With the use of correct products, your skin is more likely to look its best and be healthy, as opposed to noticing little to no changes at all when using the wrong products for your particular skin type or condition.
Cosmeceutical Skincare has become a science that requires extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the skin and the interaction that is has with certain topical ingredients and preparations.
Why is taking care of your skin so important?
The skin is the largest organ of the human body and its function is to protect our internal organs from the external environment. To put it simply, skin doesn’t allow just anything to pass the protective barrier. Facial serums and moisturising creams require advanced formulations containing high levels of active ingredients (‘actives’) in order to deliver essential vitamins and minerals into the skin.
Cosmeceutical or “medical-grade” skincare products contain active ingredients that are effective for rejuvenating, renewing, replenishing and protecting the skin.
Although many skin care products available on the market claim to do this, they simply do not have a significant amount of active ingredients needed to substantiate these claims. Additionally, the molecular makeup of the products is also important in what can and can’t penetrate the skin to have greater effect on the appearance of the skin.
Most store-bought products simply coat or cover the skin. This may lead to some short-term improvement in the look and feel of the skin, but in essence, these topical-only products impart no long-term benefits.
Medical grade Cosmeceutical Skincare contains active ingredients such as:
- Zinc/titanium (sunscreen)
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B) – helps to improve skin immunity and cell metabolism
- Antioxidants – including vitamin C, help to mop up free radicals caused by environmental damage
- AHA/BHA (alpha-hydroxy acids/beta hydroxy acids) – helps to exfoliate and renew the skin
- Growth factors – a relatively new addition, growth factors help to repair and regenerate skin
At the Coco Ruby Skin & Anti Ageing Clinic we recommend some of the most advanced Cosmeceutical Skincare brands in the world that deliver results.
Some of the best cosmeceutical products for helping to treat skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles or pigmentation are available at Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing.

Medik8 products are suitable for the most sensitive skin without compromising efficacy.

DNA Renewal Skincare Range
DNA Renewal combines two scientific breakthroughs – DNA repair enzymes and plant-based Growth Factor into one streamlined approach for rapidly correcting and protecting skin types. The organisation was founded by Dr Ronald Moy, a leading dermatologist and Facial Plastic Surgeon in Los Angeles California. The DNA range includes:
- DNA Regeneration System
- DNA Intensive Renewal
- DNA Night Renewal
- DNA Eye Renewal
- DNA Foaming Cleansing Gel
- DNA Defense Moisturiser with Sun Protection
- DNA Sheer Defense Light
- DNA Sheer Defense Medium
- DNA Scar Therapy
DNA Repair Enzymes are your skin’s natural protection against aging and sun damage, however significant decreases in DNA Repair Enzymes are seen as soon as the age of 30 years old. Research from the National Institute of Health (NIH) has shown that replenishing these DNA Repair Enzymes in your skin encourages the recognition and elimination of DNA damage.
In our DNA Renewal products, a trio of powerful enzymes are engineered from marine and botanical sources such as plankton and are delivered via liposomes to penetrate the skin deeply, thus helping to reverse DNA damage such as brown spots, wrinkles and discoloration.
The study of DNA Repair Enzymes won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2015. As seen in the Skin Cancer Foundation Journal, DNA Repair Enzymes also play a prominent role in repairing sun damage, thereby helping to work against skin cancer. For more detailed information visit www.DNAegfRenewal.com

Since being founded in 1999, CosMedix has sourced the finest ingredients from all over the world.

The CosMedix promise is simple: to give you the strongest, most effective tools to help your skin look and feel its very best.
CosMedix’s continued innovation and groundbreaking success comes from focused attention to our four pillars: smarter exfoliation, better botanical ingredients, skin matrix support and chiral correction for superior product performance.
Here is how it works:
Smarter Exfoliation by gently removing your dead and dull skin, the face appears brighter, pores are refined, and fine lines and wrinkles appear less pronounced. When exfoliation is added to your skin care regimen, it stimulates cell rejuvenation and aids in effective delivery of our active ingredients in our skin care. This means optimal penetration and maximum efficacy for unsurpassed results.
CosMedix and Botanicals including Pure Essential Oils
CosMedix is continuously on the search for the best in plant-derived ingredients and pure essential oils. We concentrate these ingredients for maximum effectiveness without the use of artificial colors or fillers. We continue to look to nature first to solve your skin care needs.
Skin Matrix Support CosMedix has proven results because of Nobel award winning technology in pharmaceuticals including Spin Trap, Fullereness and Liquid Crystals, This refined skin matrix support helps to nourish the skin and provide the building blocks for cell rejuvenation and skin restoration.
Chirality refers to the right-handedness and left-handedness of the molecules in our bodies. CosMedix uses chirally correct ingredients that have been filtered to contain only molecules that positively interact with the skin. This reduces adverse reactions and allows for the highest concentrations of active ingredients for increased effectiveness. Think of chirally-corrected ingredients like the key that unlocks the skin’s best self. For more detailed information visit www.cosmedix.com
