Our Story

Founded in science. Made in bed.

PillowtalkDerm is a collection of fact-based, science-backed skincare solutions by Dr. Shereene Idriss. She's a leading board certified dermatologist on a mission to demystify the world of skincare and cosmetic procedures. Over years of posting myth busting videos to social media from her bed, she's become known as the #PillowtalkDerm, amassing a global community of 1M+ Skin Nerds.

Skin is complex. Skincare doesn't have to be.

At PillowtalkDerm, we're over the hype and fearmongering. We put formulation first and use all of our performance ingredients at the most effective levels for your skin. Dr. Idriss' commitment to science means that all PillowtalkDerm products are clinically tested, dermatologist tested, allergy tested, non-irritating, and fragrance-free.

Social Impact

PillowtalkDerm is more than just skincare. We want to empower women through accessible education. Dr. Idriss comes from a family that escaped war in Lebanon, and she’s seen firsthand how peer pressure, a lack of role models, and cultural biases can discourage girls from furthering their education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). But she and her sisters, who also became doctors, are proof of the importance of STEM education.

To help make a change, PillowtalkDerm invests $10,000 annually to sponsor young women from displaced populations who are interested in pursuing STEM education. We partner with STEM for Her, a Washington D.C.-based non-profit on a mission to help young women launch successful STEM careers.
