Behind The Brand: SkinCeuticals

Date of Birth: 1994

Founder: Dr Sheldon Pinnell, Alden Pinnell and Russell Moon

History: Russell Moon, along with Alden Pinnell and renowned American scientist Dr Sheldon Pinnell launched SkinCeuticals in 1994 with the aim of creating advanced skincare backed by science. Dr Pinnell, along with an expert research team, conducted pivotal research on topical antioxidants. They understood and demonstrated that certain combinations of antioxidants in specific concentrations could protect skin from damage caused by sunlight and pollution, resulting in oxidative stress. With this knowledge, Pinnell helped pioneer the advent of cosmeceuticals with the original topical vitamin C formula that protects skin from premature signs of ageing caused by environmental damage. After this success, SkinCeuticals grew from strength to strength, becoming the amazing, results-driven brand we know today.

SkinCeuticals was acquired by L’Oreal in 2005.
