Buyer Beware! Do You Know What’s In Your Skincare?

We spend a lot of time thinking about what we feed our bodies. When it comes to our food, we are careful to read the labels and scrutinize the ingredients. Ultimately, we are trying to keep our bodies happy and healthy. Now, we ask, how much attention do you give to what you are putting on your skin?

Professional Skincare Can Be Trusted

It turns out, we need to very particular about our skincare. Case in point, last fall, it was widely reported that at least three major retailers’ aloe vera gels did not contain any trace of actual aloe vera. “The aloe vera gel many Americans buy to soothe damaged skin contains no evidence of aloe vera at all,” Bloomberg News reported—a cheap sugar replacement was used instead.

Reports like these emphasize why it is essential we pay special attention to what we put on our skin each and every day. Professional and medical grade skincare are a good place to start. Clinically proven to have a positive effect on the skin, the benefits of professional skin care products include:

  • Formulated of high quality ingredients with proven results
  • Tested for safety and efficacy
  • Contain a high quantity and percentage of active ingredients including retinol, antioxidants, and peptides, and growth factors
  • Penetrate deep into the skin to create a biological change and to improve the skin’s overall health
  • Properly and safely packaged, stored, and distributed

Dr. Doyle strongly advocates that her patients here in East Greenwich trust their skin only to professional and medical grade skincare.

You Can Be Sure of Your Skincare at CentreFARS

We recently posted another example of consumer deception on CentreFARS’ Facebook page. Environ®, one of the brands we feature at our Rhode Island practice, cautioned consumers of unauthorized websites selling their products. “We cannot assure the authenticity or condition of any Environ products that they sell,” they warned. When skincare is sold by a licensed distributor, we are subject to imitation and fraudulent products with unknown ingredients and no quality assurance. Not only are these products unsafe to use, they can even cause long-term damage.

Stories such as this one exemplify just how important it is to purchase your products from an established retailor. CentreFARS is proud to offer our patients a number of professional skincare products from some of the leading skincare brands including Biopelle®, Environ®, and Revision® Skincare. We recently introduced Perk™ Skin System, a new hybrid skin treatment, to better serve our patients skincare needs. We also feature HealthyCell© Pro, a supplement system that promotes cellular health.
