Wexler’s extensive product line comprises an Anti-Aging Starter Kit, a Resurfacing Microbrasion System and a Glyco Peel System. PerriconeMD Cosmeceuticals feature exclusive patent-protected active ingredients in products such as Firming Neck Therapy, Ceramic Eye Smoother and Advanced Face Firming Activator.

Nicholas Perricone himself, holds dozens of U.S. and international patents for the treatment of skin and systemic disease and for the topical anti-inflammatory ingredients for reversing and preventing damage to skin caused by factors such as age, the sun, the environment and hormonal changes.

Origins includes a Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Program said to optimize skin’s defenses. In addition, Weil uses turmeric as a key ingredient in the Conditioning Lip Balm offered in the line.

Howard Murad MD, a pioneer in the industry, introduced treatments for use in the comfort of one’s own home more than 20 years ago and has 60-plus products to his credit. The Murad Resurgence Collection and an Acne Complex Starter Kit are two of his offerings. With more than 17 U.S. patents for his skin care products and concepts, Murad was one of the first to create a formulation with exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids to treat the signs of aging and to utilize antioxidants to treat environmental damage and signs of aging.

Gross, a New York City dermatologist with a reputation among the fashion and beauty elite, created the MD Skincare line of products billed as the “surgical procedure alternative.” The MD Skincare line includes cleansers and moisturizers for more youthful skin, as well as products that address skin conditions such as rosacea and hyperpigmentation.
