SkinCeuticals mission: to provide advanced skincare back by science to prevent visible signs of aging, protect healthy skin, and correct the appearance of aging. Used by leading dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide.


SkinCeuticals is the #1 US medical aesthetic skincare brand worldwide*. An early pioneer of cosmeceuticals** in the US, SkinCeuticals innovates critical anti-aging breakthroughs at the forefront of antioxidant technology. Evidence proving skin absorption and antioxidant benefits of our vitamin C formulations is based on the academic research of Dr. Sheldon Pinnell***, a renowned American research dermatologist from Duke University and SkinCeuticals founding scientist. With cutting-edge in-vivo (in live skin) science as the foundation of our existence, SkinCeuticals has been providing advanced skincare to medical professionals since 1997.

The SkinCeuticals skincare regimen philosophy centers on three main pillars:

PREVENT visible signs of aging with high-potency antioxidants by neutralizing damaging free radicals caused by atmospheric aggressors, such as UVA/UVB, infrared (IR-A), and ozone pollution 

PROTECT healthy skin against harmful UVA/UVB rays with high-protection sunscreens

CORRECT the visible signs of existing damage with targeted solutions 

SkinCeuticals believes the key to optimal skin health is a skincare professional, who can customize an at-home regimen with powerful in-office treatments to achieve a visible improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging for an overall healthier, more radiant appearance.
