the miracle of modern technology and after extensive research,
they discovered a unique and highly effective carrier that allows
the transfer of large amounts of dissolved natural oxygen without the use of chemical activators like hydrogen peroxide, which
is known to dry skin.
“What makes us unique is our history and product line,” said
Maria Isabel Tamargo, vice president of marketing.“The co-founder
of Oxygen Biotherapeutics, which is the parent company of Derma-
cyte, was Leland Clark. He was often referred to as the ‘Edison of
According to Tamargo, Clark has developed more than 13
important medical inventions such as the heart-lung machine.
During his research in the 1940s to create artificial kidneys, he
discovered that blood could be oxygenated and started focusing
his research on oxygen therapies, which later led to the creation
of a device that measures oxygen content in the blood, water
and other liquids. His extensive research and knowledge in oxy-
gen therapies eventually led to the creation of oxycyte, which is
a third generation oxygen carrier designed to enhance oxygen
delivery to damaged tissues.
“This gives Dermacyte a very unique advantage since no
other company can use our advanced and effective oxygen car-
rier backed by years of science in their product,” said Tamargo.
“Unlike other oxygen brands, Dermacyte does not use hydrogen
peroxide in its products to oxygenate the skin since hydrogen
peroxide has been associated with drying, bleaching and dam-
aging the skin.”
Currently, Dermacyte is sold at online at dermstore.com.
