Murad is supporting Active Minds in their bi-annual Stress Less Week program.

Murad is partnering with Active Minds,  a nonprofit supporting mental health awareness and education for young adults. 

In 2003, Dr. Murad coined the term 'cultural stress', the day-to-day stress of modern living as a major factor contributing to the chronic exhaustion and declining health of people of all ages, which has a significant impact on skin health. 

Active Minds directly reaches around two million people annually through awareness campaigns, events, advocacy, outreach and more to give young adults the tools needed to help manage their mental health and raise awareness of the importance of reducing stress.  Murad is supporting Active Minds in their bi-annual Stress Less Week program.  Stress Less Week supplies education, tips and resources designed to help young adults better understand and mitigate stress while helping to shape a positive mental health culture among their community. It also spreads the message that speaking up about one's struggles is a sign of strength and promoting self-care as a priority. 

This initiative will come to life across college campuses nationwide from April 24-28 and October 23-27.

"Dr. Murad has always believed that stress isn't just something you feel. His understanding of how stress impacts skin health inspired the formulation of our stress-addressing skincare products; Eczema Control, Intense Recovery Cream, Revitalixir Recovery Serum, City Skin Age Defense SPF 50 and more,” says Paul Schiraldi, CEO of Murad, in a news release.

“We believe in a holistic approach to skin health supported by our four founding pillars, as it's important to care for your physical, mental and emotional well-being. This partnership with Active Minds brings our purpose of combating the global health epidemic of stress together." 

Alison Malmon, Founder and Executive Director of Active Minds adds, "our partnership with Murad will help ensure that even more young adults have access to these resources specifically designed to help them stress less and take care of their mental well-being."

Consumers will be able to learn more about the partnership on and will have an option for in-cart donation upon checkout. Fully 100% of donations through December 31, 2023 will go directly to Active Minds.
