Natural Ingredients Matter

Ask Dr. Z

Do you use natural ingredients?

Yes, our products contain a wide variety of natural ingredients

MD Complete uses natural ingredients broadly across our products. In fact, as much as 80% of our products are edible, not that we encourage consumption.

When we formulate a new product, we develop a profile of nutrient levels required to achieve the desired results for that product. Then, we carefully select a natural ingredient, like a particular variant of carrot seed extract, that delivers the nutrients we need at a clinically effective level.

MD Complete typically pays super-premium prices for the extracts used in our products. They are sourced from plants grown in nutrient-rich soil to ensure we get the highest concentrations of nutrients in our skincare.

You’ll see that we use a broad selection of fruit seed extracts that are rich in Vitamins, Omega 3-6-9s as well as potent carotenoids (the colorful pigments in fruits and vegetables that help to protect and nourish healthy skin). These extracts include:

  • Black Cumin
  • Cranberry
  • Tomato 
  • Red Raspberry
  • Black Raspberry
  • Chardonnay Grape
  • Red Grate
  • Carrot
  • Blackberry 
  • Pumpkin
  • Pomegranate

We also selectively use essential oils—lavender, chamomile, petitgrain and a variety of citrus. Again, we pay extra for higher grade, highly nutrient-rich oils that have been purified, if needed, to be suitable for safe use on skin.  

In addition, you may notice a wide variety of other extracts, each addressing a different issue or benefit in our products. Some of our favorites include:

  • Alaria Esculenta Extract (Brown Algae)
  • Artemisia Vulgaris Extract (Mugwort)
  • Borago Officinalis Seed Oil (Borage)
  • Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract (Green Tea)
  • Cardiospermum Halicacabum Flower/Leaf/Vine Extract (Balloon Plant)
  • Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (German Chamomile)
  • Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract (Quinoa)
  • Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract (Sea Moss)
  • Echium Plantagineum Seed Oil (Purple Viper-Bugloss)
  • Epilobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract (Fireweed)
  • Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract (Brown Seaweed)
  • Oryza Sativa Extract (Rice)
  • Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract (Rosemary)
  • Schizophyllan (Beta Glucan)
  • Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract (Paracress)
  • Stearyl Glycyrrhetinate (extract from licorice)

MD Complete also uses naturally derived humectants to provide a boost of moisturization, along with active ingredients to support skin rejuvenation:

  • Jojoba
  • Sunflower Seed extracts
  • Shea Butter
  • Colloidal Oatmeal and Aloe

We stand behind the quality and efficacy of our formulations, which we thoughtfully designed with the health and well-being of our spouses, children and friends in mind.
