A lot of people have asked me why I am not selling CYRx MD Skincare in department stores, especially since all I used prior to @cyrmd.skincare were the fancy, very expensive brands sold there. The answer is tricky, but this article does as good of a job explaining it as any I’ve read.
“If you are looking for long lasting results, medical grade skincare should be the only products you are using. Medical grade products are superior to those that can be purchased over the counter or at a department store. Pharmaceutical/medical grade products can only be sold in (or by) a licensed physician’s office (or medical spa), as they contain the highest percentage of active ingredients with the highest purity. These ingredients are effective, tiny in molecular size, and vital to physically changing the appearance of the skin. They are able to penetrate the epidermis (outer layer) and the dermis (lower layer). Below the dermis is where we can find collagen, elastin, pigmentation, as well as where our new cells are produced. These active ingredients can help retexture the skin, minimize fine lines, diminish the effects of sun damage, reduce pigmentation, and much more.
Since no medical license is needed to sell over the counter (OTC) products, they can be purchased anywhere. Such products are made for a mass market (general public) and have a higher level of preservatives, allowing them to sit on store shelves for years. They do not contain active high grade ingredients and are larger in molecular size than medical grade products. This makes it difficult for OTCs to penetrate the epidermis (outer layer) or the dermis (lower layer), and treat the problem from its core.
If you are looking to address your skins needs, medical grade / pharmaceutical products are the quickest and safest way to get the results you are looking for...using OTCs will only act as a Band-Aid.” (source: Deepblue / October 2015)
