Our Story

About us

Skincare that gives you safe, healthy, yet effective results.

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 propylene glycol. The plant-derived wasabi, olive leaf, citrus extracts, ethyl hexyl glycerin, caprylyl glycol, and capryl hydroxamic acid are combined to help 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.

The HYMED story

In 1988, Dermatology Research Scientist from the University of Pittsburgh created Hymed Skincare based on the findings of the research conducted by his high-profile research team over several years. They discovered that Inflammation is the root cause of premature skin aging and many chronic diseases. They found that the aging process of human skin can be slowed down by preventing and minimizing skin inflammation and that is indeed the focus of Hymed skincare – to keep you looking young even as you physically age.

Hymed Skincare is the first physician focused skin care line built around the proven properties of hyaluronic acid (HA), the most powerful humectant known. Hymed is a unique collection of plant-powered, science-driven, and anti-inflammatory skin care products that uses high concentrations of hyaluronic acid in all its products to help healing through hydration. Hymed incorporates the highest quality, professional grade, non-inflammatory ingredients including plant stem cells, peptides, antioxidants, and vitamins in the state-of-the-art penetration formulation to deliver powerful results.

Previously sold only through physicians’ offices, Hymed is now available for purchase directly through this website.


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.

minimizes inflammation

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 the hyaluronic acid solution will help to minimize scabbing and healing complications.

Liquid crystal technology

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 the 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 skincare line for its exceptional efficacy.
