When I began working in the field of dermatology, I was given the opportunity to learn about and sell very different lines of skin care products.
I’d grown up with all of the big drug store and high end department store names but had never really heard of these elite skin care lines that only licensed dermatologists seemed to know about.
Unfortunately, dermatologists or physicians are also the only ones, in most cases, who can purchase, market, prescribe and distribute to the general public, meaning—their patient base.
Every once in awhile you may be able to find one of these products on Amazon or eBay for sale but according to the manufacturers, these items are being sold under false identities and without permission from the companies to distribute.
For instance, ELTA MD has an incredible skin care line that focuses mainly on superior sunscreen protection while offering out of this world moisturizers and cleansers as a part of their new blue and white line.
Avene, Glytone and Neocutis are other big names in the dermatology world and they offer everything from cleansers and moisturizers to scar creams and skin bleaching agents for those with dark spots or severe hyperpigmentation.
Each company has an amazing line with incredible, well documented results and their prices are in well in line or less expensive than those of your well known department store brands.
The only differences?
These products actually work and aren’t packaged in shimmery, glass and gold packaging as I would imagine their marketing budgets are quite a bit smaller than that of Estee Lauder or Lancome.
I can’t wait for the day when these products are offered to the general population for use as I don’t really have the extra time or money to visit a dermatologist for product access.
