We all hear the term “cosmeceutical” when discussing skin and skincare products, however when it comes to defining it, we suddenly get tongue tied! So what exactly is Cosmeceutical skincare?

The term “cosmeceutical” combines the words Cosmetic and Pharmaceutical to emphasize the mixture of beauty and science within cosmeceutical formulations.

Cosmeceutical skincare means the products contains active ingredients such as vitamins and antioxidants, designed to support and improve the skins function. Essentially a skincare product that contains biologically active ingredients. Clinical grade topical skincare that has an effect on the skin cell function. These ingredients and the delivery systems found in cosmeceuticals are supported by scientific research and are formulated to remain stable and Highley effective. Cosmeceuticals enhance product potency and benefits to the skin.

Are cosmeceuticals and cosmetics the same thing? The short answer is no. Where cosmetics refers to make up and skin products that contain no active ingredients or scientific formulations, cosmeceuticals are scientifically proven and contain active ingredients and antioxidants such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B3, Vitamin C, Peptides, hyaluronic Acid, Ceramides, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s -like Lactic Acid), Coenzyme Q10  to name a few, that work together to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers, improving the skin’s appearance.
