Keep your skin clean with medical grade skincare

Many over-the-counter skincare products are readily available at drug stores, beauty retailers, department stores, and online.  These products are commonly used by people in their everyday skincare routines.  Although many product labels claim to contain ingredients that people are looking for, in reality they may only contain trace amounts.  Using these products may do very little to improve the skin, and no one wants to feel they have wasted their money.  There is no oversight by the FDA, and product testing is not required.  The user often has no idea what they are really purchasing.

Medical grade, or pharmaceutical grade, skincare products are prescribed by a medical doctor.  These products contain higher concentrations of their active ingredients, so they will penetrate into deeper levels of the skin to give better, clinically backed results.
