Cosmetics and pharmaceuticals together make cosmeceuticals. A cosmeceutical has the active potential ingredient to bring about visible changes to the skin, and these changes are backed by clinical indication. Cosmeceutical products are marketed as cosmetics, though they comprise biologically active ingredients that provide medicinal or drug-like properties. For example, anti-wrinkle skin creams includes ingredients such as alpha lipoic acid and dimethylaminoethanol and creams containing cellular replacement serum that claim to have anti-aging properties. The cosmetic industry coined the term, though the US FDA does not recognize the term cosmeceuticals. A cosmetic product will effectively maintain skin quality by providing somewhat temporary results. It may contain active ingredients, though concentration of these actives is usually negligible. A cosmeceutical product differs from such cosmetic products, as it has a high concentration of active ingredients and usually comprises various active ingredients. This formulation can bring about visible changes to the skin making it a results-focused product. Cosmeceutical products are restricted to professional skin care vendors where a consultation can be provided.
