Dr. Goldfaden

“I have a commitment to enhance the health, nutrition, and beauty of the skin with enduring respect for body and mind. The sooner appropriate skincare and nourishment begin, the less likely you’ll notice the effects of aging” Goldfaden says on his site. “Early preventive measures, combined with a healthy lifestyle and sun avoidance, are keys to looking young.”

Founded in 2013 by Dr. Gary Goldfaden, a world-renowned dermatologist, and his sisters-in-law, Lisa and Lauren Goldfaden, Goldfaden MD is a family-run “clean-ical” brand that blends holistic solutions with Dr. Goldfaden’s half-century of research-driven innovation.

“I created the Goldfaden MD products to mimic the in-office treatments I have been performing for over 40 years,” Goldfaden also writes. “I​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​create​ ​skincare​ ​products​ ​that​ ​allow​ ​people​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​relatively​ ​simple​ ​skincare regimen​ ​using​ ​natural,​ ​effective​ ​ingredients.”

Dr. Goldfaden develops innovative and technologically advanced skincare solutions guided by the belief that proactivity equals prevention.


The Goldfaden Guarantee

As well as leaving the skin feeling firmer, looking smoother, and appearing more youthful with natural, clean, plant-derived ingredients, Goldfaden MD is eco-conscious, sensitive skin-friendly, non-toxic, and cruelty-free.

The skin is the body’s largest organ and research proves it’s capable of absorbing up to 60% of the ingredients in the products we apply. Synthetic ingredients can cause irritation and may lead to damaging effects over time.

Goldfaden’s products feature skin-nourishing, antioxidant-rich plant cell actives that are organic, non-irritating, and free of toxins and unnecessary additives. This means no artificial colors or fragrances, silicone, mineral oil, parabens, gluten, or alcohol, as well as using organic, natural, and vegetarian ingredients. Without harsh chemicals or ingredients that cause irritation, these formulas are well-tolerated, even by those with sensitive skin.

Each product is also dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic.

Goldfaden MD also aims to minimize its environmental impact from product development through packaging to be as sustainable as possible. All of the bottles are made from more than 70% recycled plastics, the boxes are constructed from 60% recycled paper, and both are 100% recyclable.

On top of this, Goldfaden MD partnered with One Tree Planted, so every Goldfaden MD purchase means one more tree gets planted. The brand also never tests on animals and is certified cruelty-free by PETA.

While Goldfaden MD are some of the best out there with the high quality, naturally derived, and key plant-based ingredients, you can use them in conjunction with other favorite skincare musts.


Must-Try Treatments

From all of Goldfaden MD’s amazing skincare solutions, let’s check out three of the brand’s best-sellers:



Dull complexions, beware! As a daily Ruby Crystal Microderm Exfoliator, DOCTOR’S SCRUB adds hydration and removes dead surface skin to reveal brighter, radiant, healthier-looking skin. By buffing away dead cells, dirt, and makeup, this exfoliator minimizes the appearance of lines and pores while improving the look of the skin’s color and tone.

This formula contains four key ingredients: hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, seaweed extract, and—of course—ruby crystals. Those perfectly round crystals offer effective exfoliating that leads to skin appearing brighter, clearer, and feeling younger-looking.

Hyaluronic acid makes the skin feel firmer and appear more hydrated, and the other moisturizing agent—jojoba oil— helps to reduce water loss, nourish the skin, and enhance its flexibility and suppleness. Seaweed extract enhances the complexion’s natural glow while making it feel firmer, appear smoother, and become more hydrated.

After exfoliating, follow with a serum to further improve your healthy glow. However, you should only exfoliate once or twice a week at the most.



Dry and aging skin is no match for this Overnight Enhancing Facial Treatment. A creamy moisturizer, WAKE UP CALL makes skin appear firmer and feel stronger, leaving it supple, smooth, and hydrated. While replenishing moisture, this treatment may also improve the appearance of photo-damaged skin and lines.

This formula also contains four key ingredients: alpha lipoic acid, avocado oil, retinol, and co-enzyme Q10.

A potent and versatile antioxidant, alpha lipoic acid helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles. Avocado oil, on the other hand, offers a robust dose of hydration and long-lasting soothing benefits.

Retinol is the purest, most active form of vitamin A, which aids in ultimate rejuvenation, improves the appearance of skin color, and helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines. The co-enzyme Q10 protects against free radicals and is filled with vitamins and nutrients to help the complexion overall and make it look fuller and more balanced.



Revive tired eyes with this Dark Circle Radiance Concentrate thanks to its ultra-lightweight and brightening cream formula. BRIGHT EYES helps to lighten dark circles, smoothing the eye area, and making it appear more youthful, healthy, and awake.

Darkness and puffiness can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor circulation, hereditary factors, or just plain exhaustion. However, this triple-action formula visibly brightens the undereye area to combat that darkness and puffiness, as well as fine lines.

BRIGHT EYES also uses four key ingredients: hyaluronic acid, soy peptides, apricot kernel oil, and arnica tincture. Hyaluronic acid, as we already know, makes the skin feel firmer and appear more hydrated as soy peptides decrease the appearance of puffiness while also helping skin feel firmer.

Apricot kernel oil is high in vitamins A and E, which helps to soften and moisturize as well as firm and smooth. The arnica tincture calms the skin and reduces the appearance of dark marks.
