SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Essentials Renowned for creating a fresh, radiant and healthy complexion, the SkinCeuticals skincare range comprises of an essential toolkit to help your patients achieve perfectly clear skin. In time for the New Year, SkinCeuticals has released a unique product set to address both the internal and external factors that contribute to skin damage and, consequently, premature ageing. The Day/Night Antioxidant kit contains 15ml of Resveratrol B E and either 15ml of CE Ferulic or 15ml of Phloretin CF. The latter two are vitamin C-based serums that are proven to prevent free radical damage sustained throughout the day. Resveratrol B E is SkinCeuticals’ hotly anticipated night-time antioxidant, which has been flying off the shelves since its launch in June. This new antioxidant formulation protects the skin from both internal and external sources of premature ageing. The effective combination of day and night specific antioxidants provides supreme 24-hour protection from skin damage, whilst simultaneously visibly improving the appearance of the skin over a matter of weeks. These superior results make the Day/Night AOX Kit an essential purchase for your clinic.
CE Ferulic The daytime serum, CE Ferulic, is a combination of L-Ascorbic acid, Ferulic Acid, and Vitamin E. The triple antioxidant formulation has been proven to give skin incredibly effective protection from environmental damage and boost the skin’s natural antioxidant defenses. It has also been proven to protect skin from infrared radiation (IR), which accounts for 54% of the total solar energy reaching the skin. Considering that only 7% of total solar energy comes from UVA and UVB rays, protecting the skin from IR is extremely important. A particular type of IR, called IRA, reaches the skin’s dermal layers daily, and is responsible for creating harmful free radicals which diminish the skin’s antioxidant capacity and ultimately result in wrinkles, loss of elasticity and reduced firmness. C E Ferulic neutralises free radical damage, stimulates collagen synthesis and helps correct premature signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles. It leaves skin visibly firmer and more nourished. Phloretin CF Phloretin CF is another daytime antioxidant that contains 2% Phloretin, derived from the bark of apple trees. It is particularly effective at reducing pigmentation. The formulation is a preventative and corrective topical antioxidant that combines the power of Phloretin with 10% Vitamin C and 0.5% Ferulic Acid to diminish hyperpigmentation, improve elasticity, and accelerate cell renewal to retexturise skin. In addition, the antioxidant products all comply with the Duke Antioxidant Patent, which states that effective topical vitamin C formulations must: Contain pure L-Ascorbic acid (derivatives cannot be used by the skin) Contain a high concentration of L-Absorbic acid (between 10% and 20%) Be formulated at an acidic pH of between 2.0 and 3.5
Resveratrol B E Resveratrol B E is SkinCeuticals’ first antioxidant that is specifically designed to work through the night. Over time, skin loses its ability to repair itself due to the onslaught of free radical damage it sustains during the day. This brand new antioxidant formulation will help maintain healthy cell longevity by neutralising this damage and repairing the visible effects of skin ageing whilst you sleep. Resveratrol is a potent antioxidant, building a reputation as the ‘longevity molecule’ over the last decade due to the theory that it works as an intracellular effector to modulate the signalling pathways responsible for age-related deterioration and functional decline. However, it is notoriously difficult to stabilise. For the first time, SkinCeuticals’ advanced research labs have been able to formulate an optimised concentration of pure, stabilised, resveratrol – proven to penetrate skin through a delivery system of hydrotropes. Combined with 0.5% Baicalin and 1% Alpha Tocopherol, Resveratrol B E reduces intracellular inflammation, stabilises cell survival conditions and protects cellular membrane from free radical damage. The winning formula provides 41% more antioxidant protection than any one of the aforementioned antioxidants alone. In a 12-week clinical trial of 55 females, aged between 45-60, Resveratrol BE significantly improved skin radiance, firmness, elasticity and density.
The SkinCeuticals Day/Night AOX kit provides the perfect tools to ensure skin is cared for 24/7. Safe in the knowledge that the SkinCeuticals founder, Dr Sheldon Pinnell, has amassed over 200 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals on topical vitamin C, antioxidants, collagen synthesis and photo-damage, makes the SkinCeuticals’ range one that you can trust. “Our mission at SkinCeuticals is to improve skin health and fight against the major causes of skin ageing. Dedicated to this purpose, we make one simple promise: provide quality products, backed by sciences.”
