The Benefits of dermaviduals®

dermaviduals® is a unique skincare line, unlike anything you’ve ever tried before. It applies the “outside in” principle of Corneotherapy to skin care with the patented DMS® (derma membrane system) concentrate, which repairs the stratum corneum and brings homeostasis to the skin. DMS® is almost identical to the skin’s lipid barrier thanks to its five beneficial ingredients: phosphatidylcholine, ceramides, squalene, triglycerides, and phytosterols, which makes it the ideal medium for active ingredients.

Our products are developed in a state-of-the-art laboratory by KOKO, a German company at the forefront of Corneotherapy research and world-renowned for using only the purest ingredients. KOKO uses ground-breaking technology to create a range of creams and lotions without the addition of emulsifiers (which build up in the skin and dissolve skin lipids when exposed to water.)

dermaviduals® can be found in 40 countries world-wide, and is used exclusively by skin care specialists in both the esthetic and medical industry, in particular by those that specialize in Corneotherapeutic treatments.


Natural Ingredients

NO emulsifiers, fragrances, preservatives, dyes, silicones, PEGs, mineral oil, amines, or occlusive mineral substances.


Prescriptive Skin Care

Our skin is as unique as our fingerprints. Customization creates customer loyalty, and by analyzing and treating the skin individually, you can create an experience and products your clients can only get from you.


Cutting-Edge Delivery System 

The DMS® Base Creams are lamellar formulations that mimic the skin’s lipid barrier and provide the perfect conditions for active agents, like liposomes and nanoparticles, to work most effectively. By merging with the skin barrier layers, liposomes and nanoparticles open and release their active agents into the skin. DMS® then seals the lipid barrier while the active agents get to work. DMS® Base Creams, even without the addition of further active agents, show strong effects with regard to the skin’s smoothness and an increase of skin hydration.


Respect the Integrity of the Skin

The skin, our largest organ, is our first and best defense against external aggressors. When it is healthy, its many layers work hard to protect us, but when its condition is compromised, its ability to work as an effective barrier is impaired. The dermaviduals® creams contain the patented DMS® (Derma Membrane Structure), which resembles the bilayer structure of the Stratum Corneum and repairs damage from the environment or harsh skin care treatments or products.



These products are exclusively for skin care specialists, and cannot be sold online. Your clients will enjoy a unique, cost effective regimen with results based on scientific studies.


Backed by Science

dermaviduals® products have been put to the test in multiple clinical trials with published results.


Active Agents

dermaviduals® creams and gels can be customized with 38 different active ingredients. Choose from plant extracts, liposomes, nanoparticles, mono-substances, and skin-friendly oils to create an infinite variety of products and treatments.

Liposomes carry hydrophilic actives into the skin via a bilayer membrane of phosphatidylcholine, a natural ingredient found in our bodies. They fuse effortlessly with the lipid barrier to deposit their actives and deliver a dose of anti-inflammatory linoleic acid at the same time.

Nanoparticles*, or nano-dispersions, carry lipophilic actives into the skin via a monolayer membrane of phosphatidylcholine. These fluid nanoparticles provide an excellent delivery system for essential fatty acids and other oil-based substances. They fuse with the stratum corneum, allowing only the active ingredients to penetrate through the lipid bilayers into the epidermis, leaving the fluid nanoparticle itself behind.

*Unlike solid nanoparticles that penetrate through the skin and reach the blood stream, dermaviduals® only uses fluid, biodegradable nanoparticles that work in the skin and are encapsulated in bioavailable phosphatidylcholine.
