I want you to change the way you think about your skin. It’s is an incredible, living, breathing organ, exquisitely influenced by what you eat, how much you sleep, the atmosphere around you, and what you put on top of it.

It’s constantly responding and adapting to all of these factors in a myriad of ways, and it has its own high tech communication systems to protect and repair itself.


On my treks in Patagonia, Mt. Kilimanjaro, and Denali, Alaska, I observed how different plants adapt to their environments. In Tanzania, there’s a huge aloe plant that opens its long, funnel-like leaves at night to capture dew, which helps it thrive in such an arid, high altitude climate.

Our skin does the same thing, constantly responding in miraculous, sophisticated ways to changes in light, temperature, or humidity. The ingredients in MMSkincare were carefully formulated to work in synergy with these amazing adaptive processes.


For years, scientists and dermatologists thought that the only way to get significant results from skincare was if the active ingredients could penetrate deep enough into the skin. The problem is that most topical products don’t absorb past the surface layer.

But what if ingredients applied on top of the skin could talk to the collagen through signals, like the internet does, without actually physically moving deep into the skin?

MMSkincare actually reacts to your body heat and circadian rhythms, as well as to light in the environment, and responds to your skin’s needs.

It communicates with your skin through internet-like signals in order to help calm, rejuvenate, and protect.


My skincare mantra for my patients has always been: Protect, enhance, and troubleshoot.

I created Marmur Metamorphosis to do all of those things, for people of any age and with any type of skin, in an effective, uncomplicated, and super personalized system, powered by your own dynamic, beautiful skin.
