The History of Phormula 3
In the 1950s, Dr. Erno Laszlo created his original Phormula 3. It was a bespoke repair and rescue treatment, tailored to his client’s needs and formulated in small batches. Phormula 3 helped lay the foundation for Dr. Laszlo’s legacy of bringing medical skin wellness to the masses.
Now, with nearly 100 years of innovation to our name, Erno Laszlo is pleased to launch Phormula 3-10, inspired by the science of Epigenetics.
The Emerging Science of Epigenetics
Epigenetics is the study of changes in gene expression and activity. Chemical compounds and proteins that attach to our DNA can direct them to express or silence—turning them on or off.
Epigenetics research examines how our behaviors and environment can cause these changes and affect the way our genes work. Without these proteins turned on, skin can experience signs of premature aging, including wrinkles and loss of firmness.
Phormula 3-10 taps into the science of Epigenetics to help keep skin looking its best.
Phormula 3-10 is Erno Laszlo’s most advanced restorative skin treatment. The collection features our proprietary skin wellness complex, Epigene-6, to support rejuvenation. Epigene-6 encapsulates extracts of Apple, Ginger, and Vitamin B3 to address the six key signs of aging: skin firmness, elasticity, hydration, tone, texture, and depth of lines.
Apple Extract: Rich in antioxidants, minerals, sugars, acids and vitamins A and E to promote healthy skin.
Ginger Extract: One of nature’s most transformative antioxidants to nourish skin and encourage vitality.
Vitamin B3: An essential vitamin to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and addresses discoloration.

As a pioneer in doctor-led skincare, Erno Laszlo is, and always has been, about innovation and efficacy. Dr. Laszlo was a man of many firsts—the first to formulate pH-balancing care, the first to offer “no-makeup makeup,” and the first to suggest custom rituals catered to the individual.
For nearly a century, our luxury line of skincare has delivered science-backed, results-driven formulas that nourish bright skin and celebrate bold personalities.
