SKIN1 by Dr. Gram – First Line to Address Inflammation, Enemy #1 to Healthy Skin
San Diego, CA (March 2009) - Newly launched SKIN1 by Dr. Gram is the first professional line to specifically address chronic inflammation, which research has linked to causing premature aging, skin damage and acne. Compounding pharmacist Dr. Bernard Gramlich utilizes synergies between natural, organic, and pharmaceutical-grade ingredients to prevent chronic inflammation and meet the needs of daily skin maintenance/protection. It is also the only professional line that is sulfate, paraben and fragrance free.
“Scientific research connected chronic cutaneous inflammation with premature aging and other diseases such as cancer over 50 years ago, so I was surprised to learn this is the first line to control all effects of inflammation,” said Dr. Gramlich. “Most skin care products have one or two active ingredients in high concentrations which can be extremely harsh – there are 11 active ingredients in every SKIN1 by Dr. Gram product to gently yet effectively treat skin.”
The three irritants that disrupt the skin barrier to cause inflammation are: environmental (smoking, allergens, UV rays and pollution); hormonal (stress and acne); and physical (harsh products, medical/cosmetic procedures, and preservatives). Acute inflammation is triggered to repair the damaged skin barrier by remodeling the injured skin. The body does not know when to stop “fixing” itself and continues producing pro-inflammatory molecules to ensure the problem is corrected. This is chronic inflammation which results in breakdown of collagen elastin, increase in oil production, and an increase in free radicals. SKIN1 by Dr. Gram is designed to prevent acute inflammation from becoming chronic.
This signature complex is included in all SKIN1 by Dr. Gram products. It utilizes the synergies between Niacinamide, glucosamine and two types of Vitamin E to fight inflammation and aging, moisturize, renew DNA, balance skin and slow skin discoloration.
Stem Cell Technology
Eye Rescue is the first skin care product to utilize Rutin, a powerful antioxidant that stabilizes Vitamin C, strengthens collagen elastin and chelates metals from the skin. By reproducing stem cells from Buckwheat, the most powerful source of this ingredient, Dr. Gram has been able to create a natural version that does not oxidize. Microsphere technology effectively delivers Rutin and Vitamin K, a vasal constrictor, to strengthen capillaries to dramatically reduce dark circles and puffiness from under the eye. It includes extra protection from Vitamin C and two forms of Vitamin E, which infuse the skin with unsurpassed antioxidant action and nourishment. The signature Nutra-VÎt ComplexTM works synergistically with botanical extracts to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, while aiding the skin’s natural recovery from environmental damage.

Daily Scrub contains the powerful action of bamboo, rice brand beads, and walnut shell to

Acne Regimen: Clarifying Cleanser, Clarifying Toner, Clarifying Mask

soothing relief of oat flour to clear and soothe acne prone skin. This nutrient-rich treatment

ComplexTM works synergistically with botanical extracts to balance skin hydration and
reduce hyperpigmentation, while aiding the skin’s natural recovery from free radical damage.
