able to determine that.
No other ingredients are listed which makes purchasing the Dermesse Vitamin E Serum a risky venture for those with allergies or sensitivities to skin care ingredients. Also, without knowing what the other ingredients are, it is impossible to determine whether the product contains lower-quality “filler” ingredients.

The Bottom Line
Dermesse Vitamin C Serum has a lot of unknowns with respect to its ingredients, its effectiveness and its allergenic qualities. Although Vitamin C can indeed be a potent anti-oxidant for the skin, certain forms of Vitamin C are more effective than others. The Dermesse website does not provide any information to help the consumer determine the quality of this important active ingredient. The Dermesse Vitamin C Serum is not specifically formulated for wrinkle reduction so those who are seeking an anti-wrinkle product should look elsewhere. Without the other ingredients being listed, those with sensitivities or allergies to skin care products should definitely stay away from the Dermesse Vitamin C Serum. There are many high-quality Vitamin C-based rejuvenative products on the market that back up their claims with clinical studies and with a money-back guarantee. These products will be a less-risky purchase than this one. However, if your physician prescribes Dermesse Vitamin C Serum, this professional probably knows what’s best for your skin.
