Skin Care & Synthetic IngredientsWhen it comes to skin care, we’ve been conditioned by the media to avoid any products containing “synthetic” ingredients. Mostly due to fear mongering and attempts to sell their own “natural” products, many companies have convinced the public that all synthetics are harmful, toxic and hazardous to our health. While this can be true for some types of synthetic ingredients, including phthalates and parabens, this is not true for numerous others, including many important actives that are found in anti-aging skin care.

Why would someone want to use a synthetic ingredient when they can use a natural extract instead? Surely the one from nature is better for us?

Not necessarily. Just as there are toxic synthetic ingredients, there are also toxic natural ingredients. Natural extracts are also less regulated than synthetics and are not required to be purified. Some also contain undesirable and/or irritating compounds.

Most of the effective and leading-edge ingredients today (such as peptides, antioxidants and intense hydrators) occur naturally in nature, but are reproduced in labs. These are ingredients that are often derived from nature and then manipulated, hence, they are considered “synthetic”.

Synthetic active ingredients are not always created because they are cheaper to manufacture, as some would believe. In advanced skin care, it’s because they often don’t occur naturally in the concentrations needed to truly be effective. Also by manipulating the raw extract, we have the ability to isolate the beneficial components, remove undesirable components, purify it, increase its potency and make it more compatible with the skin.

At Dreamline Ceuticals, we include the use of safe synthetic ingredients that help us achieve the results we require in our private label skin care formulations. It’s important to note that we utilize both natural and synthetic ingredients, using only the highest-grade ingredients, in combination, for optimum efficacy. And even more importantly, our anti-aging private label formulations have no parabens, sulfates or phthalates. They are also cruelty-free & vegan friendly. We create sophisticated multi-functional products that address the many different concerns of the skin, developed by world-class chemists in our lab.
