THE THREE FUNDAMENTALS
Prevent, Correct, Protect
SkinCeuticals ‘Prevent, Correct, Protect’ pillars represent the three fundamentals that inform all its formulas, based on the premise that any effective skincare regimen must contain all three elements. The brand’s vast range of science-backed products prevent future signs of ageing with antioxidants; correct visible skin concerns with retinols; and protect the skin from UVA/UVB rays with sunscreen. In line with this integrated skincare approach, several SkinCeuticals products can be used as complements to clinical in-office procedures and professional treatments. Underlining the brand’s belief that the best results are integrated, SkinCeuticals’ portfolio enables users to enhance their aesthetic treatments with advanced homecare regimens — the optimum recipe to qualitatively transforming the skin.
Cleanse and Tone
SkinCeuticals Cleansers and Toners have been formulated to meet the exacting standards of skincare professionals. Designed to be the perfect base for cosmeceutical treatments, the high-concentration, problem-solving formulas blend active ingredients with cleansing agents to lift oils and impurities while addressing different skin concerns. SkinCeuticals’ cleansing and toning range comprises the Blemish + Age Toner, and Blemish + Age Cleanser Gel which are designed for ageing, oily and breakout prone skin. The Equalizing Toner balances and refreshes the skin and Gentle Cleanser efficiently removes impurities and face and eye makeup. The Glycolic Renewal Cleanser Gel, formulated with a high-concentration of glycolic acid, exfoliates the skin to deliver a clear and bright complexion; while the Replenishing Cleanser cleans and maintains the skin’s moisture level. The Simply Clean Cleanser provides acid-free exfoliation, while the Soothing Cleanser Foam, made with a high concentration of actives, soothes and calms reactive post-procedure skin.
Prevent: Antioxidant Serums
SkinCeuticals antioxidant serums, which are rich in Vitamin C antioxidants, neutralise oxidative damage and help the skin protect against environmental assaults. Formulated following Dr. Pinnell’s ‘The Duke Parameters’, these formulas are the gold standard for antioxidants to ensure the effective delivery of Vitamin C on the skin. SkinCeuticals’ Serum range comprises the AOC+ Eye Gel, CE Ferulic, Phloretin CF, Phloretin CF Gel, Resveratrol BE, Serum 10 and the new Silymarin CF. The AOX+ Eye Gel offers an innovative serum-in-gel Vitamin C combination antioxidant treatment that protects and rejuvenates the delicate skin around the eye. SkinCeuticals award-winning CE Ferulic Serum delivers advanced environmental protection against atmospheric skin sagging. The Phloretin CF provides broad-range environmental protection against UVA/UVB rays and free radicals and the Phloretin CF Gel provides the same protection in a distinctive serum-in-gel formula. The first-of-its-kind Resveratrol BE is a night-time antioxidant serum designed to boost the skin’s own antioxidant defense system; while the fast-absorbing Serum 10 protects the skin from free radicals and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
All SkinCeuticals formulations undergo rigorous testing to ensure maximum safety and efficacy
