The Antioxidant Authority

Anti-oxidants are essential to provide the second line of defence against UV protection, for skin to remain at its optimum health.

As the Antioxidant Authority, SkinCeuticals sets the industry standard for the most effective and potent formulas with over 30 years of research contributing to the range of powerful antioxidant products.

SkinCeuticals has a singular mission: to improve skin health. Dedicated to this purpose, they make one simple promise – to provide advanced skincare backed by science.

At the heart of every SkinCeuticals regime are the three cornerstone pillars designed to prevent future damage, protect healthy skin and correct signs of previous damage.

Proven to prevent skin from environmental damage, you need to protect it with a daily UVA and UVB sunscreen, SkinCeuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 provides your skin with the shield it needs.

1. PREVENT with SkinCeuticals AOX+ Eye Gel:

SkinCeuticals AOX Eye Gel RRP $142

The skin around the eyes is one of the first areas to show signs of accelerated ageing due to unique biological traits which make it less resistant to UV radiation and other environmental insults. Therefore, a daily antioxidant optimized for the anatomy of under-eye skin is needed to defend this delicate area from constant exposure to environmental aggressors.

With a renowned vitamin C technology, SkinCeuticals breakthrough serum-in-a-gel contains a precise and synergistic antioxidant combination of Phloretin, L-ascorbic Acid and Ferulic Acid.

The combination of ingredients help to prevent premature signs of ageing to the eye area from oxidative stress, while targeted actives revive under-eye skin and reduce the appearance of puffiness.

A state-of-the-art gel enables the proven antioxidant trio to be formulated in solution at an acidic pH within an open matrix delivery system for maximum penetration and efficacy.
