The Ethos of DDF Skincare

Introducing DDF Skincare, the first prestigious skincare brand to focus in on real skincare concerns. The company is renowned for its Cleanse, Protect, and Treat approach to the science of flawless skin. Over the years customers have been thrilled with the results.

The brand was founded long before dermatologic skincare brands were all the rage. Today, DDF Skincare founders Dr. Howard Sobel, M.D., P.C., F.A.A.C.S., and Elaine Linker run the brand. Together they produce innovate skincare products that are designed on trusted medical practices.

Created with cellular and nutritional science background, DDF Skincare formulations offer quick results helping to correct existing damage to the skin and preventing further skin issues.

Going back to the company’s roots, HDS Cosmetic Lab, Inc, was created in 1991 by prestigious dermatologist Dr. Howard Sobel, M.D. His aim was to offer his patients over-the-counter solutions that provided effective and professional results without the need for having to hunt down a prescription.

Two years later, in 1993, Elaine Linker joined DDF Skincare hoping to create a skincare brand that provides a solution to the requirements of women and men that are dreaming of healthy, clear, and beautiful skin.

Armed with their skincare expertise, the pair coined the Cleanse, Protect, and Treat method of looking after the skin. This protocol focuses in on preventing and restoring aged skin, clearing acne and blemishes, caring for sensitive and allergic skin, hyperpigmentation, and looking after the whole body.

Select Skincare ingredients

DDF Skincare has a carefully curated selection of key skincare ingredients that they use in their products for healthy and glowing skin. Let’s go over some of their select skincare ingredients. We'll also highlight some recommendations of products featuring these super-ingredients.

Vitamin Peptide Complex

Products created by DDF Skincare featuring vitamin peptide complex contain the skincare ingredients Vitamin B3, otherwise known as niacinamide and promatrixyl pentapeptide. These work to exfoliate and hydrate the skin, reducing the look of fine lines and minimizing the appearance of pores.

DDF’s Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer is one of the brand’s best products featuring vitamin peptide complex. It works to reduce the look of pores while simultaneously exfoliating and hydrating the skin to combat the appearance of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines. Say hello to young and more flawless looking skin.

To use, apply to your face and neck each morning and be sure to avoid getting it into eyes.

Vitamin Humectant Complex

Feed thirsty skin with DDF products that are packed full of vitamin humectant complex, which contains the skin-loving vitamins A and E along with glycerin. Such formulas work to hydrate tired and dry skin, offering calming moisturization to help it heal.

Noticed crow’s feet and fine lines around your eyes? Try DDF’s Nourishing Eye Cream. The super-light and easily absorbed formula offers ultra-rich results, gifting the delicate eye area with moisture. This, in turn, helps soften and smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

The eye cream is suitable for all skin types. To use, gently pat a small amount around the eye area and use both morning and night.

DDF’s Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew is another of the brand’s top products featuring vitamin humectant complex. The moisturizer is free of oils, fragrances, and dyes and is suitable for all types of skin, including acne-prone.

Featuring a base of soothing aloe vera, the formula is jam-packed with vitamins A, C, and E, along with grape seed. And don’t worry, as the solution is ultra-light and oil-free, hydration is non-greasy, and the product won’t clog up pores.

The moisturiser can be used on any area of the body in need. For the best results, use every day.

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid is a popular skincare ingredient and today it’s found in many products that aim to reduce the appearance of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and other types of blemishes. Head to your local pharmacy and you’re sure to spot plenty of products lined up on the shelves featuring salicylic acid.

DDF Acne Control Treatment is a salicylic acid night acne medication that fights, controls, and reduces acne. The product features a clarifying neutralizing complex of skin conditioners and glycerine that calms and soothes skin, helping restore balance. Look forward to skin that’s clearer, smoother, and healthier and wave goodbye to those pesky and unwanted blemishes that never seem to shift.
