Once upon a time there were two choices: early “cosmeceuticals” resurfaced the skin with harsh, irritating ingredients or “natural skincare” which was far gentler but failed to produce noticeable results. Unsatisfied with compromising skin comfort and health for short-term results, a group of forward-thinking skin care experts came together with one goal in mind: to create a skin care line capable of delivering visible results without excessive irritation. The solution sounded simple, but they soon discovered he chemistry needed was far more complex than most formulators could handle.
Unwilling to give up, COSMEDIX quickly became the most forward thinking professional skin care brand in the world. COSMEDIX combines the very best of science and nature including plant-based actives and pure essential oils to deliver powerful results without excessive irritation. However, what stays out of COSMEDIX formulas is just as important as what goes in. In addition to being the industry's pioneer in botanical-based skincare, COSMEDIX uses no parabens, PEGs, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Hydroquinone. Additionally, COSMEDIX ingredients and formulas are cruelty-free.
In a 2012 market analysis of over 50 leading professional and prestige skincare brands, COSMEDIX consistently proved itself ahead of the curve in terms of providing safe, effective, natural skin care.
Of the brands analyzed:
- – 62% continued to use parabens, despite potential health concerns.
- – 79% used polyethylene glycol, a common ingredient in antifreeze, to help stabilize their formulas.
- – 40% included irritating Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.
- – 40% relied on artificial dyes to make their products look more appealing.
- – More than 70% listed artificial fragrance among their ingredients.
The science may be complex, but the message is the same: better results come from better ingredients, and the best ingredients come from Mother Nature. Together with cutting-edge technology and a holistic approach to skin health, botanical ingredients help deliver on COSMEDIX's promise of rapid results with reduced irritation.
