The Dose Makes the Difference
Posted on September 12 2019
We say it a lot: Truth Treatments are Pharmacist formulated. But what does that really mean, and how does it affect your skin?
Pharmacists formulate with a different mentality than cosmetic chemists. Cosmetic chemists take active ingredients and put them into a skin care base, like a lotion or cream. While the active ingredients might be great, they get stuck in this dumbed-down base of water, waxes, oils or emulsifiers that may feel nice but do absolutely nothing to create change or health in the skin. So, the active ingredients are never really penetrating your skin, especially at the levels they’d need to to be effective.
As a Pharmacist, I formulate topical products with two main goals in mind: effectiveness and penetration. That means the ingredients penetrate into the skin at a cellular level, and at levels that actually WORK to create change in the skin. This approach to formulation makes Truth Treatment products more than just medical grade, we actually formulate MEDICINE to support the health and vitality of the skin.
When a product is formulated to be active, you want to be cognizant of how much you’re applying. You don’t want to just slather it on like a standard inactive moisturizer, you’re going to just waste product and not gain any efficacy! The dose makes the difference with our 100% active and functional products. As with a medicine, you have to take the proper dose to achieve the best results: Truth Treatments are meant to be dosed. To achieve optimal results, you want to use the Perfect Dose.
The Perfect Dose is an important and unusual concept in skin care because we are so used to slathering on products that don’t work! With Truth Treatments, the Perfect Dose is about:
1. POTENCY. These products are formulated at high concentrations for maximum potency.
2. CONSCIOUSNESS. Apply these formulations with consciousness that you’re doing something amazing for your skin with each application.
3. EFFICACY: You’re actually getting something that WORKS to change the skin.
We’re now making it easy to dispense the Perfect Dose with our NEW Truth Treatments Dosage Spoon, an engraved metallic tool that helps you dispense our jar products at the ideal dose - outlined by the Truth Treatments logo.
