The SkinCeuticals mission is to improve the appearance of skin health. Dedicated to this purpose, they make one simple promise- provide advanced skincare backed by science.
To help maintain and improve the appearance of skin health, an effective skincare regime should contain three elements- prevention, correction and protection. Their line of advanced professional skincare products are designed to to help prevent future damage, correct the appearance of visible signs of previous damage and protect healthy skin. At SkinCeuticals, achieving results means not only restoring the appearance of youthful, radiant looking skin- it means helping to prevent the onset of premature signs of ageing.
At SkinCeuticals, the focus on efficacy, formulations are based on optimal concentrations of active ingredients elegantly crafted into functional products – designed, formulated, and tested for effectiveness.
At SkinCeuticals, studies are conducted on commercially available formulations. Other companies may assess the efficacy based on one active ingredient, often at a much higher strength than the concentration found in the final product. With SkinCeuticals, the proof is in the results – both in the lab and on skin.
SkinCeuticals products are clinically proven to perform on their own, but they are also designed to work synergistically with each other – and deliver even greater results when used as part of a customized regimen. SkinCeuticals skincare professionals are extensively trained to create skincare routines that address the unique conditions and challenges of an individual patient’s skin to optimize its health and appearance.
Whereas over the counter products only work on the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis. They can’t penetrate any deeper. These products only contain small amounts of active ingredients, so much that they will have little to no effect on the skin. These products have to be made safely because they are so widely available. So these products may smell and feel good but there isn’t enough active ingredients to make a difference to your skin, they can make your skin look smoother and brighter but only short term.
Cosmetics stay on the skin, Cosmeceuticals penetrate it.
