Perhaps the most influential person in beauty, Dr. Barbara Sturm, renowned aesthetics doctor and founder of the cult-favorite skincare line: Dr. Barbara Sturm, has completely transformed the industry through one simple philosophy: healing the skin through science-backed formulas and embracing the individuality and diverse skincare needs of every consumer. A firm believer in anti-inflammatory remedies and non-surgical anti-aging skin treatments, Dr. Sturm first began formulating her first products at her own medical clinic in Düsseldorf.
