The story of HYMED
In 1988, Hymed and its sister company Hylunia were two of the first companies to base an entire skin care product line around the proven properties of hyaluronic acid (HA), the most powerful humectant known. Hymed is a unique collection of clinical and anti-inflammatory skin care products for the face and body as well as for pre and post-laser/operative care. Hymed uses high concentrations of hyaluronic acid in all its products to help healing through hydration. We incorporate medical grade and plant-derived ingredients including plant stem cells, peptides, antioxidants, vitamins in the state-of-the-art penetration formulation to deliver powerful results.
Hymed is a clinical skin care line that is natural and green. Hymed contains USP (pharmaceutical grade – medical grade) ingredients and many powerful patented peptides and plant extracts to show visible results.
Hymed uses a high percentage of hyaluronic acid solution to help heal, repair, and hydrate the skin. We set ourselves apart with our liquid crystal formulation. Our unique formulation with hyaluronic acid solution helps our water-soluble ingredients penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, thus producing extraordinary results. Hymed’s cutting-edge liquid crystal formulation is the key to our clinical results.
Hymed focuses on minimizing inflammation. Hymed’s formulations are completely free of inflammatory and irritating ingredients. We have formulated skin care products with anti-inflammatory agents and antioxidants in high concentrations to penetrate and deliver clinical results. In addition, with the help of hyaluronic acid, our products can help repair wounded skin, such as post-operative and post-laser damage, burns, or radiated skin. Furthermore, the hydration from hyaluronic acid solution will help to minimize scabbing and healing complications.
Hyaluronic acid is the most effective topical humectant currently available today and for the past 30 years; more effective in its water retention properties than glycerin, sorbitol, and collagen. Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water, hyaluronic acid is a natural key component of the dermis. It effectively binds water to cells and is responsible for elasticity and resilience of the skin. In addition, its ability to associate with lipids in skin surface cell membranes greatly enhances its ability to deliver its retained water and enriches its property of reducing transepidermal water loss. Thus, the addition of hyaluronic acid is vital in a skin care line for its exceptional efficacy.

Co-founder: Dr. Brian Jegasothy
Hymed was co-founded 30 years ago by Brian Jegasothy, MD, former Chairman, Department of Dermatology at the University of Pittsburgh, with anti-inflammatory products, free of inflammatory ingredients, and endocrine disruptors. Hymed’s products contain no preservatives, no parabens, no fragrance, no lanolin, no alcohol, no dyes and no propylene glycol. The plant-derived wasabi, olive leaf, and citrus extracts, ethyl hexyl glycerin, caprylyl glycol, and capryl hydroxamic acid are combined to help in product preservation.
The products are formulated with healing in mind and are non-occlusive in nature. Hyaluronic acid is used to supply the oxygen and hydration needed for wound healing and absorption of water-soluble effective ingredients.
