Effective skincare for sensitive skin

Medik8 is a skin research company invested in pioneering the cosmeceutical technology to provide skincare products suitable for sensitive skin without compromising efficacy. Medik8 wanted to create products that could be used by everyone, even if you do suffer from some form of skin sensitivity.

I bet you didn't know that most skin is sensitive, it is just to what degree that distinguishes it from others. 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.

It is a myth that a product designed for sensitive skin would not be as effective just because it is less irritating.

It was previously incorrectly assumed that aggressive products causing significant inflammation gave the best results (the idea being that aggressive products provoke a healing response) but current opinion, based on the latest research, is that excessive inflammation can damage cells causing long term skin damage and perversely causing premature skin ageing.

The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective ingredients 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. 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

Medik8 combines the best ingredients with an antioxidant at the right strength to deliver results. Medik8 believes in solution specific products, proven results, a core anti-ageing philosophy, skin safe ingredients to minimise irritation, eco-friendly packaging with lab quality engineering in small batches.

Medik8 is 100% backed by science and the Medik8 team are constantly learning and constantly seeking to improve their products. The main active ingredients in Medik8 are Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Hydroxy Acids and Sunscreen for ultimate benefits.
