The importance of proper skin care cannot be denied. Women and men alike turn to skin care both for preventative and restorative qualities. At Revalla, many of our patients inquire about our lines of professional skin care—are they better? Are they worth spending the extra money? To both of these, we say yes. Why, you might ask. Simply put, professional skin care products are more effective and deliver better results.
Not satisfied with such a simple answer? Here, we provide a list of reasons why over the counter and retail products do not hold up in comparison to professional and medical grade skin care:
Made in large batches: Produced in large batches to serve the masses, more preservatives and fillers are added to the product to increase shelf life.
à Made in small batches, specialty skin care ensures freshness and optimal results.
Lower percentage of active ingredients: Sold publicly, retail products consist of simpler, more basic formulas.
à Sold by licensed retailers only, professional grade skin care is approved to have higher concentrations of active ingredients.
One size fits all: To meet the generic term “for all skin types” products are often formulated to meet a wide array of skin ailments. Hyped by clever marketing, these products cannot deliver skin-specific result.
à Looking for unique results? It is imperative you use products formulated for your unique skin needs as well as unique skin makeup.
Other differing factors: Often, synthetic dyes, colors, and fragrances are added to improve the products sensory experience. Unnecessary chemicals like these can act as skin irritants. Most products you find on the drug store shelf are lower in quality and laden with inexpensive, pore clogging oils. One thing to be on the lookout for: products containing mineral oil and petroleum—these products are forbidden by most skin care professionals.
