TikTokers are obsessed with science-backed skincare brand Medik8; these are the products they want you to know

Medik8 is a skincare brand that was founded in 2009 by Elliot Isaacs, a pharmacology and biochemistry graduate. In 2009, the brand introduced the “CSA Philosophy,” which emphasizes the use of well-formulated, stabilized vitamin C serum and face sunscreen during the day and a vitamin A (retinol) at night for younger-looking skin. Vitamin A is considered to be the most important ingredient in youth-boosting skincare as it speeds up cellular renewal and reduces sebum production. Medik8 also introduced their progressive strength Crystal Retinal ladder, which allows users to select the retinoid concentration that works best for them, as well as the r-Retinoate range, which features a breakthrough in vitamin A skincare technology called encapsulated retinyl retinoate. This molecule fuses together retinol and retinoic acid to create a unique super molecule that has been patented around the world and was the first of its kind to be published in the British Journal of Dermatology.
