Next up in the Glowday Medical Grade Skincare Spotlight series is PCA Skin. So, what makes PCA Skin such a popular brand with practitioners, and what are the main benefits that customers just keep on coming back for? Let’s take a look…
PCA Skin's core values
PCA Skin was founded over the pond in Arizona in 1990, so it’s a bit of a skincare veteran, to be honest. The idea behind PCA Skin came from an aesthetician and it was developed by a dermatologist. What a combination! And this really explains their vision, which is to improve people’s lives by providing results-orientated skincare solutions that are backed by science - they really understand the importance of each individual’s skin health.
The lovely thing about the brand (aside from its superb products) is that it’s grounded on 3 core pillars, which are - product innovation, excellence in education, and unparalleled customer support. Which, let’s face it, are pretty nice pillars to hold any skincare company up.
Innovation in skincare
When it comes to the innovation side of things, PCA Skin is constantly on the ball, working on new treatment options for all skin types and tones, and they really think carefully and holistically about each and every skin concern to make sure they are creating effective products that will give great results. And - get this - annually, an incredible million+ PCA skin peels are performed. Now that’s pretty impressive!
So, how do they get their formulas so bang on? Well, they have their own in-house PhD chemist, who researches, designs and produces. What a superstar!
Only essential skincare ingredients
Other things that make PCA Skin a great option? From their cleansers and toners to their serums, masks, moisturisers and SPFs, this brand’s products don’t contain parabens, fragrances, mineral oils, petrochemicals, lanolin, synthetic dyes or phthalates. And their SPFs are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation. Oh, and the packaging is pretty sleek, too.
