Skin Creams & Cosmetics

Skin creams and cosmetics are big business with some of the world's largest companies involved in this market. Many spend a fortune advertising to make us use their latest, miracle, anti-ageing product or item of make-up which we just can't do without.

With more and more products available on the market, both on the High Street and in medical aesthetic clinics, it can become very confusing to understand both the ingredients and the claims made by the manufacturers.

Cosmeceuticals refer to products that fall somewhere between a cosmetic and a pharmaceutical drug; in that they contain biologically active ingredients, such as Vitamins A, C, and E, Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) etc.
