Every skin and body care product used by the professional staff at Apiderm is developed under a set of strict guidelines. Our guidelines ensure each product delivers the results you demand - and the clear, resilient and beautifully healthy-looking skin you deserve.

We Use Performance Ingredients at Effective Levels
We use effective dose levels of performance-proven ingredients. We stabilize the fragile ingredients (Vitamins A and C or antioxidant-rich plant extracts) to make sure they retain potency. In addition, we use special delivery vehicles, liposomes, that enhance penetration - so you experience dramatic results.

We Use Plant & Mineral Sources
Whenever possible, we select plant or mineral-derived ingredients, not those from animals or petroleum. We choose multi-functional antioxidants, clinically-tested peptides and plant extracts, stabilized vitamins and phyto-nutrients and other performance ingredients proven bio-effective in scientific studies - then we use these high performance ingredients at the same concentration used in the studies. We protect the integrity of these ingredients in the finished products so you see results.

We Use Drug-Free Solutions
Many cosmetic companies rely on over the counter drugs to treat common skin problems. Apiderm products use a gentle, drug-free approach to achieve great looking skin. With the exception of our sunscreens, our products are drug-free. Our product development team uses highly effective, non-drug solutions for problems like acne-prone skin, sensitive skin, irritation, dryness, chronic redness, aging and skin discoloration. Using drug-free products enable you to see results without the discomfort or side effects that can be caused by many over the counter drugs.

We Don't Use Harsh Ingredients
We never use:

  • Sodium Laurel
  • Laureth Sulfates
  • Mineral Oil
  • Bovine-Sourced Ingredients
  • Lanolin
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Formaldehyde-releasing preservatives (imidazolidinyl urea, diazolidinyl urea, quatemium-15, DMDM hydatoin, 2-bromo-2-nitropropae-1, 3-diol. Other companies commonly use these ingredients although they are known to cause skin sensitivity)

We avoid:

  • Petrolatum
  • Solvent alcohols
  • Synthetic color
  • Synthetic fragrance
  • Comedogenic ingredients ... We only use gentle preservatives when necessary

We limit the use of emulsifiers (they make dry and sensitive skin more irritable)

  • Stearic acid
  • Stearyl Alcohol
  • Glyceryl stearate

We do, however, add soothing ingredients even when irritation isn't a problem because science has now proven chronic inflammation is the bottomline of aging!!

We're Cruelty-Free
We only test our products on humans to make sure our products work!

We Do Extensive Product & Ingredient Testing
Apiderm products are subjected to some of the most thorough testing of any skin care available. Broad-spectrum microbiology, heat, cold and light stability, and container compatibility are tested before any product is released to wear our label. Other test and ingredient assays are also performed as required to ensure maximum product stability ad efficacy.

Dermatologist Tested
Products developed for sensitive skin undergo one month of Repeat Insult Patch Testing on 50 subjects, which is reviewed and approved by board-certified dermatologists prior to the product's release
to market.

Ophthalmologist Approval Products used around the eyes are subjected to pre-market testing and approval by qualified ophthalmologists.

Ingredient Efficacy Testing
Our ingredient suppliers are required to provide proof of efficacy before we review an ingredient for use in our products.
