What is all the hype about medical grade lotions and skin care? 

Medical grade skin care products are considered better quality than conventional over-the-counter alternatives. The reason for this is because medical grade skin care companies will often use the same ingredients as pharmaceutical ones which you usually need a prescription for, only in smaller quantities.¹

‘Most of the medical-grade companies will use highly stabilized ingredients that last longer and take longer to degrade,’ according to board certified dermatologist and fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, Rachel Nazarian, MD.²

This means that medical grade lotions are generally more effective at treating specific skin conditions and are not just cosmetic.

What Are the Challenges with Using Medical Grade Lotions?

The problem with using medical grade lotions and skin care products is that they are often harder to find. Many of them are only sold in dermatology offices and are not available in mainstream stores. 

Another key issue is the price. Medical grade lotions often come with a hefty price tag when compared to the more readily available over-the-counter lotions. This is because medical grade lotions are often developed to a higher standard using quality ingredients that provide effective results.¹

However, what can be confusing is that many nonmedical grade lotions can also be very expensive. How are you to know which lotions are actually worth paying the price for?

Why Is Gloves in a Bottle Different? 

Fortunately, a shielding lotion like Gloves in a Bottle provides the effective results you would expect from a medical grade lotion but it comes without the high price tag.

Not only is Gloves in a Bottle approved by dermatologists, it is also so safe and effective that it is approved for use in hospitals and operating rooms.

Whatever the skin condition you are battling or trying to prevent, Gloves in a Bottle helps to create a natural shield on the outer layer of the skin, allowing the lower layers of skin to heal with its own natural oils. Because it bonds with the outer layers of the skin, it won’t wash off and is long-lasting.

The icing on the cake is that Gloves in a Bottle is available not only at dermatologist offices and doctor’s offices, it can also be found at pharmacies and can be bought online.

An effective lotion that does it all and is easy to get your hands on (no pun intended), what more could you want?
