3. What Sets Us Apart?
4. The Tri-factor and List of Active Ingredients:
Our signature blend of active ingredients forms the basis for the brand's unique identity and distinct position within the current marketplace. Dermaquest's tri-factor illuminates the balance of protection, strength and regeneration of the skin through the powerful combination of peptides, antioxidants and plant stem cells. By stabilizing these vital ingredients together in each product, we ensure the promise of a highly functioning skin; simultaneously addressing a variety of complex skin concerns at a cellular level.
Plant stem cells
Botanical or plant stem cells function as the origin of vitality in the skin. Dermaquest's active and effective formulations are packed with the most advanced plant stem cell technology available in skin care today.
- How do they really work?
Plant stem cells are highly resilient and are able to withstand substantial damage while having the invaluable ability for self-regeneration. when we use plant stems cells topically, they help support our skin's natural processes (homeostasis) in a variety of ways and are mindfully targeted to address specific concerns, such as:
- reduce inflammation and sensitivity
- encourage collagen synthesis
- regulate pigmentation
Pairing plant stem cells with innovative and advanced delivery systems to guarantee maximum efficacy and visible results.
- List of stem cell plants we use and functions:
Each plant stem cell delivers 3 skin-loving benefits:

Peptides are chains of amino acids that form building blocks within the skin. there are 20 amino acids that can be used as the “peptide alphabet” and that run through the Dermaquest line. Combine two or more of these amino acids and link them, and you have started a peptide chain. these chains send specific messages that benefit the overall health and structure of the skin. Mix and match amino acids and you can create thousands of peptide combinations performing cell to cell communication that impact the skin on a multitude of levels.
- What messages do they send?
- promote collagen and elastin production - fibroblast activity
- increase firmness
- prevent muscle contraction
- reduce inflammation and puffiness
- thicken the dermal matrix
- even skin tone
- heal and repair

Pigment Improvement: Tego-Pep 4; Even B-White Peptide; Melanostatine 5
Reduces Puffiness: Rigin; SkinASensyl; Eyeseryl
Collagen Builders: Cyclotetrapeptide-24; Eyeliss & Regu-Age; Matrixyl; Matrixyl 3000; Matrixyl Synthe 6; BioPeptide C1; Syn-Coll; CS Peptide; IdeaLift; Dermaxyl
Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation (think rust). it all starts with molecules. a stable molecule has all of its electrons; however, environmental stress can cause a molecule to lose one or more of its electrons making that molecule unstable. This molecule called a 'free radical' becomes destructive to healthy living cells and tissue through a process called oxidative stress. antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation, to counteract the negative impact this process has on our bodies. antioxidants come in many forms such as vitamin e, vitamin a, plant stem cells and peptides, which all have potent antioxidant properties. Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant especially when paired with ferulic acid.
Dermaquest has take antioxidant protection to new heights, formulating with BVOSC, an oil soluble, highly stable form of vitamin C that can double collagen production in the skin and offers unparalleled free radicle protection.
- List of antioxidants and functions:
