Research and innovation are at the core of the SkinCeuticals mission, and our dedication to science has established the brand as a leader in the advanced skincare arena. The company’s founding was the direct result of groundbreaking research. SkinCeuticals continues to pioneer next-generation products that will optimise the healthy look and beauty of the skin—and contribute to the innovation in skincare for years to come.
As one of the most well respected doctors and skin scientists of our time, Dr. Sheldon Pinnell has won countless awards and accolades. Among his key recognitions:
With nearly 40 years of experience researching and developing technologies that help to protect against the appearance of signs of accelerated skin ageing, Dr. Pinnell’s work established SkinCeuticals as a leader in scientifically validated skincare. SkinCeuticals is committed to cutting-edge skin science, and this is reinforced by strategic relationships within the scientific community. We have established a network of leading scientists from the fields of cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, and biophysics to further understand and research skin ageing, skin types, and skin conditions. With this comprehensive knowledge of the skin, SkinCeuticals continues to raise the skincare bar and maintain its position as a front-runner in the skincare industry.
At SkinCeuticals, we discover, develop, and deliver innovative skincare products that help to improve the overall healthy appearance of the skin. We subject our active ingredients and final formulations to rigorous clinical studies in order to obtain scientifically validated proof of their product efficacy -reinforcing our commitment to provide advanced skincare backed by science.
For SkinCeuticals, one study is never enough. Some studies only look at one or two ingredients in a formulation and some studies evaluate the final formulation. Some studies are performed in-vitro, and some in-vivo,on real, live skin.
At SkinCeuticals, we hold our clinical studies to the highest dermatological standards, with dermatologists overseeing our testing. We often perform biomarker studies to assess a final formulation’s action within the skin, as well as evaluate a products efficacy on people under normal conditions of use. As a result, the findings of our clinical studies translate exactly to how our products perform when used in the real world, on real skin.
Our first clinical study on vitamin C paved our way, and set SkinCeuticals on the path to becoming one of the professional skincare industry’s most well-known product innovators. As one of the first cosmetic brands to publish its research and clinical studies in respected scientific journals, SkinCeuticals continues to pioneer transparency and responsible communication.
SkinCeuticals holds its research, formulations, clinical testing, and product quality to the highest standards. This commitment makes it possible to provide our customers and professional partners with advanced skincare that is backed by science, and proven to optimize healthy looking skin.
