Cosmeceuticals provide a combination of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals to achieve the best possible results in topical skin solutions. Despite their topical application, cosmeceuticals boast potent ingredients that can biologically alter the structure of the skin to improve skin tone, texture and appearance. Active ingredients, including botanicals and nutrients, are incorporated into the formulas for the purpose of creating healthier skin. Cosmeceuticals may be used alone, or in combination with cosmetic procedures to enhance results.
Some of the common ingredients found in cosmeceutical formulas today include:
- Antioxidants – fight free radicals in the environment that lead to skin damage and accelerate the aging process
- Peptides – proteins naturally created by the body that stimulate collagen production for firmer, smoother skin
- Growth Factors – one of the newer ingredients found in cosmeceuticals, these substances work by stimulating new cell development
