F.A.Q.

What makes our products unique, safe and efficient is the innovative MonoDermoDose base: the single dose provides a pure, effective formulation that respects the skin’s ecosystem.
The use of vitamins in the MonoDermoDose format was studied specifically to give the skin only active ingredients in their purest form, completely excluding water, preservatives, colorants and fragrances, substances which, when present, can cause allergies, sensitisation and irritation of the skin.
“Give the skin only what it needs”, this is the message that MonoDermoDose prompts us each day. Dermocosmetic purity, efficacy and safety combined in a single gift of wellbeing to your skin.

Monodermà products can found in pharmacies throughout the country. If your pharmacist does not have the product you want, he can contact a wholesaler who always has a store of our products and in a short time your pharmacist will be able to supply the requested product

The philosophy inspiring the Monodermà line of products is centred on the concept of “dermocosmetic minimalism”. Monodermà products comply with the principle of having exquisitely basic formulations: only pure active ingredients, the minimum number of excipients, total absence of preservatives, fragrances and colorants.

The formulations have been studied to minimise the risk of sensitisation and allergic reactions, in order to guarantee the greatest safety and tolerability even for the most sensitive skin.

Monodermà products are “Nickel Tested”: the amount of nickel in each batch produced is measured with a plasma phase mass spectrometer showing that the maximum amount of nickel present is much smaller than the safety limit above which people allergic to this metal can show skin reactions.

Dermocosmetic safety is one of the absolute prerogatives of our products.
The hypoallergenic formulations, guaranteed by the careful choice of the active ingredients and the cutting edge methods of formulation make our products safe for daily use, even during pregnancy. Furthermore, the ingredients act locally on the skin, without penetrating into the deep layers or into the blood stream.
Monodermà C10 can be particularly useful in pregnancy to prevent and treat melasma gravidarum (the dark brown patches that can develop, particularly on the face and neck, in pregnant women).
Monodermà E5 is indicated to prevent the formation of cracked nipples and stretch marks. It is recommended that Retinol is not used systemically (as an oral supplement) in pregnancy; in contrast, there are no particular contraindications to the topical use of products containing retinol at concentrations below 0.30% (some studies have demonstrate that up to this concentration the ingredient is not absorbed into the blood stream).
The concentration of Retinol in Monodermà A15 is 0.15%.

The single dose product must be used for only one application and, more specifically, must be used immediately after it has been opened. In fact, it is the innovative MonoDermoDose base which protects the pure active ingredients from contact with air and from light, without the need to use chemical stabilisers or preservatives.

Hold the MonoDermoDose gently between the fingers in a horizontal or vertical position, taking care not to exert strong pressure, and twist the closure of the container until it detaches completely.
Apply the product to a perfectly cleaned skin, using your fingers to spread it over the parts to be treated.
The product is absorbed quickly, is not greasy and does not leave marks.

After applying the vitamin in the MonoDermoDose, you can use another cosmetic on your skin (e.g. daytime moisturiser, sun cream, night-time nutrient cream, make- up).

Yes, the MonoDermoDose of 0.5 ml is the right amount for treating both your face and neck.

The formulations of Monodermà products have been specifically studied to guarantee the maximum safety and tolerability even when applied to the delicate area around the eyes.
Monodermà A15 should not be used around the eyes only in the case of particularly sensitive skin, given the high concentration of Retinol (0.15%), which is a very active compound.

Monodermà E5 can be used as a “basic antioxidant”, preferably for long periods of treatment.
In contrast, it is recommended that Monodermà A15 and Monodermà C10 are used for cycles of treatment lasting 2 to 3 months, which can be repeated during the arc of a year.

The formulation of the two products is identical; the only thing that is different is the amount of the MonoDermoDose.
The Monodermà E5XL package contains 14 MonoDermoDoses of 1.8 ml.
Monodermà XL is indicated for the treatment of large areas of skin.

The properties of vitamin E and the special formulation of Monodermà E5 make this product and ideal dermocosmetic for treating children with red skin (nappy rash, cold rashes, sun burns, itching).

Generally speaking, the topical application of retinoids can cause reddening, desquamation and dry skin. Compared to other retinoids, Retinol is better tolerated; nevertheless, these secondary effects, which are due to the product’s activity, may sometimes occur, particularly during the first few times the product is applied.
In this case, adjust the frequency of application according to the sensitivity of your own skin.
If any redness and burning persist, suspend use of the product.

The product should be applied to a perfectly dry skin.
Any slight tingling is due to the activity of the product and will disappear after a short time.

Since Retinol has an exfoliating effect on the skin, it makes the skin more sensitive to exposure to the sun. For this reason, it is recommended that Monodermà A15 is applied in the evening and a protective sun cream used during the day.
