DermaSleep, found online at DermaSleep.com, is a new type of “As Seen on TV” health and wellness product that promises people the ability to “fall asleep faster, sleep longer, and wake up refreshed.”
How Does It Work?
Melatonin is a chemical that naturally occurs in the body and is directly responsible for creating the sleepy feeling that puts you to sleep and helps your body stay asleep. According to the DermaSleep website, as we age, our bodies produce less and less melatonin which results in more and more sleepless nights.
One of the best ways to solve this problem is to introduce more melatonin into your system through supplements. Unfortunately, this website also says that taking traditional oral melatonin supplements is problematic because they can lose “up to 90% of their potency through the stomach.”
So to solve this problem, the DermaSleep supplement is available in a topical spray form. The website says that you spray the DermaSleep melatonin directly onto the skin of your neck where it will be delivered to your bloodstream through your skin.
The website says that this unique application makes their productive extremely effective, which allows people to rely on a natural form of sleep aid rather than through reliance on a prescription sleep medication.
DermaSleep.com says they are currently offering their customers a promotional deal where they can purchase two sprays for a single purchase price of $10.00 plus a Processing and Handling charge of $6.95 for the first and for the second spray, for a total purchase price of $23.90.
The website says that all products are available to be returned within 30 days of the purchase date for a full refund of the purchase price less the cost of Processing and Handling, but unfortunately they do not provide detailed instructions on how to successfully return your product for a refund. Customers must contact Customer Service before returning their item to get that necessary information.

Unfortunately this is a fairly new product and there are no real customer or user reviews available at this time, making it difficult for prospective customers to decide whether or not this is a product they are interested in trying for themselves.
But the real question is whether or not melatonin can be effectively absorbed by your body through the skin, and the short answer is yes. There have been replicated academic studies showing that melatonin can effectively be absorbed through the skin and result in elevated levels of melatonin for extended time periods.
However, these studies were done with very specific measurements and ingredients – the melatonin must be in certain concentrations and there are other ingredients besides melatonin necessary for stabilization. Since DermaSleep does not publish any information on their ingredients, there is no way of knowing whether their product fulfills these requirements.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Topically applied melatonin is actually a very popular topic of discussion online at this time, and it does appear that there may be similar products on the market. Certainly there are many, many different forms of melatonin available at your local vitamin or grocery store, and not just as a pill that you swallow, but also in drinkable products, sprays that go under your tongue for absorption directly into the blood stream, and more.
