Cosmetic science has often taken inspiration from medical breakthroughs (remember Botox?) so it is no surprise that stem cells have found their way into the innovative world of beauty. What are stem cells and how have they come into skincare you ask? Well, plant stem cells contain key components in growth factors that develop new cells and the production of collagen, protein and elastin which are all necessary components to youthful looking skin. Therefore, stem cells are becoming the hottest ticket in the beauty industry as they have found their way into hair care products such as shampoos and of course, face creams and serums.
Although being rated one of the Top 5 Stem Cell Skincare products by ELLE Magazine, DermaQuest has developed a line of products that are not just centered on stem cell. The anti-aging brand targets consumers of all ages by providing an innovative layering technology that maximizes effectiveness for all skin types and needs.
Thanks to our friends at Lumapharm (lumapharm.com), the official Canadian distributor of the DermaQuest line that has brought the brand north of the boarder, Assignment Fashion got a first hand test of the products that premium med spas proudly stand by and recommend to all of their clients.
- DermaQuest 3D Complex Stem Cell 3D
Discover the secret of our Stem Cell 3D Complex, the most notable technology in anti-aging since the debut of neuropeptides. Decadently imbued with advanced Biotech Marine® and botanical stem cells, powerful brightening peptides, and potent antioxidants, this rich, silky cream is the heart of your 3D Ritual and DermaQuest’s exclusive salute to the illusive fountain of youth.
Assignment Fashion first heard about this product when it won the coveted ‘Best Anti-Aging Product’ at the 2014 Canadian Beauty Innovation Awards held in Toronto. With my endless late nights and early mornings, this product caught my eye and after a few days of using the Stem Cell 3D Complex it was an obvious match! It not only brightened my skin, but also reduced the expression lines on my face. I love how the product spreads light and easy without that greasy feeling by three in the afternoon. If you are a little taken aback by animal stem cell, DON’T SWEAT! DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Complex is plant based! A+ for Anti-Aging.
- C Infusion Serum
Our C Infusion Serum uses extra-active BV-OSC and Orange Stem Cells, known to gently tone and tighten, while protecting skin from harmful free radicals that cause fine lines and wrinkles. A good investment for all skin types at every stage, C Infusion energizes skin as discoloration and future signs of aging recede through the power of nourishing antioxidants.
Summer has officially made its way into Canada and so has DermaQuest’ C Fusion Serum. This is a must have for the summer as the orange stem cells stimulates collagen as it absorbed into my skin deliciously. The product is far from watery as it does not run through your fingers like most Vitamin C derived serums. Aside from incorporating this product to your daily skin regimen, The C Infusion Serum is perfect for those days that you just want to pat something on your face and walk out the door for brunch with friends. Feeling fresh and juicy!
- Nourishing Peptide Cream
This lavish moisturizer helps return skin to its youthful luminescence. Imbued with advanced peptides, CoQ10, and fatty acids, expect to diminish fine lines and wrinkles as skin tightens and firms while free radical damage fades. A luxuriously swift moisturizing cream ideal for drier skin types.
Like many, I tend to yearn for smooth skin, especially during the winter months! The DermaQuest Nourishing Peptide Cream not only makes my skin feel hydrated during harsh winters, but also makes my face feel nice and firm. This is essential! This is the perfect moisturizer for nights out as my make-up applies well with this product. I recommend that you use this product at night as a before bed moisturizer as it really absorbs into the skin while you get your beauty sleep. Seeing a difference quickly is key and the advanced peptides pushed my current nightly moisturizer to the back of my cosmetics table. Welcome home Peptide!
