We take an in depth look at Dermacut to find out more.
Dermacut is a skin cream described as a fat emulsifying gel. It is aimed at people who want to enhance body definition, already spend time at the gym working out, and now want to get a little bit more from their results.
Dermacut does not come with the claims that it will help you lose weight but instead it is supposed to reduce fat in the abdominal area.
If you work out but still cannot shift those love handles, Dermacut looks to put the final sleek gloss on your training. Unsurprisingly Dermacut contains ingredients that do not usually show up in other weight loss supplements. After all this supplement is applied topically to the skin and not taken internally as most of the supplements we cover.
Ingredients include two trademarked formulas called Adiposlim and Adipoless.According to the product information, Adiposlim shrinks fat cells beneath the skin, Adipoless prevents the development of new fat cells.
Dermacut also contains Hyaluronic acid an all-natural moisturiser. Hyaluronic acid is present naturally in the body and found in your eyes and your joints. When used for medical or cosmetic purposes it is synthesised from bacteria in the lab (or from rooster combs) and it is promoted for its anti aging effects. There is some evidence that it can improve the signs of aging from the skin.
The final active ingredient is Squalene. This is also a moisturiser that the product information advises will help supplement natural hydration levels in the skin. Squalene is also called shark liver oil but it can be synthesised from vegetable sources too. It is not clear whether the Squalene in Dermacut is derived from fish friendly sources because the product information does not make this clear.
Squalene is an antioxidant and can promote cell growth as well as protect against sun damage and age spots.
Dispense a quarter-sized amount of Dermacut.
Use your hand to vigorously massage the fat emulsifying gel onto the target area until all of the product has been absorbed.
Continue using Dermacut on a single area until the desired results are achieved.
Then, move on to the next region you want to target.
Use Dermacut once or twice daily for full results.
Dermacut is part of a range of products developed by Pharmaxa Labs who specialise in ‘Advanced Nutraceautical Science’. Other supplements include skin creams such as Flexedermal designed to ease aches and pains , Phenocal a weight loss supplement and Progesteril – a transdermal( through the skin) treatment for the menopause.
It was not immediately clear that Dermacut came under the umbrella of this larger organisation. The Dermacut site is not impressive and conveys the impression that this is a standalone product advertised in a flashy style with dodgy fonts and some wild claims. It is confusing and jumbled and this made the product and the company behind it look questionable.
It was only after we investigated the company via a scam advisor site and found that the site had a very high trust rating, that we also found that Dermacut was part of a larger corporation and seemed more trustworthy than it first appeared.
Dermacut is manufactured in the USA in a facility that conforms to GMP (good manufacturing practices). The Dermacut website is a ‘doctor trusted’ site – a consumer protection organisation that offers the customer some assurance that the product on sale is safe and the company are trustworthy.
‘Burn Abdominal Fat and Get Ripped With Dermacut’, according to the advertising, this gel will ‘revolutionise your workouts’.
There are three key points. It will help you:
The product information mentions that there has been ‘Rigorous Scientific Research’ into Dermacut. However this research is not explained and there is no real proof that the ingredients in the gel will work as described. We would have liked to have seen some links to clinical evidence.
Instead, the advertising relies on ‘The Experiences of Actual DermaCut Users’ to ‘Confirm That This Remarkable Topical Product Can Do All of The Following:’ (It is a long list. You may wish to skip this bit).
All this sounds great but does not help the customer looking for proof, that any of this is likely to happen.
Dermacut is a topical skin gel that you apply to problem fat areas in order to make them disappear. It contains two branded supplements Adiposlim and Adipoless plus other ingredients.
Dermacut may have a cosmetic effect. It will probably not do you any harm and it may improve the appearance of your skin. However, we have been unable to find out much about Adiposlim and Adipoless and whether these two formulas will work in the way as described.
Applying creams to the skin can improve the texture. Many cellulite creams contain caffeine for example and it can have a light cosmetic effect and break up cellulite fat that is directly under the top layer of skin.
