Advances in Skin Care

SpecialChem / LaToyah Burke – Jan 4, 2007

Tapping into a lucrative niche, dermatologists are staking their claim in the cosmeceutical industry by formulating their own remedies to sell directly to consumers without the middleman. Traditionally, patients who suffered from severe or unmanageable skin conditions visited a dermatologist and had their orders filled at the pharmacy. Skin care professionals argue that prescription only formulas, developed with the patient's interest in mind, are the best treatments, while others are inclined to purchase skin care developed by a dermatologist and cosmetic company partnership. According to Wendy Lewis, cosmeceuticals consultant and author, "In the consumer's mind, cosmetic treatments have become demedicalized because they are offered in salons, spas, gyms and at the mall today." Dermatologists aren't the only ones cashing in on skin care. Skin therapists, estheticians and even biologists have formulated skin care products that include some of the newest skin care ingredients. Remergent is a skin product line formulated by AGI Dermatics a bio-pharmaceutical laboratory.
