Skincare Products

We are committed to providing evidence-based products that actually work. Our two main lines, Skinceuticals® and Medik8®, adhere to this principle. You may have heard of the term cosmeceutical  products.  These products require consultation prior to usage as they contain pharmaceutical ingredients not available over the counter.
Each of the ranges have products specifically designed for Acne Treatment, Pigmentation, Redness and anti-ageing concerns.



Research and innovation are at the core of the SkinCeuticals mission, and our dedication to science has established the brand as a leader in the advanced skincare arena.

The company’s founding was the direct result of a groundbreaking research which led to the development of many successful antioxidant based skincare formulations.

SkinCeuticals’ ethos is to pioneer next-generation skincare products that optimise the health and beauty of the skin—and help to change the face of skincare industry for years to come.


Medik8®is an award-winning, global skincare brand, sold only by skincare experts.

Medik8®products are developed and formulated by a team of biochemists and pharmacologists in an ISO audited, specially-built research facility located in London, UK.

Medik8®products are specifically formulated to target: skin-ageing, acne, redness, pigmentation and dryness.

The 100% professional-only range was launched in 2008. It represents a refreshing results-driven approach to skincare. The Medik8®name was taken from their highly-popular first product – a medical-grade anti-redness cream containing 8% vitamin K.

Elliot Isaacs (Pharmacologist, and Founder) wanted to bring the science of drug development into cosmetics, where delivering stable, non-irritating active ingredients to the skin is the rule – not the exception; where a new culture of using green technologies replaces outdated thinking; where skincare results are expected.

GlomineralsThe Ancient Egyptians were the first to document the use of earth materials for protection from the sun and to signify their social class, the use of heavy black around the eye area provided protection and also reflection from the suns strong rays.

The minerals they used were ores of lead known as galena, zinc, titanium dioxide and iron oxide, mica was also used as a decorative glittery effect. The ore Galena was the first used to protect the eyes from the desert sun, flies and evil spirits. As time passed the multiple benefits of mineral make up came to light, e.g. it was found that zinc not only protected the skin from the sun but also healed wounds and burns.

The 1970’s brought to the attention mineral make up, people began to realise the benefits of natural ingredients. From ancient times to middle-ages, lead and arsenic were used to lighten the complexion. Science has played a major role in cosmetics in the last decade, as cutting edge ingredients are offering anti-ageing miracles and flawless beauty.

Established in 2002 Glo Minerals® has maintained the integrity of the past and promise of the future, using only pure, pharmaceutical grade minerals and anti-oxidants we bring the evolution of beauty full circle. Just like our ancestors Glo Minerals® focuses on protection above all else, and beauty, with a higher purpose.
