Cosmeceuticals, More Than Cosmetics

Why are cosmeceuticals more than cosmetics?

A few years ago the world of cosmetics took a step forward with the birth of cosmeceuticals. Products that not only embellish the skin but also offer a prolonged treatment and contribute to improving skin health with a high concentration of active ingredients.

The skin is an organ capable of preventing the entry of harmful microorganisms, but also of absorbing those substances that are beneficial to it. Beyond cosmetics, many medications are applied topically on the skin to be treated.

The main difference between cosmetics and cosmeceuticals is in the amount and concentration of active ingredients in their composition and the ability to penetrate the different layers of the skin.

Cosmeceuticals, are more potent than traditional cosmetics to contain a larger amount of biologically active ingredients and at levels much higher concentration levels. 

Thanks to these ingredients, cosmeceuticals can act beyond the outer layer of the skin, the most superficial part of the epidermis, and are able to intervene in the structure and functioning of the skin. Thus, they are highly effective cosmetic product that provide visible results in both short term and long term.

Although cosmeceutical is often associated with treatments to improve the signs of ageing (spots, wrinkles, sagging, dehydration, etc.), they can also be used to improve acne, oily skin, hyperpigmentation, the texture of the skin or the size of the pores.
