You are trading in the flare-ups, confusion, and embarrassment of moody skin for peace, clarity, and confidence.

Your struggles are our struggles. You’re part of a community now. And soon we will celebrate with you as you reclaim your peaceful skin and peace of mind.



Peaceful Skin Timeline

What to Expect at Each Stage of Your Healing Journey

Every body is unique. While a lucky few may notice immediate relief, most of us will need to nurture our skin with two to four weeks of consistent care before we see a full recovery.

The Peaceful Skin Timeline below is based on daily treatment of your skin. If you spread out your treatments, your timeline will likely extend longer.

Remember, the goal is to create a daily ritual of self love. (You’re worth it!)

Let's dive into what you can expect at each stage of your healing journey…




Ingredients & Products to Avoid

Did you know some ingredients will inflame your skin and trigger flare-ups?

What you avoid in your skincare routine is just as important as what you include.

We’ve heard from several members of the Dermazen community who were using our products for the first time, but weren’t seeing complete relief.

After we asked about their skincare routine, it turned out they were using other products like bar soaps or creams made with fungus-feeding oils.

Once they removed the unsafe products from their routine, their flare-ups went away and their skin looked better than ever.

Most Important Ingredients to Avoid

Oils: Almost every oil on the planet contains fatty acids that will feed the malassezia fungus. This includes coconut, castor, almond, jojoba, and many more. To learn more about the science behind which oils feed the fungus and why, visit dermazen.co/oils

✅ The only safe oils are squalane and MCT (without lauric acid).

Waxes and Butters: This includes beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, and more. These ingredients contain the same fungus-feeding fatty acids as most oils.

👆 Note: Oils, waxes, and butters only need to be avoided on areas where you experience symptoms of malassezia fungus, which usually occur around the face, scalp, and ears. So if you don’t get fungal symptoms on your hands, it’s perfectly alright to use a hand lotion with beeswax or coconut oil.

👇 But these chemical ingredients below should be avoided as often as possible across your body.

Fragrances: The synthetic scents used in most skincare and haircare products have been proven to disrupt hormones, affecting everything from your emotional state to your physical health. They have also been strongly linked to neural disturbances (e.g., headache, depression, and migraine), various cancers, skin and respiratory hypersensitivity, liver and thyroid toxicity, reproductive problems, and more.

✅ Make sure you are using products that are scent-free or scented by essential oils or hydrosols. 

Essential oils don’t contain any fatty acids so they don’t promote malassezia growth. However, many essential oils used in skincare products are made with carrier oils like jojoba which feed malassezia fungus. We make sure every essential oil we use is 100% pure without carrier oils.

Sulfates: These common lathering agents in beauty products remove essential moisture from your hair and skin, damage your skin barrier, and make your skin more sensitive to irritation. They also pose a risk to aquatic life and ecosystems when they enter our waterways. They’re harmful for you and the environment.

Parabens: These preservatives are known to mimic estrogen, interfere with hormonal balance, jeopardize fertility, impact the health of reproductive organs, alter birth outcomes, and elevate cancer risk.

Phthalates: These synthetic compounds are added to skincare products to improve their “spreadability.” They’ve been shown to disrupt fertility, initiate early puberty, and increase the risk of low birth weight, obesity, diabetes, and immune system disorders. 

Our Promise to You

You deserve self-care products that support your health, not sabotage it.

When you treat your skin to any Dermazen formula, you can rest easy knowing every ingredient is safe, non-toxic, and designed to harmonize with your body.

We practice ingredient minimalism. Our goal is to keep our formulas as simple (zen) as possible while creating products more effective than anything else.

Every formula is designed with you, our loved ones, and the planet in mind.

How to Combine Products

The secret to keeping your skin peaceful is to treat your skincare like a team where every product plays a vital role.

Like putting together a puzzle, each piece supports the others, and together they create a picture of calm, healthy skin.

One product can help, but the real magic happens when you combine these formulas.



Face Protocol

To soothe your face, follow the mantra: cleanse, treat, moisturize.

  1. Cleanse: Starting with the gentle cleanser sweeps away dirt, oil, and fungus, creating a blank canvas for the other formulas to bless your skin while also giving relief from irritation. 
  2. Treat: Applying the serum soothes your skin by focusing on the root cause of your condition, disrupting the biofilm, clearing away fungus, and soothing your skin.
  3. Moisturize: Finishing with the moisturizer will seal in the serum’s benefits while hydrating your skin, preventing excess oil, and protecting your skin barrier.

We recommend following these steps before bed so the ingredients can absorb into your skin before applying makeup (if that’s part of your daily routine), but this ritual works just as well at the start of your day.

You can repeat this process twice a day, but cleansing too often can be drying for some skin types, so we suggest cleansing once a day then using the serum and moisturizer twice a day for glowing skin.



Scalp Protocol

The ideal order for scalp care is more flexible since you might prefer to wash your hair at night, in the morning, or only once or twice each week (or less often for textured hair).

