My story begins back in 2000 when, at the age of 24, I was introduced to the wonder that is topical Vitamin C. A new concept at the time, it essentially heralded the introduction of active skincare and ushered in the era of cosmeceuticals. I was reviewing Vitamin C serums for a magazine I was writing for, so I decided to give (a preventative skincare serum) Vitamin C a go. Definitely imagining myself with smooth, youthful skin into my 40s and 50s!
Unfortunately, the Vitamin C serum I tried made my skin break out. Naturally, I stopped using it. It was frustrating as I was inspired by the benefits of Vitamin C, but unable to benefit from it. To me this was a shame. The reason my skin broke out from that Vitamin C serum was because it was formulated for an ageing client. The serum was rich and overly nourishing. This is when the DermaEnergy seed was first planted in my mind. An idea of creating an active skincare line aimed at those in their 20s who, like me, wanted to start preserving their skin, but weren’t acneic. I kept dreaming about creating a skincare line that was not based on oils or anything overly nourishing. Super-light serums. Something fun and colourful, but with serious ingredients. And something that kept skin looking ‘fresh’ and stimulated.
Fast forward a decade and I discovered a topical ingredient created to enhance energy in the skin. That ingredient, ATP - adenosine triphosphate. It was the missing element to execute my dream. I believed that all skin should benefit from this magical ingredient, not just an anti-ageing cream. I am proud to state that DermaEnergy is a skincare line formulated to keep charging the skin and life with energy.
I hope you love it as much as I’ve loved creating it! xxx

Dermaenergy believes we’re not cleaning our skin properly:
We’ve therefore created a skin cleaning brush to deliver a deeper clean. Made of soft silicone, it’s called the DermaBrush. The DermaBrush prepares the skin canvas properly, ensuring enhanced skincare results.
Dermaenergy believes energy is crucial for your skin:
We’ve based our entire skincare line on the active, energy-enhancing ingredient ATP. Enhancing energy and hydration keeps the skin in balance. And balance is always the goal.
Dermaenergy believes in a liquid exfoliant over a physical exfoliant:
We’ve created a liquid exfoliant based on AHAs and BHA to exfoliate the skin with minimal irritation. This means we’re working to improve the skin’s natural shedding process, instead of creating trauma.
Dermaenergy believes our skin is becoming more sensitive with the overuse of irritants such as scrubs, retinol, glycolic acid, sulfates, PEGS & fragrances:
We’ve created an active cosmeceutical range that is conscious of known irritants and suspect ingredients. By consciously reducing these when formulating, we’re able to achieve the results we want, while avoiding the reactions we don’t.
