SKINCEUTICALS, Inc. are pioneers in the field of topical vitamin-C technology and manufacturers of a new generation of skin care products that are scientifically designed to protect and care for the body's largest organ, the skin. Unlike conventional "feel good" cosmetic and skin care products, SKINCEUTICALS is an advanced line of vitamin therapy treatments and sun protection products created by a team of leading dermatologists and scientists, including Sheldon R. Pinnell, M.D., The J. Lamar Callaway Professor of Dermatology at Duke University, and Mostafa M. Omar, Ph.D., Professor of Pharmacognosy at The University of Rhode Island. SKINCEUTICALS products are backed by state-of-the-art medical research, and are distributed through thousands of dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and licensed skin care professionals in the United States and abroad.
SKINCEUTICALS products are formulated with the highest quality, scientifically proven ingredients, including vitamins, botanicals and plant extracts, such as oil of evening primrose, chamomile, aloe vera, linden, and algae extract; anti-oxidant vitamins Beta A, C, and E; vitamins K and P; amino acids and proteins, and all natural blends of hydroxy acids, including glycolic, malic, citric, tartaric, and lactic acids.
While SKINCEUTICALS is best known for their topical vitamin-C skin products, which feature the Duke patented technology for L-ascorbic acid at a low pH, the company also offers a full line of quality skin care products, including three state-of-the-art sun protection products, a collection of botanically-enriched moisture enhancers and moisturizers, and a full collection of hydroxy acid cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and treatments -- all featuring a unique blend of five hydroxy acids.
What sets SKINCEUTICALS products apart from the competition is the science behind them. For example, scientific research shows that vitamin-C helps stimulate the production of collagen, the skin's major structural protein, and that it offers photoprotective qualities. While SKINCEUTICALS Topical Vitamin-C products were developed to protect skin from environmental damage, added benefits include helping the skin to appear firmer, smoother and younger looking while visibly improving skin clarity, tone and texture.
The entire SKINCEUTICALS line is available through a network of dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and licensed skin care professionals in the United States and abroad.
