There are currently 13 Sciote products available in the Truth In Aging store, and I predict that the Micro Derm Crème ($60) will most likely be the 14th and a welcome new addition. This crème is outstanding and does what it is meant to do, even on the very first time of usage! Not only did my skin feel velvety smooth with the pores amazingly tightened and greatly reduced in size, but it also appeared vibrant and glowing.
For my mature 50-plus combination skin, which is soon approaching another milestone, I was hoping for this product to be an effective exfoliating cream that gently scrubs away dead skin cells and any dirt that may have stubbornly remained after cleansing. I used my tiny spatula to scoop out just about 1/4 teaspoon of this thick white grainy crème and gently rubbed it in circular motions for about one or two minutes all over my face. Immediately after rinsing, my skin felt invigorated and perfectly prepped for application of moisturizers and make-up. My skin’s smooth and soft texture is noticeable even on the days when I don’t use it (I only use it once or twice a week).
Based on my research (referencing mostly TIA’s database information), Micro Derm Crème contains natural ingredients that are recognized to be highly beneficial for the skin: 4 % shea butter; hemp seed oil, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and also helps reduce pore size, blackheads and acne; avocado oil, which is high in “sterolin,” a substance known to soften skin and reduce hyperpigmentation; grapeseed oil, which is a natural antioxidant rich in vitamin E and also moisturizing; jojoba oil, which has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties; natural emollients such as capric triglycerides, vegetable glycerine, that are soothing skin conditioning agents; stearic acid and cetyl alcohol, which are emulsifiers used to bind and thicken the cream; and lastly, caprylyl glycol, an antimicrobial skin conditioning agent combined with phenoxyethanol to preserve the formula.
The Sciote Advanced Micro Derm Crème comes in a 4-oz jar, so with the once or twice a week usage, it will probably last at least six months or more. Priced at $60, some may say it’s a high-end exfoliant. Though it is good for most skin types, it is not specifically meant for use on skin that is sensitive and acne prone. I would not hesitate to recommend Sciote Advanced Micro Derm Crème for those who want smooth radiant skin!
