KAPLAN MD has 5 points of difference that set it apart from every skincare product in the world. They are: 1. KAPLAN MD contains the most exclusive, medical-grade, patented ingredients in concentrations that they were clinically tested. This is an important distinction because most products contain only tiny amounts of patented ingredients just so they can make marketing claims. Dr. Kaplan formulated each product with ingredients at the concentrations they were clinically tested to ensure the best possible results. These include our exclusive BioFusion-3S Plant Stem Cells, Matrixyl Synth’6, Juvinity and 22 Certified Organic Extracts. (Read more on these individual ingredients below.) 2. KAPLAN MD is the only skincare line in the world that was specifically formulated to prevent and treat skin aging caused not only by time, but aging caused by the environment (sun damage, pollution, etc.) and hormonal progression as well. 3. KAPLAN MD incorporates an advanced vehicle and time-release delivery system. Many products on the market today feature only 1 or 2 “star” ingredients. However, every single KAPLAN MD product contains over 30 star ingredients. Why don’t other brands put in more patented ingredients? It is simply too expensive to produce, too hard to market, and near impossible to formulate. Dr. Kaplan’s vision was to take all the best anti-aging ingredients in the world and combine them into the most concise line of products. In addition, each product contains a time-release delivery system. This allows the ingredients to penetrate into the skin and get to where it needs to be. The ingredients are slowly time-released so your skin is nourished and protected throughout the day. 4. BPA-Free (Bisphenol-A) Packaging. BPA is a byproduct in most consumer plastics, and has been banned in Europe and in plastic baby bottles here in the U.S. As the leader in skincare and skin science, Dr. Kaplan encased all KAPLAN MD treatment products in high quality Italian glass bottles to not only preserve the purity and integrity of the formulas, but to altogether avoid the leaching of BPAs from plastic into the products. All KAPLAN MD products that are contained in tubes or plastic containers are certified BPA free. 5. KAPLAN MD formulas are 100% paraben, sulfate and gluten free. KAPLAN MD is different not only for what is inside our formulas, but what we keep out.
