Your products are great but shouldn’t we be asking more questions?

Hello Dr. Irwin, I have been buying my products that you have recommended from your site. I have received excellent customer service. I am so pleased with my skin. My question is, should dermatologist's be asking questions of the chemist that actually make the products we are using? Aren't they the ones that know what ingredients will work the best? That seems it would eliminate a lot of guess work and money. What do you think? Thank you for all your help in choosing the products I use.

I totally agree with you.  I sometimes wish I had a degree in chemistry because the array of chemicals used in skin products is mind boggling and constantly changing.   I try to look these up and sometimes do actually call or email a chemist, but it could be a full-time job if I did it all the time.   🙂    Link to great products here.     Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
