Meaningless Cosmetics Claims You Shouldn’t Believe Part 4

Cosmeceuticals

Why it’s meaningless: The word “cosmeceutical” was dreamed up to describe cosmetics products that are supposed to have some level (proven or not) of special benefit over and above regular “cosmetics.” A combination of the word “cosmetic” and “pharmaceutical” and you have cosmeceutical.
The fact is, “cosmeceutical” is merely a marketing term; it has no regulation or standards behind it so anyone can call their product cosmeceutical, regardless of what it contains. There are no cosmeceutical-grade ingredients anywhere in the world.
