There is a Difference in the Skincare We Can Sell You Versus Over-the-Counter Options
When it comes to understanding the difference between pharmaceutical grade and over-the-counter skincare products – the key is the ingredients. Because the FDA regulates the production of pharmaceutical grade products, they are required to maintain a chemical purity standard. This means that it is necessary for these products to contain ingredients that are 99% pure. Medical grade products also must have clinical research studies to support efficacy, whereas OTC products do not. Over-the-counter products are not regulated by the FDA and can contain synthetic ingredients and potentially harmful additives. These products are not required to list their ingredients on the labels, making it difficult to truly know what you are using.
Most importantly, pharmaceutical grade products contain a higher concentration of potent and active ingredients that are crucial in promoting changes to the skin. Their ability to penetrate the top layer of the skin to target the dermis (or middle layer of the skin) and the basal layer (innermost layer of the skin), stimulates collagen and elastin to generate new skin cells. OTC products do not deeply penetrate these layers and solely involve the epidermis (or outermost layer of the skin). To effectively correct skin problems, treatment must be directed towards the deeper layers of the skin in order to produce favorable results.
