Cosmeceuticals Medik 8
Medik8 is a pioneering skin research company working in the field of sensitive skin green cosmeceuticals. Results without the irritation! It is a myth that a product designed for sensitive skin would be less effective just because it is less irritating. In fact, latest independent research finds the opposite. Most skin is sensitive, it is just to what degree that distinguishes it from others. A simple change of washing powder can demonstrate this. People of all ages and skin types can periodically suffer from sensitive skin, making them particularly susceptible to certain irritating cosmeceutical ingredients. In fact, those suffering from acne, rosacea or psoriasis usually have greater skin sensitivity. Medik8 also recognise that people with sensitive skin and redness can also have oily, dry or combinations skin which is why our range for sensitive skin encompasses all skin types rather than offering one sensitive option. The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective professional skincare formulae less aggressive without reducing potency. They do this in many ways, for example using film-encapsulation, chirally correct actives, non-acid derivatives and patented anti-erythema technologies.
Medik8 Face Protocol, includes five advanced cleansers to match skin types, Cutting edge antioxidant formulae which prevent free-radical damage to the skin´s collagen and elastin matrix. Highly stable forms of all-trans-Retinol products which help to repair collagen damage, and Anti-ageing pro-collagen hydrators to protect the skin from photo-ageing and hyperpigmentation with our broad spectrum SPF25 moisturisers.
Medik8 Pretox RangeInjection Free is a specialist treatment based on the critical discoveries in the global beauty industry and Medik8’s own research. The gel formula reduces the appearance of all types of wrinkles: dynamic, static and wrinkle folds. Dynamic wrinkles are formed as a result of facial muscles contractions. Thus the most common locations of dynamic wrinkles are on the forehead, on the outer corners of the eyes (the so called “crow’s feet”) and between the eyebrows. When muscles contract, they cause the overlaying skin to crumple and form lines. Probably the most effective and popular treatment against dynamic wrinkles is Botulinum Toxin A. The treatment works by paralysing the muscles of facial expression, thus preventing their contraction and new lines from forming. Pretox is a second-generation injection-free solution for anyone over who would like to obtain similar results to Botulinum Toxin A treatment, without drastic measures. Pretox effectively rejuvenates the skin by working on all three layers of skin and on the muscular filaments, responsible for the facial expression.
