Urban Skin Rx®, an unparalleled line of clinical skincare products, was developed by Rachel Roff, a highly successful Licensed Aesthetician. In 2006 Rachel opened her own medical spa, in Charlotte, NC, and it quickly became the leading medical spa and laser center for treating melanin-rich skin. Through her experience working on clients, Rachel learned which ingredients and formulations most effectively improved common conditions in skin of color, including hyperpigmentation and melasma. Recognizing the wide unmet need for products to address the concerns of diverse skin tones, Rachel founded Urban Skin Rx® in 2010. Urban Skin Rx® and Pro Strength™ collections include effective, targeted solutions with scientifically researched ingredients to help reduce the appearance of dark marks and uneven skin tone. The brand also offers additional products that smooth texture, reduce the visible signs of aging and fight acne and dry skin. Urban Skin Rx® is sold online at urbanskinrx.com and at Target, Ulta, Walmart, Amazon, CVS, QVC.com, HSN.com and Dermstore.com. In 2020, the brand launched its first international distribution in Nigeria.
Meet Our Founder
At the beginning of her career, Rachel focused on providing safe and effective treatments for skin of color at her medical spa in Charlotte, NC because, at the time, no other medical spas were. Through that experience, she became an expert in hyperpigmentation. Today, we’re proud to bring Aesthetician-level expertise to Urban Skin Rx® product formulas to make achieving even tone, clear skin accessible and affordable.
"When I started my Aesthetician career 20 years ago, I solely focused on providing skin and laser treatments for patients with skin of color at my medspa in Charlotte, NC because no other medical spas were. Individuals with melanin-rich skin were being turned away, misdiagnosed, or even worse-scarred and burnt. Quickly recognizing the need to fill the aesthetics diversity gap beyond Charlotte, I developed Urban Skin Rx® to deliver clinical formulas for hyperpigmentation to consumers across the globe. I'm beyond proud of the work that we've done to elevate and expand the category of clinical skincare for melanin-rich skin tones and solutions for hyperpigmentation."
