Q. What does the tag line "Truth is Beauty" mean?
A. For generations, the beauty industry has relied on adjectives and superlatives to sell products. Cosmedicine takes a different approach. The formulators of Cosmedicine believe that consumers today are seeking an ethical consciousness and a sense of reliability with which to align themselves. They also believe that it is not acceptable to exaggerate one's abilities or to promise things you may not be able to deliver. Cosmedicine is committed to developing topical skin care products that truthfully and reliably deliver as promised.

Q. How does Cosmedicine promote healthy skin?
A. First, Cosmedicine formulations effectively protect skin's functions and filter out damage wrought by the sun, the environment, or just the wear and tear of everyday life. Second, these advanced formulations strengthen the skin and enable it to quickly respond to both external damage and the damaging effects of time, and repair itself, accordingly.
Q. What is the key ingredient in Cosmedicine?
A. The formulators of Cosmedicine believe that no one single ingredient, no matter how effective or proactive, can single-handedly solve skin's complex needs and provide a healthy skin solution. For this reason, unlike many formulas that feature just a few super-star ingredients, Cosmedicine formulations take a synergistic approach. This synergistic approach means that the ingredients in Cosmedicine products work together to advance the performance of each other which provides enhanced results. Each Cosmedicine product that stays on your face includes all the ingredients – vitamins, proteins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids – that your skin needs to be healthy.
Q. What is a Drug Facts Panel?
A. Many beauty aficionados will notice that the packaging for Cosmedicine has a different appearance from many other brands. What you are seeing is a Drug Facts Panel. This is required by law for over-the-counter drugs. Products that are intended to treat or prevent disease or otherwise affect structure or function of the human body are considered drugs. This includes cosmetics that make therapeutic claims. Before products with both a cosmetic and drug classification can be marketed, they must be scientifically proven safe and effective for their therapeutic claims.
Cosmedicine products make these types of claims and thus must meet the necessary labeling requirements. The Drug Facts Panel contains nine separate sections ranging from "Uses" to "Warnings." It is the dominant package feature of many over-the-counter (OTC) products. The way to tell if you are purchasing a cosmetic that is also regulated as a drug is to check if the first ingredient listed is an "active ingredient." Ingredients labeled as "inactive" are listed in order of decreasing amount; the first ingredient is the most predominant in the formula.
Q. Is Cosmedicine Anti-aging Skincare?
A. Cosmedicine is committed to promoting the healthiest skin possible. The formulators of Cosmedicine believe that you can fight aging all you like, but that won't stop it from happening. Skin is going to age. The question is how well and how soon? That said, they also believe that with the right care, many aspects of skin aging can be postponed and that premature aging can be prevented. It's all within your control. The sooner one begins using Cosmedicine, the sooner your skin will be prepared to resist external damage and the effects of time – and the sooner you will show a beautiful, healthy, glowing face to the world.
