Dr. Sturm believes that facial skincare regimes should be easy to use but yield maximum results. Her regime focuses on skin rejuvenation, protection of skin matrix and barrier function, anti-aging & cell regeneration.

Dr. Sturm’s Product Pillars
Anti – Inflammation
Defined as preventing or reducing inflammation. Skincare formulas that are nurturing to skin rather than disruptive to the skin’s natural function create good skin health. By including ingredients that the skin understands including bio-identical ingredients, the skin responds favorably and is able to utilize these ingredients for repair and protection.
Purslane combined with skullcap are two European plants that have been used for centuries for their health benefits and are the key active ingredients in all products as they support and activate the telomerase at the molecular level of skin cells. This process dramatically improves the skin’s function and appearance.
Supplementing the skin with quick absorbing and potent hydration is essential to give the skin the ability to function properly and to protect itself from environmental aggressors. Skin that has superior hydration is balanced, not too dry or oily, and is free of skin concerns such as breakouts, enlarged pores, and irritations. The compounds are the subject of dozens of clinical trials worldwide.
What Is Telomerase Activation?
Telomerase activity is strong and frequent in young skin, but slows down with age leading to the appearance of wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, loosening of the skin matrix, reduction of barrier functions, age spots, etc.
With each cell division, the protective end caps of our chromosome shorten. As we age, our telomeres naturally become shorter. When they become too short, the DNA cannot be correctly copied, which leads to cell change/ mutation/death, which affects the healthy functions of cells and tissues and accelerates aging which can lead to diseases.
Purslane and Skullcap increase Telomerase activity, leading to the rejuvenation of the skin at a cellular level. Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics is the first skincare series to contain Purslane and Skullcap to activate Telomerase.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Enzyme Cleanser: The Best of Both Worlds!
A two-in-one cleansing foam and exfoliate, particularly ideal for oily and combination skin. The fine-grained powder transforms into a soft foam once water is added, providing a deep, yet gentle cleanse and exfoliation. A collection of enzymes works together to loosen the conjunctions between dead skin cells, helping to peel away dry and rough skin, remove makeup, and reduce excess sebum from pores. The skin will appear revitalized and smooth instantly after cleansing.
