SkinCeuticals is the market share leader in physician-dispensed topical skin care products. Their pharmaceutical grade products are only available through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and medispas. These cosmeceuticals bridge the gap between over-the-counter cosmetic and prescription products. They contain higher concentrations of active ingredients unavailable without medical oversight. This strategic partnership allows us to complement our aesthetic procedures with the finest post-treatment correctives, protectants and preventatives. It further promotes our philosophy of combined treatment modalities for optimal results.
SkinCeuticals was founded in 1994 by Dermatologist Sheldon Pinnell, M.D. from Duke University. Dr. Pinnell was a pioneer in advancing skin cancer care and anti-oxidant treatments. Their leading product (C E Ferulic) remains the gold-standard by which all other skin anti-oxidant products are judged. It is vigorously patent protected based on the scientifically proven active ingredient concentrations, combinations, and synergism presented in the optimal delivery system. The scientific orientation of the company has carried over to their entire product line, of now over 50 offerings. SkinCeuticals now holds over many patents on their products. This perspective is what has been so appealing to us at Contour You, where we strive to choose only the finest scientifically proven and FDA approved aesthetic services.
SkinCeuticals was subsequently purchased by L’Oréal in 2005 and operates out of Garland, Texas. It is a part of L’Oréal’s Active Product Division. L’Oréal is the largest cosmetic company in the world, with a Market Capitalization of around $108 billion.
