What is Medical Grade Skin Care
Medical Grade skin care products differ from the products you can purchase from your local drugs store, Walmart or over the counter in department stores. Cosmeceuticals contain ingredients that penetrate below the top layer of skin, unlike store products which are not able to affect the skin in a biological way. Cosmeceuticals contain ingredients you can often find in prescription grade skin-care expect in milder doses. Examples of these ingredients are retinol, peptides and antioxidants.
The key with effective skincare isn’t just to do with the ingredients, it also has to do with the formula and how the products are produced. In order to maintain a lower price point many drug store brands cut corners on their formula, and production. While medical grade skin care comes with a higher price tag, its often due to the fact that the product is developed to a higher standard with quality ingredients to provide proven, effective results.
