pHformula

Target at the specific needs of our four identified skin disorders ranging from ageing, hyperpigemtation, redness to acne-prone skin, key ingredients are applied to the skin combined with acids and our unique delivery vehicle complex, PH-DVCTM. All the elements together, deliver protons  to the different layers of the skin in a controlled manner. This release of protons result in accelerated cell turnover and optimum skin regeneration with no downtime.

MELA

Hyperpigmentation refers to patches of skin that become darker than the surrounding areas of skin. It occurs when the skin produces excess melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. It can affect people of all skin types.

The M.E.L.A. skin resurfacing system contains a powerful blend of active ingredients which assists in even and controlled penetration.Most appropriate to help achieve superior improvement of hyperpigmentation spots in all skin types.

CR

Chronic redness refers to a constant ‘flushed’ or ‘blushing’ effect on the skin and can be caused by multiple factors. It can affect people of all skin types.

The C.R. skin resurfacing system is active and effective for chronic redness and selected rosacea type of skin. Specifically formulated with anti-microbial activity to help reduce redness and prevent relapses.

AGE

Ageing is an innevitable process which refers to the skins loss in elasticity, collagen production, and production of natural oils which results in the appearance of wrinkles, looser and sallow skin. It can affect people of all skin types.

The A.G.E. skin resurfacing system is an active and effective programme which targets typical signs of ageing like photo-ageing, pigment changes, dull sallow appearance, superficial and medium expression lines.

AC

Acne refers to an imflammatory disorder of the skin which results in the pores of your skin become clogged by hair, sebum, bacteria and dead skin cells. It can affect people of all skin types.

The A.C. skin resurfacing system effectively penetrates the pores to assist in dissolving impactions and help control microbial proliferation in acne prone skin. The solution offers anti-inflammatory benefits along with a strong keratolytic action to help normalise problematic skin.

PH-DVCTM

PH-DVC™ (delivery vehicle complex) – Is an advanced delivery complex used in the pHformula formulations to enhance the penetration of active ingredients. It is composed of an advanced delivery system, a soothing element and a cell activator complex named Respiderm. Respiderm assists to increase cellular oxygenation as well as wound healing promoting collagen and elastin synthesis. Cell activity is enhanced while having a soothing effect. Respiderm can potentiate the activity of other active ingredients.

I-VI

The most used Fitzpatrick skin phototype, was developed based in an individual’s skin colour and their tendency to tan or burn when exposed to sunlight. It is also indicative of how much melanin / pigment is present.

Skin with very little melanin has little protection from the sun’s UV rays and are likely to burn quickly. When the skin burns, it increases the risk of cancer.

Skin with higher melanin content is better protected against the sun’s UV rays but can develop hyperpigmentation much easier.

Phototype classifications can also be indicative of their skin’s response to active ingredient application.

A common misconception is that a darker phototype is not as sensitive as a lower phototype, but the opposite is true. Even though skin response in a darker phototype cannot be seen as easily (the development of erythema or redness), it can be highly sensitive to active ingredient application.

pHformula’s S.P complex sensitivity test, allows us to safely determine the phototypes response, not only visually but on a sensorial level. This comprehensive understanding enables us to address the unique needs, concerns, and solutions for all phototypes.
