Our mission is to improve skin health. Dedicated to this purpose, we make one simple promise—to provide advanced skincare backed by science.
Born from decades of skin cancer research that led to pivotal breakthroughs in antioxidants, our high potency formulas are concentrated in pure actives and proven to penetrate optimally into skin. Made in the USA, our clinical skincare is used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and medi-spas for daily homecare and to complement aesthetic procedures. We formulate to correct signs of aging, protect healthy skin, and prevent future damage.
During the early days of his career as a chemist and dermatologist, Dr Sheldon Pinnell came to realise that the skin care products available for his patients weren't doing enough to address their dermatological concerns. He saw a disconnect between the beauty industry and medical science; skin care products were meant to cosmetically enhance the complexion, not work to correct the underlying problems that caused imperfections. As a result, the only effective solutions for Dr Pinnell's patients were prescription medications and clinical interventions.
Determined to give women an alternative to medicinal treatments, Dr Pinnell set out to create his own line of skin care products. Using the latest research available on the subject of dermatological science, he created formulas that contained highly effective, scientific ingredients that were gentle enough to be sold without a physician's prescription. Because his products were a cross between traditional skin care and pharmaceuticals, he named his brand SkinCeuticals when he introduced it to the world in 1997.
