A very popular product we used to sell was Lufenuron, used against Candida infection of the mucous membranes. This is our old Lufenuron treatment guide (PDF) when we still sold it for human use (not permitted anymore so we sell the same product for veterinarian use, same amount, same purity).

Our Derminator 2 is made in Europe with mostly US/European parts
Our dermaneedling machine, the Derminator™ 2 is hand-made in Europe by our own employees in our own facility and even though its switches, PSU and display are unavoidably produced in China, we meticulously sourced absolutely everything else in the UK, Germany or the US, after bad experiences with cheaper Chinese suppliers. European manufacturing is not dead yet - we operate from the Czech Republic, a low-tax, low postal fees EU country in the heart of Europe (West of Vienna) with only 4% unemployment and a highly skilled labor force. China will never be able to copy our machine and compete with us on price and quality. Chinese factories suffer from quality issues because they under-pay their employees, we maintain excellent quality (and thus minimize warranty issues and the cost of re-training employees when they leave to find better jobs) by over-paying our employees.
Plunkett: 3D modeling, injection mold design. K&S: micro-copper tubing. Farnell: Electronic components. Marco: EDPM closed-cell backstop in the motor. Eurocircuits: Main PCB. Anticor: Tape around the motor. Meanwell: Medical-rated power supply. First light: Cable pullstops. Kalestead: Cables. Magnet expert: Small motor magnets. The large magnet is Teflon-coated and made by the same factory that makes the magnets that go into Tesla cars - we keep that manufacturer a trade secret. Honeywell: Magnetic field Hall sensor. Evonik: Laser-cut insulation foil. Stefan Maier: Copper wire for the motor coils. CNC Design Ltd.: Coil winding machine.
We of course use many western-made tools and measurement instruments as well, such as a Gauss-meter from Hirst Magnetics Instruments Ltd. Our pliers are from the Swiss EREM. We use a Weller fume extracion system. Our soldering system costs over $1000 and is made by METCAL in the US. We use Somerset Solders Ltd. in the UK for our solder bath and low-temperature solder for the Hall sensor.
Our Derminator™ will not tear up your skin - others do!
Below is a batch of Derminator™ motors. It is so powerful that it can move the needles in and out of the skin with millisecond-speed, such that sideways movements of your hand do not cause sideways tearing of the skin. "Microtearing" can rip tears into the perimeter of facial pores, permanently enlarging them and thus the only safe Dermaneedling device is ours. Our Derminator™ uses an extremely innovative, sensor-feedback, computer-controlled reciprocating magnet as its actuator. So the motor is EXTREMELY powerful, not to turn your skin into hamburger meat but to PREVENT that you tear the needles sideways though your skin! A weaker motor can make the same nr. of pricks per second but its needles stay twice as long in the skin so as you move, the skin is torn! A disadvantage of our powerful motor is the weight and noise level. The HUGE advantages are that the pain is very minor (no sideways tearing!) and that it does not cause permanent skin damage - as all those Chinese "buzzer" pens do!
A Chinese "buzzing pen" like the Dr. Pen or Dermapen makes about 25 downwards stamps/sec. (if they claim more, they're lying). At least half of that time, its needles are inside your skin because their motors work like sewing machines. Our motor shoots the needles like a bullet at a very precise depth into the skin and then retracts them swiftly as well. This fast penetration speed causes no damage but prevents sideways tearing, whereas a weak motor can't rapidly enough put the needles in & out to avoid sideways microtearing, as you move the device over your skin.
Why we can sell it for $190?
Those Chinese "buzzers" such as Dr. Pen cost less than $10 to produce. Their presentation box + shipping costs them more than the actual product. Our machine is very expensive to make, in comparison but we do not pay for fake reviews, ads, YouTube "influencers", affiliates etc. And we do not include a (very expensive!) presentation box. And our machines last forever - so no warranty costs either. And because our machines last so long, we sell more cartridges.
Dr. Pen could easily charge $45 for their product and still make a nice profit. But "cheap" dermaneedling devices raise quality concerns, and the market is prepared, with sufficient marketing hype, to pay much more. So Dr. Pen and the like, all repurposed permanent makeup pens, carry a hefty price tag. Our machine would normally be sold only to clinics, for a price between $2000 and $5000 but our business model, as our website name says is based mainly on serving the home market. So we have a small but healthy profit margin, whereas the Chinese vendors simply make an outrageous amount of money while having no knowledge or care about dermaneedling - their only competencies are marketing and churning out slick-looking garbage.
