Beyond Beauty Pure Science
Skin care isn't just about beauty, its about understanding what causes your skin concerns on a deeper, chemical and biological level.
The purest and most potent materials have been sourced from all over the globe and produced in California. All formulas are clinically tested by people, not on animals, to ensure the best and most effective results.
DNA Repair Enzymes
DNA Repair Enzymes are your skin's natural protection against aging and sun damage, however significant decreases in DNA Repair Enzymes are seen as early as the age of 30. Research from the National Institute of Health (NIH) has shown that replenishing these DNA Repair Enzymes in your skin encourages the recognition and elimination of DNA damage. In DNA Renewal products, a trio of powerful enzymes are engineered from marine and botanical sources such as plankton and are delivered via liposomes to penetrate the skin deeply, thus helping to reverse DNA damage such as brown spots, wrinkles and discoloration. The study of DNA Repair Enzymes won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2015 (below) As seen in the Skin Cancer Foundation Journal, DNA Repair Enzymes also play a prominent role in repairing sun damage, thereby helping to work against skin cancer. Active DNA Repair Enzymes are present the following products: Intensive Renewal, Night Renewal, Eye Renewal, Sheer Defense Medium, Sheer Defense Light and our new Sun Defense SPF 50.
Growth factor has come to the beauty market via modern scientific research. A polypeptide (or molecular chain of amino acids) developed to speed up wound recovery, Growth Factors (GF) stimulates skin growth at the cellular level and may also increase collagen production. In 1986 a team of scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for their discovery of a protein vital to the health of human skin, cellular activators known as Growth Factors. Since then, science has been hard at work to develop this into a cleaner, purer system for skin care which has resulted in creating pure Growth Factor from the seeds of the barley plant. DNA Renewal's Regeneration Serum contains high levels of this Growth Factor to naturally activate cell regeneration, slowing the aging process and boosting skin health. This lightweight, moisturizing treatment soaks in quickly, diminishes dry spots and dark circles for a more youthful, radiant complexion. Active Growth Factor is present in DNA Renewal Regeneration Serum.

The Ultraceuticals Story
Dr Geoffrey Heber is a cosmetic physician who opened Australia’s Heber Davis Clinic, a specialised non-surgical cosmetic medicine practice, in 1988. It was there that he appreciated the need for high-performance take-home products so that patients could maintain and improve results they were achieving in the clinic.
In 1998 Dr Heber decided that skincare products as good or better than imported products could be developed and manufactured in Australia. He engaged leading local and US based cosmetic chemists to develop the first Ultraceuticals products.
5 Years of Development
Dr Heber and Ultraceuticals in-house research and formulation chemists have developed the doctors’ only Ultra MD skincare range over a 5 year period. The range is a result of in-house reviews of the scientific literature, in-house experimentation, clinical testing and continuous improvement processes. The Ultra MD skincare range is the pinnacle of Ultraceuticals product development efforts.
