Dermalist launches new Age Defying Multicomplex serum

Australian cosmeceutical brand Dermalist has added a new retinol plus peptide serum, Age Defying MultiComplex, to its range of active skincare. 

The brand says the “highly active cosmeceutical formulation, containing powerful, clinically proven peptides SNAP-8TM (clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by up to 63% in 28 days) & UplevityTM (clinically proven to increase elastin by 21.7% and collagen by 47.3%) and direct release encapsulated Vitamin A to target the appearance of skin ageing, fine lines, wrinkles & loss of firmness. Assists in preventing the visible signs of premature ageing caused by UV rays, pollution and environmental aggressors.”

What makes this serum stand out?

Age Defying MultiComplex is the ultimate at-home solution for those with ageing skin. Brand Founder Stefanie Milla says she created the product “as a heavy hitter to specifically target cellular age and reverse the damage done to skin due to time and environmental stressors. The effects of this cellular damage result in both static and dynamic wrinkles, fine lines, loss of elasticity resulting in a reduced in skin firmness, and a decrease in dermal thickness which causes thin, crepe-y and dehydrated skin. Along with environmental damage and pigmentation which all result in an aged skin appearance.”

What makes it so special is that it not only contains a potent, encapsulated form of retinol and specialised anti-ageing Peptides to effectively target the visible signs of ageing – it also contains therapeutic dosages of other Dermatologist favourites include Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide to optimise the overall skin’s health and appearance at the same time. This means that for those with ageing skin as their primary concern, they need just one serum to treat their concerns and achieve firmer, brighter, healthier skin rather than 2, 3 or even 4 serums like they would have traditionally.  

Milla says “I am so excited about Dermalist Age Defying MultiComplex because it combines the strength and cellular activity of pure Retinol without the loss of activity that usually occurs due to oxidation. This is due to the revolutionary encapsulation and time release technology that we use to harness the potency of fresh, active retinol!

We have combined this ingredient science with advanced peptide technology that’s targets skin laxity, pigmentation and wrinkles, and used Dermalist Signature skin health ingredients, such as Australian native extracts and supportive vitamins to deliver the most holistic and complete skin health and anti-aging formula.”

The product’s unique formulation of retinol with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients also makes it the perfect solution for those looking to manage acne and breakouts.
