What is Corneotherapy?

  What is Corneotherapy?

Central to the philosophy of dermaviduals is corneotherapy – the science of maintaining and restoring healthy skin.

Corneotherapy is aimed at the recovery of the stratum corneum, but above all it improves the function of the skin barrier and subsequently the overall homeostasis of the skin.

We can reduce trans-epidermal water loss, ensuring external aggravating factors are held at bay and the effectiveness of the dermal membrane structure is assured.

Utilising DMS base creams and or a base gel allows us to individually adapt creams, masks, packs and lotions with active agent concentrates such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, vitamin A and many more, to treat and correct particular skin conditions.


The care of the Stratum Corneum, and topical therapies with products that mimic skin structure and function. An innovated and progressive methodology of thinking with core principles of the correction and restoration of the stratum corneum and barrier defence systems, while keeping the epidermis intact at all times. A methodology of thinking and skin treatment therapy that preserves the integrity of the epidermis at all times. This is achieved by using preventative interventions that are primarily directed to correction and restoration of the stratum corneum and barrier defence systems. This approach leads to homeostasis and the improved function of the entire integument; protecting against harmful substances and microorganisms while keeping the epidermis intact at all times.
