NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SkinCeuticals, a leader in advanced skincare backed by science, is pleased to announce that they have won three 2013 Allure Best of Beauty Awards for Phloretin CF Gel, Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 and Advanced Pigment Corrector. Allure's Best of Beauty Awards identifies the most effective and innovative products in the marketplace through rigorous testing of tens of thousands of products by Allure editors and consultation with experts, such as dermatologists, makeup artists, hairstylists, and cosmetic chemists. Allure's Best of Beauty Awards are distinctive from other such editorial endorsements in that editors test products from the entire market and not just those from brands that advertise.
Known as the antioxidant authority, SkinCeuticals' line of potent, efficacious antioxidant serums has won 12 of the brand's 17 Allure Best of Beauty Awards since 1999. These prestigious honors, along with clinical studies and published peer-reviewed journals, have helped further cement SkinCeuticals as a leader in the cosmeceutical and anti-aging industries.
This year, SkinCeuticals' award winners span the brand's full "Prevent. Protect. Correct" portfolio and include new and cult favorite products. "We are thrilled to see that Allure magazine recognizes SkinCeuticals products from each of the categories that we believe are important to overall skin health. It is our philosophy that an effective skincare regimen must incorporate products that not only correct existing skin issues but also prevent and protect against future damage. Through the years, Allure has been a huge advocate for our antioxidant offerings, and this year we are especially excited that the Allure team also acknowledged our protective and corrective offerings by highlighting Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 as the best facial sunscreen and Advanced Pigment Corrector as a beauty breakthrough," Brenda Wu, VP of US Marketing, Public & Medical Relations.
Always on the forefront of innovation, SkinCeuticals has been given the honor of winning an Allure
"Big Breakthrough" award for a second year in a row. This notable category acknowledges game-changing products that break beauty industry standards. Advanced Pigment Corrector, which launched last month, was selected for its ability to not only remove stubborn pigmentation but also prevent its reoccurrence. This first-of-its-kind hyperpigmentation treatment contains medical skincare-grade technology with a blend of unique actives including Ellagic Acid which blocks melanin transfer and Yeast Extract which enhances skin's resistance to new pigmentation. Boston dermatologist, Dr. Ranella Hirsch, was impressed by both the formula and extensive testing, saying, "I'm pleased SkinCeuticals tested their ingredients against a blend of hydroquinone and retinol, which is the way most doctors treat dark spots now. Even more importantly, [Advanced Pigment Corrector] is doing something new by decreasing the likelihood of a dark spot returning. For anyone who's been treating hyperpigmentation for a long time, that's an exciting development."
