25 Years of Product Innovation

25 Years of Targeted Solutions

25 Years of Proven Results

For 25 years, PCA SKIN has been involved in skin health education and a trusted innovator in the development of highly effective professional treatments and daily care products. PCA SKIN’s commitment to keeping physicians and licensed skin care professionals knowledgeable about the latest in skin science is integral to their company mission.

The company strives to improve people’s lives by providing results-oriented skincare solutions that are backed by science tailored to each person’s unique skin concerns.

Formulating products that improve the health of your skin is a cornerstone of PCA SKIN. Ingredients are hand selected for biocompatibility in conjunction with best-in-class support and delivery vehicles to ensure optimum results. Daily care and professional treatment products are developed to work together in customized regimens that deliver healthy, beautiful, younger-looking skin and are tested in clinical trials with patients through medical practices.

A deep respect for human health, animals and the environment plays an integral role in researching and developing each skincare innovation. This is why all PCA SKIN products are not tested on animals and are free of synthetic dyes and fragrances, mineral oil, petrolatum, lanolin and phthalates.

Acknowledged in prominent medical textbooks as the originator of modified and enhanced Jessner’s chemical peel formulations, PCA SKIN’s problem-solution skincare addresses all four major concerns: acne, visible aging, sensitive skin and discoloration.

Treatments and products are available through licensed skin health professionals that have been trained and certified by PCA SKIN in their use.

PCA SKIN is led by beauty industry pioneer Michael Larrain. Larrain joined PCA SKIN as Chief Executive Officer in 2015 after more than two decades of leadership with top beauty, health and wellness brands, including L’Oreal, SkinCeuticals and Dermalogica. Larrain’s background in developing and expanding national brands is perfectly suited to augment PCA SKIN’s deep track record of growth and to capitulate the company’s next phase of expansion.

Beginning this month, PCA SKIN is embarking on a new partnership in South Africa with Ascendis Health LTD. Rob Koontz, International Director of PCA SKIN, explained Ascendis was PCA SKIN’s top choice because of “their strong experience with professional skin treatments and stellar reputation for professionalism.”

Ascendis has not only been granted exclusive distribution rights to PCA SKIN, but will also continue PCA SKIN’s longstanding practices of world class professional education and sales support. In addition, Ascendis is collaborating with PCA SKIN to launch their newest formulations to South Africa.
