Murad has launched a limited-edition Hydrate for Hope set featuring Hydro-Dynamic® Ultimate Moisture and Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes — to benefit City of Hope –  one of the nation’s leading research, treatment and education centers for cancer and other life-threatening diseases.


The Hydrate for Hope collection locks in optimal moisture levels for up to 8 hours and includes one 1.7 ounce jar of Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture, an all-purpose moisturizer that soothes and infuses skin with long-lasting hydration along with one 0.12 ounce jar of Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes, a specially formulated eye moisturizer that firms and awakens the eye area. The set includes a pink polka-dot makeup bag and retails for $49.50 (a $79 value). Murad will donate 10% from the sale of each set sold to retailers to City of Hope’s breast and women’s cancers research, treatment and education programs.

“We are thrilled to be continuing our relationship with City of Hope for the second year in a row. City of Hope’s mission to treat the whole person mirrors perfectly with my practice of Inclusive Health, ultimately creating a healthier, happier population,” said Howard Murad, M.D., FAAD, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA and founder of Murad, Inc. “Over the years at my dermatology practice, I have personally seen cancer patients with dry, dehydrated skin as a side effect of their treatments. It was with this in mind that I chose the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture duo for this set. And it is my hope that through this partnership Murad can help City of Hope come one step closer to cures for these horrible diseases.”

“One in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in her lifetime. City of Hope’s Women’s Cancers Program conducts innovative research to provide effective interventions for women with breast and gynecological cancers, and prevention of disease among women at risk,” said Joanne Mortimer, M.D., director of City of Hope’s Women’s Cancers Program. “We are grateful for the funding we have received through Murad’s Hydrate for Hope program. Murad’s generous support enables us to provide a continuum of care – from research to risk assessment, prevention, treatment, education and survivorship.”


The Hydrate for Hope set will be available at Murad.com, Sephora.com, Massage Envy, the Murad Inclusive Health Spa®, the Murad Inclusive Health Medical Group, and leading spas and salons beginning October 2012.
