At DermalYouth, we are committed to protecting youthful skin against sun damage and creating a skincare routine for children that is as regular and easy to remember as brushing the teeth. From the products we offer to the ingredients we use in our formulas, every detail is of our line is considered from a safety, quality, and efficacy perspective, which is why when it comes to your child’s skin, we have chosen a cocktail of supernatural ingredients that you can trust on youthful skin. Our two primary moisturizers, borage oil and shea butter, are skin superstars so read on to find out more!
Just like adults, children’s skin needs protection from outside elements. Sunlight, wind, extreme heat and cold—all of these and more have the potential to leave skin feeling red, burnt, dry, tight, and irritated, which is why using daily moisturizer is so critical. A first line of defense against dehydration, moisturizer also helps deliver anti-aging and softening ingredients to the skin that are proven to help prevent sunburn (extremely important), nourish and hydrate (also extremely important), and help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging (not so important for young children now…but very important as they age!)
A Closer Look at Borage Oil and Shea Butter
Rich in antioxidants and gamma linolenic acid, which is an essential fatty acid known to help alleviate and improve dry skin conditions, borage oil is one of the primary moisturizing ingredients we use in DermalYouth products. A leafy green plant with beautiful star-shaped blue flowers that has medicinal and skincare benefits, borage oil comes from the seed of the borage plant and has been used in skincare preparations for decades to help promote hydrated, soft, beautiful skin that glows with health.
Shea butter is sourced from the karite tree, or more precisely, extracted from the nut of the fruit of this tree. A rich and creamy substance that absorbs quickly and is safe for even the most sensitive skin, shea butter deeply moisturizes, soothes, and helps soften all the dry areas of the skin. Both shea butter and borage oil are known for being very effective against chronic skin conditions such as eczema, cradle cap in infants, and other dry skin issues. And when applied topically in a moisturizer, can help soothe irritation and redness associated with these conditions, hydrate dehydrated skin tissues, soften areas of flakey, cracked skin, such as on the hands, elbows and heels, and deeply nourish.
A Skincare System with Kids in Mind
Because both of these ingredients offer incredible healing properties and are safe for use even on infants, we include them in our Day & Night Children’s Skincare System as well as all of our SPF formulas: SPF30 Vanishing Face Serum and Body Lotion, SPF60 Hydro Pure Lotion, SPF60 Super Stick, and SPF30 Lip Saver. When used daily, the moisturizers and SPF products from DermalYouth help protect and nourish your child’s skin against the common irritants they encounter while outside playing, walking the dog, waiting for the boss, or at weekend sporting events and games. By formulating with proven, supernatural ingredients from around the globe, and ensuring every product is dermatologist and pediatrician tested and approved, we have created a line of skincare that is as effective as it is safe, and parents can trust. Many experts believe skin cancer starts when we are children, which is why it is essential to get a head start on your child’s skin health by using moisturizing, nourishing, and protective products from the time they are little all the way until they are 18 years old and older. DermalYouth has taken the guesswork out of our system by creating a two-step process that takes only minutes to apply, and is as easy to remember as tooth brushing. Even a kid can love that!
