General information

Bleaching Wax

Our bleaching waxes have been regarded as classic products for treating pigmentation disorders for over 80 years. With our tried and trusted active ingredient “Ephelidin” (diacetyl boldine) derived from the natural ingredient of the bark of the Chilean boldo tree, our bleaching waxes gently prevent the synthesis of the dark skin pigment, melanin and lighten pigmentation spots in a gentle and effective way.

DRULA® BLEACHING WAXES intervene in the synthesis route of the melanin at an early stage, thereby slowing the melanin synthesis. The active ingredient prevents the activation of the central enzyme for melanin formation, tyrosinase, thereby contributing effectively to lightening of the skin.

Fade Milk

Our soothing DRULA® FADE MILK is recommended for the treatment of pigmentation disorders on larger areas of the body.

  • Skincare for the targeted and gentle lightening of pigmentation spots and to prevent them from reoccurring
  • light, moisturising formula prevents the skin from becoming dry
  • Antioxidants such as vitamin E protect the skin from the negative effects of free radicals (damaging environment influences)

Further information

DRULA® FADE MILK EXTRA FORTE for the treatment of pigmentation disorders on the body. When used regularly, a gentle lightening of pigmentation spots can be achieved and they can be prevented from reoccurring. The lightening ingredient phenylethyl resorcinol is derived from a natural ingredient of the Scotch Pine tree (pinus sylvestris). It is an effective and very well-tolerated active ingredient which leads to the inhibition of a central enzyme of melanin production.

 

How to use: Apply daily in the morning and evening after cleansing and massage in gently. The product should be used over a longer period of time.

 

Note: Avoid contact with the eyes and mucous membranes. When using all skin lightening DRULA® products, avoid direct sunlight and wear an additional sun cream with at least LSF 25.

Anti-Aging Cream

We have developed an invigorating cream with threefold effect that meets the highest requirements: DRULA® ANTI-AGING CREAM! A highly effective complex with natural mulberry extract and vitamins optimally supplying the skin with plenty of moisture and stimulates the regeneration of the skin cells. Pigmentation spots caused by aging are visibly alleviated.

  • Improves and supports the skin’s moisture-retention properties
  • Vitamin E against free radicals
  • Vitamin A and panthenol stimulate cell regeneration
  • Fruit acids accelerate skin renewal

Further information

Contains the root extract of the mulberry tree, which is well-known for its lightening effect. This plant has not only been used for a long time in traditional Chinese medicine, but also in Japan, where the cosmetic effects of the mulberry tree were discovered by accident when the plant was used as feed for silkworms and it was noticed that workers who were regularly in contact with this plant had particularly few signs of aging such as age spots, on their hands. Alongside skin-lightening properties, the mulberry tree extract is also used for its anti-aging properties and is therefore excellently suited to our DRULA® ANTI-AGING CREAM.

 

How to use: Apply several times a day for at least 2-3 weeks for a visible effect.

 

Note: Avoid contact with the eyes and mucous membranes. When using all skin lightening DRULA® products, avoid direct sunlight and wear an additional sun cream with at least LSF 25.

Application areas

If the production of melanin is impaired and the pigment is not distributed equally in the skin, visible pigmentation disorders (hyper- or hypopigmentation) are created which many people find aesthetically unpleasing. The formation of the skin pigment melanin takes place in the upper skin layers (epidermis) in specialised cells known as melanocytes. The dark spots on the skin are created through an over-production of melanin in the melanocytes or an overly large number of melanocytes in certain places.

There can be various causes for a pigmentation disorder, such as genetic disposition, or hormonal changes such as during pregnancy or owing to medication. The job of melanin is to protect the deeper skin layers from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays; as melanocytes react to the UV rays by producing melanin, these can influence the development of pigmentation disorders.

From the age of around 50, these brownish spots can be found on regions which are particularly strongly exposed to the sun such as the back of the hands, neckline, shoulders, arms, and face. In terms of colour, they vary between light brown and dark brown. The lighter versions are very similar to freckles. An increased number of melanocytes can often be observed here. Exposure to UV radiation over many years is one of the causes of so-called age spots. You should always keep an eye on age spots as well as “presumed” age spots because early forms of melanoma (malignant melanoma) can often look confusingly similar and these must be treated at an early stage. Other names for age spots are solar lentigo, birthmarks or liver spots.

Chloasmata (derived from the Greek word chloazin = to be green; melasma is derived from the Greek word melas = black; pregnancy spots), are pigmented skin areas, in the face, on the neckline or on the arms. This kind of pigmentation disorder is particularly common in women with dark hair. Chloasmata often occur in connection with hormonal changes such as during pregnancy (“mask of pregnancy”) or taking medications containing hormones such as the contraceptive pill. UV radiation also increases the likelihood of chloasmata developing.

Freckles (ephelides) are often caused by genetic disposition and frequently occur during childhood. The number of melanocytes is higher in the case of freckles, and the melanin production is thereby higher than average. The colouring of the freckles is intensified by UV radiation, which is why they tend to appear during the summer. People with fair skin are particularly prone to freckles.

This form of pigmentation typically occurs after the skin has become inflamed through acne or an injury to the skin.

A glance into our past

Our brand DRULA

The pharmacist and chemist Dr Otto Druckrey developed the idea for DRULA® (DRUckrey LAboratorium = DRULA) in Quedlinburg, Saxony-Anhalt, in the year 1925 and registered the trademark as a patent.

The first product of the cosmetics line was created in 1928: the DRULA Bleaching Wax (known today as the DRULA CLASSIC Bleaching Wax) for pigment disorders such as freckles and acne.

Distribution took place via sales representatives in chemists and the first international successes were achieved in 1934 and 1935 with awards at trade fairs in London and Florence.

The company was based in Quedlinburg until 1945. From 1953 onwards, DRULA® moved its headquarters into a new manufacturing building in Soest, Westphalia.

The ingredient Ephelidin was registered as a trademark in the year 1955.

From 1958 onwards, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong-Kong became the first export markets and DRULA® BLEACHING WAX rapidly became an export hit as a product for pigmentation spots, acne, and blemished skin.

DRULA® BLEACHING WAX became well-known international from 1960 onwards and further export markets (countries in West Africa, Central and South America, USA, Japan, and the Gulf States) were added.

The products have undergone continual development over the past 30 years and new product lines have been added. Renowned beauty shows and awards have given the cosmetics line further international recognition.

From our own experience and the positive feedback of our clients, we believe in the high effectiveness of the DRULA® products. Just like Dr. O. Druckrey, we give our very best each day to ensure the future of our products.
