Medik8 is a British skin research company pioneering in cosmeceutical technologies. Our products are suitable for the most sensitive skin without compromising efficacy.
It is a myth that a product designed for sensitive skin would be less efficacious just because it is not irritating. Medik8 advances in active selection, delivery systems and mild base formulation means you no longer need to compromise. The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective ingredients less aggressive without reducing potency. This is achieved by using:
- Chirally correct actives
- Professional strength concentration
- Nanosome & liposome technologies (film encapsulation)
- Time release delivery system
- Enhanced penetration
- pH balanced formulae
- Enhanced stability
Medik8 ensure the “bio-availability” of all our products. “Bio-available” means that our active ingredients reach the layer of the skin where
they are meant to act! That's how we guarantee efficacy.
Imagine that your skin could self-defend itself from air pollution, cigarette smoke, computer screen rays, UV radiation, harsh weather… etc.– you would probably have smooth, wrinkle and blemish free, beautiful complexion. Unfortunately, the free-radical, sun-induced and environmental damage is something our skin can't cope with on its own. Medik8 can help revitalise your skin and prevent further damage with its revolutionary anti-oxidant, retinol, vitamin C and other cutting edge preventative and corrective products.
Devoted to delivering only the highest quality cosmeceutical formulae, Medik8 understands that today's customers are more results driven and have higher expectations from skin care products than their predecessors. Modern women wish to maintain smooth problem-free skin for longer but the fast pace of life, stress, career and unfavourable weather conditions work contradictory to this desire and accelerate the process of skin ageing. Therefore, for the last decade Medik8 has primarily concentrated their product research and development on the anti-ageing benefits and the treatment of major skin cosmetics concerns. Innovations in the use of peptide and antioxidant technologies as well as high-dose, clinically proven, multiple vector botanical extracts gave birth to an innovative collection of treatment products, formulated to help restore youthfulness to the skin as well as target skin redness, hyperpigmentation and acne. Medik8's ground-breaking antioxidant product line can help combat the sun-induced damage to the skin, trigger collagen synthesis, increase the skin's elasticity and density as well as improve the skin's texture and brighten the complexion.
Medik8 are focused on results and, where relevant, only uses airless packaging for their products to ensure the product remains as effective at the last dose as it is at the first. Medik8 also incorporates liposome and unique nanotechnology delivery systems for maximum penetration of actives.
The key cornerstones of the Medik8 philosophy are:
- Pharmacologist development – At Medik8, all products are researched and developed by in-house Pharmacologists, to ensure maximum effectiveness
- Cocktail theory – Medik8 products attack skin problems using multiple clinically proven actives, each at up to 3 times their trial dosages
- Bioavailability – There is no point having a magic bullet if there is no gun to fire it. Thus all Medik8 formulae are delivered to the target area either by using fat-based nanoemulsions or liposome/nanosome delivery vehicles
- Airless Packaging – Where relevant, all Medik8 products are stored in airless packs to ensure all ingredients stay as fresh and as potent from lab
production to final dose
