Deciphering the dilemma of choosing between cosmetics and cosmeceuticals

Cosmeceuticals are the result of the marriage of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Cosmeceuticals are primarily researched and developed in laboratories and under the supervision of skin care experts.

“What is the difference between cosmetics and cosmeceuticals?” is the most frequently asked question by our potential customers, says Sushant Murarka, the founder of True Derma. Most people may be discovering the word “cosmeceuticals” for the first time. The most appropriate and valid answer to this question is whether the products penetrate the surface of the skin to influence cell change or not. Therefore, rather than wasting your money over and over again on trial and error, we suggest that you educate yourself on the differences between the products before making a purchase. If you know what different skin care products can do for you, then you will be able to make an informed decision.

Cosmetic products simply smooth or moisturize the skin and are mainly sold in department stores under the FMCG category. The epidermis cannot be penetrated by cosmetics to access the deeper layers of the skin. Although cosmetics can refresh your skin for a few hours, they do not create structural changes and do not produce long-term results. The major problem with most cosmetic products is that they only work at the surface level with little or no long term impact. Moreover, these cosmetics are loaded with harmful chemicals like preservatives, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, etc. which have harmful effects on your skin.

Cosmeceuticals are the result of the marriage of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Cosmeceuticals are primarily researched and developed in laboratories and under the supervision of skin care experts. Cosmeceuticals contain bioactive ingredients such as hydroxy acids, retinoids and vitamin C in high concentrations and they repair the skin internally. Therefore, it can affect the structure of the skin, making it ideal for treating conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and aging. Additionally, cosmeceuticals can only be obtained from pharmacies, skin clinics with or without a prescription from a licensed dermatologist.

One such company is True Derma, which produces only top-notch cosmeceuticals to ensure the highest quality results. Founder Sushant Murarka ensures that each product goes through a rigorous R&D process and quality checks. Most of True Derma’s products are either USFDA approved or European standard compliant. True Derma’s constant innovation has created several breakthrough products and over 100 dermatologists testify to it. True Derma is an American company with operations in the United States, Nepal, India, and the Philippines. True Derma products will soon be available on websites like Flipkart, Amazon, Meesho, etc. For now, customers can purchase products directly from their website.
