Skinceuticals is a high-performance skincare brand known for its proven effectiveness. Dermatologists, surgeons, and aesthetic medicine specialists recommend these products both before and after treatments to maintain smooth, radiant skin and prevent signs of aging. From cleanser, to serum, face cream and sun protection, Skinceuticals got you covered! Found out more about this skincare known as “la crème de la crème” !

History of the Brand

Skinceuticals emerged from decades of scientific research into skin cancer, leading to groundbreaking discoveries in antioxidants. In 1994, Dr. Sheldon Pinnell, the future founder of SkinCeuticals, demonstrated the ability of topical Vitamin C to neutralize free radicals. In 1997, he registered the Duke patent and launched a range of professional skincare products. The company continues its scientific research, achieving a significant milestone in 2005 with the introduction of C E Ferulic, an antioxidant serum based on 15% pure vitamin C.

Each formula consists of top-of-the-range ingredients scientifically proven for effectiveness. Skinceuticals offers specific skincare products with concentrated formulas in pure active ingredients, termed "cosmeceuticals," blending the benefits of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Thanks to its proven effectiveness, Skinceuticals collaborates with specialist doctors, formulating its products in the United States and primarily producing them in France.

The Three Principles of Skinceuticals

Skinceuticals follows an anti-aging skincare method based on three fundamental principles:

1. Prevent: Protect the skin from damage caused by oxidation due to environmental influences, such as UV rays, pollution, stress, and smoking, by using topical antioxidants.

2. Correct: Address imperfections linked to skin aging, acne, spots, and dehydration using specific active ingredients.

3. Protect: Guard the skin from damage caused by UV rays by applying sun filters.
