    Derma E, the pioneer of vitamin-rich, high-performance antioxidant skincare products

    July 28, 2013

    Dr. Linda Miles, Vice President and Chief Formulator for Derma E, the pioneer of vitamin-rich, high-performance antioxidant skincare products joins eHealth Radio & the Skin Care Channel.


    Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Linda Miles discuss the following:

    • Please tell us a little bit about Derma E.
    • What is the definition of natural skincare?
    • What vitamins/natural botanicals are the best for skin’s health?
    • Why are the quality of ingredients so important for natural skincare products (for example Vitamin E)?  And how does Derma E find quality ingredients?
    • Why are antioxidants good for the skin?

    Duration: 8:10

    Dr. Linda Miles, DOM, Vice President and Formulator of derma e®, has blended her expertise in complementary health care and biotechnology for over three decades, pioneering the development of innovative, high-performance natural personal care products.

    As a health practitioner and business leader in the industry, Miles has been at the forefront of the cultural shift to natural health solutions. “People still ask me what the benefit of using natural products is, and I always respond that ‘nature knows best’,” Miles says. “The power of nature is pretty amazing, and we often can’t re-create that complexity and balance in a lab by using just synthetic ingredients. Nature provides us with healing agents that are superior in performance to chemical alternatives—antioxidants are our best example of that. Many people were under the
    misconception that ‘natural’ means a product is not as strong. We’re changing that ideology and have proven time and again, via scientific channels, that natural can be even more effective than man-made.”

    As part of her lifelong passion in holistic health, Miles received status as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DOM) from the state of New Mexico.  She also earned her Masters Degree in Oriental Medicine from Emperors College of Traditional Oriental Medicine and is a Licensed Acupuncturist.  Once a week, Miles donates her time giving Chinese herb and acupuncture treatments to MEND clients.  MEND, Meet Each Need with Dignity, is a non-profit organization that helps relieve the effects of poverty through a holistic and humanitarian approach.

    In Miles spare time, she enjoys horseback riding, hiking, camping, waterskiing, and organic gardening with red worm compost.  With a passion for animals, she also loves spending time with her horses, dogs and cats, and raising Chinese Silkies, a breed of chicken named for its unique silky feathers.

    Miles and her husband Ron live on a three-acre ranch in Acton, California surrounded by animals. They have two daughters, Sonny and Kristy, who share her interest in science and healing. Their older daughter Sonny graduated from MIT, spent two years in the Peace Corp in Paraguay and is currently a medical resident at UCSF. Their younger daughter Kristy is a recent graduate from Tufts University and is currently a licensed DVM who resides in Massachusetts.

    • More and more products are moving towards eco/all natural ingredients.  Do you see yourself developing more products that fit into the eco/all natural category?

    • Duration: 6:29

      Entrepreneur, Jennifer Gerard started the highly successful Whitening Lightning as a mobile teeth-whitening service in Los Angeles.  Within two years, she saw her business reach record internet sales with the introduction of her flagship product, the Whitening Lightning Super Booster Teeth Whitening Pen.

      Never one to rest on her laurels, Gerard realized a growing demand for teeth whitening products that could achieve professional results at a lesser cost. Gerard soon introduced the Whitening Lightning Professional Home Teeth Whitening System.  Again, she saw record sales with daily orders originating in over 80 countries.

      Today, Gerard’s online professional teeth whitening products continue to break sales records and have gained critical acclaim and attention from such publications as InStyle, Soap Opera Weekly, OK, US Weekly and on many beauty blogs and websites.

      Raised in the Santa Clarita Valley outside Los Angeles, Gerard attended California State University at Northridge where she studied Political Science. With plans to attend law school, she was soon distracted by a high paying sales job in corporate America. After 22 years as a sales manager and with encouragement from a friend, Gerard started her own business traveling to peoples’ homes and offices doing teeth whitening. “At first, I did not want to do teeth whitening because I thought it was disgusting to put my fingers in other people’s mouths”, laughs Gerard.  This ‘disgust’ soon subsided when she learned about the growing need for such services and how profitable it could be.