However, this gel will not make you lose fatty areas beyond a minimal effect although it may work if you suffer from cellulite. It may help tighten loose skin.
According to the product information, Dermacut is safe. It is applied topically and there is no evidence it gets absorbed into the bloodstream.
However, there is a warning that you should discontinue use if a rash or irritation should occur.
The product information warns that you “should consult your healthcare practitioner before taking this product especially if you are pregnant, lactating, taking any medications, have food allergies, or if you have any medical conditions.
This is standard advice for all supplements.
We could only find one independent customer review for Dermacut. This comment was that Dermacut is “very good” and the customer gave it five stars.
Although this is good, it is not very helpful.
Without much in the way of customer feedback, information about clinical testing or any real hard facts, it is hard to judge just how well Dermacut will work.
However, topical creams like this can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and they can be effective with toning loose skin following dramatic weight loss. Surprisingly, these points are not mentioned in the advertising.
We have never seen any clinical testing that suggests a rub on gel will help you lose fat. The evidence is just not out there and if it were we would all know about it!
We think Dermacut will probably improve the texture and appearance of your skin but there is just no evidence that any skin cream will target fat cells in the way as described.
We just cannot see how it will remove your love handles or magic you a six-pack as the advertising claims.
Dermacut is not on sale in the shopping mall or high street. You can only buy Dermacut via the Dermacut website.
Confusingly this page seems to describe a different product aimed at menopausal women but leaving this aside, the price of Dermacut is provided.
One 4oz tube of Dermacut (one month’s supply) costs $34.97. You can also choose a value pack called Extreme Value and get five month’s supply for $83.97. Confusingly this comprises of 4 x 4oz tubes of Dermacut, which by our reckoning is only 4 months supply if one tube will last you a month.
Both options come with a free gift of 60 capsules of Green Pura Tea and a free ebook digital download about weight loss. Shipping is free to US addresses on orders over $50.00 Otherwise shipping costs are not provided.
International shipping is calculated at the point of sale. You can pay via bankcard or PayPal. Dermacut used to be on sale via Amazon but has since been discontinued.
There is a 60-day money back guarantee on offer. The company states,

You’ll receive a 100% full refund of the purchase price of the product(s) that you ordered, you will be responsible for all original and return shipping costs. Please note that our return policy allows for a maximum of 1 (one) opened bottle of product to be accepted as a return.
There are some conditions but they are not unreasonable:
To qualify for a refund you must contact the company within 60 days after the order was received and obtain a Return Authorization Code (RAC). Guarantee applies ONLY to products which are purchased from this website.
Shipping and handling charges are not included.Re-orders represent satisfaction. No refunds will be applied once a re-order has been placed. Guarantee applies only to our retail customers. Guarantee does not apply to company distributors.
Dermacut is a confusing looking product. We had real trouble navigating the Dermacut website and it was hard to find out any real information about this supplement beyond the pictures of men holding up their shirts to display their six packs and female athletes without an oz of fat.
The sales page related to a totally different supplement and the five-month’s deal looked like a four month’s deal. The ingredients list did not match the advertising and overall it left us annoyed and frustrated with this supplement and the company behind it.
However, Dermacut is not actually a scam product despite appearances. Buy from the site and you will not be tricked into a billing scam. It comes with a guarantee so you could try for a refund if you were dissatisfied. That said a lack of customer feedback is of concern. Has anyone tried for a refund? Has anyone other than one satisfied customer tried out this weight loss gel? If they have, it is clear that nobody is talking about Dermacut.
In truth, we think you will probably be dissatisfied if you buy this gel. There is no evidence anywhere that says a skin cream will burn fat in the way as described. It seems fair to say that this supplement will not provide you with a way to lose your love handles or improve your six-pack.
It will however provide a light cosmetic effect and may help to tone and tighten your skin. It may help improve the appearance of cellulite too but it will not work as advertised.
It is an easy decision. There is no way we could approve such a misleading and ineffective supplement so we have no other option but to reject Dermacut.
