Roz Martin is The Founder and CEO of MedColl, a Leading Anti-Ageing Supplement Company

Roz Martin studied Business and Pharmacology in the UK and spent almost 10 years working in the UK’s pharmaceutical industry. She then relocated to the Middle East to specialise in Biotechnology Pharmaceuticals for Johnson & Johnson.

“I am originally from Dublin, and I remember from a very early age, like most little girls, mixing a concoction of my mothers face creams and lotions making them into my own brand and experimenting with them on my unfortunate baby sisters! Roz says. This was obviously the very start to creating her own health and beauty products.

It was while working in Biotechnology Pharmaceuticals that Roz had her first taste of how exciting this industry really was. She became extremely passionate about aesthetic and anti-aging medicine and began researching this area of medicine. It was via this research that Roz discovered some very effective and potent anti-compounds that had yet to be brought to the market, active collagen being one of them.

So having identified a niche in the anti-aging market, Roz decided in July 2010 to set up a company specialising in the most exciting compound; collagen. She set about working together with a dedicated laboratory and finally brought MedColl collagen capsules to the market.

These collagen capsules are the world’s first and only natural biologically-active nutricosmetic supplement that replaces the collagen your body needs, providing a range of therapeutic anti-aging benefits. This nutricosmetic product has been clinically proven to provide a whole range of health and beauty benefits. Taking this nutricosmetic supplement nightly will enhance the quality and appearance of your skin from the inside out.

The company’s website was set up in September 2010, allowing people to find out more information and to research collagen and buy online. In January 2011, the company launched its new online store, which now ships MedColl Collagen Capsules worldwide and even provides weekly health and beauty tips.

“Running this web based store has given me a better understanding of entrepreneurship and what it takes to be a successful retailer,” explains Roz.

In May 2011, Roz took the plunge and made the decision to leave her well paid, secure job with Johnson & Johnson to focus on running her own business.

“We have an excellent and innovative product. I believe that we have given people a valuable and natural alternative to more aggressive and invasive anti-aging agents and procedures available. I am so passionate about this product and what it can deliver, it stands alone in its class and I believe that an intrinsic approach to beauty through internal nutraceutical supplementation is a far more potent approach to anti-aging.”

The company understands the value of supplying quality products that deliver what they promise, but are also known for their scientific integrity, and their effectiveness for managing the skin’s aging process. Founder Roz Martin believes that when a powerful cocktail of high quality skin care and nutri-cosmetic supplementation are used in combination, they still remain the heart of the natural anti-aging process.

Roz emphasises the holistic approach to anti-aging and will endeavour to help you continue the quest for youthful and healthy skin. Roz is still currently living in Dubai, but plans to open stores in Singapore and the Far East.
