Medical-Grade vs. Over-the-Counter Products
Medical-grade skin care products contain active ingredients that have been clinically proven to have a positive effect on skin. These products are sold only in a medical practice. It is a good idea to learn more about these skin care lines and why you may want to consider using them in favor of over-the-counter (OTC) products.
Cosmeceuticals differ from products you can buy at the drug store in that they contain ingredients that are capable of penetrating below the top layers of the skin, known as the stratum corneum. Products sold over the counter do not affect the skin in biological ways and are unable to penetrate its upper layers. Thus, they are labeled as “cosmetic.”
Medical-grade skin care lines often use the same ingredients as pharmaceutical ones you can only obtain with a prescription, only in lesser amounts or alternate derivatives. Common examples include retinol, antioxidants, or peptides. Cosmeceuticals contain these medical-grade ingredients. Some OTC brands may contain them as well, but the amount is minimal, and these brands are not permitted to affect structural change to the skin.
As with the amount of a particular ingredient, the formula used for developing a product plays a large role in its effectiveness. Many retail manufacturers use inexpensive methods of mass production to maintain cost. While a cosmeceutical line may come with a slightly higher price tag, it has been developed to a higher standard with quality ingredients to provide more effective results.
