What are Cosmeceuticals?

Diabliss Herbal Water to Nurture Healthy Skin is a newer category of products called Cosmeceuticals.  They are cosmetic products with bioactive ingredients purported to deliver medical benefits.

Most products in the market for skin care consist of topical applications – lotions, creams and oils that are applied on the surface of the skin to deliver benefits.

Skin contains three main layers as shown in the figure below: Epidermis, Dermis and sub-cutis.  The epidermis layer provides a barrier to infection from environmental pathogens and regulates the amount of water released from the body into the atmosphere.

The dermis or corium is a layer of skin between the epidermis (with which it makes up the cutis) and subcutaneous tissues, that primarily consists of dense irregular connective tissue and cushions the body from stress and strain. Structural components of the dermis are collagen, elastic fibers, and extrafibrillar matrix which provide necessary firmness and elasticity to the skin.

Subcutis consists primarily of loose connective tissue, and contains larger blood vessels and nerves than those found in the dermis. It is a major site of fat storage in the body.  The arteries in this layer provide nutrients to the various skin layers and also the hair follicles and the waste products are discharge through the veins.

Figure below shows the anatomy of the skin.

Unlike topical applications, these products are designed to deliver benefits inside out, i.e., consuming certain nutraceuticals or biologically active ingredients that go to the root of the skin care issue and address the issue.  In this area, by providing highly biologically available forms of water-based ingredients, Diabliss is able to deliver measurable and clinically tested benefits.
