Creating Perfect Chemistry:
The 4 Pillars of CosMedix
According to CosMedix, “it takes perfect chemistry to create stable, efficacious products that interact optimally with your skin.” This meticulous take on formulating skin care products is what makes CosMedix one of the most formidable skin care lines in the industry. Its products work with your skin to target skin aging and other skin problems—without the irritation or downtime of conventional treatments. How? CosMedix makes sure that each of its formulas adheres to these 4 pillars: Chiral Correction, Botanicals, Exfoliation and Skin Support Matrix.
While two forms of an ingredient may be chemically identical, the difference in their shapes generates different responses from your skin. In short, only the chirally correct form of an ingredient can interact correctly with the cell receptor in your skin and trigger the right response, while the wrong form can collect on the skin’s surface and cause irritation. CosMedix ensures optimal efficacy and safety of its products by making sure that each of its ingredients is chirally correct.
Powered by Botanicals
Each of CosMedix’s formula contains 100% pure essential oils and plant-based ingredients, and none of the harmful ingredients present in majority of skin and hair care products in the market such as paraben, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), polyethylene glycol (PEG), animal by-product, and artificial fragrance and colors.
To ensure that botanical nutrients penetrate well and are delivered to the cells, CosMedix uses less aggressive, yet effective ingredients to slough off the skin’s rough outer layer. Among which are alpha hydroxy acids (sloughs off dead skin cells), beta hydroxy acids (has anti-inflammatory benefits), protease enzymes (fights free radicals and breaks down proteins into nutrients), and retinoids or Vitamin A (enhances collagen production and promotes cell regeneration).
Skin Matrix Support
CosMedix ensures that its skin care line is equipped with all the nutrients needed to combat biochemical processes that accelerate skin aging like oxidative stress (brought about by free radicals) and mitochondrial burnout (happens when mitochondria, the part of the cell that transforms food to fuel, degenerates with age). These biochemical processes breaks down cellular defenses and destroys collagen and elastin critical for skin’s youthful firmness and elasticity.
With these 4 pillars behind each of CosMedix’s products, expect that you’ll get nothing less than perfect for your skin.
