GlyMed Plus was founded in 1991 by Christine Heathman, a Licensed Master Esthetician, Certified Medical Esthetician, and Licensed Massage Therapist. We are proud to serve the Professional Skin Care community with more than 100 products, divided into 5 sub-lines to make it easy to choose the right products for you and your clients.
The FDA divides skin-care products into two categories: cosmetic and pharmaceutical. Pharmaceutical-grade skin care products (products that can only be purchased through a skin-care professional) undergo much more rigorous testing before they can be released. This testing can last for as long as 10 years and cost millions of dollars. These products penetrate the layers of the skin to affect its structure and function. For this reason, pharmaceutical products are held to a much higher standard of purity.
GlyMed Plus is a pioneer and industry leader in the field of pharmaceutical skin care products. Our products follow a four-step system to fight the effects of aging, acne, sun damage, pigmentation, Rosacea, and other skin conditions. Our unique four-step system provides the versatility to allow you to be as gentle or aggressive as you'd like to be with your skin care program. The four steps are:
Cleanse: The first step of the GlyMed Plus system removes oil, dead skin cells, and environmental pollutants and debris, which can form dangerous free radicals in the skin.
Treat: The treatment phase of the GlyMed system provides your skin with active ingredients proven to treat your specific condition to restore, replenish, and revitalize your skin.
Balance: The active ingredients used in GlyMed's Balance products revive your skin's ability to repair and renew naturally giving you a healthy, natural glow.
Protect: The application of protecting ingredients allows your skin to grow and build healthy cells while being shielded from pollutants, debris, and the sun's harmful ultraviolet light rays.
Additionally, GlyMed Plus has developed a line of long-lasting, mineral makeups. Unlike traditional makeup, ours protect your skin from UV rays and provide antioxidant-rich nutrients to promote healthy skin. Our makeup has been designed to camouflage skin conditions without irritating or aggravating these conditions, as traditional makeup can.
