Scottsdale, Arizona — August 10, 2020 — PCA SKIN®, a leader in chemical peel treatments and highly effective daily skincare products, wants you to expect more from your antioxidant.
The brand has released data from new scientific studies evaluating formula stability, ingredient penetration, and photoaging protection of their C&E Advanced antioxidant product. Results prove the product’s significant performance against a leading competitor’s Vitamin C formula.
Furthermore, in a clinical study conducted by an independent dermatologist, C&E Advanced was proven to show a significant improvement in brightness, evenness, fine lines and overall global facial appearance across a range of Fitzpatrick types.
PCA SKIN C&E Advanced is the industry’s first and only product to pair maximum concentrations of pure vitamins C and E in a waterless formula with added antioxidants, making this combination the key to the perfect antioxidant corrective.
“At PCA SKIN, for over 30 years we have brought to the market technologically superior products which truly transform skin health. Our scientist created this unique anhydrous formula to ensure its stability and hence the most potent Vitamin C & E available on the market,” said PCA SKIN Chief Executive Officer, Joanna Zucker.
New scientific research for PCA SKIN C&E Advanced was conducted at the Colgate Palmolive Technology Center in Piscataway, New Jersey as well as in partnership with TRI Princeton.
“As a part of the Colgate-Palmolive family, we are now able to demonstrate our superiority with in-depth scientific research and evidence. This is the first of many such scientific studies that will help substantiate the superior efficacy and science behind our products,” states PCA SKIN Chief Marketing Officer, Anish Agarwal.
