Behind every bail out there is the opportunity to find a bargain. Derma e Peptides Plus deserves seeking out even at the original price of $43.50, but at the current special offer on of $25.97 it qualifies for a stampede.

I've been trying it out for the last couple of weeks and am impressed. It's better than many potions at twice the price. Peptides Plus is mostly based on the antioxidant peptide, Matrixyl, and the peptide that relaxes muscle movement called Argireline and it does a good job of moisturizing and smoothing the skin.

Derma e is a family-owned firm that tries to focus on natural ingredients and a couple of the botanicals in Peptides Plus are USDA certified organic. These are green tea and jojoba oil.

Although not organically sourced, I like the inclusion of pinus pinaster (French maritime pine), which is full of proanthocyanidins. These flavenoids are the principal polyphenols in red wine, responsible for its antioxidant properties. There are studies that show that proanthocyanidins' antioxidant capabilities are 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times more than vitamin E.

There is a silicone and a dab of phenoxyethanol, but otherwise there is everything to like about Derma e. It's not a miracle worker, but a good cosmetic work horse that won't put too much strain on your flexible friend.

Ingredients in Derma e

    If you are allergy prone, be careful! Natural or not, you might have a reaction you may not have anticipated! For example, mannitol has been used to stabilize almost all of the Multiple Sclerosis products that we inject. Short story- they do not use it anymore! Many of us thought it was the injectable itself, but no. It was a reaction to the mannitol! Same with one of the eye patches with Matryxl. It had chitosan. Whatever the source, chitosan is related to shellfish and hard shelled insects. None of that wonderful eye patch for me! You are so good on this site for the discussion of what’s really in a product! Thank you.
