In a tropical country like India, the need for suitable, safe and soothing skin products meeting various needs has evolved over the decades but with certain limits on research and availability.

Providing a deep value and offering in this very niche segment, Indonesian based Dermozone with its extensive 18-year research makes its mark in India with products matching these special needs. Here’s a news report.
Indonesia-based Dermozone, a wound treatment and skin care products maker plans to introduce five skin care products under its brand, ‘+dalethyne’. These products will be introduced under two main product classes: Dermozone Acne range and Dermozone Baby range. The products to be introduced under the Acne range include acne wax, face wash and face scrub. The products under the Baby class will be baby wax and baby massage oil, according to a report published by the BioSpectrum magazine.

The company claims that its herbal ingredients-based products are recognized globally. These products are available under categories of Wound, AcneWax, Products Pharmacies and Clinics.
The company has secured an initial venture funding of $4 million. The company hopes that these funds will give it the ability to garner revenues to the tune of $22 million over the next three years. According to a research report by Techavio, the global dermatology market is expected to reach $1.17 billion by 2022.
