Unlike most skin care companies, DermaMedics had its origins in a skin biochemistry research laboratory at the medical school of a major university.


Dr. Fuller received his B.S. degree from The University of Michigan and his Ph.D. in Cell Biology and Biochemistry from the University of Arizona specializing in molecular endocrinology. Dr. Fuller was a professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center for over 20 years until retiring in 2007 to devote his full-time efforts to developing topical dermatology products that could help improve common skin problems. His interest in identifying natural compounds that could effectively treat skin diseases was the result of watching his father battle psoriasis.

While watching his father go through various treatments, none of which provided long-term relief, Dr. Fuller developed a “drug screening” program in his lab that was similar to those used by pharmaceutical companies to discover new prescription dermatology drugs. However instead of developing and screening synthetic drugs, Dr. Fuller focused on screening natural compounds. The end result of this 4-year screening program was the discovery of a “family” of naturally occurring “super antioxidant” compounds that were potent inhibitors of various inflammatory mediators that cause skin problems. This technology is made available, under license, to pharmaceutical companies developing products to treat skin problems.

This same science-based approach to understanding skin biology, led to the creation of DermaMedics.

Dr. Fuller's research has led to the issuance of 21 U.S. Patents as well as 9 international patents, filed to protect their use in topical dermatology products, including RX, OTC and cosmetic skin care products. Dr. Fuller has conducted research and has consulted to companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Procter and Gamble, Unilever, Nu Skin, and Wella. His research has received support from the NIH, NSF, Procter and Gamble, and Wella, AG. Dr. Fuller has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles on pigmentation and inflammation, as well as articles & reviews on the development of topical products for regulating pigmentation and controlling inflammation. Dr. Fuller sits on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology and the journal, Cosmetics, and has been a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the Society of Investigative Dermatology, the American Society for Cell Biology, the PanAmerican Society for Pigment Cell Research, and the Endocrine Society.

uniquely engineered to address specific skin concerns

In addition, the rigorous approach to skin science that Dr. Fuller developed many years ago is used by DermaMedics to create highly beneficial skin care products that contain patented “super antioxidant” technology. Because of our worldwide patents no other company can incorporate these natural antioxidant compounds into their own products.

Only DermaMedics products contain this novel skin care technology.

DermaMedics’ products contain proprietary and patented “small molecule actives” (SMA). These are powerful natural antioxidants that can inactivate skin damaging free radicals and by doing so provide many unique benefits that nurture the skin and help it achieve a healthy, youthful appearance. 

Whether your skin is damaged by natural aging, by environmental factors such as wind, sun or pollution, or by skin problems such as, eczema, rosacea, acne psoriasis or burns, our products are specifically designed with the mildest ingredients. 

Unlike most other skin care companies, DermaMedics products do not contain crude plant “extracts” containing hundreds of unknown chemicals that can cause skin sensitization. DermaMedics designs and tests every formulation on human skin to not only optimize effectiveness, but to ensure sure that each formulation is extremely gentle and soothing when applied to skin regardless of the skin condition.

After all, building an effective skin care product is not a mystery: it simply requires following three basic steps in product development.


DermaMedics uses a common sense approach to developing each product. While not the least expensive or fastest method for designing skin care products, by adhering to three basic steps in formulation development, DermaMedics products offer unmatched performance.

1) Use ingredients in the product that have been scientifically proven to improve skin appearance.

2) Use a precise and optimal amount of these ingredients in the formulation.

3) Design the formulation to deliver the beneficial ingredients efficiently to the skin's surface when applied topically.
