I got to go to the Dermalogica Academy in New York City while I was at BlogHer this summer. It was a magical place – so many awesome skin care products! I got a mini facial and it was glorious – I love the Dermalogica products! I was excited to try their new multivitamin power serum.
Dermalogica’s new multivitamin power serum delivers synergistic dual benefits to skin: a potent, more skin-friendly form of Vitamin A, and a groundbreaking new formulation process which enhances the effectiveness of the serum. The new serum expands Dermalogica’s AGE Smart™ line with the use of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate (HPR), a retinoid ester which intercepts the earliest signs of aging, including photodamage. The benefits of this ingredient are maximized by the next generation in liposomal preparation technique, a laboratory process which allows for higher load-capacity—and therefore greater potency and effectiveness – in the formula. This innovative encapsulation technology dramatically differentiates the new serum from past eras of liposomes, with the delivery of more stable actives, and the placement of the increased dosage of vitamins deeper into the skin, where they can do the most good.
The new anti-oxidant-rich formula features Vitamins A, C, E and F to enhance cell-turnover, reduce hyperpigmentation, and ensure a smoother surface appearance. Unlike earlier iterations of retinol (Vitamin A) and its derivatives, the serum’s “hero” ingredient HPR does not trigger redness and irritation. This retinoid ester is readily available in the skin to stimulate cell turnover and to inhibit MMPs (enzymes) that degrade collagen and elastin.
n addition to HPR and an assortment of encapsulated vitamins including two forms of stabilized collagen known to stimulate Vitamin C production in the skin (MAP and Ascorbyl glucoside), multivitamin power serum is fortified with Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-14, a peptide that helps stimulate collagen biosynthesis and reduce the signs of aging in the skin. The slim 0.75 oz. glaminate tube is offered at a suggested retail price of $65 and is available wherever Dermalogica is sold.
This is my go to serum. I apply it after cleansing and before moisturizing. My makeup goes on very smooth after this and it leaves my skin feeling soft but not greasy. The light citrus smell is pleasant and my skin has been looking great!
