Dr. Taylor is a retired dermatologist in Portland, Maine with a career-long interest in international and community medicine. While practicing, he had a large medical and surgical practice, which included children, adolescents, adults, and seniors, that spanned 40 years. While he no longer treats patients, he remains heavily involved in the American Academy of Dermatology and other related organizations. He is a graduate of Amherst College, University of Buffalo Medical School, and the Harvard School of Public Health, where he serves as a member of the Alumni Council. He has completed residencies in internal medicine and dermatology at the University of California at San Francisco. Following medical school, he went to Nigeria as a U.S. Peace Corps physician. He has taught epidemiology at Dartmouth and was chief of the department of community medicine at Maine Medical Center where he established medical clinics in underserved parts of the state of Maine. Michael is the founder and visionary of Konbit Sante, an initiative which supports the development of a sustainable health care system to meet the needs of the Cap-Haitien, Haiti community with maximum local direction and support.

To address the barriers of daily sunscreen use, Dr. Taylor worked with other dermatologists and research scientists to create a daily moisturizer with non-nano mineral sunscreens that looks and feels so great that people will use it every day. His focus for Ocean Elements™ Sheer Daily Moisture SPF 30 has been to create a product gentle enough for sensitive skin that can protect skin against daily sun exposure. The product will be available in Spring 2014.
