Our Formulation Philosophy

The name AlumierMD is based on the word “illuminate”, which means “to make clear or bright.” Illuminate also means “to enlighten or share knowledge.”

With over 100 years of combined skin care experience, our experts create science-backed products in luxurious formulations that work to reveal more radiant and luminous skin.

Through advanced proprietary chemistry, AlumierMD has optimized the bioavailability of each molecule in our ingredients. As a result, our prescription-strength formulations deliver exceptional results.

At AlumierMD, we don’t just “dust” our products with expensive ingredients to make marketing claims. We research the optimal ingredients and concentrations to create prescription-strength formulations for a wide range of skin concerns.


Formulation approach

Healthy and youthful skin is radiant; it reflects light like a diamond. There isn’t one perfect formula or magic ingredient for younger, smoother and brighter-looking skin because there are multiple skin profiles. That's why our team of experts has designed multifaceted, results-oriented skin care products that target the underlying physiology related to each skin type, condition and individual.

P.R.I.S.M. is an acronym for our formulation approach.


Skin Profile

Individuals have unique skin profiles, which means . Skin types include dry, normal, combination and oily one product or skin care regimen does not suit all . Skin conditions include rosacea, sensitive, acne and hyperpigmentation.

Other variables also have an impact on your skin, for example, age, ethnicity and climate. Your AlumierMD skin care professional will help determine your skin care profile based on all these factors, and provide the optimal treatment regimen for you – because you are like nobody else!


Our Development Process

Our product development process is thoughtful and science-based. It begins with identifying skin profiles and the correct molecules; this helps determine the concentration of ingredients needed for optimal skin care results.

From formulating and product testing, to creating travel-size products and innovative bottles that keep ingredients fresh, we design with you in mind.

To find an AlumierMD Skincare Professional


Combining Home Care Products and Professional Treatments

Homecare products and professional treatments work synergistically to improve the health and beauty of skin. Homecare products prepare your skin for professional treatments and then maintain the results post treatment. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.

By combining your customized home care regimen with potent professional treatments, the result is radiant skin with improvements in tone, texture and the visible signs of aging.


Paraben Free

We are committed to formulating safe products without the use of chemical preservatives like parabens, BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene). Parabens mimic estrogen and concerns exist as to how this may affect certain cancers in women and hormone levels in young girls. BHA and BHT can induce allergic reactions and BHA is a possible human carcinogen and hormone disruptor.


AlumierMD Chemical Peels

Most beneficial ingredients for the skin tend to degrade or denature when placed in the low pH of chemical peel formulas. With that scientific information in mind, AlumierMD peels use only the pure acids; antioxidants, anti-aging and brightening booster ingredients are applied post-peel in our Brightening Accelerator so all components remain effective.

Peels remove the outer dead layers of the stratum corneum, so the booster ingredients are better absorbed when applied post-peel. Our multilayer process can be customized by your skin care professional according to your skin profile and concerns.


Treatment Expectations

Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight, and treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take up to eight weeks.

Use home care products consistently and as directed to achieve optimal results. Just as you take time to exercise, you need to take time for your “daily skin care workout regimen” in the morning and evening.
