In a qualitative research study it was revealed that a sample of South African women feel that skincare is a vital part of one’s womanhood. The appearance of their skin affects the way they see themselves and the way others perceive them, which in turn affects their confidence. This ties in with a recent study which found that only 2% of women are comfortable with describing themselves as “beautiful”?

Studies also suggest that the way your skin looks plays a large role in your self-esteem, and that people who suffer from skin problems are at greater risk of developing psychological problems.

Demelan® is a skincare brand that understands the connection between healthy skin and a woman’s confidence. Their range of skincare products aims to help women enhance what they see in the mirror, resulting in a happier, more confident self-image.

In South Africa we’re plagued by concerns of uneven skin tone. Women make up 90% of people affected by uneven skin tone and the issue is most common in women with naturally darker skin. Demelan® Even Skin Tone Cream is recommended by dermatologists and addresses uneven skin tone often caused by sun damage or hormonal fluctuations as a result of oral contraceptives, pregnancy or menopause. Results can be seen within 4 weeks*. 

Demelan® Even Skin Tone Cream can be found in the beauty aisles of most pharmacies.

The Demelan® Acne range is a multi-action range that shows results comparable to prescription medicines despite it being available over the counter. It has the additional benefits of treating and unclogging skin, as well as reducing redness and inflammation.

Demelan® Face Sunscreen Lotion is a broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50 that can be used in conjunction with either of the two creams, and will protect the skin from sun damage. It’s formulated with ingredients that filter, absorb and scatter the sun’s harmful UV rays.

The Demelan® range can be found at Clicks stores and leading pharmacies nationwide in the beauty aisle, and at Dis-Chem’s over the counter division.
