COSMINOLOGY – COSMICALLY HEALTHY SKIN
My name is Dr. Dima Ali and I have been practicing Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine for over 20 years. I have been making my own skincare since I was in high school. I was very influenced by my father who has a PhD in Petroleum Engineering and Chemistry from Stanford University. He would often take me to his lab at Stanford and my first memories of bunsen burners and flasks full of bubbling potions were from the age of 4. At home, he was always coming up with home remedies as well for all of our ailments. My mother, sisters and I suffered from eczema and could not tolerate any over the counter skincare. I was also a long-time acne sufferer with a propensity for hyperpigmentation. I became determined to create effective skincare formulations that we could all tolerate without breaking out in a rash. Growing up in North Africa gave me access to many herbal remedies and raw ingredients (that have since been well documented in the scientific community) that were indigenous to that area. My passion for skincare continued through medical school and residency where I continued to make products in my kitchen for family and friends. When I started my cosmetic derm practice, the formulations took place in my office laboratory where I continue to custom formulate topicals for individual patient needs - especially those with very sensitive skin.
I believe that healthy, beautiful skin empowers the individual to look better and feel better about themselves whether they have an adverse skin condition or not. Cosminology is about self-care with products that nourish the mind-body connection so that each individual can allow the light from within to radiate. Cosminology is clinically, physically and emotionally healing. It began as a desire to formulate topical products that me and my family could tolerate. It then became a very personal desire to do what is best for my patients. Finally, it has evolved into a more "cosmic" desire to share this with anyone who can benefit. Cosminology is a “true labor of love” and I hope it can play a small part in raising each individuals vibration helping them to create a more balanced life.
WHY IS COSMINOLOGY UNIQUE?
My philosophy is to combine the best skin actives in high concentration with soothing, calming botanicals. If you look at the ingredients of most skincare on the market, the ingredients that really make a difference are noticeably low on the list. Low concentration translates into less effectiveness. With Cosminology products, the actives such as Retinol, Vitamin C and E in this product are high up on the ingredient list making this a potent formula. That translates into better results. When skin is being “transformed” to a healthier state, it can go through an adjustment phase. This can include a little dryness and maybe redness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ve added healing botanicals to counteract this effect and soothe the skin. So your skin will become healthier without having to deal with the potential side effects of cell turnover. This increases individual compliance which in turn leads to visible results. My COSMINOLOGY formulations leverage the power of science and nature by following ancient, holistic healing methods– creating balance between mind, body, and spirit. COSMINOLOGY blends pure, potent ingredients and unmatched performance with a playful wit and infinite positive energy.
