Our Nutridermaceutical® Difference

From years of research and biomedical evidence, Dermatonics® was developed as a revolutionary natural skincare range from Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. Our formulas are so innovative in the way they are created.  As a result, we have developed unique and world-first NUTRIDERMACEUTICALS®. These formulas are authentic, eco-friendly, with natural actives and enable a purpose-driven difference. Dermatonics® has been tested in some of the most extreme climates and geographic regions around the world, to ensure the best product results for various skin types.

In collaboration with the Australian government, we were granted a revolutionary million dollar project to develop, enhance and test a special method to extract and prepare some of our botanical ingredients using supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) technology. SFE provides super-pure ingredients that remain active and are safer start materials. This is complemented by our in-house trade secret skin delivery system – responsive extracellular matrix enhancement technology (RECET)™. These advanced methods guarantee our certificate of authenticity at the molecular level, well beyond ‘organic’. Our advanced technologies enable safer and more effective formulations with superior clinical-grade natural skincare. SFE technology is a green eco-friendly technology that helps our Earth by minimising CO2 emissions and also helps conserve bio-active ingredients so they remain as similar to nature as possible.
