20 years ago, COSMEDIX began paving a new way in the skin care industry, revolutionizing the way products were formulated for optimal skin health. Driven by the desire to deliver gentle, effective and safe skin care solutions for all skin tones and concerns, COSMEDIX has grown into a globally recognized brand at the intersection of luxury and cosmeceutical. From Nobel prize-winning technology to powerful, plant-based formulas, this full product mix features facials, treatments, metabolic peels and at-home regimens that renew, resurface and refresh the look of skin.
Take a look into the first 20 years of this game-changing skin care brand that was built to find the balance between clean and effective skin care.
COSMEDIX was created by aestheticians for aestheticians as one of the first chirally-correct skin care brands deemed safe for all skin tones. At the time, there was a common misconception amongst the industry that clean, natural and organic products wouldn’t yield transformative results. Together, they sparked a positive shift in the industry that prioritized overall skin health through strict formulation standards and superior innovations.
Astral Health & Beauty takes ownership in COSMEDIX and completes a total acquisition of the brand by 2003. Astral Health & Beauty is a family of brands that make every day a little bit easier—and better—for women and men around the globe. With innovative and transformative products, these four brands, including COSMEDIX, PÜR, butter LONDON and Aloette, redefine the face of beauty.
In prompting industry change that redefines the way people view clean skin care, COSMEDIX develops the revolutionary AGP Complex, which enables high doses of Retinol delivery without inflammation by converting to trans-retinoic acid once absorbed into the skin.
COSMEDIX created the proprietary formula, LG-Retinex, which is a powerful, yet gentle, blend of retinol and retinal in an intelligent lip encapsulation. This game-changing formula helps neutralize retinol’s trademark irritation without compromising its performance.
As a brand that proudly serves the finest spas, skin care professionals, dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide, COSMEDIX created National Aesthetician Day™, October 15th, to formally celebrate skin care professionals. This month-long celebration allows us to shine light and give thanks to those who work tirelessly to help others achieve the complexion of their dreams.
Today, COSMEDIX offers an exquisite line of customized solutions that suit the need of the skin care professional seeking solutions to optimize their professional treatments and the retail consumer wanting a healthier approach to effective skin care. Specializing in green and clean initiatives, COSMEDIX’s cruelty-free line blacklists petro-derived ingredients and incorporates more than 100 different botanical ingredients for products that are good for you and the environment.
