Medik8 - Cosmeceuticals
Cosmeceuticals are the marriage of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. There are quite prevalent and typical cosmeceuticals are anti-aging beauty products. Many contain ingredients that change the biological function of the skin to diminish or improve the apprearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Medik8, a cosmeceutical company, is based in the UK and was founded in 2004 by pharmacologist, Elliot Isaacs. Medik8 offers a full range of anti-aging skincare products, their moto is, "results without the irritaton". You don't need to scrub and clean your skin to the point of redness or irritation in order for the product to be effective.
Cleansers, serums, creams, injection-free fillers, plumpers and peels, the Medik8 Face protocols are divided into four categories: Cleanse, Prevent, Correct and Hydr8. Each category caters to a specific skin condition such as redness, hyperpigmentation, acneic problems or lines and wrinkles.
Hyperpigmentation, also known as dark spots or age spots tends to increase with age. Medik8 White Balance® Serum tackles hyperpigmentation on the face, décolleté and hands by incorporating three next generation skin brightening complexes: Cosmo® C250 which helps reduce melanin synthesis and minimise brown spots; Niacinamide, a Vitamin B3 complex that effectively helps to whiten the skin by blocking the transference of melanin to the surface of the skin; and finally Gigawhite® - a unique blend of botanical extracts which helps inhibit the mechanism involved in melanin biosynthesis. White Balance Serum does not cause photosensitivity and is suitable for both localised and generalised hyperpigentation. Age spots can be a thing of last year.
