Acid, Niacinamide, L-Mandelic acid, Chlorhexidine
Gluconate and Tea Tree Oil. These actives
improve the function of the skin and regulate
the work of sebaceous glands. Salicylic
Acid helps the skin to shed dead cells,
decreases redness and inflammation, prevents
pore-clogging and refines skin texture.
L-mandelic acid is a unique lipid-soluble
alpha hydroxy acid allowing pore-deep
cleansing together with Glycolic acid
style exfoliation but without the stinging.

Medik8 is the British skin research company pioneering cosmeceutical technologies to make the most effective ingredients suitable for even the most sensitive skin, yet crucially without compromising efficacy. Medik8 cosmeceuticals may be used by everyone. Apart from being kinder to the skin, it turns out this new technology is kinder to the planet too. That’s why Medik8 is known as the ‘Green Cosmeceutical’ brand. 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, which can be exacerbated by some aggressive treatment products that they use. The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective ingredients less aggressive without reducing potency. We do this in many ways for example using film-encapsulation, chirally correct actives, non-acid derivatives and patented anti-erythema technologies. Of course, using any effective strength actives, for example retinols and fruit acids, will cause some stinging to even the toughest skins, but Medik8 pharmacologists have minimised the degree of irritation and in some cases made it absent all together. No longer are the most powerful and effective ingredients beyond the reach of people who want the gain without the pain! And who doesn’t want that? Ask your skin care professional about what Medik8 can do for you.
