MDacne mission is to provide the most effective, safe, and "clean" medical-grade acne treatment products. The safety of cosmetic skincare has progressed rapidly over the last few years, responding to customer demand for cleaners, eco-friendly, cruelty-free products.
Unfortunately, the topical prescription medications did not evolve at the same pace as modern skincare. As most prescription medicines were formulated years ago, they contain ingredients that are not considered clean anymore. Typical examples are parabens and phthalates that are included in many prescription anti-acne medications.
What is the MDacne formulation philosophy?
Not all "clean" skincare is effective or biocompatible, and most prescription topical medications are not clean. MDacne goal is to provide the most effective medical-grade ingredients in the "cleanest," safest formulations. Based on science and years of dermatological experience, we use the highest percentages of active medical-grade ingredients combined with plant-based extracts at ideal pH levels.
MDacne formulation philosophy rests on eight pillars: medical-grade, personalized, effective, safe, clean, vegan, eco friendlly and cruelty-free.
How are the MDacne products formulated and tested?
All MDacne treatment products are formulated in the USA by a team of highly experienced dermatologists and chemists. MDacne's products are vegan and not tested on animals. The MDacne treatment products are produced in the FDA monitored facilities in Florida and filled in recyclable tubes in Texas. The products are ultimately packaged in biodegradable, eco-friendly boxes in Pennsylvania.
