Dr. Shinn and her aesthetician at Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa chose to carry the SkinCeuticals line since the company is the industry leader when it comes to antioxidants, especially Vitamin C products.

Additionally, SkinCeuticals devotes countless resources toward research at major medical institutions (including Duke University) to support the technology behind their products and truly brings science to the consumers.

Many skin care products tote research, but these are usually done as white papers and rarely published in peer-reviewed journals.

SkinCeutical differs from others in that these are academic researchers who are backing their products.

Are All Vitamin C Products The Same?  

The Science Supporting SkinCeutical Sunscreen Products

A medical grade topical vitamin C is essential for every skin care regime. Vitamin C (an antioxidant) used topically will not only protect the skin from environmental damage, but will also boost the efficiency of your sunscreen, and help naturally correct the visible signs of aging, as well as naturally correct photo damage. Vitamin C also has anti-inflammatory properties calming redness and irritation in the skin.
