There is no restriction in the use of Salicylic acid for pregnant or breastfeeding women when the concentration is below 2%.
However, following the European regulation, we do not recommend using any products containing more than 2% of Salicylic acid.

The difference between the two products results from the intensity of the glycolic acid concentration. Foamer 5 contains 5% of glycolic acid and Foamer 15, 15%. The glycolic acid or AHA (Acid α-hydroxy) derived from fruit acids is known for its keratolytic action. It easily penetrates the skin to stimulate cell renewal by destroying the bonds that bind dead cells together. Foamer 15 is more intense and is ideal for normal to oily skin.

In general, this technology is used for food supplements but its use is now expanding to the cosmetic industry.
The goal is to reach the deeper layers of the epidermis and increase the bioavailability of the active ingredients.
Liposomal active ingredients are better assimilated by our body thanks to the similarity of liposomes and the composition of the membranes in our cells.
Dermaceutic does not currently use this technology.

The Tri Vita C30 color evolution is mainly due to the high concentration of L-Ascorbic Acid, this active ingredient can be easily and rapidly oxidized due to several factors.
The color may also varies according to room temperature, hence why sometimes the content comes out clear for the first opening and have a slightly yellowish color over time.
To prevent as much this phenomenon, the product is formulated with low-water content, low-pH and packed in an airless bottle.
The efficacy and safety of this product is not related to the color of the product.

The combination of three forms of Vitamin C in the Tri Vita C30 creates a unique synergy that optimizes the product's efficacy. 
These three forms are characterized by different behaviours in relation to cell membranes: Ascorbyl ester is fat-soluble and penetrates well throughout the cell membranes, whereas Ascorbic acid and Ascorbyl silano remain on the surface since they are water-soluble.
The fat-soluble form can therefore act more deeply to promote deep restructuring, while the water-soluble forms exert their action in the epidermis for enhanced protection and regeneration.

Sun Ceutic 50+ contains a combination of chemical filters and mineral filters.
They ensure high protection SPF but also protection in the two fields within the ultraviolet rays spectrum: UVA and UVB.
We have evidence demonstrating that Sun Ceutic 50+ offers a broad spectrum of protection on the UVB (SPF50+) and UVB spectra.

It is important to differentiate UVA protection against UVB considering that two different tests have to be performed (SPF & UVA-PF).
In fact all our protection creams include UVA & UVB protection but regulatory speaking the SPF 50 label is related to UVB protection only and this label is the one which is usually mentioned on packs.
Regarding UVA-PF (UVA protection factor), we also meet the requirement to be at least at 1/3 of the SPF 50 which is the minimum to obtain to comply with the regulations and to be able to mention UVA protection.

Parrafinum liquid retains moisture, thereby accentuating the hydrating and calming effect of the product.
It is also well tolerated by the skin. The Paraffin oil used in cosmetics is highly refined and meets strict health criteria.
Different studies have shown that Paraffin oil is not completely occlusive and therefore allows skin to breathe.

The Glycerin used by Dermaceutic is 100% derived from a natural origin. 
 

During pregnancy or breastfeeding, it is not recommended to use:

 

- Activ Retinol 0.5 and 1.0, C25 Cream, Mela Cream, Yellow Cream (due to the presence of Vitamin A and its derivates)
- Tri Vita C30 (highly concentrated in Vitamin C)
- Foamer 5 and 15, Mask 15, Light Ceutic, Turn Over (due to the presence of fruit acids such as Glycolic acid in high concentration).

 

Please note that it is advisable to use an SPF 50 every morning to avoid melasma which is a common skin reaction when pregnant because of hormone disruption and sun exposure.

Activ Retinol 0.5 is indeed a product that can sensitize and make the skin more reactive when used too often. This is due to Retinol, a very powerful molecule recognized as one of the standard active ingredients for anti-aging (because it stimulates fibroblasts to reinforce the structure) and its "irritating" effects are mainly due to its action that stimulates cell renewal which provides a beautiful radiance, tightens pores, and gives a smoother skin texture. It is therefore important to avoid using it too intensively and to avoid combinations with other AHA-based products. We do not limit the use of the product to the winter period, but we strongly recommend using it in the evening and spacing out the use if there is discomfort.
