DMK believes that the origin of most skin conditions is a result of disharmony within the skin. Using the principles of biochemistry, DMK has formulated a range of treatments and products designed to educate skin to perform like youthful healthy skin. By matching formulations with the body’s chemistry, the skin is encouraged to respond in a positive manner. DMK’s revolutionary concept of REMOVE, REBUILD, PROTECT, MAINTAIN aims to match an individual’s biochemistry with the appropriate skin therapy. Botanical-based paramedical products make up the DMK skin care program.
Remove the dead skin cell build-up, which leads to the appearance of dry skin, fine lines, congested skin or skin discolouration. DMK uses enzymatic hydrolysation, a treatment that transforms dead cell material into a weak acid and flushes it away, bringing new skin cells to the surface.
Rebuild skin by encouraging the skin’s vital internal processes to function optimally, enabling cells to stay alive longer and perform at their highest potential, creating healthier, younger looking skin. DMK oils, serums, spritzes and crèmes work directly on the skin cells with DMK’s unique ‘direct delivery’. These are designed to provide natural skin tone and moisture.
Protect the skin from the sun, free radicals, glycation and other environmental factors that lead to premature ageing using potent natural antioxidants
Maintain beautiful skin with DMK Home Prescriptives which work to prolong the results achieved by DMK Professional Treatments. The DMK concept provides clients with lifelong skin management programs to incorporate into their daily lives.
Jane Iredale is the president and founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, a company she founded in 1994 which brought the mineral makeup line jane iredale to the aesthetic industry. She was the first to supply this industry with a line of makeup that had skin care benefits.
Jane has always thought of makeup as an essential part of a woman’s sense of well-being and she wanted to make that easy to achieve. That’s why her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one, and why every product in the line is multi-functional. Her goal is to make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin. Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.
The micronized mineral bases are concentrated pigment. (no use of fillers such as talc) Because of this concentrated pigment, a minimum amount gives unsurpassed coverage and becomes a foundation, powder and concealer all in one. This concentrated pigment also gives high sunscreen protection without the need for synthetic ingredients.
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and the FDA
Formulated with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, the minerals give instant, broad-spectrum, chemical-free sun protection. They also have a Very Water Resistant rating.
FAST, WEIGHTLESS COVERAGE
Apply with a brush or a sponge for coverage that it would normally take three products to achieve. The result will look sheer and luminescent and feel weightless.
NON-COMEDOGENIC AND OIL-FREE
Under a microscope, the mineral crystals look like overlapping fish scales. These crystals form a filter that allows the free exchange of gasses. The minerals are non-comedogenic. We have many testimonials from acne patients claiming improvement in their skins since using our mineral makeup. The only oils we use in our formulas are in products where we want to help condition the skin – such as in our under-eye concealer and lip products.
MINIMUM ALLERGY RISK
Allergies and sensitivities are usually caused by substances that cause irritation to the skin. Reactions are particularly common in skins that have been compromised in some fashion through, for example, a weakened immune system, sun damage, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, etc.
Substances that most commonly cause these sensitivities are chemical preservatives, chemical dyes (usually labeled as FD&C), perfume and alcohol. Our makeup contains none of these sensitizers. In fact, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are anti-inflammatories and may help calm the skin.
All of our products have undergone sensitivity testing in an FDA-approved laboratory with zero sensitivity recorded.
All our individual Material Safety Data Sheets of raw materials in our powder bases support that irritation, burning and stinging of the skin are not caused by our ingredients. Further, our processing does not result in any chemical change in the raw materials, so the reaction of the mixed ingredients remains the same as the individual ingredients. We have eliminated from our powders all perfume, chemical dyes and chemical preservatives. These are the top three sensitizers.
When the letters FD&C precede a colour, it means that the colour has been approved by the FDA for use in foods, drugs and cosmetics. When D&C precede the colour, it signifies that it can be used only in drugs or cosmetics. FD&C dyes are derived from petroleum or historically coal tar; some are also synthetic.
CONCENTRATED PIGMENT (COVERAGE)
The word “pigment” usually means a coloured or white compound that is insoluble in a solvent. (The word “dye” generally refers to a chemical compound, most often of petroleum origin, which is soluble.) Our pigments are made from micronized minerals only. The reason our powders work so well as a natural-looking beauty makeup and/or a camouflage is because the concentrated pigment not only masks colour but interacts with light to create a soft-focus effect that creates an illusion of perfection. A small amount of the minerals will cover most types of redness including acne, rosacea and erythema (redness).
Because of the micronization process our mineral particles undergo, they bind together on application. When applied to a clean, moisturized skin the surface tension this creates overcomes gravity and holds the minerals tightly to the skin. The result is that they resist running, creasing and smearing and will only come off with a cleanser or our Magic Mitt. No special cleanser is required.
Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have anti-inflammatory properties and will help to calm erythema. Zinc oxide is also anti-microbial.
NO PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN TESTED ON ANIMALS
Osaìne is a Luxury spa skincare range that has been specially formulated from live seaweeds and marine waters.
Extensive studies have proven that certain marine algae’s have the same composition as blood plasma and therefore when these algae’s are applied to the skin, the skin responds in a positive way. These seaweeds used in Osaine have shown improvement in the metabolism of cells and general functioning of the skin. When applied the skin is left looking healthier, well hydrated and more radiant.
