Educational Series: Individual Lotion – A New Treatment Tonic Unique To You

by | 6 February 2024

When it comes to skincare formulations, the quest to find powerful ingredients that tick all the right boxes, is unending. Among the emerging stars in the realm of skincare is Saccharide Isomerate, a unique sugar complex that offers unparalleled hydration while supporting skin barrier health. It just so happens, that our latest product offering, Individual Lotion contains abundant amounts of this powerhouse ingredient which not only floods the skin with hydration but also supports the delivery of dermaviduals actives deep into the skin. Created with bespoke skincare at its core, the Individual Lotion provides the foundation for blends including Extracts, Liposomes, Nanoparticles, and Mono-Substances that are as unique as you are.

Saccharide Isomerate is the shining star in this NEW formulation. This natural humectant has the ability to bind to the skin, creating a moisture barrier that helps lock in hydration. Unlike traditional moisturising ingredients which may only offer temporary effects, Saccharide Isomerate provides long-lasting hydration and has a unique ability to mimic the natural carbohydrate complex found in the skin. This similarity allows it to integrate seamlessly with the skin’s own moisture-retaining mechanisms. By working in harmony with the skin’s natural processes, Saccharide Isomerate ensures optimal moisture balance, making it an ideal ingredient for those with dry skin or who experience impaired enzyme activity (dehydration).


Let’s look at the key components of Saccharide Isomerate.

Composed of natural sugars, including glucose, rhamnose, galactose, and glucuronic acid Saccharide Isomerate provides a multitude of benefits to support skin health and function along with providing support for a multitude of functions within the epidermis.


Glucose is a fundamental component of Saccharide Isomerate that plays a pivotal role in supporting cellular processes within the skin. It ensures an abundant supply of essential resources to support the optimal functionality of the skin barrier. By providing the necessary energy for cellular activities, glucose helps maintain the skin’s overall health and vitality. 


Rhamnose is included in the formulation for its antioxidant properties. It acts as an antioxidant, neutralising free radicals that can compromise the skin barrier defence systems. Not only does this sugar protect the skin from increased cellular damage but it also helps to promote healthy microbiome restoration resulting in reduced inflammation.


Galactose is incorporated to contribute to the maintenance of the skin’s moisture balance. It enhances overall hydration levels, promoting a supple and resilient skin barrier. Galactose’s moisturising properties play a crucial role in preventing dryness and supporting the skin’s ability to retain water along with providing additional anti-inflammatory benefits.

Glucuronic Acid:

Glucuronic acid plays a crucial role in stimulating the synthesis of hyaluronic acid (HA). The presence of glucuronic acid in Saccharide Isomerate contributes to the overall hydration and elasticity of the skin.

In addition, Saccharide Isomerate displays skin calming properties making the Individual Lotion a great option for those concerned with redness, irritation, or inflammation. With its anti-inflammatory benefits being boosted further by the inclusion of skin calming actives including Liposome Concentrate Plus, Complexion Skincare Liposomes Plus, Kigelia Liposome Concentrate or Boswellia Nanoparticles, the Individual Lotion is the perfect solution to address erythema and skin sensitivity.

The Individual Lotion is ideal to support skin barrier health and protection. Here at dermaviduals we know that a healthy barrier is crucial for maintaining overall skin health and resilience. The Individual Lotion contributes to this by strengthening the skin’s natural barrier function. Customising the Individual Lotion with barrier strengthening actives including Hyaluronan NAG Liposomes, Vitamin B Liposome Concentrate, Evening Primrose Oil Nanoparticles or Vitamin E Nanoparticles will further support the formation of a strong and resilient skin barrier.

The Individual Lotion is available in a compact 30ml spray bottle with 28mls of Lotion which can be customised with 2ml of active concentrates, providing a personalised skincare solution in every application. The easy-to-use spray application ensures a seamless experience, delivering intensive moisturisation while enhancing skin health and function.

The Individual Lotion can also be introduced to support the following –

  • Targeted Spot Treatment – Whether focused on age-management, acne, pigmentation, eczema, or psoriasis, this formulation is designed to adapt to and address a wide variety of skin concerns.

  • After Sun Barrier Restoration– As we enter the summer months, the Individual Lotion is a ‘go to’ for after sun care. Customised with Green Tea Extract and CM-Glucan this blend provides the perfect to support skin barrier restoration post sun exposure. Simply apply to the skin after cleansing and prior to the application of other dermaviduals formulations.

Apply Individual Lotion to ‘set’ your deco foundation.


  • All Day Skin Hydrator– Poor enzyme function due to a lack of free water, can leave the skin feeling rough, tight, and flaky. Individual Lotion fortified with Hyaluronan NAG Liposomes and Laminaria Digitata Liposome Serum provide the boosted hydration the skin requires to actively reduce the signs of dehydration. Apply this blend throughout the day as the skin requires.
