Founders of SkynergyMD
Why did you start this skincare line?
SkynergyMD was launched in Ghana in December 2017 with a momentous celebration and reception by Africans from the continent and in the diaspora. The first SkynergyMD retail store officially opened on February 16, 2018. Our horizon includes launching in other West African countries – Nigeria, Liberia, Cote D’Ivoire, to name a few and then across our continent and in the diaspora. There are so many Africans in the diaspora and so our plans are to bring SkynergyMD to them as well. There is such a demand for products that really work to correct, protect, and maintain healthy skin. When we started our development of SkynergyMD products, we knew that we would never compromise on making products that contain potent natural ingredients found in Africa formulated to synergistically deliver healthy skin. Simply put, we formulated SkynergyMD with natural ingredients from Africa for the men and women of Africa. It only makes sense to bring SkynergyMD to our continent versus having our continent come to the products.
What does your skincare line include?
The SkynergyMD line consists of multiple cleansers, primers, treatment serums and moisturizers. We are excited about our pigmentation line and anti-ageing line, to be introduced in summer 2018. Our cleansers are extremely hydrating with the ability to gently exfoliate, lift and remove dead skin cells, dirt, and debris, ultimately brightening and renewing the skin. They are filled with humectants, which maintain the skin’s natural oils without being harsh or abrasive. For example, our FraicheMattifying cleanser for men contains Mangosteen, a healing fruit with antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, alpha-hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid to exfoliate and unclog the pores and soothing hibiscus flower, also possessing antioxidant benefits. Our primers seek to restore the skin to a normal pH balance, clarify, correct, and remove the burden of environmental toxins, which impede normal skin function. We recommend using our primer after cleansing. Our treatment serums are loaded with potent plant and fruit extracts in concentrations effective in reaching deeper skin structures to visibly reverse the signs of ageing while simultaneously moisturizing, rejuvenating and restoring the skin to optimal health. We are excited about our serum delivery systems as they allow rapid delivery of key ingredients to critical skin areas before they are consumed by enzymes that promote ageing in the skin.
What is your overall message with your brand and why?
The SkynergyMD line focuses on skin health, not just the skin’s appearance. Our message for men and women is to invest in the care and protection of your skin while doing no harm from undesirable chemicals. Focus on your overall health and healthy skin will follow.
What product could you not live without and why?
I love our Optima Overnight Youth Recovery Concentrate. It is rich in Griffonia and Argireline, which literally go to work to stop the depletion of collagen and elastin, both of which are needed for a youthful appearance.
