Antioxidants provide protection from free radicals that cause damage deep within the skin. Unlike sunscreens that protect skin from UV rays, antioxidants prevent skin damage caused by other environmental aggressors such as infrared radiation, pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol, and more. SkinCeuticals antioxidants have also been proven to reverse skin damage, including fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
What is an antioxidant, and why is SkinCeuticals the authority? With four generations of topical antioxidant formulations, 10 patents, and more than 200 studies published in prestigious medical journals, SkinCeuticals is a trailblazer in antioxidant science.
UV rays, infrared radiation, pollution, and lifestyle factors generate damaging free radicals that prematurely age skin. SkinCeuticals antioxidants neutralize these unstable molecules, acting as a second line of defense against photodamage and accelerated skin aging. In addition to preventing damage, SkinCeuticals antioxidants have been proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and hyperpigmentation by neutralizing free radicals and stimulating collagen production.
Skin naturally protects itself with antioxidants; however, as it is bombarded with environmental aggressors, its natural supply is quickly depleted and requires supplemental protection.
With nearly 3 decades of research, SkinCeuticals pioneered the industry in antioxidant technology, developing formulations that protect against the DNA mutations that cause serious skin damage. Over the last 15 years, the SkinCeuticals scientific team has researched 100s of antioxidants, discovering only four get into skin and effectively supplement its natural antioxidant reservoir. These include L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), ferulic acid, and phloretin.
Research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, perform synergistically to provide superior results to any single antioxidant formulation.
Our research began with vitamin C, an antioxidant essential to all plants and animals. After years of development, we were able to combine vitamins C and E, doubling the photoprotection of vitamin C alone.
Our next advancement combined the powerful plant antioxidant, ferulic acid, with the already synergistic benefits of vitamins C and E, again yielding unprecedented results: 8X’s the skin’s natural protection.
The addition of another plant antioxidant, phloretin, defined an entirely new class of protection, known as broad-spectrum antioxidants. This class exhibits broad-range activity to combat the entire range of reactive oxidative species.
Today, SkinCeuticals introduces serum-in-a-gel technology, revolutionizing the texture of high potency topical antioxidants while maintaining the integrity and efficacy of proven serum formulation.
ADVANCED SKINCARE BACKED BY SCIENCE
To maintain and improve skin health, an effective skincare regimen must contain three fundamental elements: Prevention, Protection, and Correction. The SkinCeuticals product philosophy is built around these principles. Designed to prevent future damage, protect healthy skin, and correct previous damage, SkinCeuticals is committed to advanced skincare products that are backed by science.
Ultimate protection from environmental skin damage
Even the best broad spectrum sunscreen can only block up to 55% of the damaging free radicals generated by UV exposure, but SkinCeuticals antioxidants are specially designed and clinically proven to provide the most advanced protection from environmental aging. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and sunscreens provide ultimate protection by preventing the visible signs of photoaging and promoting optimal skin health.
Effective protection against photoaging
The SkinCeuticals line of sunscreens provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Formulated with Z-COTE® transparent zinc oxide, skin is protected from the entire spectrum of damaging UV rays, not just sunburn. Unlike the pasty, white zinc oxide sunscreens of the past, SkinCeuticals sunscreens are formulated with cosmetically elegant textures.
TARGETED TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC SKIN CONCERNS
Whether you’re concerned about wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, redness or all of the above, SkinCeuticals’ corrective products are formulated to exfoliate, repair and rejuvenate the skin. Our range of creams, serums, masques and targeted treatments for the delicate eye and lip areas have been clinically tested and shown to work synergistically with the rest of your SkinCeuticals regimen to provide optimal results.
