It wasn’t that long ago that we spoke about the importance of choosing professional skincare brands instead of over the counter. You can catch it up here. Yet that can all seem vague without really knowing all there is to know about them and why they are superior to their shop-bought counterparts. With so many options out there, however, it can feel completely overwhelming. Worry not, as this week, we’re dedicating our blog to what we believe are the best medical grade skincare brands out there – and why you should look out for them when choosing a facial treatment.
What do we look for in the best medical grade skincare?
Along with the brand’s reputation, we also consider the products’ ingredients and how they are sourced.
It’s always good to offer at least two brands so that you have more choice, flexibility and personalisation. This is why here at Lovoir we’re proud to carry O Cosmedics, DP Dermaceuticals and Janesce as part of our facial treatments. So, without further ado, let’s find out all there is to know!
Dp Dermaceuticals are the only protocol products specifically developed to be used during and in combination with Dermapen microneedling treatments, to help your skin achieve optimum health and improvement. Each product has been carefully crafted at the correct molecular weight for efficacy in your skin, for safe infusion without side effects, and for everyday use at home to achieve your ultimate skin goals. A base component of each product in the line is Hyaluronic Acid, specifically the breakthrough HylaFuse Complex, with an ability to deliver other active ingredients into the skin’s deeper layers. Each cleanser, serum and cream has been designed to address various skin needs to achieve superior outcomes and for optimum skin health.
Behind the brand
Led by founder Marie Enna-Cocciolone, the brand is the collaborative result of leading scientists around the world and local cosmetic chemists. Its products are based on decades of scientific research and clinical data.
Inside the brand
Formulated with medical-grade and potent active ingredients in their purest form, such as vitamins, antioxidants, peptides and essential oils, all their products focus on functional, results-driven skincare while remaining cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. It aims to deliver self-confidence and timeless beauty via a healthy dose of skin healing and rejuvenation. Its flagship ingredient is the world exclusive V8 Peptide Complex, which it uses in almost all its products. V8 Peptide Complex works behind the scenes on the essential cell structure of skin, giving it the ultimate healthy glow.
Behind the brand
Janice Smith utilised moments from her whole life when she built her brand. From gaining a love of nature from her dad, an understanding of diet from her mum and an insatiable quest for knowledge, she eventually created her own path into naturopathy and beauty therapy because this did not yet exist in 1960s’ Australia. Unconventional at the time but one of the pillars of cosmetic science today, she remained steadfast in her conviction that a very real, very strong connection exists between nutrition and skin health. Realising she was, indeed, a pioneer, she accepted that the only logical next step was to create her own skincare range. And thus, after buying a little farm to grow herbs in 1986, Janesce was born. It is – to this day – a company which remains a family business, not a big corporation.
Inside the brand
One of the leading principles of this organic line is that your skin is a reflection of your life. This means its products are intended to work in tandem with a healthy lifestyle, diet and emotional wellbeing.
Potent, plant-based, ethical and natural, the ingredients used in the products are handpicked – keeping their integrity – and left to mature in the lab for years (like a fine wine). Believe it or not, this is an incredibly rare practice in botanical skincare! As a result, Janesce products contain up to 70% more plant actives than competing brands.
