How Dr.TWL Dermaceuticals Stands Out
Dr. Teo Wan Lin is an accredited dermatologist and an expert on cosmeceutical skincare research and development. She is the author of “Skincare Bible – Dermatologist’s Tips for Cosmeceutical Skincare” which was published July 2019 by leading bookstores Barnes & Noble, Baker & Taylor and Apple Books. She is also the founder of Dr.TWL Pharmacy, the first dermatologist led, one-stop specialised skincare pharmacy concept to launch in Singapore. The full fledged skincare pharmacy emphasises a Custom Mask Bar System, a subscription based complete home aesthetics treatment system developed by the Dr.TWL Team.
There are quite a few clinical skincare brands in the market—- and dermatologists are familiar with the few that have been clinically tested and used in their offices.
A lot of mass market skincare is not targeted at patients with actual skin concerns, such as those seen in a dermatologist practice. Some may say that if their skin is pretty normal and they just need a fashionable anti-ageing cream — just any brand claiming to have anti-ageing properties would suffice, there’s no need for a clinical formulation for sensitive skin.
Our founder Dr. Teo Wan Lin describes the gap in the market, “From a dermatologist’s perspective, that’s not true, a correctly formulated cosmeceutical product is the only one that would be effective, and the same product would be well tolerated by both sensitive and normal skin— this is the kind of product that would be stocked in my office. It is key to understand that a lot of proven anti-ageing ingredients cause irritation in general, and a dermatologist’s formula would minimise the interactions of ingredients that can have adverse effect on skin.”
1. Formulation by an accredited Singaporean dermatologist
Dr. Teo Wan Lin specialises in cosmeceutical skincare research and development
2. Optimal quality control with elite standards for cosmeceutical manufacturing
Certified EUROISO22716 Production Facilities , the gold standard in cosmeceutical manufacturing in an accredited biotechnology laboratory quality controls overseen by a trained pharmaceutical engineer, with regular clinical and laboratory audits of product formulation and efficacy conducted
3. Unique Partnership with one of the top dermatologist clinics in Singapore
Partnership with TWL Specialist Skin & Laser Centre for up to date product research and development based on market skincare needs
4. Pre-Launch Clinical Efficacy Testing and Assessment
Each product is tested and assessed as part of product development protocol prior to mass market launch
5. Emphasis on Clean Botanical Derived Cosmeceuticals – Retinol and Hydroquinone Free
Traditional dermatologist prescription topicals are laden with retinoids/retinoid derivatives and depigmenting chemicals such as hydroquinone, which can all cause skin irritation redness and sensitivity
6. State-of-the-Art Molecular Engineering for Synthetic Cosmeceuticals that work on Cellular DNA Levels
Our evidence based active ingredient is the oligopeptide molecule, the star ingredient in our cosmeceuticals. It stimulates collagen formation and encourages cellular dispersion of pigmentation. It replaces toxic ingredients like hydroquinone and retinoids, making it much better for sensitive skin
7. Anti-ageing formulations without Skin Irritation
Most if not all clinically active anti-ageing formulas rely on a mixture of skin exfoliating acids Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) and retinols to treat Surface wrinkles. Our anti-ageing formulations are AHA/BHA, Retinol Free— we rely instead on a proprietary triple complex mix of botanical anti-oxidant Larecea™ and oligopeptides incorporated into anti-inflammatory purified deep sea mineral water base.
How Dr.TWL Triple Anti-Ageing Complex works on Sensitive Skin
Larecea ™ penetrates the epidermis to activate cellular regeneration, the power packed oligopeptides then move in to the cellular DNA components to encourage collagen formation and pigment dispersion. Purified deep sea mineral water base is used as the ideal vehicle to calm sensitive ageing skin.
