Skintifique is an innovative company, dedicated to improving health and well-being through novel scientific, technology and business approaches.

"Bioinspiration" and "Radical simplicity", founding principles at Skintifique

Because nature is an endless source of wisdom and the ideal blueprint for health, Skintifique’s development has been shaped by the principle of “Bioinspiration”.

“It’s about taking a basic idea in nature and improving upon it for your own purposes […] Mother Nature has managed to solve quite a few problems over the years. And so we can use bioinspiration to help us come up with new ideas to tackle tough problems.” Jeffrey Karp, (Skintifique co-founder), Fortune magazine interview, August 2015

In the same way, to bring comfort and relief to the most demanding skin, we clearly need to develop the safest formulations, delivering maximum effectiveness AND tolerability. Instead of trying to chase after the latest exotic addition, Skintifique only uses active ingredients that are proven to be effective and with exceptional safety profiles such as such as glycerin, bisabolol or pure Castor Oil that is expeller-pressed from the seed of Ricinus.

In this pursuit of “essential effectiveness”, Skintifique focuses on quality over quantity with formulations that contain the fewest possible ingredients. That’s “Radical Simplicity”. And so the four products in the Skintifique range contain between five and thirteen ingredients – no more.

Excellence in physico-chemistry and innovation, the secret of Skintifique's success

Behind our minimalist formulations are genuine scientific breakthroughs. Skintifique’s strength lies in how the active ingredients are assembled together and the chemical environment that they are in. The brand’s scientists and collaborators have new technologies to maximize products’ efficacy and achieve properties that aren’t possible in standard formulations.

Skintifique skincare products are based on two unprecedented scientific platforms:

Activifique technology Skintifique


Exceptional technology that enables controlled and gradual release of the active ingredients. When the skin requires moisturizing, eg because it is dry or inflamed, it sends signals to the delivery system containing the active ingredients, which then releases the ingredients. And so the skin’s physiological needs are met instantly and long-lastingly.

Capturifique technology Skintifique


The world’s first technology to protect the skin from metals like Nickel, Chromium, and Cobalt, to which many people are allergic. Similar to UV protection, this new technology captures metal ions on the skin’s surface and prevents them from penetrating the epidermis.

A unique expertise on formulations



Skintifique developed Flamingo, a unique digital platform to research and analyze cosmetic products depending on their ingredients.

Innovative and safe skincare

Thanks to this science, Skintifique has created skincare products that are:

  • multifunctional
  • extremely effective
  • innovative, with unique properties
  • with ultra-safe and pure formulations
