Why Dermablend is different

Do you know how safe makeup is for your skin? Unless you’re the type to do your own research, you probably don’t. What if you could avoid all that research? It’s important to know that the makeup you choose was developed to offer great coverage while protecting your skin’s health.

Dermablend was founded in 1981 by dermatologist Craig Roberts and his wife, Flori Roberts, a renowned makeup artist. Available products were so limited that the couple was inspired to combine makeup and dermatology to provide safe, instant coverage for every skin type, tone and condition. Dermablend offers the power of choice, giving customers an easy-to-use option to “conceal while they heal”, safely and effectively.

Today, Dermablend is the number one recommended coverage brand by dermatologists. The brand is also a favourite among professional makeup artists for their array of coverage and finish options along with long-lasting wear.

If you wear makeup every day, this means you won’t have to choose between complexion-perfecting products and your skin’s health. You won’t have to search for the terms “acne-safe,” “rosacea-friendly” or “camouflage” while shopping because all these benefits are included in Dermablend’s products.


Dermablend meets strict Skin Security StandardsTM that apply to each of its products. Dermatologist standards: Dermablend products are all dermatologist-tested for safety, sensitive skin-tested, allergy-tested and non-comedogenic (they won’t clog pores). Our products are safe for all skin types, whether you’re dealing with acne, rosacea, scars, sensitivity, vitiligo or are healing from a professional treatment. Formula standards: Product ingredients and formulas are getting a lot of extra attention these days –and ours are developed to be free of anything questionable without sacrificing performance. Our vegan-friendly makeup is PETA-certified, cruelty-free and free of potentially irritating or harmful ingredients like parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, fragrance and phthalates.

Safe and high-performance pigments

Foundations and concealers rely on pigments to provide complexion coverage, whether you’re looking to conceal acne, discoloration, redness, other skin imperfections or tattoos. Dermablend’s product line uses high-performance pigments derived from iron oxides, which are naturally derived mineral deposits that are considered safe and non-toxic. These pigments can resist moisture, smearing and fading, while providing lasting coverage that matches the tone. While most foundations contain four pigments (white, black, red and yellow), Dermablend uses an extra ultra-marine pigment that allows us to offer a wider set of tones, including the deepest of skin tones, without compromising the finish.

Pro tip: Dermablend indicates the level of coverage in each product with the percentage of pigment. The Cover Care Full Coverage Concealer, for example, has a 30% concentration that offers one-coat, transfer-resistant coverage for acne, discoloration, dark circles and birthmarks. Our Flawless Creator™ Lightweight Foundation’s simple formulation provides a light and full coverage with 33% high-performance pigment. Our Cover Creme has 40% pigment in a creamy and moisturizing formula that supports the skin barrier while covering anything from acne to vitiligo.

When you choose Dermablend, you can be sure that every product is safe for your skin and designed with your skin’s optimal health in mind. All you have to do is focus on your desired finish, coverage or formulation type – and let us do the rest.
