Why Pharmaceutical Grade Skin Care Products?

As skin care professionals it is important to use and offer clients professional skin care products that will provide visible results, and truly support healthy skin. Our products have been formulated to help individuals achieve healthy skin. Skin care products can be divided into two categories: 

  • Pharmaceutical Grade 
  • Cosmeceutical Grade

Cosmeceutical Grade Products contains products that can be bought over-the-counter at department stores or drug stores. These products need to be safe for anyone to be able to buy, take home and use on a regular basis without having training or education before use and will not risk damaging the skin. Cosmeceutical grade products are only regulated by the FDA to use ingredients that are 70% pure which means these products are typically full of synthetic ingredients and fillers making their effectiveness minimal, and their capability to provide results much lower. Cosmeceutical grade skin care products cost less to purchase, but do not last as long as pharmaceutical grade products due to the necessity to use more product.

Pharmaceutical Grade Products are regulated by the FDA to contain ingredients that are 99% pure. These ingredients are going to have a powerful effect on the skin. Because of the potency of the ingredients used in pharmaceutical grade products they must be purchased from a skin care professional who can teach clients how to use them properly so they do not risk damaging their skin.  Pharmaceutical grade products cost more to purchase, but last longer than cosmeceutical grade products due to the higher concentration of active ingredients resulting in less product usage.
