A formula 3600 years in the making.
The story of Stanley Jacobs MD Skin Care
Ancient Inspiration. Modern Thinking.
The Ancient Egyptians were early experts in the appearance of skin
Ten years of intensive research on the 3600 year old Egyptian scroll known as the Edwin Smith Papyrus revealed a new molecule in skin care. A formula for a serum used by the ancients to restore their skin to a more youthful state hinged on a single critical ingredient that took Dr. Jacobs 8 years to decipher: bitter almonds. Understanding bitter almonds is what led Dr. Jacobs and Mr. Jules Zecchino (former Chief R&D Chemist at Estee Lauder) to rediscover the Mandelic Acid molecule and reimagine its use in
a modern skin care formula.
Mandelic Acid molecule: one of the most important breakthroughs in skin care technology in over 30 years
Resurrected by Dr. Jacobs and Mr. Zecchino, the Mandelic Acid molecule is in the alpha-hydoxy family. Dr. Jacobs and Mr. Zecchino mixed Mandelic Acid with resveratrol (anti-oxidant) and glucosamine (improves cell turnover) to create modern formulas that after years of intensive scientific testing, have been proven to be extremely effective and long-lasting agents to combat the effects of age on skin.
A revolutionary measurement device from Germany called the Cutometer™ was used to scientifically measure the elasticity of the skin before, during and after 4 weeks of treatment with the Stanley Jacobs MD line.
The result was a 43% increase in skin elasticity when all 3 products were used–a synergy of the skin tightening properties of the formulas.
Just call him Indiana Jacobs.
A whirlwind expedition of discovery, driven by curiosity and passion, led Dr. Jacobs to uncover the long-guarded Egyptian secrets of youthful skin. After almost a decade of research end reformulation, Stanley Jacobs MD Skin Care was born.
Dr. Jacobs describes the originals of the serum, including his remarkable discovery of the secret ingredient of a recipe contained in the famous Edwin-Smith Papyrus.
