The science. Why does evidence-based practice and science-driven products matter?

...................

You wouldn’t take a blood pressure medication without the science behind the drug, which ensures safety and efficacy. Our skin is our largest organ and should be treated as so with careful selection of safe, science-driven products with proven results.

For example, let’s talk about topical retinoids. It is hard to navigate the skin care world without hearing about retinoids, or, retinol containing products. Topical retinoids were first used to treat acne, but it was noticed that after beginning treatment, patients were coming back, claiming the product also improved their wrinkles. What we have now learned is that pro-retinol, a form of vitamin A, stimulates fibroblasts in the skin to produce more collagen and fibrillin, the proteins that make up the extracellular matrix that holds up our skin it its youthful, plump form.

This was soon followed by the discovery that the addition of acids to a skin care regimen can remove dull, older skin cells on the surface of the skin. Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E have also been shown to reduce wrinkles and pigmentation as well as protecting against environmental damage.

As research went on in the field of cosmeceuticals, new active ingredients are also being found and developed. New antioxidants and new retinol compounds prevent the glycosylation of proteins and lipids within the skin.

As you can imagine, this is a marketing gold mine for pharmaceutical and cosmetic skin care brands. This is where we come in. There are hundreds of products boasting the use of antioxidants, retinols, and lipid complexes. It takes time to research the science behind the ingredient lists, not to mention check authenticity of product. We have the experience, education, and time-spent reviewing efficacy of product, clinical results, and safety of each of the products and brands that we carry.

Instead of getting lost in the constant ads, the overwhelming availability of skin care products online and in store, we have hand selected each of our products, with the intention to curate the best, most effective products from various luxury skin care lines. We provide access to products with retinols, antioxidants, vitamin C and E serums, etc. without the confusion about which product of the 500+ retinol products online to choose from. We have whittled down the products needed in a complete skin care regimen, choosing only to stock the authentic, science-driven, and most effective skin care products from well-known brands featured in dermatology clinics.

We are delighted to curate regimens to your specific skin type and concerns.