Your scalp care routine might require more customization than your facial care. But as a rule of thumb, you can follow this order…

  1. Treat: Applying the serum before bed soothes your scalp by focusing on the root cause of your condition, disrupting the biofilm, clearing away fungus, and soothing your skin. If you shower at night, make sure the serum soaks into your scalp for at least two hours before washing it out.
  2. Cleanse: Washing with the shampoo (in the morning or after 2+ hours) removes the dried serum, MCT moisturizer, oil from your scalp, dirt, and fungus while refreshing your scalp, nourishing your hair, and supporting new hair growth.

This order is different from the facial care routine because your hair most likely won’t absorb the serum and moisturizer like the skin on your face will. So cleansing at the end gives you fresh hair to style how you wish.

The Peaceful Skin System

This complete bundle has everything you need to calm your moody skin, nourish your hair, and enhance your natural glow.

While you can combine the products however you wish, we recommend following the steps below for optimal results.

BEFORE BED

Step 1 Cleanse (Face)

Remove oil, dirt, and fungus while creating a fresh canvas for the other formulas to work their wonders.

Step 2 Soothe (Face & Scalp)

Disrupt the fungal biofilm, clear away malassezia fungus, and soothe your skin overnight.

Step 3 Hydrate (Face)

Hydrate your pores, balance your skin tone, improve skin texture, and prevent surprise flare-ups.



AFTER YOU RISE

Step 4 Cleanse (Scalp)

Remove dried serum, dirt, oil, and fungus while nourishing and thickening your hair.

Prefer to shower at night? Simply apply the serum at least one hour before showering so it can absorb fully.

Average treatment time: less than 3 minutes per day.

Calming Seborrheic Serum

How to Use

  1. Apply a generous amount of serum to your moody skin or scalp before bed. 
  2. Massage in the formula as you thank your body for all its gifts. 
  3. Sleep in bliss while the natural ingredients disrupt the biofilm, clear the fungus, and soothe your skin.
  4. If caring for your scalp, in the morning, rinse your hair with water or wash with a malassezia-safe shampoo before styling. For facial care, allow the soothing ingredients to absorb fully - no need to rinse.
  5. Enjoy all-day peaceful skin and peace of mind.


For Best Results

To further calm your scalp and prevent dandruff, wash with the Cleansing Dandruff Shampoo

When treating your face, first wash with the Purifying Facial Cleanser before applying the serum, then protect your skin’s peace with the Soothing Malassezia Moisturizer after the serum.

Stinging Is Possible & Natural

If your skin is inflamed, you might experience a stinging sensation from the sea salt and tea tree essential oil. This is normal - we’ve all felt salt in a wound before. 

Fortunately, the aloe and other soothing ingredients will usually calm any discomfort within a minute or two. And as your skin heals over the next few treatments, the stinging will become less intense or disappear completely.

If your skin is extra sensitive and the stinging feels unbearable, you can dilute the serum by 50% with purified water and apply it to your skin. The serum is our strongest formula, so there are many folks in the Dermazen community who have seen great results with a diluted serum.

Soothing Malassezia Moisturizer

How to Use:

  1. Apply a generous amount of moisturizer to your face, giving extra attention to areas with moody skin.
  2. Massage in the moisturizer and recite the mantra, “I love myself and I am worthy of care.”
  3. Allow the formula to absorb into your skin, overnight or anytime of day.
  4. Enjoy the peace of mind brought to you by peaceful skin.

Cradle Calm

How to Use:

  1. Start by removing excess flakes with a comb or by washing your baby’s scalp with a bath.*
  2. Next, apply Cradle Calm to your little one’s head. 
  3. Massage lightly, focusing on areas with cradle cap, and leave it in for ongoing relief and comfort.


For Best Results

*We recommend only washing your baby’s scalp with a cleansing formula free from oils that will feed the fungus causing their symptoms. Using a shampoo - even a natural one - made with oils can make your infant’s scalp flare up (we’ve seen it on our own babies).

Our goal is to release a cradle-cap friendly baby wash in 2024. Until then, several team members with babies use the Purifying Facial Cleanser as a safe, gentle shampoo and body wash for our little ones.

Cooling Rescue Roller

How to Use:

  1. Apply the wand wherever you need relief on the go. 
  2. After the roller ball glides along your skin, allow the holistic ingredients to absorb into your pores and soothe your skin.

MCT Scalp Moisturizer

How to Use:

If you shower in the morning…

🌙 1. Apply a generous amount of moisturizer to your scalp before bed and massage it in. 

☀️ 2. In the morning, wash it out with a malassezia-safe shampoo. Some folks choose to cover their scalp with a cloth wrap or change their pillowcase to prevent oil stains. 

If you shower at night…

🌙 1. Apply the moisturizer and allow the ingredients to absorb for at least two hours.

🌙 2. Then wash it out with a malassezia-safe shampoo for a happy, healthy scalp.


For Best Results
