Mucocutaneous diseases and conditions, including aging, are known to be the result of multiple pathophysiologic anomalies induced by various environmental insults. Creating therapeutic products for these multifactorial diseases and conditions is challenging. Although safety testing is not required for cosmetics and cosmeceuticals, consumer expectation is for products to be effective and well tolerated while maintaining cosmetic elegance. This requires that the finished product being sold to consumers should be tested in human clinical trials for safety profile, efficacy, and scientific integrity. Using unique herbal blends has indicated that it is possible to develop products with these standards while maintaining cosmetic elegance in products that consumers will use on a daily basis. This review describes the benefits of such herbal blends over leading gold standard prescription age-reversing technologies and the use of such products to accelerate and improve healing after controlled wounding with cosmetic procedures.
