from the Philosophy website :
the best cosmetics is great-looking skin
Philosophy was created by Cristina Carlino in 1996. Cristina has spent the last 25 years of her life in the health, wellness and beauty industry. She is the founder and former CEO of BioMedic, the highly acclaimed medical skincare company endorsed by thousands of dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide.
Philosophy was created to help bridge the gap between what women were getting in doctors offices vs. what they were getting from a spa or high-end department store.
Philosophy was inspired by years of medical research that has helped to shape the skin care treatment, peels and protocols currently offered in top plastic surgery and dermatology practices. A coalition of leading physicians and scientists are committed and dedicated to the future development of Philosophy products.
