hey sS’ers, lots of changes with manufacturers these days it seems. our latest shipment of the derma-e hyaluronic and pycnogenol eye cream came in a newly designed box, which signals change. often times, manufacturers will loop new formulation AND packaging changes together, to use up excess packaging that’s purchased in large quantities far in advance.
upon closer inspection of the ingredient list, derma-e has replaced an acne-safe emulsifier, “glyceryl stearate”, with a non-acne-safe one, called “glyceryl stearate SE”. tricky because they are so similar, but thanks to us, your acne detectives, we’ve caught the culprit!
for your reference, above you’ll find a picture of the old packaging with the SAFE formula, and the new packaging with now unsafe-acne formula, which we would recommend you avoid if you are at all acne prone, especially on your upper cheeks or temples.
until we research, test and find a suitable cream replacement, we suggest max + jane’s lovely eye nutrient. it’s an ultra-rich, silky gel that provides hydration, protection and rejuvenation within a beautiful, all natural formula. we sell this at the clinic and in our online shop for $34.95. (ps, this eye serum is made by our clinic manager, liesse’s mom, in new mexico!)
here are the max + jane’s eye nutrient ingredients:
vegan hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, cucumber hydrosol, vegetable glycerin, jasmine sambac, rosemary, xanthum gum, silk peptides, calendula oil, and carrot seed oil.
thanks for supporting us, your patience with our research, and your continued trust in us!
