Cosmecuticals are biologically active ingredients used in good skincare products that have been scientifically proven to change the structure of your skin at a cellular level.
They are the ingredients that work to repair, rejuvenate, hydrate, protect and nourish our cells.
You won’t find parabens, fragrance, artificial colours, SLS and nasty alcohols in cosmeceutical skincare. These are high quality, highly effective, science-based skincare products that can change the way your skin works. If you’re serious about skin, then cosmeceutical-grade skincare are the products you want to be dealing with.
The ingredients, complexes and delivery systems found in cosmeceuticals are often supported by scientific research, and are formulated to remain stable and highly effective for topical use. Contrary to popular belief, cosmeceuticals do often contain botanical and plant-derived extracts, alongside synthetically modified ingredients.
