Harvard-trained pathologist and dermatologist Dr. Mark Gray deeply understands the science of skin. As the founding Director of the largest provider of skin medical and surgical services in New Zealand, he’s spent the past 20 years listening to his patients struggle with the skincare world’s mixed messages: effective ingredients that are harmful; natural ingredients that don’t deliver results.
Armed with the belief that skincare is evolutionary, he explored breaking scientific advancements and societal trends towards globalism, environmentalism and rising ethical standards to find the ideal balance between health and efficacy.
"Skincare science needs to be on the very edge of social change and evolution in order to succeed."
