Here at Thistle and Rose, we practice 'corneotherapy" which focuses on the restoration, preservation and maintenance of one’s stratum corneum (top layer of skin) and the skin's barrier defence systems, while selected home care from your Skin Treatment Therapist along with in clinic treatment modalities are designed to preserve the integrity of your epidermis (the outer layer of skin) at ALL times.
The only brand of skincare that has been approved to fully comply with the corneotherapy philosophy is Dermaviduals, whom we have chosen to collaborate with to provide the most forward beauty care for your skin currently available not the market.
What Does Dermaviduals stand for?
Dermatological cosmetic with an individual concept.
Skin care that is formulated specifically for your skin.
NO conventional emulsifiers
NO mineral oils
To begin a Dermaviduals skin journey and purchase the products, you must aligned with a Dermaviduals Skin Therapist who prescribes your skincare for you. Please email us on to obtain a tailored prescription for your skins requirements.
Once you have commenced your new skin care regime, you may experience a period of transition as your skin caters for the new active ingredients it receives. Please read here to learn more about it.
We look forward to caring for you and your skin xx
The Dermaviduals Adjustment Phase
We have the ability to adapt Dermaviduals skincare products to the individual without any hype, unless of course one is new to the range then quite possibly there might be a few lumps and bumps along the way to your unique journey of skin health.
If your epidermis is not functioning as it should because of an underlying medical condition/medications, poor nutrition or you have been using skincare/makeup products that don't work with the physiology of the skin, then sadly the natural defence systems within your epidermis are slowly but surely deteriorating away; whether you can see physically see it happening or not.
Corneotherapy is designed to awaken your skin’s innate immunity by removing toxic waste matter from the largest organ of your body, and so if one has been using skincare with fragrances, emulsifiers, preservatives, parabens, silicones, amines, colours and dyes and you’re starting on a Dermaviduals home care prescription for the first time, then one can possibly experience any of the following:
-more congestion than usual
We would like to severely stress that not all clients when starting on Dermaviduals will experience this transition. If you have a huge cosmetic chemistry history for example, then there is a good chance that your skin is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Corneotherapy is a lifestyle choice and therefore, your responsibility to make sure that anything that touches your skin meets the criteria of Corneotherapy; yes, ladies (and gents), this also includes your makeup and fake tan!
Why you might ask? Dermaviduals has a very effective delivery system? Liposomes and Nanoparticles composed of Phosphatidylcholine will allow for non Corneotherapeutic matter (conventional skincare/makeup etc) to hitchhike their way past the stratum corneum, through the barrier defence systems of the epidermis to which then can trigger an onset immune system response! Please, don’t be a ‘chemist’ and mix your Dermaviduals products with any other skincare/makeup range that you might have within your bathroom. Absolutely 100% essential!
Lastly, Dermaviduals is extremely potent. And we mean it. When we recommend introducing slowly, GO LOW, GO SLOW, pretty pleeeease don’t be too gung ho and give yourself a red rash response because of misuse!!!
