Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Truth In Skincare started out as a search for just that: a search for truth in the skincare industry. We aim to elucidate facts from fiction, to discuss good vs bad ingredients, to reveal misrepresentation in the industry, and to promote consumer education We need more voices from scientists/physicians that blog solely on the truths behind skincare.

One doesn't realize just how dramatic the lies and deceptions are within the industry unless one can truly understand the how, what, and why of the skincare industry and science. The industry is ripe with companies relying on the manipulation of consumers (and spending millions of dollars on psychological marketing techniques). An educated consumer is the best antidote to companies that prey on these vulnerability.

I have an open mind in approaching skincare, respecting ancient wisdoms and the truths of modern science. Excessive chemicals and unproven ingredients are often a turn off for me. I do believe in using mostly natural ingredients and an organic approach to skincare, however, this must always be balanced with the understanding of modern science. I try to maintain a balanced approach as much as possible.


Our products have been developed with the understanding that the safest ingredients are those coming straight from nature. Initially developed for patients undergoing aesthetic medical treatments, we are now proud to share these products with everyone. Truth In Skincare successfully combines the two worlds of science and nature; physician formulated, but completely natural.

Our Philosophy incorporates these promises to you:

  • Natural, organic ingredients proven to be highly effective.
  • Clinically used on patients, never animal tested.
  • Never any colors, fragrances, parabens, or phthalates. 
  • Made in the U.S.A.
