Following 15 years of evolution, revolution and innovation, SkinCeuticals, the market leader in advanced scientific skincare, arrives in South Africa. SkinCeuticals was developed and perfected through decades of research and clinical trials in skin cancer research, the causitive effects of photoageing, and superior antioxidants. The science that helped pioneer the advent of Cosmeceuticals around the world. These revolutionary studies lead to the development of 10 antioxidant patents and 20+ peer reviewed studies on the science behind the brand.
THE ANTIOXIDANT PIONEER
SkinCeuticals was born from science in 1997 due the revolutionary work by Dr Sheldon Pinnell, Professor of Dermatology at Duke University in North Carolina USA. Pinnell was the first to stabilise pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), into a cosmetic solution, at a high concentration and a low pH. This resulted in advanced anti-ageing skincare breakthroughs at the forefront of antioxidant technology. Dr Pinnell is considered amongst his peers as the father of antioxidants.

THREE CORE PRINCIPALS
Oxidation of the skin is one of the leading causes of skin ageing. The best defence against anti-ageing is in the fight against cell oxidation and must encompass:
The skin is designed to prevent substances from entering the body and as a result, the majority of cosmetic ingredients remain on the surface and are ineffectual. SkinCeuticals has discovered that only 4 antioxidants readily enter the skin. They are L-ascorbic Acid (vitamin C); a-tocopherol (vitamin E); Phloretin™ (from the skin of apples and other fruits) and Ferulic Acid™ (derived from bran and oats)
Antioxidants have the ability to neutralise free radicals that are generated as a result of environmental attacks (UV rays, pollution, stress, smoke etc.) and are proven to reinforce the skin’s natural defences against free radicals and prevent photoageing.
SPECIFIC CORRECTIVE TREATMENTS
Repair the skin thanks to powerful formulas enriched with reparative, brightening and exfoliating active ingredients, derived from dermatological practices and formulated in optimal concentrations, proven to penetrate optimally into skin.
SUNSCREENS (Broad-spectrum filters)
Form a barrier against damaging UVA/UVB rays, responsible for the acceleration of natural ageing. These act on the surface of the skin, to provide protection from free radical attacks, in order to complement the action of antioxidants.
DEVELOPED TO IMPROVE THE FOLLOWING SKIN CONDITIONS
- Prematurely aged skin that shows signs of photo-damage
- Deep lines and wrinkles caused by glycation of the skin which disrupts collagen and elastic production, function and breakdown.
- Dark spots and uneven skin tone
- Adult acne with a dual focus on hormonal breakouts and signs of ageing
- Compromised skin following chemical or clinical procedures
- Reduces skin sensitivity and improves the skins natural protection
- Regulates and improves normal skin functioning for day to day use
