Pharmaceutical Grade vs Cosmetic Grade Ingredients

All of Gerda Spillmann’s skin care and cosmetic products are made with only 100% Pharmaceutical Grade Ingredients.  Why the fuss over such a title on ingredients?

Pharmaceutical Grade – subject to FDA (Food and Drug Administration) Regulation and must meet their requirement that products are 99.9% pure ingredients.  This high quality level of ingredients must contain 0.1%, or less, of bacteria.  Only 5% of the entire skin care industry can meet such high standards to be considered Pharmaceutical Grade.

Cosmetic Grade – not subject to any regulations, safety testing or required review of ingredients. The FDA allows cosmetic grade products to contain up to 30% bacteria; this is why department store and drug store brands recommended throwing away your products after 60 to 90 days.  The other 95% of skin care products marketed are cosmetic grade, a significant shift down in quality from pharmaceutical grade; and if you don’t use it all inside the short time frame, also a waste of your money.

There is a significant difference in the quality of these two types of ingredients, and if you are like us, you want to apply only the best to your skin and face.  Gerda Spillmann products may not be found in the department stores or local chain stores but that’s because we spend valuable dollars in ingredients and products that will work, instead of in advertising.  Dollar for dollar, you will find superior results with the Swiss formulated and manufactured Gerda Spillmann products.
