A chapter in the history of Canadian dermatology
Dermtek Pharma was born from Robert Lavoie’s desire to establish the very first completely Canadian pharmaceutical company specializing in the development and production of dermatological products. The corporation launched with four innovative products, based on traditional actives in combination with advanced delivery systems, and quickly gained the trust of skin care professionals.
Sunscreens became a necessity for all those enjoying the great outdoors in the early 1990s. Thanks to Dermtek Pharma, Parsol 1789 and Ombrelle saw the light of day and took their place in the sun, offering a line of broad-spectrum sun protection. A few years later, the Canadian pioneer innovated once more and introduced the dermocosmetic brand Reversa, a sun damage correction line to reverse the signs of aging.Contact Us
