About the Dermatology Institute of America

OUR MISSION

Is not to take a weekend course.
At the Dermatology Institute of America, research is our primary focus. It is estimated that each member of our team has devoted between 60,000 to 90,000 hours of their careers to bench research and/or peer-reviewed journal or author investigation. We employ only board-certified dermatologists with additional advanced degrees or individuals with advanced degrees in fields directly related to dermatology.
Is to respect your time and money.
You’ll find that our products are designed to fit easily into your day, requiring minimal time, effort, and money.
Is not to follow the fads.
We recommend skin care that has been found to be superior in cellular biochemistry due to:

  • time-tested methodologies
  • internationally accepted standards
  • culturally sensitive mores
  • environmentally responsible stewardship
  • double-blinded, non-animal, placebo-controlled studies

as agreed upon by experts in the field of dermatology and related sciences.
