What we put in our products
DeVita, meaning “of life”, is the philosophy behind our exclusive 100% natural skin care line, developed through the perfect combination of science and nature. Formulated for all skin types, DeVita’s natural skin care range uses the most advanced, cutting edge, clinically proven bio-active ingredients and technology. These “bio-active” or functional ingredients create a structural difference in your skin with results seen in as little as 7-10 days. Combined with a scientifically advance botanical delivery system, the result is healthy, vibrant skin.
To date, DeVita is one of the few 100% paraben free, phenoxyethanol free, toxic chemical-free, natural cosmeceutical skin care lines available in America, and one of the few readily available in Australia. Cosmeceuticals represent a union between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Like cosmetics, cosmeceuticals are topically applied, but they contain ingredients that influence the biological function of the skin, creating a structural difference. DeVita’s line of cosmeceuticals gets down to the root cause of premature aging skin and helps the skin repair itself naturally. Our advanced botanical formulas harness the power of nature’s chemistry to actually help minimize the visible signs of both biological and environmental aging, while delivering high concentrations of phyto-intensive skin nutrition. We utilize only organic and ethically wild-crafted 100% pure essential oils, whole herb extracts and amino acids. All of the extracts and essential oils used in the DeVita Natural Skin Care range are alcohol-free, fragrance-free and pesticide-free. All DeVita products are 100% Paraben Free and toxic chemical-free (NO – Parabens, Sulphates, Petrochemicals, TEA, DEA, PEG’s, Glycols, synthetic fragrances or colors etc). DeVita does not support GMO’s or nanotechnology, and is gluten sensitive safe.
Our team of estheticians, natural cosmetic chemists and dermatologists combine their expertise to ensure the effectiveness and quality of all of our products. Additionally, we are committed to being cruelty free, which means no animal testing is ever used in the development and production of our exclusive formulas – we only test on people!

Algae peptides are the cutting edge of ingredients for skin care. These organisms are derived from red sea algae that grows in Hawaii. This ingredient has a very high content of hydroxyproline which is the building block of collagen. When algae peptides are applied directly onto the skin, two things happen that make your skin produce more collagen. First, our skin believes that it has broken down collagen since there is free hydroxyproline in the skin; to compensate for this, our skin makes and forms new collagen. Second, our skin gets a jump start on collagen production, since it already has a hydroxyproline present.
