Blog Cosmedoc.si is everything but the usual blog about cosmetics, because it presents the facts about cosmetic active ingredients and their use. The creators and authors of the blog are two ˝commited to make changes˝ cosmetic engineers – Neli and Tajka. We share mutual enthusiasm for laboratory experiments, chemical formulas and love for cosmetics. We are interested in a lot of things and whatever we start, we always want to get to the bottom of it.
The idea of creating a blog came up while working as a student – promotion and consulting for natural cosmetics. Many customers were questioning us about the ingredients in products and we were happy to share the knowledge we had gained while studying. Nowadays, it seems that the awareness of consumers is rising. Making sure they find the best product for their health and skincare within the innumerable amount of cosmetic products just by searching for reliable information. The only problem is finding understandable and brief ˝instructins˝ for a layman and differentiating between lies and facts. The only problem for a layman is to find understandable and concise “instructions” and to know the difference between lies and facts. Well, we had decided to fill in this gap.
We want to combine information about ingredients and skincare at one place to break some myths and to present scientific facts that can be easily understood. The hardest part is not to summarize the long-winded sentences, including enormous foreign and professional expressions from technical literature … to make you sound familiar; but to explain the complex scientific findings in a simple and comprehensive way. That’s real art!
In addition, we want to present our college major to the general public, the cosmetic engineer (cosmetology) college. No, it’s not a cosmetic school. It’s a university study program of Faculty of Pharmacy in Ljubljana. Our programme curriculum consists of cell biology with genetics and microbiology to the toxicology and immunology of the skin with immunochemistry etc.
Long story short – here are the first facts:
Cosmedoc is sometimes fun, but always written as a semi-professional blog about skincare and cosmetics.
Cosmedoc acts as a counterweight to many “fake news” information, powered by strong marketing lobbies;
Cosmedoc spreads reliable and scientifically supported information.
Cosmedoc is already collaborating with 3 Slovenian companies and preparing professional content for their blogs.
We wish you a pleasant reading in hope that our articles will be as instructive as entertaining and our tips to be useful in everyday life.
