Cosmetics may contain active ingredients but only at a low concentration. Cosmetic products are widely available from chemists (without needing to ask over the counter) and supermarkets.
A cosmeceutical product has higher concentrations of active ingredients. They improve skin quality and work in synergy with in-clinic treatments for prolonged and boosted results. Generally, a true cosmeceutical is prescribed by a medical practitioner who specialises in anti-ageing skincare and treatments.
Factors such as sun, inflammation, disease, ageing and diet can all affect the quality of our skin. Research suggests that people perceive your age according to the quality of your skin rather than the lines and wrinkles.
To improve your skin texture, tone and luminosity, we recommend using premium cosmeceutical brands that deliver the best results. These include: Skinceuticals, Jan Marini, Aestheticare, Heliocare, Obagi and Zo Obagi that contain higher concentrations of active ingredients, making them results-focused in helping improve the appearance of the skin, yet are less potent than pharmaceutical drugs.
