Your Frequently Asked Questions...

What are DermaShotz?
DermaShotz is a skincare drink containing a market-leading 11g of superior grade Peptan bio available Marine Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, MSM, Curcumin, and a full spectrum of skin enhancing vitamins and minerals.
Why is DermaShotz a powder sachet and not a ready to drink gel?
Ready to drink collagen supplements are pre mixed and therefore contain water. This means that the ingredients in such pre mixed supplements will begin to degrade over time. They also need preservatives to slow down and prevent bacteria and other microbiological matter from growing in the mixture. DermaShotz contain absolutely no preservatives, so you are getting 100% of the active ingredients, ready to be added to your glass or bottle of water.
We also believe that you shouldn't have to pay us for water! Each DermaShotz sachet contains our specially formulated blend of active ingredients and nothing more.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body. It has several functions, one of which is to promote the skin's integrity, elasticity and strength. Collagen makes up 75% of our skin's dry mass, and is a protein which occurs naturally in the body. However, from the age of around 20, our natural Collagen production starts to decline. This is one of the reasons why our skin can start to develop fine lines and wrinkles as we age. We add 11g of world leading Peptan Hydrolysed Marine Collagen to each single serve sachet.

Do I still need to use a serum / moisturiser if I take DermaShotz supplements?
Yes, DermaShotz work in unison with your current topical skin care routine. Moisturisers and serums work on the outer layer of the skin called the epidermis. DermaShotz work from the inside on the second layer of the skin called the dermis.
Also, using a high quality cream with a high SPF factor is one of the most important things that we can do for our skin, to protect it from harmful UVA / UVB rays.
Will DermaShotz only improve the skin on my face?
The skin is the largest organ found in the human body. Collagen is an essential element of the second layer of our skin, the dermis, and it helps to give our skin it's youthful appearance. DermaShotz will benefit the skin on all parts of the body.
Does DermaShotz improve your hair and nails as well as your skin?
Those who take DermaShotz have reported an improvement in the health of their hair and nails in as little as 2 to 3 weeks, however generally speaking, results start to be realised in around 3 months of continuous use.
How and when should I take DermaShotz?
DermaShotz is formulated to be taken once every day, with water. Simply tear open a sachet and empty the contents into a glass or bottle. If you are drinking your DermaShotz from a glass, give the mix a good stir before you drink. If you are drinking your DermaShotz from a bottle, give the bottle a good shake first. How much water you add is entirely up to you; some prefer a stronger taste and others prefer a more diluted drink.
What does DermaShotz taste like?
DermaShotz is flavoured with a natural Valencia Orange flavouring.
How long can I take DermaShotz for?
DermaShotz is highly safe and is therefore suitable for long term and ongoing use.
Can I take DermaShotz if I am on medication or have an underlying health condition?
It is extremely unlikely that DermaShotz will conflict with any medication you may be taking, however we always recommend that you consult with your GP or a medical professional prior to taking any new supplement.
Can I take DermaShotz if I have an allergy to fish?
BodyShotz formula does not contain any fish, however the Marine Collagen in BodyShotz is sourced from fish and is not recommended for those with an allergy to fish.
How long should it take before I can expect to see results?
This varies from person to person; some of our customers have reported positive changes in their skin in as little as 2 to 3 weeks, however it may take 2 months of continuous use for definite changes to be realised.
What will happen if I stop taking DermaShotz?
Results vary from person to person. If you stop taking DermaShotz for a short period of time, such as a weekend, then your results will be maintained. However, if you stop taking DermaShotz completely, you will slowly lose the benefits you have gained.
Where is the Marine Collagen in DermaShotz from and is it sourced ethically?
The Marine Collagen in DermaShotz is derived from hydrolysed Peptan Peptides sourced from the skin of freshwater fish farmed for human consumption and therefore not sourced purely for its collagen. It is supplied to DermaShotz by an established European manufacturer and is certified fit for human consumption. Our supplier follows a strict code of conduct.
How much protein is in DermaShotz?
Each 14g sachet of DermaShotz contains 10g of protein. Some of our customers prefer to take DermaShotz after exercising for the protein content that each sachet provides.
This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Individual results will vary and are dependent on skin type and skin condition.
Are DermaShotz just another collagen supplement?
The short answer is no. While DermaShotz do contain the highest dosage of collagen available in a single serve supplement, there is more to a DermaShotz serving than just marine collagen. DermaShotz contain a number of ingredients, each one specifically contributing to the health of your skin, hair and nails. Collagen is an incredibly important ingredient for our skin, but we understand that it's not the only thing that our body needs for healthy skin.
