What is cosmeceutical skincare?

What is Cosmeceutical Skincare?

Although there is no official definition of 'cosmeceuticals', it is generally industry accepted that it refers to products that contain a high concentration of powerful, active ingredients that give you the most transformative results for your skin.

Cosmeceutical skincare is considered to be scientifically advanced skincare backed by research and clinical studies. 

Traditional skincare products may only address basic skincare needs such as moisturisation or skin barrier repair. 

However your skin requires science-backed, active ingredients in order to target anti-ageing concerns and to give you the best results. 

Traditional cosmeceutical ingredients include Vitamin C, niacinamide and peptides, and one of the most exciting emerging cosmeceuticals is bakuchiol.

Is Status Quo Cosmeceutical Skincare?

Yes- and more. Status Quo is the result of more than 30 years of research, innovation and multiple patents from our lead scientist, German-educated, New Zealand-based Sigrid Vorwerk. 

Working with her international team of scientists in partnership with renowned dermatological laboratories in ItalySigrid combined her career's research into skin biology and cell health to develop her most innovative advancement yet- the Status Quo 3-Step Ritual. 

Are just active ingredients enough?

No- and this is how Status Quo is different. 

Sigrid and her team combined their research and advancements into proven and emerging cosmeceuticals and pioneering clinically-backed, powerful plant extracts and natural ingredients to create the exclusive, one-of-a-kind Status Quo formulas. 

Multiple skincare concerns- fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, pores, redness, dehydration, acne and skin elasticity- are addressed with just 3 potent, powerful products. 

Skincare is a precise chemistry. It's not enough- can even be damaging- to only use the highest potency active ingredients on your skin. This is why expert formulation is key when it comes to transformative skincare. 

Don't forget sunscreen

The sun is responsible for 80% of premature skin ageing so protecting yourself from the sun is paramount. Apply and reapply sunscreen daily, stay out of the sun during peak UV hours, and use protective clothing and hats to shield your precious skin from the sun in order to help prevent those fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.
