About MD Formulations Ingredient Technology:

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) - A group of naturally occurring substances found in many common fruits and foods such as Glycolic Acid (from sugar cane), Lactic Acid (from sour milk), Maltic Acid (from apples), Tartaric Acid (from grapes), and Citric Acid (from citrus fruits).

   - Why Glycolic Acid?  It's the smallest in molecular size of all the AHAs and has the greatest penetration potential due to it's size.  It promotes exfoliation of dead skin cells, which is the skin's natural rejuvenation process.  By doing so, healthier, more youthful skin cells can be revealed.  It's also been proven to be beneficial for oily, problem-prone skin, as it helps keep pores clear of excess dead cells.


Glycolic Acid vs. MD Formulations Glycolic Compound:  

Glycolic acid in its pure form has a very low pH and may cause redness and irritation to the skin.  MD Formulations patented technology contains water, glycolic acid and ammonium glycolate to create a unique buffered product... with a pH compatible with the skin's natural pH (Glycolic Compound pH range is from 3.8 in regular products to 4.4 in sensitive skin products).  Glycolic Compound delivers the same benefits of glycolic acid without the irritating side effects.  It's safe for even the most sensitive skin and provides maximum results:

  • Promotes rapid skin exfoliation without irriation

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Promotes healthier, younger looking skin

  • Significantly improves the look of photo-damaged skin

  • Dramatically improves hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone

  • Works as a rapid delivery system

  • Minimizes pore clogging and reduces appearance of pores

  • Helps improve acne blemishes


MD Formulations Vit-A-Plus

Utilizes two Vitamin A derivatives - Retinyl Palmitate and Retinol which work beneath the skin surface where wrinkles and acne problems first develop.  The Vit-A-Plus complex delivers similar benefits to Retin-A without the irritating side effects.  The results are the following:

  • Nourishes and regulates skin cell production

  • Increases epidermal thickness

  • Reduces the number and depth of wrinkles

  • Clarifies and improves skin color and tone

  • Reduces acne blemishes

  • Diminishes the appearance of large pores and oily shine.

MD Formulations Broad Spectrum Antioxidants:

Pollution, sun exposure, smoke and environmental factors cause oxidation and free radicals which damage the skin.  Antioxidants are substances that prevent and slow down cell oxidation and free radical damage and allow the cells to function normally, so cells stay young and vital.

  • Co-enzyme Q10

  • Vitamin C

  • Superoxide Dismustase (SODs)

  • Green Tea Extract
