Meet: Hilarie Murad, President of the Murad Family Foundation

Meet: Hilarie Murad, President of the Murad Family Foundation

Murad is a family business and has been for 25 years. Dr. Murad’s daughter Hilarie started out in customer service back in 1996, and today she’s the President of the Murad Family Foundation. She oversees all aspects of the organization and ensures that all funding aligns with the Foundation’s mission to help young people lead healthier, happier and more connected lives.

How did you start working with your Dad, and what led you to this type of work?
I started at Murad after college (long ago). I took a break to go to fashion school thinking I wanted a career in the fashion industry. I quickly realized my passion was Murad Skincare so I returned after graduation and have been here ever since. I started my career here in customer service and cycled through virtually every department (except finance and ops) learning all the ins and outs of the business.

What inspired you to start the Murad Family Foundation?
Murad has always been generous, donating money and baskets of products for fundraisers, but it lacked a consistent message or focus. We had been discussing the idea of a family foundation for a few years but we just had not made it happen yet. When I returned to work after my son was born in 2011, it seemed like the time was right to get the foundation started; to consolidate and magnify our community impact.

What is the MFF’s mission statement?
The Murad Family Foundation promotes Inclusive Health in education and action to help young people to lead healthier, happier and more connected lives.

How can we get involved?
For those who don’t know, employees who spend one day volunteering every quarter receive one day off of work. If you are looking for an organization to volunteer with, we have a list of organizations that we have supported. Most are always looking for a helping hand. You can get more information at

How do you embrace the Murad Inclusive Health Vision; Look, Live and Feel Better Every Day?

How do you LOOK BETTER?
I feel very fortunate to have easy access to every Murad product because I use everything!

How do you LIVE BETTER?
My goal is to workout at least 4 times a week, a mixture of spinning, circuit training, weights, and kid chasing!

How do you FEEL BETTER?
I am positive by nature (definitely a trait I inherited from my dad). I also enjoy the time I spend with friends and family.

What is your favorite Dr. Murad Insight?
“Why have a bad day when you can have a good day.” It was the quote of the day in my daughter’s second grade classroom earlier this year.

What are your favorite Murad products?
Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum and Soothing Skin and Lip Care.

Any additional comments or stories you’d like to share about your life at Murad?
My life at Murad is great. Through the foundation I have met so many passionate people doing wonderful things for their communities. I feel so fortunate that I can be a small part of their success.

The work you’re doing to make the world a better place is amazing Hilarie. Your dedication and commitment to making a difference on a local AND global level is truly admirable. And we know your Dad must be really proud of you! Thanks for taking the time to share with us, and good luck on future Foundation endeavors.
