He then moved to the UK, where he completed his PhD in Pharmaceutics at Liverpool John Moores University.
In a career that has spanned 18 years, Dr. Larhrib worked as a Senior Research fellow in Pharmaceutics in the Department of Pharmacy at Kings College London before moving to the School of Pharmacy and Chemistry at Liverpool John Moores University, where he worked as a Senior lecturer in Pharmaceutics. Dr. Larhrib's main teaching areas were in Pharmaceutical Dosage Form Design and drug delivery, Pharmaceutical Technology and current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).
Dr. Larhrib's main research areas include pulmonary drug delivery, transdermal drug delivery, oral drug delivery (tablet and capsule formulation), controlled release drug delivery systems, particle engineering for diverse pharmaceutical applications and advanced skincare.
"patented and published"
Most of Dr. Larhribs research work has been patented and published in international pharmaceutical journals, presented at international conferences and presented internally to some of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies.
"a foremost authority"
Dr Larhrib has proven himself as an inventive and brilliant researcher with a unique ability to solve complex problems quickly and effectively and is regarded as a foremost authority in pharmaceutical technology and pharmaceutical dosage form design. He is respected for his dedication and commitment to research and has been appreciated for the unparalleled quality of his research by all those he has worked with: pharmaceutical companies, researchers, professors, colleagues, to name just a few.
Cucumber contains all the key nutrients needed to restore the skins natural moisture balance, rebuild and repair connective tissue and protect the skin against the harmful effects of the environment.
It reduces the puffiness caused by local fluid and fat congestion by improving microcirculation around the eye area, which enables fluid to drain away and, via a lipolytic modulating effect, allows for a gradual decrease in fat deposits.
This improvement in microcirculation also combats hyperpigmentation, reducing dark circles and increasing the luminosity of the area around the eye.A powerful anti-inflammatory action further reduces swelling. Collagen and elastin synthesis repair damaged tissues and strengthen the vascular wall. 81% of volunteers perceived a reduction in the dark tone of dark circles around their eyes and instrumental evaluation recorded a 222% improvement in dark circles tone.
Chromabright is a skin-brightening active that operates by inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme which plays a crucial role in controlling the production of melanin. Furthermore, Chromabright has a photoprotective effect on human keratinocytes which constitute 95% of the cells found in the epidermis. Unlike other depigmenting agents,which can cause skin irritation when exposed to the sun, Chromabright actually helps to prevent the skin damage caused by UV radiation.
Eyeseryl is a synthetic tetrapeptide with anti-oedema, decongesting and draining properties. It reduces eye bags, dark circles around the eyes and improves skin elasticity. Eyeseryl was awarded Best New Technology by Cosmetics & Toiletries magazine and Health and Beauty America.
Liporeductyl is a pro-liposome composite of anti-cellulite extracts combined with the synergistic effect of a GHK tripeptide. The pro-liposomal formula ensures formation of liposomes once blended into the final preparation. These liposomes ensure effective penetration of the products actives to the deepest layers of the epidermis.
Matrixyl 3000 contains two matrikines, Pal-GHK and Pal- GQPR, which act in synergy to restore and maintain the skin's youthful appearance. These matrikines activate certain genes involved in the process of extracellular matrix renewal and cell proliferation, providing Matrixyl 3000 with its visible anti-wrinkle effect.
Pheohydrane is a complete moisturising active substance that works immediately, cumulatively and persistently to moisturise the epidermis, the outermost layers of the skin.
It immediately binds water in the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. Each time Pheohydrane is applied, there is a cumulative increase in the moisture levels of the epidermis. Even when the product is no longer applied, its persistent moisturising effect can be detected for up to seven days
Adipocytes are the cells that primarily compose adipose tissue, and they specialise in storing energy as fat. Scopariane reduces the number of mature adipocytes, and thus decreases the storage of fatty acids. Scopariane also encourages the synthesis of collagen, which is responsible for your skins firmness and elasticity.
Sulforawhite is a liposomal preparation of Swiss garden cress sprouts rich in sulforaphane, an antioxidant phytonutrient. Sulforawhite inhibits pigmentation by targeting two key processes in the production of melanin; it neutralizes reactive oxygen species (which can cause damage to cells) and inhibits a natural hormone that stimulates skin pigmentation.
Syn-Ake, a small peptide that mimics a polypeptide found in the venom of the Temple Viper, reduces wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions.
