Company Overview:
Dermik Laboratories is a pharmaceutical with nearly sixty years of experience in the development, marketing, and distribution of innovative prescription pharmaceutical products. Recently, the company created a new division called Dermik Aesthetics that will focus on marketing innovative, enduring, and reliable treatments to improve appearance and well-being. Dermik's primary objective is to foster healthy-looking skin and offering people better quality of life.

Dermik was one of the first companies to make a topical treatment for acne; that product evolved into the Dermik Laboratories' lead product, Benzamycin, which was released in 1985 and combines acne medicines benzoyl peroxide and erythromycin in one topical gel. The company also makes Carac, a product to treat actinic keratosis, or pre-cancerous skin lesions that uses AP Pharma's Microsponge technology.
