TOC Medical Spa - ProductsAuthor: Erin Wayt, R.N.

Do you know where your skin care products are made? In our fast paced lives, many of us may not stop to think where the products we use in our daily regimen are manufactured.  If you are like me, you probably throw them on quickly and move on to the next task.

Why does it matter where they’re made?  Actually, there are quite a few reasons to purchase products that are manufactured in the United States.  Here are just a few:

First, you want to know that what you are putting on your face is safe.  Foreign countries do not follow the same chemical and ingredient restrictions we follow, and their product safety standards are low.  Secondly, when you buy skin care products made in the U.S., you are contributing to the growth of our economy. Last, but definitely not least, the lack of minimum wage in some countries, the presence of unsafe working conditions, and non-existent environmental pollution controls undermine the concept of “free trade” or “fair trade”.  When you choose to buy American-made, you demand a higher standard.  This is not to say that all other countries don’t follow strict standards like the United States, but it is definitely something to be mindful of and do your research on.

At TOC Med Spa, you can buy American-made skin care products with confidence.  10 of our 13 product lines are American-made and 5 of them are made right here in Texas!  From SkinCeuticals® and Neocutis® to Clarisonic®!  Come in and see us today.
