About the Brand

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 as they are kind to the skin, and also the planet. That’s why Medik8 is known as the ‘Green Cosmeceutical’ brand.

The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective ingredients less aggressive without reducing potency. They do this by using film-encapsulation, chirally correct actives, non-acid derivatives and patented anti-erythema technologies.

About Medik8...

Discover the transformative power of Medik8, a leading skincare brand renowned for its commitment to science-backed formulas and innovative solutions. Known for its innovative and science-driven approach to beauty, Medik8 is an anti-ageing skincare brand that thinks like a natural brand. Medik8 seeks to create simple routines that result in healthy, ‘Beautiful Skin for Life’.

Founded in 2009 by Elliot Isaacs, the vision for Medik8 was to create a skincare brand that combined scientific research with sustainability and ethical practices. The brand's mission is to produce effective, safe, and eco-friendly skincare solutions that target common skin concerns.

Their CSA philosophy is based on a simple approach to skincare – CSA stands for using vitamin C and Sunscreen during day and vitamin A in the evening.

At the core of Medik8's success lies its unparalleled dedication to scientific research. Pioneers of cutting-edge product technologies in skincare, Medik8 collaborates with leading scientists, dermatologists, and pharmacologists to develop cutting-edge formulations. The brand incorporates ingredients that have been scientifically proven to address specific skin issues, such as ageing, acne, pigmentation, and sensitivity. Witness the transformative power of Medik8's science-backed formulations.

Medik8 offers a wide range of products that cater to every skin concern. From nourishing cleansers to potent serums, replenishing moisturisers, protective sunscreens, and targeted treatments, Medik8 has it all. Each product is carefully formulated with high-quality ingredients to deliver maximum efficacy.

The brand was one of the first to introduce encapsulated retinol, a form of vitamin A that is more stable and less irritating to the skin. Medik8 also incorporates other advanced technologies, such as time-release delivery systems and liposomal encapsulation, ensuring optimal ingredient absorption and long-lasting benefits.

Their iconic Crystal Retinal range is hailed by dermatologists and beauty editors alike and includes 5 progressive strengths of face serum and 3 progressive strengths of eye cream for firmer, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin after just 1 tube.

For maximum glow and minimum irritation, Medik8 have created a range of acids to help exfoliate, smooth, and visibly brighten stubborn skin concerns. Working to exfoliate and brighten your skin, using acids in your skincare regimen transforms skins texture in just a few weeks.

Which acid is right for your skin?

PHA - Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) work to exfoliate the skin, just like AHAs, but are less sensitising to the skin as they absorb gradually. As well as brightening the skin, PHAs help to support collagen production and strengthen the skin barrier function. PHAs are perfect for those with sensitive skin wanting to address signs of ageing and dehydration. You’ll find PHAs in the hero Medik8 Press & Glow Tonic, a hydrating daily toner that exfoliates the skin surface to boost your skins glow.

BHA - Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHAs) work to decongest and exfoliate the skin to help treat breakouts, blackheads and oiliness and leave skin looking clear and balanced. Salicylic Acid is the BHA used in skincare treatments. You’ll find BHAs used in Medik8 Press & Clear and Blemish Control Pads and Blemish SOS.

AHA – Alpha Hydrozy Acids (AHAs) work to exfoliate the skin polishing away dead skin cells to address uneven skin texture and lacklustre complexion. Perfect to target signs of ageing, AHAs also stimulate collagen production to leave skin looking healthy and glowing. The most common AHAs are glycolic acid and lactic acid. You’ll find AHAs in Medik8 Sleep Glycolic, a bi-weekly treatment to decongest, visibly brighten and smooth skin overnight with no down time.

Kind to your skin and the planet, Medik8 products can be used by everyone. One of our favourites are the Surface Radiance Cleanser, the cleansing gel is formulated with AHA and BHA for smoothed and refined skin texture. We also love the Liquid Peptides formulated with 30% peptides to combat signs of ageing. Known as the green cosmeceutical brand, Medik8 use film-encapsulation, high-performing actives, non-acid derivatives, and patented anti-erythema technologies in their products to ensure their formulas are less aggressive but just as effective.
