Kelly’s love for Naderma runs deep and personal. At the age of 35, Kelly was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer and underwent surgery and months of topical chemotherapy. According to Kelly’s physician, the cancer on her face was “something that should be found on an 80 year old man who spent years in the Pacific Ocean during WWII, not on a 35 year old.” Her battle ignited a passion for refining aging and repairing sun-damaged skin.
After years of searching, Kelly discovered the benefits of NAD+, including its ability to increase skin cell energy. Knowing NAD+ should be in everyone’s daily skincare routine, Kelly partnered with her friend, Dr. Tom Lavin to create the NADERMA Method. Balancing science and nature, NAD+ is revolutionizing skin health and appearance.
