Murad Skin Care Products got their start through the vision and under the direction of the founder Dr. Howard Murad. A doctor of dermatology, pharmacist and Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA, Dr. Murad has conducted extensive and pioneering research in the field of skincare.
He was the first doctor to create his own brand of skin care products and created the first medical spa. As one of the country's best dermatologists, according to Vogue magazine, Dr. Murad holds eighteen dermatology-related patents. His holistic approach to skin care combines health and wellness as foundational to beautiful skin and is the underlying philosophy that drives the Murad Product line.
Dr. Murad has worked long and hard to create a line of skin care products that would make healthy skin possible for as many people as possible. He has developed special products for problem skin of all types and recognizes and incorporates the connection between internal health and the external health in his research and product development.
As a dermatologist in the early 1970's, Dr. Murad treated his patients for ordinary skin ailments such as acne and psoriasis. A decade later he was urged by his clients to provide them with preventative treatments for aging. As a result, he developed what became the beginning of the Murad Product line when he formulated products for oily skin, skin smoothing and age spot and pigment lightening.
They were so successful and his clients were so happy with the results that he has continued to develop beneficial skin care regimens for a broad range of skin conditions and needs.
Dr. Murad was one of the very first dermatologists to use antioxidants in the treatment of the skin. He incorporated the antioxidant properties of AHAs, vitamin C and pomegranate in his skin care products and as supplements to benefit the skin from the inside out.
He opened a day spa where he trained and supervised estheticians to deliver new and advanced skincare treatments to his clients. He then developed a line of skincare nutritional supplements in 1995 and was the first to take such a bold step in the treatment of the skin.
His research also led him to the connection between skin and water when he discovered that aging skin results from water loss after menopause that causes wrinkles and sagging as well as cellulite and stretch marks. His books explore these innovative discoveries and include Wrinkle-Free Forever and The Cellulite Solution.
Understandably, the most popular Murad Products are the anti-aging products such as the Murad Intensive Wrinkle Reducer that contains Murad's exlusive anti-aging GlycoNutrient Complex. Users say they see results immediately even as it continues to firm and hydrate skin over time. Clinical results show a 33% reduction of fine lines and wrinkles in four weeks and a 55% reduction in twelve weeks. Hydration of the skin improves 44% in four weeks as well.
Murad Products have something for everyone. A line of acne treatment products include Clarifying Cleanser, Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel, Post-Acne Spot Lightening gel and more to treat every acne skin care concern. A line of products that create an environmental shield were designed to protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun and heal damage that has already occurred.
In addition to anti aging regimens, Murad Products also has products that provide focused detoxification of the skin and those that reduce redness. Whatever your skincare need, Murad Products has a product to treat it effectively.
