Dermelect Cosmeceuticals is bringing nail care into the cosmeceuticals arena.
The firm, which bills itself as a no-nonsense, simple skin care company, is launching a five-item line dubbed peptide infused nail and hand care.
The line uses ProSina as its active ingredient, a substance that has previously been used only in noncosmeceutical applications, such as bone grafting and wound dressing. ProSina is sourced from New Zealand sheep wool and is a protein said to help stabilize keratin levels and amino acids in the skin.
The nail and hand care lines consist of the Launch Pad Nail Strengthener, a base coat intended to promote growth, strength and health, which will be priced at $18. There is also the Makeover Ridge Filler, a concealer and base coat, meant to fill in the “wrinkles,” or ridges in the nails, which is also priced at $18. Rounding out the nail lacquer range is the High Maintenance Instant Nail Thickener, which is designed to be a fast-drying top coat, and is priced at $16.
Dermelect’s new hand care products will include Rejuvenail Fortifying Nail and Cuticle Treatment, an antiaging cuticle cream priced at $18. The last product in Dermelect’s peptide infused nail and hand care line is the Timeless Anti-Aging Daily Hand Treatment, an antiaging and hydrating hand cream, which is priced at $22.
All of the nail lacquers are launching this month at Takashimaya and at dermelect.com. The cuticle and hand creams will be launched in September.
In October, Dermelect plans to launch Nail Recovery System, a kit that will include the strengthener or the ridge filler, the nail thickener and the cuticle treatment. It will be priced at $59.
Industry sources estimate the Dermelect peptide infused nail and hand care line will generate upward of $500,000 in first-year retail sales, or about 20 percent of Dermelect Cosmeceutical’s total business. — Alissa Cherry

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
