MEDICAL GRADE VERSUS OVER THE COUNTER SKINCARE

MEDICAL GRADE VERSUS OVER THE COUNTER SKINCARE

YES, SIS. MEDICAL GRADE COSTS MORE. BUT YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET!

Let's talk about the difference between medical grade (or pharmaceutical grade) and OTC so you understand. Well, to begin:

OTC skincare products do not have oversight by the FDA, which means that thorough product and ingredient testing is NOT required.

OTC products do not have to be tested, often contain many filler ingredients to keep costs low, is comprised of lower strengths/percentages of active ingredients, and are formulated for the general population so that everyone (no matter what your skin type) can use them. This is done purposely, as OTC brands cannot risk being held liable for selling products that penetrate deep into the epidermis (top layer of skin) and potentially cause reactions from being made of strong and effective concentrations.

Medical grade products, however, are manufactured using extensive research and only use pure ingredients, holding them to a much higher standard. Medical grade products are also created by licensed professionals, are tailored to specific skin concerns, and contains much higher percentages of active and clean ingredients (medical grade products are designed to create CHANGE in the skin). In order to do this, medical grade products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients not allowed in OTC skincare products. What this also means with medical grade products is that a little goes a much longer way than when you use OTC skincare.

Medical grade skincare is notorious for being at a higher price point, and this is because you are truly paying for quality, testing, and pure, active ingredients that will bring great results. It's worth the investment if you are serious about improving your skin! I have seen life-changing results from medical grade skincare, and this is why I am so passionate about it. It is also why I have created my own line, because I stand behind pharmaceutical grade ingredients!
