Why choose Medik8?
Medik8 are experts in anti-ageing skincare. Its products are designed to deliver lasting results and beautiful skin for life.
Medik8 is a world-renowned brand that was born in the UK. It was the love child of Elliot Isaacs, who studied physiology, pharmacology and biochemistry at university. He wanted to create a cosmeceutical brand that was driven by science but sourced from nature. Fair trade and sustainability were also part of his founding ethos.
Elliot has long been an advocate of Vitamin C and sunscreen by day and Vitamin A by night to maintain a more youthful complexion.
Medik8 is recommended by many skin care professionals and dermatologists due to its targeted formulations.
The brand promises “skin care that you’ll love, with visible results”. It’s aimed largely at those with more mature skin looking to prevent and reverse those unwanted signs of skin ageing.
Medik8 uses cutting edge technology for its formulations, including liposomal and micro-emulsion technologies to ensure that active ingredients can penetrate deeper into the skin rather than being stuck in the upper layers.
We particularly like that it offers progressive strengths for its core actives Vitamin A and Vitamin C. This allows you to build your results without compromising your skin. And that’s the way we like it.
Medik8’s philosophy is based on eight principles: simple, tailored, clean, artisan, free thinking, professional, technology and ethical.
The products are made in a dedicated super lab in the UK to the exacting standards of Elliot and his team of cosmetic and product experts.
The brand uses recycled paper for all its packaging and 40% recycled glass for its serum bottles.
As you would expect, Medik8 doesn’t test on animals.
At Skin Clinica, we intentionally choose products that have proven actives and deliver results, while also respecting the health of the skin.
The best way to build your “beautiful skin for life” is to start caring for it early. Prevention always works better than correction. Did you know that 80% of the skin care results you achieve are determined by your at-home skin care, and only 20% by regular clinical treatments?
Start today by putting together the right skin care routine and products that get results, or give us a call to help you do it.
Medik has an extensive offering of advanced cosmeceuticals, including some at different strengths. Our picks include the Medik8 Retinol Eye TR, Medik8 Advanced Night Eye, Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3, Medik8 C-Tetra, Medk8 Liquid Peptides and Medik8 Breakout Defence + Age Repair. Serious skin care to deliver serious results.
We’ve intentionally excluded those Medik8 products that include essential oils or high levels of essential oils and fragrant components because we take the position that they’re not good for your skin period. Essential oils can lead to skin sensitisation and result in pigmentation, and who wants that! You can read more about the why by reading our page Essential Oils in Skin Care.
The Medik8 Retinol Eye TR and Medik8 Advanced Night Eye are the perfect power couple. The Retinol Eye TR is a super-targeted serum that is one of the best products we’ve come across to those smooth fine lines and brighten those dark circles around the eyes. Its lightweight texture makes it effortless sink into the skin so that it can get to work right way. This eye serum use time release technology to deliver the Retinol gradually throughout the night. This ensures maximum results without overwhelming the skin. It contains 0.1% Retinol and Vitamin E in a base of silky Safflower Seed Oil.
To take your results to the next level and tackle other eye concerns, follow with the Medik8 Advanced Night Eye, a rejuvenating and repairin eye cream. This cream is optimised for use with the Retinol Eye TR, but is perfect for use on its own during the day. It has wonderfully hydrating agents to deeply quench dryness and plump up the skin for an immediate fresher look. Hesperidin, Caffeine, Niacinamide and L’Ascorbic Acid work together to brighten the eye area and relieve that tired look. You’ll also two ceramides to replenish delicate eye skin and three celebrity peptides to build collagen and elastin to diminish the look of those crows’ feet and sad hoods. There’s also Midnight Repair Complex, an innovative cell-repairing peptide combined with antioxidants Saskatoon Fruit Extract and Dragon Fruit Extract to provide antioxidant protection and support repair.
With these two eye products, you really can get the results you’ve been looking for.
Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3
When it comes to anti-ageing skin care, retinoids are considered royalty. You can read all about retinoids and what makes them truly special in our blog.
What’s special about Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3 is that it uses Retinaldehyde rather than Retinol. Retinalydehyde is an advanced derivative of Vitamin A that is more potent than Retinol and more reliably converted to Retinoic Acid in the skin, which is the form recognised by the skin and activates cellular changes. Retinaldehyde delivers better results and faster, but at the same time is less irritating.
This serum cream uses 0.03% encapsulated Retinaldeyde to enable gradual delivery throughout the night. It also uses a stabilising system and airless pump technology to protect the Retinaldehyde.
Now you can get serious anti-ageing results at home without having to resort to prescription Tretinoin and go through severe irritation, dryness and redness. Who’s got time for that, right?
Medik8 C-Tetra uses the latest in Vitamin C technology, Tetrahexydecyl Ascorbate. This newest addition to the Vitamin C family is a potent but stable form of C that comes in an oil base s that it penetrates the skin better than L’Ascorbic Acid, which is water based. Medik8 C-Tetra is powered up with Vitamin E to combat sun and pollution damage to the skin and protect it from premature ageing.
Tetrahexydecyl has been shown to function as an antioxidant, support skin repair, brighten the skin, diminish hyperpigmentation and stimulate collagen.
This serum comes in a base of Jojoba so that it’s light and sinks into the skin quickly so you complete your morning skin care routine.
Medik8 Liquid Peptides
Not everyone wants to or needs to pull out the big guns when it comes to anti-ageing skin care.
If you have sensitive skin, rosacea, or are pregnant or breast-feeding, Retinol is not going to be for you. If you want to keep your skin looking and glowing without the Retinol commitment, peptides are the go. These little darlings coax your skin to behave more like that of younger skin, by sending signals to build more collagen and elastin.
The Medik8 Liquid Peptides serum will bring your skin back to life with a 30% peptide cocktail and pioneering drone technology to ensure targeted delivery. It also contains Lactic Acid to refine the skin, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide to promote skin barrier function and Hyaluronic Acid and Green Algae Extract to slate your skin’s thirst and plump up those fine lines so you can look radiantly you without the long lag time.
