ADVANCED SKINCARE

Medik8 is dedicated to producing high quality skincare products with the best ingredients at the right strengths, and with a proven track record. The brand has tailored lines for specific skin solutions.

You may have heard of the term ‘professional’ products. This essentially means that the products are sold through professional outlets such as doctor’s offices, skincare clinics, medical and premium spas, plus a select number of specialist websites that deal with professional brands. Medik8 is a dedicated professional-only brand.

Medik8’s team represents over 40 years combined experience in skincare research and product formulation.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

  • The Right Ingredients

Some ingredients like the exfoliator Lactic Acid have two forms – called stereo-isomers where only one form really ‘works’. See our section on Chirality to understand better.

  • Professional Strength

Stronger is not always better – in fact one commonly used antioxidant actually gets weaker when more concentrated. Medik8 researchers find the active concentration that delivers the best results. And sometimes that means using less.

  • Ingredient Penetration

It is important that ingredients reach the target location to provide results. Some ingredients work on the skin surface. Others must penetrate the epidermis.

  • Enhancing Stability

Unfortunately some of the key active ingredients in skincare are unstable, and start breaking down as soon as you open the product or even while its on the shelf. That’s why Medik8 take stability of actives very seriously and is dedicated to improving stability with on-going research.

  • Freshness

Medik8 is a pioneer in delivering professional strength products fresh to the market. Our serums are handmade in small batch quantities at our UK laboratory. Being fresh means we can be assured of the highest stability and therefore potency.

This combination of values and philosophy is the reason why Medik8 has grown into a world renowned brand, recommended by dermatologists, doctors, nurses and professional skincare specialists.
