For a dermatologist, there can be a lot of satisfaction to gain from creating  your own skincare product.  However, it can be really expensive to do.  It is important to keep in mind that to create the product you want, it could be upwards of $50,000.  It can become even more expensive if you choose to include an active ingredient such as salicylic acid.  In addition, you’ll need to do studies to prove that they are effective in your product

The easiest place to start is with an uncomplicated skincare product that are made with everyday ingredients.  These include moisturizers, anti-aging and acne formulations that don’t have any FDA regulated active ingredients.

He is satisfied that so many have found relief from conditions such as eczema and psoriasis because of his product.
