Dr. Ellen Marmur, a dermatologic surgeon for 15 years opened her own practice in 2012. At that point she began an unexpected journey into entrepreneurship. Dr. Marmur had a vision to re-imagine the skin care industry. In her travels around the world, she observed how plants would adapt to their environments. Between the changing of light, temperature, and humidity these factors all affected the way organisms survive. The idea is that our skin acts in the same manner. We absorb everything, good or bad, and this affects the health our skin tremendously.
This encouraged Dr. Marmur to create a skin care treatment under the MMSkincare name. Ultimately, this led Dr. Marmur down a path to enhance her skin care products utilizing light therapy technology.
