Discover SkinCeuticals

Research and innovation are at the core of the SkinCeuticals mission, and their dedication to science has established the brand as a leader in the advanced skincare arena. The company’s founding was the direct result of a revolutionary discovery that set the standard for antioxidant formulation. SkinCeuticals continues to pioneer next-generation products that will optimize the health and beauty of the skin—and change the face of skincare for years to come.

The Brand

SkinCeuticals’ product philosophy and consumer education programs are built around the principles of Prevention, Protection, and Correction. These three steps address and minimize the effects that environmental aggressors have on the skin and the use of topical antioxidants play an important part in this.

Antioxidant Science

An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules.
Oxidation is a type of damage that occurs when molecules lose electrons. Five types of antioxidants found naturally in the body that protect against cellular damage are: glutathione, ubiquinone, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), and alpha lipoic acid. Antioxidants work by different mechanisms to stop or neutralize damage. Out of the five antioxidants found in the body only vitamins C and E have been proven to get into skin. Additionally, there are a few plant antioxidants known to work in skin.

What’s a free radical?

Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons, causing them to be unstable and highly chemically reactive. These unstable molecules are generated by UV rays, infrared radiation, pollution, and lifestyle factors like alcohol and cigarette smoke. Inside the skin, free radicals damage cells, their DNA, and other vital cellular components. Over time, free radical damage leads to visible signs of accelerated skin aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, discoloration, and even skin cancer.

While sunscreen is the first line of defense and essential for protecting skin’s surface from the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays, sunscreen filters only protect skin from up to 55% of free radicals*. Topical antioxidants work in skin to neutralize free radicals and protect against UV damage. Incorporating a topical antioxidant and sunscreen into a daily skincare regimen provides comprehensive protection from environmental damage.

The SkinCeuticals Difference

A topical vitamin C antioxidant must penetrate skin to be effective. This is dependent on three factors: The form of vitamin C used, the concentration, and the pH of the solution.

In the years since the patent, each subsequent antioxidant generation has been subjected to rigorous clinical studies—and the results are clear: SkinCeuticals topical antioxidants neutralize free radicals caused by solar radiation and other environmental factors for inside protection, while synthesizing collagen production for outside correction.

The three fundamental skin care elements — Prevention Protection & Correction

Fundamental Elements

In order to maintain and improve the health and appearance of skin, a proper skincare regimen is essential. Although the specific products depend on skin type and skin conditions, every effective regimen must include three fundamental elements — Prevention, Protection, and Correction.

Prevention

To “Prevent” accelerated skin aging and skin cancer, it’s imperative to use a daily topical antioxidant. This targeted range of products prevents skin damage by neutralizing the free radicals generated by UV rays, infrared radiation, and other environmental factors like pollution, alcohol consumption, and cigarette smoke.

Even the best broad spectrum sunscreen can only block up to 55% of the damaging free radicals generated by UV exposure, but SkinCeuticals antioxidants are specially designed and clinically proven to provide the most advanced protection from environmental aging. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and sunscreens provide ultimate protection by preventing the visible signs of photoaging and promoting optimal skin health.

Protection

Photo damage created by the sun is the number-one cause of accelerated skin aging and skin cancer. In order to prevent this damage, it’s essential to “Protect” skin with sunscreen. SkinCeuticals offers a full range of broad spectrum sunscreens designed for different skin types, conditions, and lifestyles in order to shield skin from UV rays.

The SkinCeuticals line of sunscreens provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Formulated with Z-COTE® transparent zinc oxide, skin is protected from the entire spectrum of damaging UV rays, not just sunburn. Unlike the pasty, white zinc oxide sunscreens of the past, SkinCeuticals sunscreens are formulated with cosmetically elegant textures.

Correction

To minimize lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and other visible effects of past damage, SkinCeuticals offers products designed to “Correct”. These potent skincare products are formulated with powerful ingredients and advanced technologies to restore a healthier, younger-looking complexion.

SkinCeuticals corrective products combine anti-aging, lightening, and exfoliating ingredients to help rehabilitate the skin, restoring a healthier and more youthful appearance. Our active ingredients and advanced technologies correct fine lines, wrinkles, discolorations, acne, and more. Whether you’re concerned about wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, redness or all of the above, SkinCeuticals corrective products are formulated to exfoliate, repair, and rejuvenate the skin. Our range of creams, serums, masques, and targeted treatments for the delicate eye and lip areas have been clinically tested and shown to work synergistically with the rest of your SkinCeuticals regimen to provide optimal results.

Skin Types

The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it serves as a protective barrier. Its health and surface appearance are determined by environmental factors as well as the function of the components that comprise the layers below.

Normal Skin

Normal Skin

Normal skin is hydrated, tends to be clear and even-toned. Normal skin tolerates exfoliation and more aggressive skincare ingredients.

Oily Skin

Oily Skin

Oily skin is caused by overactive oil glands. A shiny appearance, enlarged pores, and acne are primary concerns.

Dry Skin

Dry Skin

Dry skin experiences flaking, itching, and dullness. Dry skin does not produce enough oil. Cold weather and harsh conditions make symptoms worse.

Combination Skin

Combination Skin

Combination skin is dry in some areas and oily in others. Oily skin is often seen in the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin).

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin reacts to products or environment with redness and itching. Sensitive skin is often experienced from birth.

Skin Conditions

The SkinCeuticals formulas are designed to improve skin health and repair damage that causes specific skin conditions and visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and hyperpigmentation. These products offer a bridge between prescription-based products and over-the-counter cosmetics – and they are backed by medically accepted science that proves their efficacy.

Ageing Skin

Ageing Skin

Dry skin and wrinkles are caused by sun exposure and decreased oil production. Signs include enlarged pores, loss of elasticity, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

Acne

Acne

Excess oil and excessive cell production lead to breakouts. Acne includes blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, and nodules.

Hyper Pigmentation

Hyper Pigmentation

Excess pigment production leads to spots and uneven skin tone. Sun exposure is the primary cause of pigment changes. Hormone-induced hyperpigmentation causes dark patches on the forehead and cheeks. Past acne and other trauma may result in dark spots.

Rosacea

Rosacea

Rosacea causes persistent blushing and flushing. Rosacea may lead to broken blood vessels and pimple-like lesions on the cheeks and nose.

Dehydrated

Dehydrated

Dehydrated skin is rough, itchy, and flaky. Dehydrated skin does not maintain proper levels of hydration. Lack of moisture makes wrinkles more visible.

Sensitised Skin

Sensitised Skin

Sensitized skin is red, inflamed, and itchy. Harsh ingredients can sensitize the skin. In-office clinical procedures can create sensitized skin

FAQ

What does an antioxidant do for my skin?

Antioxidants provide protection from free radicals that cause damage deep within the skin. Unlike sunscreens that protect skin from UV rays, antioxidants prevent skin damage caused by other environmental aggressors such as infrared radiation, pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol, and more. SkinCeuticals antioxidants have also been proven to reverse skin damage, including fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

What in-office SkinCeuticals Professional procedures are offered?

SkinCeuticals offers a range of clinical-grade professional peels and facial treatments performed by SkinCeuticals skincare professionals in doctors’ offices and medical spas.
