Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 30, 2005
Cosmeceuticals is a growing trend in the cosmetics industry, estimated to reach a staggering $7.2 billion in sales by 2008. More and more doctors are tacking their names on to products, lending the impression that their brands are somehow “medical” in nature or more effective. But do these products work? And what exactly are cosmeceuticals?
Paula Begoun’s new article “Cosmeceuticals: Science, Marketing, or a Little of Both?” explores the phenomenon of the cosmeceutical craze, and gets beyond the hype to the truth about this expanding skin-care category. In her new 936-word article, Cosmetics Cop (http://www.cosmeticscop.com) and best-selling beauty author Paula Begoun answers the following questions:
-- Who is regulating this increasingly popular section of the cosmetics industry?
