Medik8 starts with Eight
We never compromise on results to achieve a beautiful experience. Our combination of 8 core principles supports our promise to you. It is the reason why Medik8 has grown into a world-renowned brand endorsed by dermatologists, doctors and professional skincare specialists and recommended by friends as the best solution for any skincare concern.
Medik8 is on a mission to demystify anti-ageing skincare. We believe looking 40 when you’re 50 is as simple as following our anti-ageing philosophy ‘vitamin C plus sunscreen by day, vitamin A by night’. We call this 'CSA'. You can read more about our CSA philosophy here. Find the products suited to your anti-ageing needs in our Skin Ageing solution.
While anti-ageing is at our core, Medik8 also provide solution specific skincare for a range of skin concerns. We understand customers often want their skincare to do more than one job for them. That’s why we can help clear blemishes or pigmentation while also helping to prevent premature skin ageing. View our range of solutions in the Medik8 shop.
We know what to add in and what to keep out. No fads or fashions. No parabens, phthalates or sulphates, no microbeads. Some ingredients get weaker when more concentrated. Medik8 researchers work tirelessly to find the sweet spot in every formulation; the concentration that delivers the best results with minimal irritation. Sometimes that means less is more. Medik8 uses clinically proven ingredients with original research behind them. We also use chirally correct molecules.
Many active ingredients in professional skincare are incredibly unstable and difficult to work with. We promise to deliver professional strength products to the market as freshly as possible. Our serums are handmade in small batches by our master blender at our own UK-based ISO certified labs. This helps ensure our products are still powerful and effective when they reach customers. You can be sure of the highest stability and potency. Read more about our unique processes.
5. FREE THINKING
We’re an independent company. This allows us to be totally free in product development with fresh ideas and swift new product creation. We develop all of our ideas and products in-house in our own state-of-the-art labs.
You’ll only find Medik8 in clinics, spas and specialist stores and websites that receive professional product training. This ensures you will receive the attention, care and tailored skincare advice you deserve. Find your local stockist here.
It is important that active ingredients can reach the correct location within the skin to provide results. We use liposome and micro-emulsion technologies that work like protective ‘bubbles’ around the molecules to ensure ingredients can reach the right place; avoiding being stuck in the upper layers of the skin and causing irritation. We develop and frequently patent our own original research. We love to collaborate with universities and academics.
Of course, we are 100% animal cruelty-free. We are also dedicated to minimising our impact on the environment whenever we can. Our manufacturing processes are as energy efficient as possible, without interfering with results. Medik8 uses recycled paper for all of its packaging and 40% recycled glass in our serum bottles. Even our buildings are run from 100% renewable energy sources. Read more about our eco values.
