Before becoming an Esthetician, I had minimal knowledge of how to keep my skin from aging. I got my information form the "cosmetic counters" in the leading department stores and used the best "over the counter" products I knew of.

I had only had one facial which, frankly, I did not care for.

Each day the mirror showed my lack of expertise.

My 3rd Career brought me to skin care - and thank goodness !

I tested products and investigated product lines - traveling to conventions and expositions to meet the manufacturers and traveling to spas to see the results they were getting from their products. I was looking for solid science in anti-aging, no animal testing, no added fragrances or unnecessary chemicals. I tested the feel of the products and researched the results they delivered.

SkinCeuticals met all of the criteria I was searching for. 

My husband and I both use the SkinCeuticals products.     We see the improvement . . . .and so do our friends !



Founded in 1997, SkinCeuticals discovers, develops, and delivers innovative dermatology products that improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. Early in our history, a SkinCeuticals research team helped pioneer the advent of cosmeceuticals with the original topical vitamin C formula that protects skin from premature signs of aging caused by environmental damage. SkinCeuticals continued to lead the industry as one of the first companies to provide scientific evidence to support product benefits -- publishing clinical studies in respected medical journals usually reserved for pharmaceutical research.



Our mission at SkinCeuticals is to improve skin health. Dedicated to this purpose, we make one simple promise -- provide quality products backed by science. Our dedication to developing advanced skincare backed by science has earned us a strong reputation with the medical community worldwide. SkinCeuticals provides complete skincare solutions through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medi-spas, and other skincare professionals in the United States and in over 35 countries worldwide. These experts trust SkinCeuticals to promote skin health -- not trends.


Science Overview

To maintain and improve skin health, an effective skincare regime must contain three fundamental elements -- prevention, protection, and correction. At SkinCeuticals, our product philosophy and educational programs are built around these principles. Our line of advanced skincare products is designed to prevent future damage, protect healthy skin, and correct previous damage. At SkinCeuticals, achieving results means more than restoring youthful, radiant skin -- it means preventing serious skin conditions, like skin cancer.

Our goal at SkinCeuticals is to provide you with advanced skincare backed by scientific evidence. When it comes to the scientific proof behind skincare technology, SkinCeuticals sets the standard in the cosmeceutical industry. We devote countless resources toward research at major medical institutions to support the technology behind our products. Our active ingredients are pharmaceutical grade, and the studies performed on our core products are peer reviewed.
