If you want to go beyond pampering and really see a difference in the appearance of your skin then Cosmeceuticals are the way forward. Cosmeceuticals are skin treatments with biologically active ingredients that give visible results and provide added benefits that go far beyond other types of skincare products. The word “cosmeceutical” entered the general vocabulary in the 1990’s. Derived from a combination of the words “cosmetics” and “pharmaceuticals”, the word describes a non-prescription product for cosmetic use containing high grade ingredients which can produce dramatic results. These professional grade products have been scientifically researched and tested to ensure that they actually have an effect on the skin. A far step from the cleanse, tone and moisturise regimes of the past, they are about addressing skin concerns at a deeper level and protecting your skin from external forces, such as the sun and pollution which cause premature ageing. High Street cosmetics selling anti-ageing products containing antioxidants, peptides and retinol don’t contain high enough percentages of these ingredients to make any real difference to the skin. They are also often full of chemicals which irritate the skin.

Cosmeceutical products have the ability to penetrate the epidermis or top layer of skin to hit
the dermis or lower layer of skin. This is where collagen, elastin and pigmentation lay as well as where our new skin cells are produced.
Since the loss of collagen and elastin in the dermis is what ages us, we need to use products
that can penetrate to that level whereas general cosmetics only stay on the very top surface of the skin.
