Why You Shouldn't Buy Store-Brand Skincare Products

Why You Shouldn't Buy Store-Brand Skincare Products

From store-brand creams and serums to pricey brand-name lines of skin care, there’s no shortage of skincare products on the market. Although a higher price doesn’t necessarily mean a better product, there are reasons to avoid store-brand skincare products.  

Angie Bjorgaard, RN, BSN, and our aesthetic team at Sublime Aesthetic Professionals in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, are committed to helping clients in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, find the best skincare products for the healthiest skin. Keep reading to learn why you should avoid most store-brand products and how you can find the right skin care for you.   

The importance of active ingredients

Skincare products contain two types of ingredients: active and inactive. The active ingredients are the things that treat your skin. Inactive ingredients are the substances into which the active ingredients are dissolved. 

When it comes to skincare, the active ingredients are the most important part of the product. Store-brand skincare products typically use lower-quality active ingredients. Although they may cost less, they are also less effective.  This means that though they may have some benefits, store-brand products typically take much longer to produce the results you want. 

In other words? Although you may be saving some money initially, you’ll need to buy more of the product compared to a high-quality skincare product and may end up spending much more in the end.
