About the Brand


Medik8's ultimate mission is to help you achieve Beautiful Skin for Life.

As a cosmeceutical skincare brand, Medik8 uses only the best active ingredients in our formulations.

Within the scope of a cosmetic formulatory, the brand subjects these actives to a rigorous testing process before putting them anywhere near anyone’s skin.




About the Founder

Elliot Isaacs studied physiology at the University of Leeds alongside pharmacology and biochemistry. After backpacking the globe, Elliot was inspired to create the world-renowned Medik8 cosmeceutical brand. He then built it up from a tiny lab in the back of his Dad’s pharmacy.

A product of his time, a scientist having spent 5 years backpacking around the world, he also shared the natural movement's values of fair trade, sustainability and natural ingredients.

But his idea, unique at the time, was to combine this ethical backdrop with his experience in biochemistry to create results-driven products with proven science. Aimed at mature skin to maintain a more youthful complexion, his mission is to demystify anti-aging skincare with his philosophy of ‘vitamin C plus sunscreen by day, and vitamin A by night’. There is, he believes, no reason to choose between results and experience.

Medik8's CSA Philosophy

Vitamin C

Well formulated, stabilized vitamin C provides all-important antioxidant protection as well as stimulating collagen production and blocking the development of pigment for smoother and brighter skin.

Apply vitamin C in the morning for an all-day urban shield against everyday environmental factors which can cause skin aging.


It is estimated that 80% of skin aging is caused by the sun. Sadly, skin damage caused by the sun doesn’t only happen when it’s sunny. If it is light out, it means the sun’s rays can still reach you. Even on a cloudy day, you will still get approximately 50% of UV reaching your skin. Wearing high-strength sun protection every day is fundamental for a youthful complexion. With its importance in mind, Medik8 have a range of beautifully light but powerful sunscreens that protect and nourish the skin.

Vitamin A, aka: Retinol

As the Experts in Vitamin A (aka retinol), Medik8 has developed a wide range of night creams and serums to rejuvenate skin while you sleep. Vitamin A is quite simply the most important ingredient in anti-ageing skincare. It has a wealth of skin benefits including speeding up cellular renewal and reducing sebum production. It is crucial that Vitamin A is stabilised and has some form of controlled-release to ensure maximum potency with minimal irritation.
