Beauty Doctors - Cosmeceutical Store Opened by Dr. Joel Schlessinger
This article starts by pointing out that Dr. Joel Schlessinger opened the country’s first brick-and-mortar store focused solely on cosmeceuticals.

“Cosmeceuticals” is a term that many people may not be familiar with, but they probably use them every day. Cosmeceuticals are applied topically, like cosmetics, but contain ingredients that have pharmaceutical benefits. If you use toothpaste that contains fluoride, then you’re using a cosmeceutical; if you use makeup that contains sun protection, then that’s a cosmeceutical, too.

The Food and Drug Administration does not regulate cosmeceuticals because they are what we typically call “over the counter” products rather than prescription based.

The Beauty Doctor article also highlights the success of the doctor’s brick-and-mortar store.

LovelySkin's Flagship Store
The LovelySkin store is more than 20,000 square feet in size, located in Omaha, Nebraska, containing more than 170 top quality brands and 7,000 products. The licensed aestheticians and highly trained sales associates have all been handpicked by the doctor to provide the best experience for your skin condition. Staff typically rotates from the doctor’s dermatology practice to the store to deepen their knowledge of skin care issues.

At the retail store, sales break down as follows:

  • 75% are skin care products, with top brands being Obagi, SkinMedica, NeoCutis, NeoStrata, Lumiere, La Roche Posay and Kinerase
  • 25% are cosmetic products, with top brands being Colorescience, Jane Iredale and glo minerals
