About the Artist

Dr Howard MuradHoward Murad, M.D., FAAD, has literally changed the face of skincare by devoting his life to making beautiful, healthy skin attainable for everyone. His scientifically proven formulas and Inclusive Health approach to overall skin and body wellness have helped millions to live better lives.

The Path of a Visionary

In 1989 he founded Murad, Inc. as a way to share his groundbreaking skincare formulas, which were among the first to achieve significant measurable anti-aging results without surgery. Dr. Murad continues his innovative research and holds 18 patents for advances in the science of skin health.
