Cosmeceuticals fall in a category between cosmetic, pharmaceuticals and medicine. Unlike cosmetics, they go beyond protecting, hydrating and nourishing the skin and, by virtue of their active ingredients, target specific skin imperfections and problems such as wrinkles, loss of firmness, sagging skin, etc.
Manufacturers define cosmeceuticals as product that have added therapeutic benefit.
The philosophy behind cosmeceuticals can be summed up in 3 words:
PREVENT – PROTECT – CORRECT.
