Physicians Formula founds skin health coalition

Physicians Formula is taking its commitment to creating trustworthy beauty products to the next level.

The City of Industry, Calif.-based company announced the formation of a new skin health coalition, composed of an allergist, dermatologist and plastic surgeon. The coalition will work with the brand to share advancements in cosmetic technologies, the latest news in ingredients and feedback from each of their practices, the company said.

“We were founded by a physician and want to stay true to our roots by continuing to innovate with doctor-curated, safe-for-sensitive-skin formulas. We are committed to keeping our promise to maintain our consumers' trust by delivering the healthiest and most efficacious beauty innovations — vetted, crafted, tested and validated by top physicians in skin health,” Alice Chen, vice president of marketing at Physicians Formula, said. “We are thrilled to introduce our Physicians Coalition, an altruistic trio of distinguished physicians who are passionate about public health. We will work closely with them on product development, R and D, and consumer and media relations.”

The coalition will include:

  • LanAnh Do, who is board-certified in allergy and immunology, internal medicine and pediatrics. Specializing in the treatment of asthma, allergies and immune disorders in children, Do graduated from UCLA and obtain a medical degree with honors from the UCLA David Geffen School. Her passion for the field of allergy stems from her own personal struggles with skin sensitivity, contact dermatitis and genetic melasma for years;

  • Rachael Cayce, a board-certified dermatologist specializing in the treatment of complex medical and cosmetic dermatological issues. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and was selected for the Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship for medical dermatology; and

  • Sarmela Sunder, a double board-certified head and neck surgeon and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Specializing in the neck and head, Sunder began her training at John Hopkins University and received dual degrees in public health and anthropology. She continued her medical education at Cornell Medical College and received a fellowship credited by the American Board of Facial and Reconstructive Surgery.

  • Physicians Formula, founded in 1937 by allergist Frank Crandall, currently works to develop healthy beauty products for consumers.
