Since 1989, donell® has been committed to bringing the best of science to skin care. The clinical research of John F. Prudden MD, MED. Sc.D (the Father of Cartilage Therapy) on wound healing was the inspiration behind the donell® brand. The research led to the discovery of an ingredient, MCC, that accelerated wound healing and reduced inflammation of surrounding tissue. Donell® made headlines when we launched and became the first company to develop and distribute topical non-steroidal products using MCC to address wound healing. Healing that may be needed due to surgery, burns, laser treatments, micro-dermabrasion, glycolic peels, the use of Retin-A and other topical treatments. Even radiation treatments.

In 2004, donell® expanded its product offering to include professional grade skin care products scientifically designed to address virtually all of your skin care needs. Every skin can benefit from the advanced science and state-of-the art formulas from donell®. There’s a bit of healing in everything we do. Donell® products help condition and improve the appearance of skin following allergies, prolonged stress, and exposure to the elements. Developed specifically for the health care market donell® formulas reduce the appearance of scars, promote skin recovery, and help soften the adverse affects of sun, acne, and aging.

Over the years, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, physicians, and professionals have been a primary audience for donell® products. Physicians nation wide recommend donell® to their patients.


Another inspiration came in 2009 with the Nobel Prize in Medicine award for the discovery of telomerase and its role in maintaining our youth. Donell® came first to market with Telomera Anti-Aging Moisturizer. This revolutionary formula works on a cellular level using Astragalus Root which activates telomerase. This breakthrough formula also includes Matrixyl 3000 and other ingredients to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
