Our line was developed by a team of industry leaders: top Celebrity Dermatologist Karyn Grossman, M.D., blockbuster drug development chemist and former GlaxoSmithKline executive Brian Warrington, PhD, CChem, FRSC, and biochemist CBD expert, and CEO of Zelira Therapeutics Oludare Odumosu, PhD, MPH.  Zelira is a global biopharmaceutical company that brings deep pharmaceutical expertise to the development & commercialization of proprietary cannabinoid-based  prescription & OTC medicines. 

That’s right, a skincare expert, a world renowned medicinal chemist, and a CBD expert brought together for a common purpose: to develop an acne fighting regimen proven by science to rid your skin of acne! It’s pretty special! So special, RAF FIVE™ was developed with Zylorma™, a patent-pending clinically proven technology. This technology is infused with pharmaceutical grade CBD isolate to clear your skin and prevent those nasty pimples from coming back.

So why did we call it RAF FIVE™? We can’t wait to tell you! It’s an homage to Raphael Mechoulam, known as the Godfather of Cannabis research. It all started from a fateful bus ride in 1964, when Raphael Mechoulam brought five kilos of Lebanese hashish he received from the Israeli Police to his laboratory at the Weitzman Institute in Rehovot. With that material he was able to identify and isolate the psychoactive component in Cannabis, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), that had eluded scientists for decades. He ultimately identified the amazing benefits of CBD…The rest, shall we say, is history.
