So what is Medik8?
Medik8 is a professional skincare brand. This means they are only sold predominantly by trained professionals through outlets such as skin clinics, doctors’ offices, medical and premium spas / salons, as well as some premium pharmacies and specialist websites.
You typically won’t find Medik8 sold in regular retail stores, which sometimes makes us a little bit more difficult to find, but for good reason. It is important to us that we remain an professional only brand, as we use high strength actives and clinically proven ingredients to provide you with amazing results. We believe that to truly provide the very best personal recommendations, requires a personalised skincare analysis with a trained professional. We will accept nothing less.
In our experience, retail skincare brands tend to have relatively high price tags with beautiful packaging and fragrance but with limited ingredient activity which is just not good enough for us. To be even-handed, many other professional brands lack the consumer appeal of popular brands you can find in the department store. Medik8’s professional skincare line strives to deliver it all: results, professional advice, beautiful packaging, lovely fragrances and textures.
Why choose between experience and results, when you can have it all with Medik8?
Cosmeceuticals are products that contain biologically active ingredients which enhance the effectiveness of skincare. Rather than expecting a moisturiser to do only its basic job, a cosmeceutical moisturiser is assumed to have one or more active compounds that offer skin benefits far greater than just superficial hydration. Medik8 is a cosmeceutical brand because we use high quality actives and proven ingredients in all of our products. We use many ingredients which have been clinically tested and have original research behind them in order to craft products which you can trust will work, without needing a prescription. Of course, all promises we make about results are substantiated by testing, research and feedback. We are as meticulous as you when it comes to challenging what does and doesn’t work.
Why do I need a professional skin therapist?
For the same reasons you visit a dentist or a doctor - qualified and trained skin therapists have expertise in providing tailored recommendations to achieve better skin health. Medik8 treatments are available only through trained professionals. Medik8 registered therapists are intensely educated in basic skin physiology and can successfully analyse your skin and deliver real, visible results with the products and treatments they recommend.
So what is the CSA Philosophy?
C: VITAMIN C
Well formulated, stabilised vitamin C provides all-important antioxidant protection as well as stimulating collagen production and blocking the development of pigment for smoother and brighter skin. Apply vitamin C in the morning for an all-day urban shield against everyday environmental factors which can cause skin ageing.
It is estimated that 80% of skin ageing is caused by the sun. Sadly, skin damage caused by the sun doesn’t only happen when it’s sunny. If it is light out, it means the sun’s rays can still reach you. Even on a cloudy day, you will still get approximately 50% of UV reaching your skin. Wearing high-strength sun protection every day is fundamental for a youthful complexion. With its importance in mind, Medik8 have a range of beautifully light but powerful sunscreens that protect and nourish the skin. Don’t worry, our high-tech Medik8 sunscreens do not feel sticky and greasy like those used at the beach. More likely, you'll probably not even realise your sumptuous day cream contains sunscreen.
A: VITAMIN A
As the Experts in Vitamin A (aka retinol) Medik8 has developed a wide range of night creams and serums to rejuvenate skin while you sleep. Vitamin A is quite simply the most important ingredient in anti-ageing skincare. It has a wealth of skin benefits including speeding up cellular renewal and reducing sebum production. It is crucial that Vitamin A is stabilised and has some form of controlled-release to ensure maximum potency with minimal irritation.
Anti-ageing skincare doesn’t need to be complicated - in fact, it shouldn’t be. Following our simple CSA philosophy will help improve the tone and texture of your skin; leaving it healthy and youthful-looking.
