The Dermajuv Therapeutic Cleansing Gel Is the best cleanser if you use any anti aging or anti wrinkle products in your daily routine.
This therapeutic cleansing gel is brought to us by Dermajuv, who has a long standing reputation as a serious leader in anti aging cream, wrinkle products, and eye gels. Their STRONG commitment to science and their belief in investing in superior ingredients really had us excited to examine their new facial cleanser gel. Well, seeing as how Dermajuv has “hung their hat” on science and ingredients in all their other products, let’s analyze their cleansing gel on the same lines: no nonsence, no hype, just ingredients with scientific backup. Frankly, for a cleansing gel, it seems like they offered up WAY more than the competitors do, as far as the ingredient list, and what it is capable of accomplishing.
Before we go into this, though, Dermajuv stresses on their website, that their Therapeutic Cleansing Gel leaves the skin primed to absorb to the maximum, the benefits of any wrinkle treatment or anti aging treatment you might be applying afterward. Of course, their goal is to enhance the way their own products work, but if you use some other anti wrinkle or eye cream, they will work BETTER if you use the Dermajuv cleansing gel beforehand. In other words, your wrinkle cream will work better if you use this cleanser first. After our experience with the cleanser, we felt like using our wrinkle cream without this product first, was like showering with a raincoat on… we were missing out on SO MUCH potential of our wrinkle treatment.
OK, that aside, let’s move on with the review based on the ingredients of the cleanser.
It is a gel, that is light and fresh, and when rubbed in your fingers creates a rich, soft foam that you apply to a moist face and rinse off. It smells delicious actually.. like a light citrus scent mixed with vanilla. It reminded us of those “orange dreamcicle” ice cream treats we ate as kids. What memories!
Here’s what this facial cleanser brings to the table:
Chamomile Extract – Chamomile is an anti-inflammatory that calms and soothes the skin. It inhibits histamines, which are our skin’s response to irritation. These histamines cause redness and inflamation… and are lessened by Chamomile. Chamomile also blocks toxins and free radicals, and reduces REDNESS and BLOTCHINESS. Also, melanin (pigmentation) is slowed down by Chamomile, which means that through daily use of this cleanser, you’re ensuring even tone and color to your skin, and less redness.
Shea Butter - Contrary to myths, shea butter has NO BUTTER in it… it is made from the Karite nut tree, which grows in western and central Africa. Although only popular in recent times in America, medical pracitioners in Africa have long known about how powerful and amazing shea butter can be to treat: Burns, Skin Conditions, Broken Skin, Stretch marks, and Dryness. All these symptoms are “wounds” of the skin, which is exactly what a wrinkle is, or what an age spot is. OH, guess what else shea butter has… Natural protectants from the sun. What a super ingredient! In summary, shea butter has been used for thousands of years at treating exactly all the most hated things our skin can develop. And Dermajuv’s therapeutic cleanser contains it… so before you even start with a wrinkle cream or eye gel for the day, you ALREADY have some serious treatment done to your skin.
Aloe Vera – We all know about aloe vera. It soothes skin and aids cuts, burns irritations and toxins. On top of all that, it deeply moisturizes and softens the skin. Yes, although your skin isn’t physically cut or burned, the effects of daily sun and pollution DO DAMAGE to the skin, and you can drastically reduce or reverse this with a simple cleanser from Dermajuv. As if that wasn’t enough, aloe also acts as an antibacterial and can kill fungus. The final property of aloe vera which we feel is important is that it IMPROVES the effectiveness of sun protection or anti aging treatments when applied beforehand.
Olive Leaf Extract - Olive leaf extract contains a compound called Oleuropein. This is a powerful antiseptic and astringent. This means that it naturally kills infection and bacteria that can cause buildup of dirt, acne, and pimples. It also is a fantastic “Cicatrizing agent” which is something that heals wounds, acne, and pimples (basically any legion on the skin). If you think, “oh, but I don’t have legions on my skin”. YOU STILL NEED OLIVE LEAF to heal the unseen damage to your skin done by sun, natural aging, and pollution. Olive leaf extract also has amazing properties that calm and smooth the skin with daily use. This all translates to bacteria-free, clean, smooth skin, which heals from the daily damage faster than if left untreated.
Tangerine Oil - The essential oil derived from tangerines is an Antiseptic that naturally kills unwanted bacteria, and soothes spasms. Possibly the BEST thing about tangerine oil, is that it encourages NEW CELL GROWTH to help the skin heal from the damage we inflict on it each day with the sun, pollution, and lack of proper nutrition. Need something else that tangerine oil does? How about the fact that it increases the skin’s ability to absorb the nutrients it needs, and blocks out the toxins that we don’t want. What on earth could be better? On top of that, it incresases the skin’s ability to remain balanced between dry and oily. Tangerine oil is quite possibly the best ingredient that a facial cleanser could have.
In summary, the Dermajuv Therapeutic Cleansing Gel is so much more than a gel that cleans the dirt off your face. This product Improves the effect of your wrinkle creams or eye gels, plus loads your skin up with so much protection and fantastic benefits, that it could actually be considered an anti aging treatment in itself. A truly amazing breakthrough, that no other cleanser can equal. Wow, we continue to bow to the superiority of the Dermajuv products.
