The Full story
SkinCeuticals was founded in 1997 based on revolutionary and substantial research about antioxidants. The effective formulas are composed of pure, active and clinically documented ingredients that, combined, improve skin health. The mission is to improve skin health with advanced and scientifically proven skincare, which has led to SkinCeuticals being recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and skincare specialists all over the world. All products are developed for everyday home use and, also, to improve and prolong the results from aesthetic treatments.
ADVANCED SKINCARE — PREVENT, PROTECT AND CORRECT
To maintain and improve the skin’s health, every effective skincare program needs to do three basic things – prevent, correct and protect. Skinceutical’s advanced skincare products prevent and protect from skin ageing and correct unwanted skin concerns. SkinCeuticals products promise not only to bring radiance to the skin, but to correct and improve the overall skin health.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
The SkinCeuticals product development starts with research and science. SkinCeuticals is part of a scientific network with researchers within cell and molecular biology, chemistry and biophysics that aim to increase the understanding of skin processes like genetic and photo ageing. Through research, innovation, education and media relations, SkinCeuticals is constantly working to promote and improve skin health.
SkinCeuticals cleansers and toners contain active ingredients like fruit acids, plant extracts and cleansing agents that remove impurities and sebum from the skin surface, exfoliate old skin cells and balance the skin pH without drying out or leaving an oily residue.
Research shows that skin ageing is not only due to time passing by. Environmental factors like the sun, smoke and pollution accelerate skin ageing leading to fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. A preventative skincare program may help reducing the effects of these external factors. Studies show that antioxidants neutralize the chemical reactions that appear when the skin is negatively affected by the environment. When antioxidants and sunscreen are co-administered, the skin is optimally protected from premature ageing and skin health is promoted. SkinCeuticals has developed a program with first class antioxidant formulations for all skin types – created to provide the most advanced environmental protection.
Regardless of your life style, your skin will eventually show signs of ageing, like fine lines, wrinkles, pigment spots and lack of firmness. The reasons for this, except from external factors, are breakdown of collagen, a slower cell renewal and moisture loss. A preventative skincare program may reduce the negative effects of these factors. SkinCeuticals corrective products combine strengthening and exfoliating ingredients to maintain a youthful appearance.
SkinCeuticals moisturizing products are developed with thoroghly chosen ingredients to nourish, protect and exfoliate the skin while hydrating. The moisturizers maximize the synergy between the ingredients and secure optimal skin benefits.
SkinCeuticals sunscreens combine very efficient ingredients for a broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. The advanced series protects from UVA rays, responsible for skin ageing. SkinCeuticals offers a broad series of sunscreens for all skin types and lifestyles.

ACCLIMATION OF PRODUCTS
Start by introducing one product at a time when switching to new skincare products. It takes approximately 2-8 weeks for the skin to acclimate to new products, and for you to see an improvement. Initially, you may experience worsening of the skin before it gets better; dryness, impurities and blemishes are common. This cleansing is normal and happens because the skin is wearing off the previous products. If you experience lasting discomfort, stop the treatment and contact one of our estheticians.
General contraindications for products containing active ingredients (e.g. AHA products):
- If you are still using exfoliating products from a different line of products; stop using these 2 weeks prior to starting a new treatment.
- Do not exfoliate on sunburned skin (red/irritated) or newly waxed skin.
- Do not use if your are taking prescription medication for acne.
- If you are using prescription medication for acne e.g. Roacutan, you should stop taking the medicine at least 6 months prior to using products with active ingredients.
- If you are using topical creams to treat acne e.g. Aberela, Retinova, Zorac, Differin, you should stop using the product at least 2-3 months prior to exfoliating your skin.
