MD Formulations was the first company to license a patent on glycolic acid throughout the world. In 1992, MD Formulations was introduced to the international market. MD Formulations discovered that matching their formulations to the pH level of the skin is the key to developing a product with less risk of irritation. The patented glycolic compound is still highly effective but it is gentle and safe for those with more sensitive skin. The glycolic compound has the ability to resurface the skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as dark spots and other types of discoloration.

Learn More About MD Formulations
Glycolic acid offers many benefits for the skin, and MD Formulations brings this powerful ingredient to life in a form that is much less likely to cause skin irritation, opening up the doors to alpha hydroxy acid skin care to virtually anyone who wants healthier, more attractive skin. In its raw form, glycolic acid has a very low pH, indicating that it is highly acidic. The scientists at MD Formulation have found a way to raise the pH of glycolic acid without compromising its effectiveness at exfoliating the skin. As a result, the products made by the brand offer truly gentle resurfacing for the complexion to diminish the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, sun damage and roughness.
With the MD Formulations approach to product formulation, selecting the ideal skin care products for your daily regimen becomes easier than ever. Begin by selecting the Cleanse formula that is ideal for your skin type and get the benefits of a purifying formula that removes both cellular debris and surface dirt and oils. Follow your MD Formulations cleanser with the Correct and Hydrate products that best suit your skin profile. Complete your regimen with Protect products and you'll help to diminish the harmful effects of sun exposure and free radicals in the environment to help maintain the beautiful youthfulness of your skin for as long as possible.
Whether you are most concerned about signs of aging, breakouts, controlling oil or skin discoloration, MD Formulations has the products you need for healthier skin.
MD Formulations Customer Reviews
MD Formulations Benzoyl Peroxide 10 - Fresh, clean products - ordered sample kit which gave me chance to try several products - will not need all items, but it was good to try small size.
MD Formulations Face And Body Scrub - My face never looks better than when I'm using this product. The pumice of the scrub is effective in exfoliating dead surface cells with little pressure. Works great to prevent my adult acne and speed healing of my face, accelerating cell replenishment/ turnover. You will need a good moisturizer after use.
MD Formulations Vit-A-Plus Intensive Anti-Aging Serum - I've been using MD Formulation for over 20 years. And I have less crinkles than all my friends!! LOL!
MD Formulations Glycare Lotion - It really stops breakouts in just 1 week. I used this one, and facial cleanser, the antioxidant serum and the total protector 15;) Now I have no more acne! Love it!!
MD Formulations Facial Cleansing Gel For Oily Skin - This product works! It cleans, removes make up, removes oil and grease from air pollution I pick up walking in the City, or riding a bike or motorcycle. Doesn't strip or irritate, but it does exfoliate and I use a toner and moisturizer afterward.
MD Formulations Critical Care Shielding Creme - I bought the sensitive kit containing this product based on one of the other reviews. I am super-pleased with this product. Due to weather conditions, my skin needed a repair/barrier product. The very first time I put this on, I could feel & see my skin relax & smooth.

Easy, effective sets. Searching for a specific skin solution but not sure where to start? Have you recently noticed a pesky line or blemish? Whatever the issue, MD Formulations tackles these common skincare issues with pre-packaged sets customized for specific concerns. Inside the Adult Anti-Blemish Kit, you’ll find a facial cleanser, lotion and Vit-A-Plus Clearing Complex to clarify your skin without overdrying. You’ll also receive the Moisture Defense Antioxidant Serum and Total Protector 30 to protect skin from premature aging. If wrinkles and aging skin are your main concern, look to the 7-piece Anti-Aging Kit, which includes a facial cleanser, moisturizer, serums and eye creams for day and night. When used as a set, clinical tests confirmed a 53% improvement in overall skin texture. Additional kits also combat redness, sensitive aging skin, hyperpigmentation and teen acne.
Real results. Why resort to pricey in-office procedures when you can have dramatic results with at-home products? MD Formulations’ effective products target wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scars and dull skin texture. To treat age spots and sun damage, the Vit-A-Plus Illuminating Spot Treatment combines glycolic acid, retinol and licorice to diminish discoloration, including post-acne marks and freckles. For repairing deep lines and wrinkles, try a night cream like Vit-A-Plus Intensive Anti-Aging Serum, which contains the potent Alpha Retinyl Complex — a blend of alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin A and antioxidants to correct signs of premature aging and prevent future wrinkles. If you have sensitive skin that reacts easily to environmental factors, defend it from free radicals that can result in hyperpigmentation, fine lines and sagging skin with the Critical Care Skin Repair Complex, an advanced antioxidant-rich formula. Best yet, it also reduces redness and irritation and heals skin after cosmetic procedures.
Quick-fix solutions. Who said you have to wait weeks to see results? With MD Formulations’ Temps Collections, you have instant options at your fingertips. Interested in filling in fine lines and wrinkles? The Temps Wrinkle Filler Plus Deep Crease Relaxer is a lightweight cream that fills in creases and plumps wrinkles, offering an alternative to in-office fillers. This is a great choice for wrinkles like crow’s feet and expression lines. To help with under-eye circles after a late night, the Brighten & Tighten Eye Serum is a roller ball pen that erases darkness and puffiness. Even large pores and shine can be instantly minimized with the Oil Control Pore Refiner, a cream-gel that uses botanical ingredients and micro-sponges to absorb oil and leave skin with a smooth, matte finish.

25-34Gender: FSkin Type: combinationIt's effective.... - 1/13/2014 9:08:39 PM I have been using benzoyl peroxide products for years. This one is effective in preventing and treating acne, but it isn't the finest consistency. It does however rub into skin, leaving no uneveness behind. Not super expensive, but not the cheapest. Probably has higher quality ingredients than other BP products out there, many of which irritate my skin. I'll repurchase.KCFan Florida Pros: absorbs quickly, smooth textureOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use

25-34Gender: FSkin Type: combinationJust Average - 12/13/2013 2:31:18 PM This eye cream is okay, but nothing spectacular compared to other products. I found that it seems to absorb well, but then later when applying make up, I noticed that it left a weird residue. RoC Retinol Correxion Eye Cream is great if you are looking for a good moisturizing, but still light eye cream. DDF Advanced Eye Firming Concentrate seems to be the best overall that I have tried so far; good for dark circles, puffiness, and moisturizing.JESSEjames Lodi, NJ Pros: absorbs quickly, gentle, lightweight, smooth textureOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use

25-34Gender: FSkin Type: oilyIt works! - 11/9/2013 8:52:27 PM It's simply amazing to find a product that actually does what it claims to do. Two weeks ago when I started to use this serum, I was in the middle of a major break-out. I had blackheads all over my face. I use this product every evening, and now my face is almost free of acne! It does not dry out my skin, like other products usually do. Highly recommend!Jenn418 Surprise, AZ Pros: absorbs quickly, gentle, lightweight, smooth textureOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
25-34Gender: FSkin Type: combination- 11/2/2013 12:37:45 PM Great for oily/sensitive skin, never burns on days that I don't use retinol. I think the name is a little misleading, it doesn't hydrate. I love it because I can wear it under makeup to protect my skin from free radical damage and it won't make me look grasy through out the day.mrapsa San Diego, CAOverall Rating Price/Value Ease of Use
