Dr Murad’s Recipe for Beautiful Skin
One of the foundational concepts of my approach to skincare is that beautiful skin is healthy skin and healthy skin is beautiful. Early on in my career as a dermatologist, I realised there were three key processes that rob skin of both health and beauty: free-radical oxidation, inflammation triggered by irritation and last but not least, dehydration.

I began to experiment with different combinations of ingredients that addressed all three of these damaging processes. Eventually I perfected just the right “recipe” of antioxidants, anti-irritants and hydrators and blended it into every one of my formulas. 

These three classes of ingredients are now recognized as essential to maintaining skin health. Here’s what you need to know about each class:
  • Antioxidants - pomegranate extract, vitamin C and grape seed extract - help protect against possible sun damage and fight the damaging free radicals responsible for much of what we perceive as skin aging, including fine lines.
  • Anti-irritants -  zinc, arnica, aloe vera and goldenseal - neutralize redness and prevent inflammatory cell damage.
  • Hydrators - ceramides, amino acids and essential fatty acids - strengthen the skin’s barrier and help build strong cell membranes. These ingredients protect against dryness and fine lines by replenishing naturally occurring skin lipids, improving moisture retention and protecting skin from the environment.
