Our brand's mission is to raise awareness on Topical Steroid Withdrawal Symptoms and to continue to develop products that nourish and heal the skin barrier, as opposed to thinning it, ultimately reducing the reliance on topical steroids and anti-biotics and helping to minimise the side-effects from the over-use of these products. We aim to change the way the symptoms of eczema, dermatitis and minor wounds are currently managed. Our purpose is to soothe, hydrate, heal and nourish the skin, using natural ingredients and botanicals. We want to give you healthy, glowing skin!
As a mother and as a community pharmacist for 16 years, I've always tried to give my best to my four boys and my customers. When my young son developed severe eczema, naturally, I wanted to help him find a way to heal it. I tried everything - emollients, moisturisers, topical steroids, wet and dry dressings, sedating anti-histamines and natural creams. But none of it worked. Most would sting and they would all end up unused in the bathroom drawer. They were difficult years of attempting to manage broken skin, relentless itch, staph infections, and the sleepless nights was stressful for both mum and son.
Damaged and over reactive skin that wouldn’t heal. Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW) symptoms wasn’t something I had come across until I saw it in my own son and came across the Topical Steroid Withdrawal group on Facebook.
Like many others, I had believed the only way forward was to keep using the strong steroids to suppress the eczema flare-up.
It wasn't until I came across the ITSAN website that it all made sense.
When we installed a compounding room in the pharmacy 3 years ago, I did more research and came across some amazing oils such as Manuka Oil, which is from the same plant as Manuka Honey, and used by the Maori tribes in New Zealand for centuries for their medical properties.
Propolis was another hero ingredient that offered many benefits such as being anti-septic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and supporting skin regeneration.
The results we got from my community and patients were just amazing. My son's skin started to improve to. These products were beneficial for all types of skin irritations such as eczema and dermatitis, blisters, cold sores, minor cuts and grazes, pimples, and even sunburn and minor psoriasis flare-ups.
It is from my personal experience and their positive feedback that the DermaGen by Botanical Chemist skincare brand was created.
Our products target 5 different problem areas.
We get asked a lot what makes our products different from the rest. Well, it is simple... Some ointments mainly have liquid paraffin or white soft paraffin as their base. Other balms have coconut oil, or olive oil as their main ingredient. Whilst these ingredients do hydrate the skin by forming a barrier and preventing moisture loss, they don't have any healing, soothing, anti-septic or skin renewal properties.
1 - Manuka Oil and Propolis
Manuka Oil and Propolis have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
They have been used by mankind for hundreds of year for their medicinal and healing attributes.
2 - Broken Skin
On skin that is broken, and inflamed, if there is a bacterial infection, this can delay skin healing, so we need to address the issue of minor infections for the wounds to heal and apply ingredients that help support skin renewal and regeneration.
3 - Moisture
Broken and inflamed skin also loses a lot of moisture as water evaporates through the broken skin.
The natural oils and waxes in our products help form a barrier to minimise the water loss, keeping skin hydrated for longer.
4 - The skin's Microbiome
Our skin is like our gut, it has millions of bacteria, fungal, viruses living on it, in balance, also known as the skin's microbiome.
When the skin is broken, or inflamed, there is a risk that these microorganisms get into the wound and colonise, delaying wound healing.
5 - Immune Response
The bacteria itself releases a toxic allergen called a super-allergen which further triggers the immune system, causing more redness and irritation.
but you have not tried products like these before.
Our products not only soothe and hydrate the skin, they nourish and strengthen the skin barrier, promote skin regeneration and prevent minor skin infections by supporting skin healing ❤
This product has saved me on more than 1 occasion!!
My son's body broke out with Molluscum Contagiosum and this product was recommended. When I first learnt what he had I was terrified from google searching but this serum cleared it very quickly.
My 2nd experience was a accident to my face. I applied the serum daily for 5 days and my scars healed very nicely and quickly considering the injuries
Hi my Psoriasis is less sore and itchy,
After 2 weeks use of Manuka Oil Cream..
Manuka Oil Balm is making my legs , bad circulation marks less dark and sore..
Also using Active B Serum on my Scalp
Psoriasis slowly less flaky..
So far so good. Over the years have spent a small fortune on potions and lotions, that didn't work.. Thank you Derma Gen.

