There are 3 categories of products on the market for skin that are classified according to the FDA:
Cosmetics – which can be brought online and on the high street
Medical products – which can only be prescribed by a doctor
Cosmeceuticals – which are stronger than cosmetics but not enough to be classed as medical. They are only available to purchase through a trained skincare professional via a face to face consultation in a salon or clinic.
For a product to fit into this category it has to physically change the skin rather than just improve it’s appearance. Physically changing it could include controlling sebaceous gland activity, stimulating collagen production, reduction of melanin production and more..
The reason I work with Nimue out of all the cosmeceutical brands out there is because the products will penetrate the skin on their own without the need for electrical machines.
This makes it easier to see results quickly just by using the products at home.
