Ingredients found within the MD Prescriptives Products;


Mandelic Acid is an increasingly popular alpha hydroxy acid derived from the hydrolysis of an extract of bitter almonds. It has been studied extensively for its uses in treating common skin problems such as photo-ageing, irregular pigmentation and acne. Mandelic acid accelerates the biological process of peeling the skin and helps control various skin care concerns. MD Prescriptives Mandelic Cleanser and MD Prescriptives Mandelic Toner make use of Mandelic Acid offering multifunctional benefits within a cleanser and toner to delicately yet deeply cleanse and clarify the skin to control and reduce excess oil production for a clear and even complexion.


Vitamin A Propionate, a key ingredient used within the MD Prescriptives Vitamin A Propionate, is an effective antioxidant that promotes healthy epidermal turn over. The skin is re-educated to function optimally through reducing corneocyte cohesion and enhancing desquamation. Vitamin A Propionate is a less sensitising form of Vitamin A whilst still offering the same benefits in the reduction of breakouts, improvement in fine lines and wrinkles and the prevention of hyperpigmentation. A Vitalising protocol for all problematic skin types.


MD Prescriptives Acne Solutions targets acne by acting as an anti-inflammatory, reducing redness and irritation often associated with acne prone skin. Niacinamide, a key ingredient, provides a keratolytic action encouraging cell turnover, while supressing the amount of oil or sebum that the glands secrete and thereby reducing the formation of blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores. In inclusion of Raspberry and Blackcurrant Leaf Extract fights against sebum oxidation thereby reducing the proliferation of bacteria responsible for acne formation.


MD Prescriptives Intensive Scar Repair is a rich emollient based product that combines the healing abilities of Copper Peptide with a series of clinically proven active dermaceutical ingredients to boost your natural Collagen and Elastin production. The inclusion of Wild Soybean Oil facilitates in the normal ‘basket-weave’ formation of collagen fibres thereby promoting even textured skin healing. Another key benefit of MD Prescriptives Intensive Scar Repair is that it minimises the risk of infection in the wound site thereby decreasing the risk of Hypertrophic and Keloid Scarring.


MD Prescriptives SkinLite utilises effect skin brightening ingredients which act as melanin antagonist, diminishing hyperpigmentation for an even, more radiant skin tone. This targeted prescription contains a unique triple-action formula to inhibit the formation of melanin by supressing tyrosinase, an essential enzyme necessary for the formation of melanin.


Lastly, no range is complete without the vital inclusion of sun protection, preventing photo-ageing and hyperpigmentation.
