About the Science


starts with our founder, Dr. Ronald L. Moy, a world renowned, research driven dermatologist who has served as president of numerous national dermatologic associations and currently serves as a Vice President of the Skin Cancer Foundation. With over 25 years of specializing in skin care, skin cancer and skin cancer research, Dr. Moy is passionate about skin health. As national skin cancer rates have risen over the years, it became clear to Dr. Moy that sunscreen alone is not enough to prevent skin cancer, and he began to research other ways to help his patients. After reading studies from the National Institute of Health (NIH) about the success of DNA Repair Enzymes in helping to repair damaged DNA, Dr. Moy began to formulate our DNARenewal products in order to help reduce skin cancer rates and improve overall skin health with effective and clean ingredients


beyond beauty, pure science sums up DNARenewal's philosophy. Skin care isn't just about beauty, its about understanding what causes your skin concerns on a deeper, chemical and biological level. 


are sourced from all over the globe for the purest and most potent material, and then produced in Southern California where we are based. Plus, our formulas are clinically tested by people, never on animals, to ensure the best and most effective results for your skin concerns. Skin care is a science that we know inside and out which is why we source the best, most effective ingredients derived from natural material for all of our products:   


DNA Repair Enzymes

DNA Repair Enzymes are your skin's natural protection against aging and sun damage, however significant decreases in DNA Repair Enzymes are seen as soon as the age of 30 years old. Research from the National Institute of Health (NIH) has shown that replenishing these DNA Repair Enzymes in your skin encourages the recognition and elimination of DNA damage. In our products, a trio of powerful enzymes are engineered from marine and botanical sources such as plankton and are delivered via liposomes to penetrate the skin deeply, thus helping to reverse DNA damage such as brown spots, wrinkles and discoloration. The study of DNA Repair Enzymes won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2015 (below)  As seen in the Skin Cancer Foundation Journal, DNA Repair Enzymes also play a prominent role in repairing sun damage, thereby helping to work against skin cancer. Active DNA Repair Enzymes are present in our products: Intensive Renewal, Night Renewal, Eye Renewal, Sheer Defense Medium, Sheer Defense Light and our new Sun Defense SPF 50


 Growth Factor 

Growth factor has come to the beauty market via modern scientific research. A polypeptide (or molecular chain of amino acids) developed to speed wound recovery, Growth Factors (GF) stimulates skin growth at the cellular level and may also increase collagen production. In 1986 a team of scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for their discovery of a protein vital to the health of human skin, cellular activators known as Growth Factors. Since then, science has been hard at work to develop this into a cleaner, purer system for skin care which as resulted in creating pure Growth Factor from the seeds of the barley plant. Our Regeneration Serum contains high levels of this Growth Factor to naturally activate cell regeneration, slowing the aging process and boosting skin health. This lightweight, moisturizing treatment soaks in quickly, diminishes dry spots and dark circles for a more youthful, radiant complexion. Active Growth Factor is present in our Regeneration Serum. 

Skin possesses natural mechanisms for renewal, repair and protection. Why not take advantage of that?
