Cheers to 20 Years!

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. 

1999
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. 

2001-2003
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. 

2003
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. 

2013
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. 

2016
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. 

Get to know Serum 16!

Retinol has been a buzzword in the skin care industry for decades, reigning supreme in the age-defying category with transformative results. The ingredient, which is widely found in products across the market, can help target visible signs of aging. For skin care lovers, it’s a heavily sought-after ingredient, whereas many others getting introduced to the ingredient may feel intimidated by potential risks. COSMEDIX’s Serum 16Rapid Renewal Serum is specially designed to fight the visible signs of aging and target stubborn acne without the unwanted irritation or downtime associated with Retinol. Formulated with a mix of highly concentrated ingredients, Serum 16 contains sodium hyaluronate and squalane, which instantly boost hydration and help prevent moisture loss, as well as vitamin E, which helps defend skin against age-accelerating free radicals. This innovative formula helps reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone, smooth wrinkles and boost moisture without causing redness, dryness or irritation. 

Too good to be true? No way! Based on a six-week clinical study:

  • 90% reported a brighter, more even skin tone 
  • 88% reported noticeably firmer skin 
  • 75% reported less apparent wrinkles

It’s no surprise that this magic serum is packed with skin-loving ingredients, but one patent-pending ingredient is to secret behind its game-changing results. COSMEDIX’s proprietary technology, LG-Retinex, is a one-of-a-kind encapsulation that combines both retinol and retinal with unrivaled potency, penetration and stability.

We asked the girls at Renu about their favorite COSMEDIX products and treatments. Get the full DL down below!
What is your favorite Cosmedix treatment or product to use yourself or recommend to clients & why:
MARSHA PEPIN: I looove Simply Brilliant. I use it myself to treat my hyperpigmentation and keep the results that I achieve with it. I literally recommend it to everyone. It works! I can tell when I haven’t been regular with my routine. My spots creep back to say hello.  Can’t live without it.
LAUREN BAILEY: My favorite Cosmedix products are a duo of Simply Brilliant and Affirm, when I put it on its like my skin just woke up and instantly brightens and tightens/ Plumps. They are amazing to cocktail with any moisturizer to amplify it and create better spread-ability. I love complimenting these products in the treatment room with a Sculpted Mask Treatment, every time I do this my clients get that WOW factor afterwards revealing the glow that they work so hard on at home!
ENDI HULSEY: I am in love with the Timeless Peel! Because I have dry, sensitive skin and battle rosacea I have been hesitant to try peels. The timeless peel won me over. It was not uncomfortable to apply and produced great results. My skin looks and feels amazing and I am planning a series since my first treatment went so well.
VANAE HANSEN: My favorite Cosmedix product to recommend to clients is Simply Brilliant! I think everyone should be on a tyrosinase inhibitor to prevent hyperpigmentation; and the results driven ingredients along with a reasonable price point make it the perfect product to add almost everyone’s regimen.
HILLARY MANFREDO: Purity Solution keeps me from rubbing and pulling the delicate skin around my eyes and face when I cleanse because it MELTS and emulsifies the mile of makeup I have on. Thankful for that!
 
Favorite part of being a medical esthetician?
LAUREN BAILEY: Being a Medical Aesthetician is my LIFE! I love the Science aspect to it, I’m constantly looking at new ways to up my game. We work with so many innovative brands and devices that education and avenues are endless. I am so proud of the work I get to do everyday for everyone, putting my brain to use creating individualized treatment plans for all my clients to get the results they desire is extremely rewarding!
Do you have any interesting/fun tips or unconventional uses for Cosmedix products?
LAUREN BAILEY: There are so many fun ways to use Cosmedix products, Rx clean works wonders as a tingling mask and deep cleanse when lathered on the skin, add a little Glow mask to it for a physical exfoliation is always a WINNER! Always using remaining Eye Doctor around the lips to fight fine lines, never waste a sparkle of that product!! Purity Balance is also a fix all for me. Someones shoes have a smell to them spray a little in there and I swear it goes away, during a long day of travel- I’ll spritz some on the nape of my neck and even underarms and I’m totally refreshed, it gets even the tightest spots on your face clean- I will take a cotton round and put a couple Q-tips on top spray with Purity Balance and I have the ultimate ear purification, cotton for behind to get all makeup off and the q-tips inside (not too deep) to clean them out. For a toner it works magic!
ENDI HULSEY: Add Purity Detox Scrub to Purity Clean for a tingly, minty refreshing exfoliation at home!
HILLARY MANFREDO: Our climate in Idaho is SO dry so most of our staff and clientele are dehydrated. I add a little bit of Restore mask to my PM moisturizer for a boost in the winter. I put Rescue+ on my hands (concentrating on my cuticles) before bed.
