They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder – and if that is the case, then we like to make sure that the beholder has the best to look at!
Founded in 1994 in the USA by Dr. Sheldon Pinnell, Skinceuticals have since continued to pave the way with breakthroughs that have changed the face of skin science. Their products are formulated to not only correct the signs of aging, but also to protect healthy skin, and prevent future damage.
Their mission is simple – to improve skin health, and this they do by providing advanced skincare backed by science, science that is born from decades of skin cancer research that led to pivotal breakthroughs in antioxidants, and their high potency formulas are concentrated in pure actives and proven to penetrate optimally into skin.
They have a vast range of products available, ranging from masques, toners, retinol creams for all skin types, as well as conditions. We recently tried out their Phloretin CF® which is a Vitamin C serum for neutralizing damaging free radicals and restoring a brighter, more radiant, even complexion.
Phloretin CF features a patented synergistic combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid to for enhanced protection against atmospheric skin aging – environmental damage and premature signs of aging caused by free radicals from UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA), and ozone pollution (O3). In addition to antioxidant protective benefits, improves the appearance of discoloration, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.
We like that this product offers advanced environmental protection by neutralizing damaging free radicals, as well as improving the appearance of discoloration to improve overall skin tone, especially those of us with freckles – as often as one ages the freckles can change colour and leave one looking slightly ‘mottled’.
We noticed a visible normalising of colour during the several weeks that we used the Phloretin CF, and the fact that the range is not only paraben free, but also fragrance and dye free is a huge plus. It can also be used on normal, oily and combo skins as well.
You will find Skinceuticals skincare in the rooms of dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and medi-spas for daily homecare and to complement aesthetic procedures.
