OUR HISTORY - 1994
Dermoteca is a Portuguese Pharmaceutical Laboratory founded in 1994, as a result of the entrepreneurial spirit of Pharmaceutical Dr. Cristina Varandas.
Dr. Cristina Varandas, was previously responsible for the launch in Portugal of well known brands of dermocosmetics, such as Uriage and Aveeno, having also worked on brands such as Institut Esthederm, among others.
Dermoteca, from its foundation to the present day, is a Portuguese laboratory specialized in Cosmetics, having started its activity with Dermatologists, Pediatricians and alongside the Portuguese Pharmacies. The beginning of its activity, had only Dr. Cristina Varandas and 3 more employees through representations of the internationally recognized brands Aveeno, OTC Ibérica and Melisana Pharma.
During the first 5 years, the growth of the Aveeno brand increased exponentially each year, with Portugal being considered a case study at European level.
OUR HISTORY - 2000
In 1999 Aveeno was acquired by the American multinational company Johnson & Johnson, and Dermoteca without any other option, lost this brand, so important for the maintenance of its existence and of all the jobs it had created until then.
In order to preserve its existence and keep all its employees, Dermoteca decided to venture out, starting a new project, unique and risky for the Portuguese reality.
Thus in 2000, the first Portuguese dermatological cosmetic brand - D'AVEIA is created.
At this time Dermoteca extends its activity beyond Dermatology and Pediatrics to the area of Gynecology - Intimate Care.
The rigor, safety and efficiency, which characterize all of its products, prompted D'AVEIA to quickly implement itself and occupy a place of reference in the home of all Portuguese.
Over the years, Dermoteca has always launched innovative, effective, safe and adapted cosmetics to the needs of the consumer, the Medical class and the Pharmaceutical class.
D'AVEIA continues to expand and complement itself with each passing year.
