DDF
doctor knows best

The DDF range of skincare products was created by dermatologist Dr.Howard Sobel and his sister Elaine Linker, to deliver skincare with professional dermatologist results without the need of a prescription.

The extensive DDF collection contains a few excellent formulations. But always be aware that just because a brand comes with one doctors seal of approval, it may not be the best option.
  • DDF stands for Doctor's Dermatologic Formula.
  • BP 10% awarded Best Acne Product by Allure, Best of Beauty Editor's Choice Award for 2005.

beware of irritants
Many DDF products contain potentially irritating ingredients such as fragrances and alcohol. Always check the ingredients before purchasing, especially if you have sensitive skin.

upgrade from promises to results
Long before the beauty world discovered dermatologic skincare brands, there was DDF, the first prestige skincare company to address skincare by real concerns. Doctor's Dermatologic Formula (DDF) is legendary for its Cleanse, Protect, Treat approach to the science of beautiful skin. DDF founders Dr. Howard Sobel, M.D., P.C., F.A.A.C.S., and Elaine Linker, Nutritional Consultant, along with a team of biochemists, lead the company in formulating breakthrough skincare formulations based on trusted medical practices. Integrated with cellular and nutritional science, DDF Skincare delivers fast acting results, corrects existing damage and prevents future skin concerns.

HDS Cosmetic Lab, Inc. was founded in 1991 by world-renowned dermatologist, Dr. Howard Sobel, M.D., to provide his patients with over-the-counter products that deliver professional results without a prescription. In 1993, Elaine Linker joined DDF with the goal of establishing a brand that identifies the real-life needs of women and men seeking healthy, clear and vibrant skin.

Together they created the Cleanse, Protect, Treat protocol which considers the health of skin by focusing on concerns including Anti-Aging Preventative, Anti-Aging Restorative, Acne/Blemish, Sensitive/Allergic, Hyperpigmentation and Body/Sun.

DDF has achieved worldwide distribution and is available at the most exclusive department stores, boutiques and spas. True to its origins in the Medical/Spa market, the company offers a complete professional line of products for all spas. The company is also esteemed for its focus on consumer education.
