Our Story

Hi, we’re the family behind Permaderm.

Permaderm was born right here in New Zealand in 2017.

Between acne, eczema, psoriasis and back pains we all had issues, and we were dissatisfied with conventional treatments. Topical products were wasteful, toxic and ineffective, medication came with a plethora of side effects, and clinical treatments were expensive, and with children, impractical.

In our searches we discovered LED light therapy. The science was clear; It was effective, non-invasive, sustainable, and it healed rather than masked.

Today, Permaderm exists to share our discovery and passion for LED Light Therapy with others. We have developed a small, focused range of products that we all love to use, and we hope you do too.

Our products are designed in-house, manufactured in an ethical, world-class facility in China, and stocked locally here in Nelson, NZ.

Whether you call, email, or use our live chat, you will be speaking with one of us. We share your skin frustrations and will do whatever we can to help.
