Interest in clean and natural beauty has skyrocketed in the last year alone, leaving inquiring minds with a laundry list of hard-hitting questions: What products should I be using? Which brands are trust-worthy? And one of the more obvious ones: Will it work?

Like any skin-related query, we could spend an entire afternoon down a rabbit hole on Google trying to figure it out on our own, or we could trust an expert’s opinion. After asking all of the clean-beauty questions, there was one dermatologist-recommended brand that stood out: DERMA-E.

“I’ve recently noticed a shift in what my patients are demanding from their skin care solutions—they're looking for safer, cleaner and non-toxic ingredients," says San Francisco, CA dermatologist Diana Camarillo, MD. "In finding DERMA-E, I found a skin care line that can deliver similar results as more traditional, chemically driven skin care formulas.”

DERMA-E is 100-percent vegan, non-GMO, cruelty-free, soy-free and gluten-free and their products have the ultimate seal of approval: Dermatologists actually use and recommend it.

Rooted in the concept of “Proven Clean Beauty,” every bottle is packed with nature's best ingredients and targeted vitamin solutions to create effective, skin-loving formulas that are not only safe for us, but environmentally sustainable, too.

It's tough to pick a favorite from the line—the brand currently offers more than 50 skin-perfecting products that range from hair care to skin care—but we're partial to the brightening Vitamin C Concentrated Serum ($24.50). Crafted with stable vitamin C and skin-plumping, vegan hyaluronic acid, this effective multi-tasking product not only leaves skin looking more radiant while lessening hyperpigmentation, but the all-star hydrating ingredient transforms dry, sandpaper-like skin into pillow-soft, dewy skin we only dreamed of.

But don't just take our word for it—the experts love it, too. "DERMA- E’s Vitamin C line is made with a potent, stable form of vitamin C that’s readily absorbed by the skin," says Dr. Camarillo. "It also has probiotics, which help to restore the skin’s microbiome and rooibos, which is another antioxidant.”

If you're interested in taking the clean-beauty plunge, take DERMA-E for a test drive—doctor's orders.
