French medical-grade skincare brand, Dermaceutic Laboratoire celebrated its 20th birthday with Australian beauty media last week.
The brand is distributed in Australia by Dermocosmetica. Dermaceutic first launched here in 2013 and is today stocked in over 600 clinics across Australia and New Zealand.
The event marked the Australian leg of a global tour for Dermaceutic. The brand is currently available in over 80 countries.
A sit-down morning tea was hosted at the QT Hotel in Sydney. The Founder and Managing Director of Dermocosmetica, George Kypreos welcomed guests with an informative presentation outlining the company’s specialised offerings.
George said representing Dermaceutic came about as a response to the influx of high tech laser devices entering the Australian market. Clinicians needed a skincare solution to aid skin recovery. Dermaceutic made for an ideal offering, given its formulas are evidence-based and backed by scientific studies. Fast-forward to 2022, where Dermaceutic made up 59 percent of dermocosmetia’s skincare sales.
Nicola Fagiuoli founded Dermaceutic in 2022. Nicola shared with guests his humble beginnings in consulting doctors. He has long held an interest in chemical peels and their benefits to the skin.
France has the most dense population of scientists and cosmetic formulators in the world, Nicola said. The brand, therefore, maintains a strong attention to detail during the formulation process which typically runs for two years per product. Formulas are also custom made to secure the potency of each active ingredient.
Each Dermaceutic product contains four actives on average, Nicola said. Two of the brand’s hero products include: K Ceutic Post-Treatment Cream SPF 50, and Mela Cream for Pigment Spots. The brand is also highly regarded for its line of professional peels that range from ‘very superficial’ to ‘deep’.
At the event, a signature Dermaceutic Milk Peel was performed on a model. The peel is designed for the treatment of mild acne, keratosis pilaris and superficial pigmented lesions.
Guests were also treated to a selection of sweet and savory hors d’oeuvres, accompanied by coffee, loose leaf teas, and glasses of Mumm. Personalised illustrations by Belinda Xia were also provided, as well as generous gift bags containing a selection of Dermaceutic products.
