INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

We know that conscious, educated consumers want natural, paraben-free products and they also want highly technical, efficacious results. They know the effects of dermatologist loved ingredients like vitamin C, glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acids and peptides, and want them in the purest form possible.

Knowing this, we went into the chemistry lab armed with a list of 100 ingredients we couldn’t use. 175 formulas, we launched a highly technical skincare brand which fuses dermatologist loved, potent ingredients and vitamin-packed, effective and researched naturals. The result is M-61.

There are over 100 ingredients that are not allowed in the M-61 line. All products contain anti-inflammatory ingredients to balance the aggressive treatments. Many products are gluten free and/or vegan.
