The creators of SkinCeuticals products are serious about one thing and one thing only–ensuring that their customers are taking products scientifically proven to help their skin. With decades spent in skin cancer research, they created a potent formula to aid in anti-aging, to protect healthy skin, and to help prevent skin damage in the future.
Although it was in 1997 that SkinCeuticals first released their products, their formulas had been in the works years before then. It is credited to Dr. Sheldon Pinnell that SkinCeuticals is what it is today. Through his research and all the research that has been conducted since then (and continues to be done), customers can receive top-of-the-line skin care that they can easily apply in the convenience of their own home.
The secret behind SkinCeuticals’ success is their use and exploitation of antioxidants. At its heart, antioxidants have essentially one job–to inhibit the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation damage occurs when molecules lose an electron or electrons. While the body produces antioxidants to keep this damage from occurring, only two, vitamins C and E, have been proven to actually be able to get into the skin.
Oxidation can create free radicals in the body. These free radicals, which are simply molecules with unpaired electrons, roam about the body, causing skin damage (particularly that of accelerated aging). They are among some of the reasons behind wrinkling, laxity, discoloration, and even sometimes skin cancer. Oxidation can occur because of UV rays, pollution, as well as things like alcohol and cigarette smoking.
Antioxidants come in to neutralize these free radicals and spare the skin from this damage. This is where SkinCeuticals comes in. With its careful formulation, they found that to be effective on the skin, antioxidants must have the correct form of vitamin C, the correct concentration, and the proper pH of the solution. The serums created by SkinCeuticals use this particular and carefully honed formula to neutralize free radicals and protect the skin against solar radiation, as well as other damaging factors. In so doing, they aid in improving the skin and maintaining its overall youthful appearance.
