Top professional skincare lines for estheticians: Meet our faves for facials!

It wasn’t that long ago that we spoke about the importance of choosing professional skincare brands instead of over the counter. You can catch it up here. Yet that can all seem vague without really knowing all there is to know about them and why they are superior to their shop-bought counterparts. With so many options out there, however, it can feel completely overwhelming. Worry not, as this week, we’re dedicating our blog to what we believe are the best medical grade skincare brands out there – and why you should look out for them when choosing a facial treatment.

What do we look for in the best medical grade skincare?

Along with the brand’s reputation, we also consider the products’ ingredients and how they are sourced.

It’s always good to offer at least two brands so that you have more choice, flexibility and personalisation. This is why here at Lovoir we’re proud to carry Environ, O Cosmedics and Janesce as part of our facial treatments. So, without further ado, let’s find out all there is to know!

Environ Deep Cleansing Facial

Environ

Behind the brand

Desmond Fernandes, a world-renowned plastic surgeon from South Africa, championed the use of vitamin A and antioxidants in skincare products to ward off environmental damage. This was despite hefty criticism at the time, as while it is true that vitamin A can irritate the skin, he was confident that the right amount can do wonders for it. Thus, from an independent lab, he created his signature ‘step-up system’ that enables gradual, safe and professional results from retinoids – without side effects.

Janesce

Behind the brand

Janice Smith utilised moments from her whole life when she built her brand. From gaining a love of nature from her dad, an understanding of diet from her mum and an insatiable quest for knowledge, she eventually created her own path into naturopathy and beauty therapy because this did not yet exist in 1960s’ Australia. Unconventional at the time but one of the pillars of cosmetic science today, she remained steadfast in her conviction that a very real, very strong connection exists between nutrition and skin health. Realising she was, indeed, a pioneer, she accepted that the only logical next step was to create her own skincare range. And thus, after buying a little farm to grow herbs in 1986, Janesce was born. It is – to this day – a company which remains a family business, not a big corporation.

Inside the brand

One of the leading principles of this organic line is that your skin is a reflection of your life. This means its products are intended to work in tandem with a healthy lifestyle, diet and emotional wellbeing.

Potent, plant-based, ethical and natural, the ingredients used in the products are handpicked – keeping their integrity – and left to mature in the lab for years (like a fine wine). Believe it or not, this is an incredibly rare practice in botanical skincare! As a result, Janesce products contain up to 70% more plant actives than competing brands.
