We tirelessly explore different combinations and selections of raw, organic ingredients in an attempt to create something unique, natural & effective.
With a little TLC, love and quality that we put into creating and producing each of our products we strongly believe that your skin can overcome any minor ailments like redness, inflammation, dryness, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
Some examples of our signature ingredients include super fruit antioxidants like Organic Camu Camu & Amla, moisture-plus peptides like Polyglutamic acid, and highly effective brightening agents like Alpha Arbutin.
What is the difference between a good product, from an exceptional one? The answer lies in how well it creates an environment suitable for skin to thrive in. Some ingredients like propylene glycol, PEGs and silicones can initially feel amazing, but with daily use, they are detrimental for your skin. The damage they cause is displayed as premature aging, sun damage, inflammation, redness and clogged pores.
Is skin able to heal after years of struggling with skin ailments such as acne and melasma? We strongly believe that skin can easily heal and repair itself given that it has a proper environment that promotes both healing, nourishment and includes key ingredients that will target specific skin concerns. Our extensive line of products contains key ingredients that target several skin ailments from acne, oily skin, dry skin, inflammation, redness, photoaging, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and so much more.

How We Started
ASDM Beverly Hills was founded by Rafael Marquez in 2010. It all started with one cream that would change the way that uneven skin tone was resolved. Initially, the widespread ingredient used for reducing the appearance of melasma was hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is a great lightening agent, however research has shown that it can cause cancer with regular use.
Rafael’s solution to this problem was to formulate a hydrating & moisture rich cream that contained safe and effective lightening agents both organic and synthetic, combined with a blend of natural fruit exfoliants and non irritating Vitamin C. This cream is our our Arbutin Skin Lightening Complex. It has been a best selling product since it was introduced to the market in 2010.
This cream was only the starting point as Rafael Marquez created different concentrations and variations of this formula to target uneven skin tone both on the face and on the body. Since not everyone has the same skin type or level of severity, Rafael Marquez created serums and lotions with varying concentration of lightening agents to help all individuals struggling with hyperpigmentation.
After months of success with his skin brightening products, Rafael Marquez decided to expand his collection to include facial masks, chemical peels, anti aging serums, creams, and so much more. This extensive project was met with much success.
Unfortunately in 2017, Rafael passed away from a year long battle with GIST Cancer. He is succeeded by his wife, Alejandra Marquez who has always been a strong collaborator and inspirational figure to Rafael Marquez. (ASDM stands for Alexandre Saint D'Marquis, a fancy french version of Alejandra's name.) Since his passing, Alejandra Marquez has gone on to oversea the creation of many new products including our organic and hand extracted collection.
By creating effective yet affordable products that will transform your skin and renew your confidence, Alejandra Marquez hopes to inspire a message of love for yourself and for one another. Love is the key to happiness and unity.
