Medical & Cosmeceutical grade skincare products are often recommended by dermatologists and skincare professionals for their ability to produce positive results in the health of the skin.
Ingredients in medical grade skincare are backed by research & strong clinical evidence of effect. These ingredients are more potent and more stable, which increases the degree of efficacy. Also, the delivery systems are often more sophisticated, which increases absorption deeper into the skin.
Because of the quality of ingredients, time and effort put into the production of these products,the price point of medical and cosmeceutical grade skincare products are higher than your typical brands found at department or grocery stores.
These over the counter brands are regulated by the FDA. The FDA limits how much active ingredients can be included in each product. These products also contain unstable ingredients or trace amounts with additional additives, which renders the product ineffective. Also, because of FDA restrictions, these products cannot penetrate the deep layers of the skin so they just sit on the surface of the skin.
Medical and cosmeceutical grade products are no exception to the old adage, “You Get What You Pay For” If you’re truly seeking results, stop wasting your money on over the counter products and give yourself a much deserved regimen upgrade!
