Cosmeceuticals represent a marriage between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals hence the word is a portmanteau of the words "cosmetic" and "pharmaceutical". Cosmeceuticals are cosmetic products that have pharmaceutical benefits. Like cosmetics, cosmeceuticals are topically applied, but better than ordinary cosmetic products they contain active ingredients that benefit the biological function of the skin. Cosmeceuticals improve appearance, but they do so by delivering nutrients necessary for healthy skin. Thus in cosmeceuticals skincare products, you will find two parts: the active ingredients of the "pharmaceutical" part and the base of ordinary "cosmetic" part. The advance of Twenty First Century nanotechnology helps cosmeceuticals scientists make even better products with a true effectiveness as it's definition.
Nanotechnology is one of the world's most exciting new technologies. It offers our skincare product developers the chance to innovatively create products with entirely new properties through the controlled manufacture and structuring of materials. At Dr Vu Cosmeceuticals new results in biotechnological research are generated to develop new processes and applications and use of nanostructured materials to formulations. To obtain the highest quality of the cosmetic emulsions part of our products, we only use the highest quality raw materials from the world leading companies such as Stepan and Dow in the USA, Hayashibara from Japan, and BASF from Germany, etc.
