The Skin Pharmacy products available online from Cosmetic Junkie are created by the World’s Leading Dermatologists and Doctors. The word Cosmeceutical refers to the combination of ‘cosmetics and pharmaceuticals’. Cosmeceuticals are cosmetic products with biologically active ingredients purporting to have medical or drug-like benefits.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Should you wish to purchase cosmeceuticals from our online cosmetics store we advise you to complete our online skincare consultation to ensure that you are purchasing the correct product for your skin. If you have already had a skincare assessment from a trained specialist then you are welcome to purchase your products from our site. We only ask this to guarantee that you know how to use the products safely and correctly.
Dermatological research proves that the bioactive ingredients used in cosmeceuticals have benefits beyond the traditional moisturiser. There is ‘dermal activity with actual and visible results’ from below the superficial layer of the epidermis. Cosmeceuticals will deliver their ingredients more than 20% into your skin and alter the structure and function of the skin. The behaviour of the skin is changed and is kick started into behaving as it does when you are younger. The natural skin rejuvenation system is regenerated, pigmentation removed, and many other concerns resolved.
The 'Cosmeceutical' label applies only to products applied topically, such as creams, lotions, and ointments. The professional cosmeceuticals used in the facials in our Spa are far stronger than what is available for retail and have to be administered by a trained professional. If you want serious results for your skin using active ingredients that penetrate deeper than regular Cosmetics then we recommend our Leading Cosmeceutical Brands which include ENVIRON, MURAD, N.V. PERRICONE, and NB CEUTICALS.
Cosmetic skin care products only penetrate your skin by up to 0.4% ,they look and feel lovely and indulgent, but do not penetrate the skin and give actual results. The results are superficial. Cosmetic Products serve to cleanse, pamper and beautify the skin on a superficial basis, ,they look and feel lovely, but do not penetrate the skin and give actual results.
