Benefits beyond the obvious: cosmeceuticals and their uses
Cosmeceuticals are the natural evolution of medicine and more superficial beauty products. For as long as people have understood how to battle symptoms of unwanted ailments, products have been used that cover up those unwanted issues. For example, dry skin and wrinkles have been a common issue as well as skin elasticity and discoloration. Now instead of just using cover ups, cosmetic companies are combining the latest in pharmaceutical technology to infuse their products with beneficial ingredients that have shown the ability to counteract the cause of these symptoms and react on a cellular level. This shift in focus has resulted in an increased emphasis on natural ingredients that have long term benefits for consumers.
