What are cosmeceuticals?
Cosmeceuticals= cosmetics+ pharmaceuticals
The definition of “cosmeceutical” J.Soc, Cosmet. Chem 13: 103-106
l   A cosmeceutical is a scientifically designed product
Intended for external application to human body
l   A cosmeceutical produces a useful, desired result
l   A cosmeceutical has desirable aesthetic properties
l   A cosmeceutical meets rigid chemical, physical and medical standards

Cosmeceutical products are marketed as cosmetics, but reputedly contain biologically active ingredients.

Dermatological research suggests that the bioactive ingredients used in cosmeceuticals have benefits beyond the traditional moisturizer (e.g., Chen et al., 2005; Zettersten, Ghadially, Feingold, Crumrine, & Elias, 1997). However, despite reports of benefits from some cosmeceutical products, there are no requirements to prove that these products live up to their claims.
The "cosmeceutical" label applies only to products applied topically, such as creams, lotions and ointments. Products which are similar in perceived benefits but ingested orally are known as nutricosmetics.~ Wikipedia
