ABOUT DR. BARBARA STURM

Dr. Barbara Sturm, one of the most sought-after aesthetic doctors in the world, drew on two decades of anti-inflammatory research and practice to create her high performance, ingredient science-focused skin care regimens. The three pillars of Dr. Sturm’s skin care philosophy to achieve the #SturmGlow are: fundamental nutrition/hydration, healing the skin matrix rather than harming it with aggressive approaches, and reducing the visible signs of irritation.

Dr. Sturm launched a full skincare range in 2014. The complete Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics line is formulated for those who yearn for an uncomplicated yet highly effective skincare regime that provides hydration, nutrition, and regeneration glow. Innovative ingredient science is at the core of Dr. Sturm’s line – potent, keyingredients that have been widely clinically studied for their properties and efficacy. One such ingredient is the natural extract Purslane, a nutrition-packed anti–aging ingredient that calms the skin and helps reduces the visible signs of irritation. Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics is the amalgamation of scientifically driven aesthetic medicine and nature's reparative contributions.
