Research & Formulation


SkinCeuticals contributed to the rise of cosmeceuticals with the first clinically proven topical vitamin C formulation. Today, we continue to lead the industry by being one of the only companies to provide scientific evidence to support our products’ claims.


At SkinCeuticals, we start with high quality ingredients with proven scientific results. Then, our research and development teams create elegant, functional formulations with optimal concentrations of active ingredients. After extensive testing, our products are manufactured and packaged under highly regulated conditions

  • We use optimised concentrations of active ingredients, formulating our products with the highest concentration necessary to garner results—not more.
  • SkinCeuticals carefully chooses actives that have optimal desired effects in order to limit the number of ingredients and keep our formulations as effective and pure as possible.
  • Our products contain minimal fragrances, dyes, and preservatives, and are dye-free, and paraben-free whenever possible.
  • Our products are designed to be layerable formulas that work together in customisable regimens.
  • SkinCeuticals products are formulated to be non-comedogenic.
  • All SkinCeuticals ingredients and formulations are thoroughly tested under strict safety parameters.


SkinCeuticals products are designed, formulated, and tested for effectiveness. In order to assess a product’s efficacy, three essential criteria should be evaluated:

product efficacy
  • 1. Does the product get into the skin?
  • 2. Does the product have qualifiable action in the skin?
  • 3. Does that action translate to end benefits for the customer?


The SkinCeuticals Five Step Regimen provides a targeted solution for every skin concern. From effective cleansing and toning, to enhanced environmental damage prevention, and broad-spectrum UV sun protection, each element of the regimen is designed to promote healthy, beautiful skin.
