Cosmeceuticals – Dermocosmetics


The word “Cosmeceuticals” was popularized by Albert M. Kligman, a U.S. dermatologist, in the late 1970s.  Cosmeceuticals are not simply traditional cosmetics but a skin care system that includes bioactive ingredients, which create physiological changes in skin cells to make skin appear younger and healthier.
FROIKA, adopted this whole skin care philosophy including the below most common ingredients in its Cosmeceutical range:

    • UV filters
    • Alpha hydroxy acids
    • Beta hydroxyl acids
    • Retinoids
    • Exfoliants
    • antioxidants
    • Moisturizers
    • Peptides/ proteins
    • Growth factors
    • De- pigmenting agents

FROIKA’s whole range improve the functioning/texture of the skin by enhancing collagen synthesis and combating harmful effects of free radicals, thus maintaining keratin structure in good condition and improving skin’s appearance.

On the other side the term “Dermocosmetics” already alludes to the combination of dermatology and skin care. It is a branch of dermatology concerned with the aesthetic appearance of skin using cosmetics in the scientific management of a variety of skin disorders. Cosmetics have now taken on a new role in dermatology due to scientific and technological advancements that have changed our knowledge about normal skin physiology and how cosmetics alter its appearance both physically and biologically.

FROIKA Dermocosmetics are recommended by health professionals (doctors, dermatologists, paediatricians, aesthetic physicians and pharmacists) for specific skincare needs because their ingredients are safe and effective. Thus, these products alone, or as an adjunct to pharmacological treatment, are regularly used to improve photoprotection, dry or aged skin, inflammatory skin disease such as acne, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and seborrhoeic dermatitis as well as a variety of hair and nail disorders. They are topically applied to the skin, scalp and hair, enhancing patients’ quality of life and self-esteem, and alleviating the side effects of some treatments.

Cosmeceuticals and Dermocosmetics are the fastest growing segments of the personal care industry due to the fact that, nowadays, most consumers have multiple needs, and they should be matched with products that offer ingredients with multifunctional benefits.

Froika has designed products that provide scientifically proven skin improvement crafted in elegant formulations that enhance skincare efficacy that ensure optimal results.
