Hi Doctor

What is you opinion on Dermactin-TS, including the wrinkle filler?

Also, do you think it is worth spending money on these type of wrinkle fillers (L' Oreal also makes one) for cosmetic purposes?

Thank you

Hi Lindie, thank you for the question.

The Dermactin-TS line includes a variety of products, including a stretch mark complex, hand treatment, facial brightener, regenerating lotion, age spot serum, wrinkle filler and anti-wrinkle eye cream.
My first concern is that I am unable to find any information about the company due to the fact that Dermactin-TS does not appear to have an official online presence.

I find that a lack of information about a company or a product is a significant concern for those shopping for a line of skin care products especially when the product claims to have anti-ageing properties. Most companies that are confident in the formulas they provide and in the business dealings of their company are willing to disclose all necessary information on a company website that includes ingredient lists and customer testimonials.
Furthermore, the ingredient listed for their stretch mark cream (see below) does not contain any specific ingredient not found in the various other stretch mark removal products on the market today.
So in summary I would avoid this product and other similar non substantiated products that claim to work but do not have any medical studies (not performed in a lab) that prove the ‘anti-ageing’ claims.
