Sun, surf, sand…. They are a trifecta of fun for summer but also environmental elements that can take a serious toll on your skin. Adding insult to injury could be the use of products with harsh chemicals and less than pure ingredients. That’s where MyChelle Dermaceuticals comes in. The result? Natural goodness translates into naturally gorgeous, healthy skin. At the center of MyChelle’s core values are a focus on purity; a commitment to safe, effective products; and a dedication to sourcing unique plant-based ingredients from around the globe. As the frontrunner in bioactive beauty, MyChelle creates potent, nontoxic skincare solutions that blend natural, dermaceutical-grade and bioactive ingredients with up-to-date, clean technology for guaranteed visible results.
Founded in 2000, MyChelle has a full line of highly therapeutic cleansers, treatments, serums, toners, nourishing creams, sun protection, men’s products and body care developed to balance, nourish, and restore skin and its radiance from within. Kristine Carey, VP of Marketing, revealed the inspiration behind the innovative science. “We journey the world over searching for the most potent natural ingredients Mother Nature has to offer. Whether it’s the plant stem cells of Edelweiss from mountain tops or Buddleja from the rainforest, our sources for wild-crafted plants and hand-selected flowers reflect our stubborn pursuit of the highest-quality plant extracts and essences. We have a team of highly experienced researchers and developers that are constantly discovering and evaluating new and powerful ingredients.” Some of these global locales include treks to the Australian rainforest to source the Rainforest Harvest (found in the Fruit Fiesta Peel), a nutritional supplement consisting of a complex of three fruits – Lillypily, Lemon Aspen, and Davidsonia Plum; excursions to Eastern Asia for the Buddleja Plant Stem Cell (incorporated into the Perfect C Serum), a flowering shrub native to the area; and adventures right here in America, which is a primary source for Orange Peel, Pink Grapefruit, Sweet Orange, Tangerine, and Witch Hazel.
No matter where in the world you reside, to protect and perfect skin year-round – especially during summer months – MyChelle offers bioactive solar care that shields, repairs, and prevents UV rays from harming your skin. Perfect for every skin type, these products are safe alternatives to traditional, harsh chemical sunscreens. Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30 provides mineral-based protection loaded with marine bioactives to reduce sun damage and maintain moisture. The zinc oxide-based formula provides advanced anti-aging protection against damaging rays that lead to hyperpigmentation and photo-aging. A translucent chemical and physical protectant, ZinClear™, acts as a natural shield against both UVA and UVB. A blend of Kukui and Macadamia oils combine with Red Algae to smooth lines and wrinkles. Sun Shield SPF 28 (one of our faves!) blocks harmful UVA/UVB rays with ZinClear™ and Titanium Dioxide. It’s gentle enough for use even around the delicate eye area. Soothing Aloe and Vitamin E reduce sun-induced irritation and calm skin for an instant feel-better fix. This environmentally-safe, full-spectrum protection is available in unscented and coconut formulas to provide pure, natural coverage.
In addition to outstanding sun protection, MyChelle offers Vitamin A Plus Serum to repair the skin’s surface by accelerating cellular turnover for a youthful, even-toned appearance. This night time skin refining treatment combats the effects of sun exposure, improves texture, clarifies tone, and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. A nourishing combination of Vitamin A and antioxidants improves the texture and smoothness of rough, dull and congested skin. Key ingredients, Retinol and naturally derived Vit-A-Like™, resurface skin and clear pore blockage while restoring collagen. Argan oil, naturally high in fatty acids and Vitamin E, rejuvenates and nourishes skin while combating free-radicals for a healthy, clear complexion.
And speaking of clarity, the future looks very bright for MyChelle Dermaceuticals – and their devoted followers. Shining on the horizon is a focused line of sensitive products for 2013. “Sensitive skin affects millions of people, and our skin care products will help to ease inflammation and strengthen the barrier walls within the skin,” Kristine discloses. “The combination of ingredients will help build up the moisture reservoir in the skin and strengthen weakened capillaries. Overall, the goal is to help the skin be more resilient against irritation and environmental aggressors.”
