On a cosmetic day at the Botox Cosmetics store in Los Angeles, a large plastic bottle is filled with the cosmetic ingredient.
It contains a clear gel.
The gel is injected into the skin with a small tube.
The result: Botox cosmetic meaning.
“It’s a cosmetic that’s supposed to fix you,” says Botox Beauty and Bodycare CEO, Javi Hernandez.
“You know, a natural way to get rid of skin aging, and it’s kind of like the opposite of skincare.”
The idea behind Botox cosmetics is to remove unwanted features of the skin and create a smoother, younger looking appearance.
The gel is meant to restore healthy skin and is meant for cosmetic professionals.
“We think this is a great idea, and we’ve done a lot of research and testing on it, and have really taken a look at what people like and dislike about Botox,” Hernandez says.
“So we’ve found that it’s really popular and people are really interested in what it does for their skin.
We think it’s a good way to bring cosmetic products to the masses.”
The products were originally created by the company, but are now owned by Pfizer, a division of Pfizer PLC.
The products are currently available in over 50 countries and are sold on pharmacy shelves.
According to Hernandez, it’s important to note that Botox Cosmetic means what it says on the bottle.
“I mean, it actually says it’s for cosmetic care, and what it actually does is to help restore the skin’s natural pH level to where it’s supposed in the body,” Hernandez explains.
“And so if you get the right amount of it on the skin, it can help restore that.
So, you know, it really is a natural product.”
To get a better idea of the ingredients used in Botox, Hernandez has a customer call the company and request to see the ingredients list.
“When we got the call, we immediately saw that they were using the ingredients that we had on hand,” Hernandez tells Business Insider.
“But I don’t know how they got that ingredients list from the pharmacist, but that’s the ingredients they had in stock.
So we had to go to Pfizer and see what the ingredients were, and they had this list.”
For Hernandez, Botox was a natural choice for his business.
“I was a little bit surprised that it didn’t take off because we’ve been doing a lot in the past year or two with cosmetics, but this is really exciting,” he says.
Botox cosmetics are not only for cosmetic use, but also for cosmetic dermatologists.
“They are going to be doing some skin studies in the future,” Hernandez adds.
“The dermatologists are going be able to use this gel to get better skin, and for them to get an idea of what it looks like, they’re going to use it in their studies.”
Hernandez says Botax cosmetics have been used by thousands of doctors and have been approved by FDA to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, and other skin disorders.
