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 professional brand.
Medik8’s team represents over 40 years combined experience in skincare research and product formulation.
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.
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.
It is important that ingredients reach the target location to provide results. Some ingredients work on the skin surface. Others must penetrate the epidermis.
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.
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 you can be assured of the highest stability and therefore potency.
