Over the last fifteen years there has been a growing amount of research into an ingredient called silica that has the ability to create conditions where the body can repair itself naturally. As accomplished surgeons with a deep understanding of silica research, Dr. Annabel Barber and Dr. Barbara Persons decided to apply this new field of micro-silica technology into skincare.

Their discovery vastly improved the skin's natural repairing capabilities and changed the way we now approach rapid skin repair and recovery. They worked hand-in-hand with leading silica researchers to create the world's first transdermal application. From this research DermaFACS was born.

When the body has compromised skin it needs two things: moisture and oxygen. Unlike oil and vaseline based products, RecoverX promotes oxygen or moisture exchange, which promotes rapid skin recovery.

Because the formula is hydroscopic (attracts moisxture), it creates a moist, oxygenated environment which promotes skin recovery and repair - even in dry climates. What happened next came as a welcomed surprise as RecoverX was introduced in the patient recovery process.

In 2019, Consumer studies were conducted to determine if the micro-silica compound, applied topically, would speed repair and reduce scarring. Over 80% over participants reported a significant improvement in recovery time and reduced scar appearance across a range of epidermal conditions, including: acne, laser surgery, cuts/scrapes, psoriasis, eczema, sunburns, chafing/chapping, and stretch marks.

Not only was RecoverX drastically speeding up recovery time, it was also working wonders to repair various types of skin damage. Within just weeks, the doctors saw significant improvement in repairing general skin ailments.

Since this discovery, RecoverX has taken off as the only product on the market to promote rapid skin repairing with its silicon-based (micro-silica) HSX technology. There is truly nothing else like it.  In 2020, responding to growing demand, Dermafacs added a digital storefront to make RecoverX available directly to consumers.
