The dm SKINCARE line is produced by DermaMed USA, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of medical and aesthetic equipment. According to the dm SKINCARE website, DermaMed USA has been recognized by physicians and skincare specialists around the world for 22 years. The skin care line features antioxidants and botanicals in its formulations.
The dm SKINCARE line includes a cleanser, toners, moisturizers, serums and treatments, as well as a sunblock. One of the dm moisturizers, the Collagen Renewal Cream, is specifically formulated to reduce fine lines and improve skin texture. The products are available individually or in “routines”. The routine packages are Hydrating, Clarifying, Lightening, and Anti-Aging. Oddly, the Collagen Renewal Cream is not included in the Anti-Aging kit. dm SKINCARE does not offer online ordering, but the website states that this feature is coming soon. You must call the company to order. All prices are noted on the website. There is no indication of a product guarantee or any product samples or trial sizes available.
The main anti-aging ingredients in the dm SKINCARE line are Vitamins A (as retinyl palmitate) and Vitamin C. Green tea extract is a common ingredient in this line and has been independently proven to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. What does not appear to be included in the dm SKINCARE formulations are peptides, such as Argiriline or Matrixyl 3000, which have been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and stimulate collagen production. Higher-quality anti-wrinkle formulas include these peptides to produce dramatic and long-lasting effects on wrinkles and fine lines.
dm SKINCARE does not appear to include a full list of ingredients for any of its products on its website, which makes it difficult to determine what other ingredients might be included. For example, parabens are found in many lower-quality skin care creams and serums. Parabens are cosmetic preservatives and are known allergens. It is also difficult to determine if these products contain synthetic colors, fragrances, or “fillers”.

The Bottom Line
dm SKINCARE products provide many treatments to help hydrate and improve aging skin. The inclusion of common ingredients like Vitamins A and C and green tea extract do not set this skin care line apart from its competitors. It would be preferable to see peptides included in the active ingredients to have some assurance that these products were effective. Not providing a full list of ingredients makes it difficult for those with skin sensitivities or allergies to assess whether these products are appropriate for them and they may want to avoid these products until a full ingredient list is available before purchase. There are many anti-wrinkle products on the market that include proven ingredients and stand behind their products with a money-back guarantee, and you may wish to try those instead for simplicity’s sake.
