Sheldon Pinnell - SkinCeuticals

Pinnell found that when the natural form of Vitamin C, known as L-Ascorbic acid was combined wth Ferulic Acid, Phloretin and Vitamin E, it helped to brighten the skin, repair DNA damage and eradicate oxidative stress. This formula worked much more effectively as opposed to it the powered form of Vitamin C, known as D-Ascorbic. L-Absorbic is obtained from fruits and Pinnell found that its optimum 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 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. He found that Oxidation caused 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 in helps to prevent the oxidative effects on the skin, and can significantly help to correct and improve oxidative stress on the skin, in some cases reversing the signs of ageing and DNA damage.

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 they continue to sell their skin care products through a distribution network including spa, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons, and spas. Their headquarters are in Dallas, Texas.
