Dr. Barbara Sturm’s unique, science-based products have achieved cult status with skincare devotees worldwide, and her philosophy of healing the skin has challenged both aggressive approaches and the conventional wisdom.
Every Dr. Barbara Sturm product is filled with ideas. Dr. Sturm’s skin care regimens are simple, but the products are not. This is why Dr. Sturm has begun creating Dr. Barbara Sturm Boutique & Spas to deliver the famous #SturmGlow facials but also to educate the public about her rigorous ingredient science-approach and the anti-inflammatory lifestyle that she espouses. Dr. Sturm’s commitment is to be educating the consumer about healthy skin and wellness.
Dr. Sturm says: “We are exiting the era of marketing-based skincare and entering the era of performance-based skincare. Skincare needs to embrace the individuality and diverse skincare needs of every consumer.”
Dr. Barbara Sturm is a German aesthetics doctor, widely renowned for her anti-inflammatory philosophy and her non-surgical anti-aging skin treatments. Dr. Sturm began her medical career in orthopedics as part of the team that developed cutting-edge treatments for inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis. Termed the “Kobe Procedure” after patient and NBA basketball star Kobe Bryant, the treatment utilizes the patient’s own blood cells to produce proteins that reduce inflammation and stimulate the healing process.
Dr. Sturm then translated science from her clinical research and orthopedic practice into the field of aesthetics and opened
her own medical clinic in Düsseldorf. As she continued to innovate and revolutionize the field, she became one of the most sought-after beauty doctors in the world.
In 2002, Dr. Sturm developed her famous “MC1,” a bespoke plasma-based cream only available to Dr. Sturm’s patients. The potent cream harnesses the power of the body’s own proteins in a skin-healing formula to address the visible signs of inflammation.
Building on her platform of product performance and innovation, Dr. Sturm launched a full skincare range in 2014. The complete Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics line is formulated for those who yearn for an uncomplicated yet highly effective skincare regime that provides hydration, nutrition, regeneration glow. Innovative ingredient science is at the core of Dr. Sturm’s line – potent, key-ingredients that have been widely clinically studied for their properties and efficacy. One such ingredient is the natural extract Purslane, a nutrition-packed anti–aging ingredient that calms the skin and helps reduces the visible signs of irritation.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics is the amalgamation of scientifically-driven aesthetic medicine and nature’s reparative contributions.
