The Difference Between Cosmetics And Cosmeceutical Skin Care?
Most people are familiar with cosmetics as they are easily available in department stores, supermarkets and online. They are often part of beauty ranges, with high price tags attached.
It is generally not known that cosmetics cannot access deeper skin layers, as they are not able to pass through the stratum corneum. Hence, they are unable to make any real change or long-term improvements for skin issues, such as acne and pigmentation.
Cosmeceuticals skin care products are non-prescription creams, serums and gels that are a step above what is offered at beauty counters with scientifically proven ‘active’ ingredients. They have been rigorously researched and tested to ensure skin results. At CosmeDocs, we provide a range of highly approved and recognised products, such as Obagi, NeoStrata, SkinCeuticals, Glo Therapeutics, Cosmetic Skin Solutions and Harley Street Formulations.
Although the cost of specialist cosmeceutical skin care products would be expected to be much higher than high street creams, they are usually just as affordable. It is highly advisable to consult a skincare specialist and invest sensibly in a good skincare regime, rather than spend hundreds on numerous creams that do not work.
How The Skin Care Treatment Is Performed?
At the beginning of the treatment, your skin is cleansed thoroughly with a cleanser. After that, a chemical skin peel solution is cautiously applied to your skin. It will remain on your skin for few minutes depending on the type of skin and peel, and then it is removed.
What Is A Cosmeceutical Product?
Cosmeceuticals are skincare products that have both cosmetic and therapeutic (medical or drug-like) properties and are designed to improve skin health and appearance. They are applied topically as creams or lotions, just like cosmetics, but they include active chemicals that affect skin cell function.
Are Cosmetics and Cosmeceuticals the same?
The term “cosmetics” refers to skincare and makeup products that do not include any active ingredients. Furthermore, cosmeceuticals are backed by science and contain active ingredients (think retinol, vitamin C, etc.).

How Do Cosmeceutical Ingredients Work On The Skin?