My baby has suffered from ezcema since since he was a newborn. He has been on steroid daily for over 4 months. I decided it wasn't helping and the advice to constantly using more stronger steroid just didn't seem right. He tried the balm and cream but the serum you instantly saw results. However with steroid withdrawal it took us a bit of time to get clear skin. I haven't seen his skin this clear since he was born.
We have been using the DermaGen range for well over a year now. It never stops amazing me with its healing properties and the results my family are getting every time we use it. We absolutely love the range and tell everyone we know about it.
My daughter was bitten by what we think was a white tailed spider on the back of her leg. I used both the Active 8 serum and Manuka Balm every day and night and not once did it get infected or cause her discomfort. The timing was terrible as we were travelling for Christmas. I truly believe if we did not use these products, she would have struggled sitting in the car as long as what we had to and it would have gotten infected.
Thank you for providing our family with such beautiful products!
Since using the DermaGen range on my 4 year old daughters eczema the redness has decreased and her skin is less dry and itchy. Before using these products she was always itchy and scratching to the point that it was bleeding. Since using a combination of products received in the ultimate skin care bundle I have not seen her scratch once. They have been so gentle and kind to her skin.
I purchased the Manuka Oil Balm and Manuka Oil Cream for my 10 year old son as he has been having a patch of reddish and dry skin near his chin area for a few months. We have tried applying multiple creams, some prescribed by the doctor and some from pharmacy/essential oil cream but they have not been able to resolve the dry skin patch. I came across this DermaGen range online and decided to give it a try. Received my order about 2 weeks ago and have been using it since then. Happy to see improvements within 3 days. It’s been about 2 weeks and I note a tremendous improvement with the dry skin patch largely healed.
My mum has very dry and itchy skin on her legs as well. She is now using the manuka oil cream and manuka balm on her legs and happy to see that her skin is now less dry and itchy.
Absolutely loving this pack! The oil is lovely, feels smooth and soaks In well. The skin radiance in very light and smells so fresh and clean love how it sits on my skin. Love how thick and luxurious it feels on my face. Karen also sent me a full size Kakadu Plum body butter and it is the most rich moisturising product I'm in love!
I love this product for its creamy smooth texture and absorption rate. It is really effective for sore muscles etc and helps stop cramping in my leg 💕
I’ve been using dermagen for just over a week now and the results have been very pleasing. The redness has eased and my skin has not looked this good for over 10 years.
I have very sensitive skin with rough patches. This product has helped them go away.Soothing and hydrating.
I cannot recommend this company and their products highly enough. I have been suffering with an extremely dry face for just over 3 months, nothing I used was working! I decided to try the Manuka Oil Cream and within just 4 days my face was back to normal! Not only does it work but it smells and feels amazing. Karen has gone above and beyond to help me choose the best products and this is what customer service is all about!
All the samples felt lovely on the skin and smelt so good.
My 5mobth old son suffers from Mild to severe eczema and I wanted to try alternatives to the steroids prescribed by the GP. The consistent use of the Manuka Cream, Manuka Oil and the Propolis Balm combination for 28 days has reduced the eczema significantly. I use these products for hydration and prevention of the development of further eczema for my son. Thank you!
I started using this Balm on my face with good results so then went on to lower legs and arms. All sundamaged areas (make that acreages - ha,ha.), so need big pot.
I have used many products over the years and yours is the best. Just thought you might like to know that you sent complimentary tub of Calendula and Arnica Balm with last order.
Also, love that and we use it on hands and arms as well.
Will be ordering again soon.
I stumbled across this brand on my instagram as a ad, and I thought to myself 'yeah right'. I spent the next 3 days heavily invested in getting to know this brand, products, what ingredients and where from..
Being in WA south West I instantly jumped on and brought everything the whole range for my 3 year old who has been suffering so so bad with eczema, staph infections, steroid withdrawals and allergies ontop.
This has been 100% game changer/life savour for my boy. There is absolutely nothing else ill ever use again on his skin with the first day of using dermagen we had instant results, to the 5th day it was clear skin. We forgot 1 day which resulted back to full blown red raw skin.
From the bottom of my heart thankyou so much for these beautiful products that are natural, smell amazing and 100% helps from the first use. These amazing products have been a life savour. We will never stop using dermagen ever.
Absorbs quickly, leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturised.
