Priced at the high end of the market, DermaLastyl-m is an aftershave that costs more than $40 (or you can buy the trio above for around $70). The marketing blurb claims it is worth every cent because you'll never need Botox (a growing habit amongst men). Given that recent studies on animals suggest that avoiding Botox (it enters the brain) is a good thing, it is worth taking a look at DermaLastyl-m.

The most interesting thing about DermaLastyl-m Aftershave is that one of the key ingredients is tropoelastin. Tropoelastin is a very complex amino acid that is the precursor to elastin (responsible for stretch in the skin). Because it is such a long chain of amino acids, it is difficult to imagine how it could be put in a tube, then smeared on the skin and penetrate to do the necessary job. Assuming DermaLastyl-m has worked this out, I am still disappointed to see that it is the very last ingredient in the list (implying it is used in a very small concentration).

Higher up the list is matrixyl 3000, a powerful anti-oxidant with a good pedigree. There is also sodium hyaluronate for retaining moisture and vitamins E and B. There is also something called Prolisel, an anti-oxidant that protects against UV light (although they don't say which kind). I'm less keen on the inclusion of Argireline, which I regard to be a waste of space.
