Our team

ELEMENT EIGHT products were developed by a world renowned team of scientists and surgeons who have spent over a decade developing its proprietary oxygen delivery systems.


Our team of scientists, dermatologists, spine surgeons and trauma surgeons are all MD’s or PhD’s and some are both MD-PhD’s. Together we hold more than 120 medical patents and the proprietary products we’ve developed have been used in over fifty thousand spine and orthopedic procedures throughout the world. Our Element Eight team is now bringing these latest advances in oxygen infusing medicine to skincare.
