In our ongoing “Who’s who” list of all those who helped Dr Litner and I create JolieMD, we wanted to turn today to perhaps the most challenging step in the creation of JolieMD- those who helped us in the real work of putting all of the ingredients we wanted together in a formulation that feels great, achieves real results, and is non- irritating.
So in formulation, Dr Litner and I would have to thank first and foremost, John Garruto, Tina Fleck, and the entire team of chemists at Free Radical Technology who helped us put Metamorphosis together. In formulating Softening Serum and Enlightening Lotion, their team had the unenviable position of having to achieve the previously unimaginable.
In 2 steps we wanted to blend all of the ingredients we had researched and needed to stop acne, treat hyperpigmentation, and fight wrinkles, and the product had to:
1 Be gentle enough for every complexion
2 Stay effective for the life of the product (wanted active ingredients to remain active and not oxidize), and
3. Be free of all the potentially harmful elements (think parabens, sulfates, and phthalates that are ubiquitous in the skin care industry)
The team at Free Radical was amazing in not only achieving our requests but also in making sure that the products felt better smooth and luxurious and did not cause any bleaching or staining of pillows or clothes as so many other products do.
Simply put, the Free Radical Technology team is amazing and Dr Litner and I cannot thank them enough for all their help.
