Sheldon Pinnel


Doctor Sheldon Pinnell, the founding scientist, found that when the natural form of Vitamin C, known as L-Ascorbic acid, was combined with Ferulic Acid, Phloretin and Vitamin E, it helped brighten the skin and repair DNA damage as well as eradicate oxidative stress.

This formula worked much more effectively as opposed to it the powdered form of Vitamin C, known as D-Ascorbic. L-Absorbic is obtained from fruits and Pinnell found that its optimal potency sites between 10% and 20% – any higher it is difficult to keep stable and any lower the result on the oxidative stress is minimal.

The History of SkinCeuticals

Founded in 1997, SkinCeuticals was born from decades of research and science. Lead by Doctor Sheldon Pinnell, a range of innovative dermatology products designed to prevent serious skin damage and reduce the signs of ageing was developed. Pinnell researched the degenerative and ageing effect extrinsic factors (such as UV rays, pollution and lifestyle) have on the skin, and the impact that oxidation has on skin calls.

Doctor Pinnell found that Oxidation caused the appearance of skin wrinkling, discolouration, loss of elasticity and in the most extreme for abnormal cell development.  Alongside this, his pioneering research found that Vitamin C helped prevent the oxidative effects on the skin, improve oxidative stress and reverse signs of ageing.

From this, SkinCeuticals high potency formulas that are based on a combination of antioxidants were developed, and are concentrated in pure actives that are proven to penetrate optimally into skin.

In 2005, L’Oreal acquired SkinCeuticals and distributed it to a network of highly luxurious spas, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons. Their headquarters are based in Dallas, Texas.




SkinCeuticals combines the words ‘skin’ and ‘pharmaceuticals’ to create their name. SkinCeuticals is pronounced – ‘skin-sew-ti-cals’.
