Richard Parker


Since 1992, Richard has worked alongside leading dermatologists and plastic surgeons to craft skincare formulations that are considered the platinum standard in protecting and restoring the natural luminosity of
human skin.

A global authority on solar and environmental skin ageing, Richard’s pioneering research into the relationships
between skin genetics and epigenetic environmental influences led to his development of the RATIONALE Essential Six—a topical skin ritual built around the six facets of skin health.

Based on Richard’s unique and profound understanding of skin anatomy and physiology, the Essential Six Collections comprise formulations designed to enhance Resilience, Vitality and Brilliance by day, and rejuvenate skin’s Integrity, Clarity and Renewal processes each night.

Today, Richard is dedicated to directing RATIONALE’s talented Team of research scientists and innovation channels at RATIONALE HQ in Melbourne, Australia. A classically trained pianist and cellist, Richard is also passionately immersed in the world of art and culture, and was an accomplished performer and musical
educator prior his entry into the world of
dermatological research.
