Skintifique is the ambitious project of two leading scientists, Dr. Jacques Delort, an entrepreneur and former medical science researcher, and Dr. Jeffrey Karp, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and MIT. They met through their work and from there grew a friendship based on mutual respect, consolidated by their shared goal to harness scientific discoveries and approaches that improve everyone’s everyday life and health.

Medical, environmental or technological advances… we know that some areas of research require years and years of work before leading to concrete results.

Skintifique quickly expanded and Dr. Jacques Delort and Dr. Jeffrey Karp were joined by an enthusiastic team of brilliant scientists and experts from different backgrounds. They decided to pool their skills and values to make Skintifique a brand that’s always driven by the ambition to innovate and deliver the best possible solutions in well-being and dermatology. It is thanks to the commitment, passion and professionalism of the whole team that Skintifique’s innovation has been possible.

Just two years later came the Skintifique laboratory with the launch of the Protective Cream HPS, the world’s first product to protect skin against metals such as Nickel, Chromium or Cobalt. It was quickly followed by the revolutionary Hydrating Gel Plus HS, whose new and exclusive Activifique technology enables controlled and gradual release of the active ingredients for exceptional ongoing hydration and a tailored response, to the skin’s needs. This promising start for Skintifique continues to drive the development of future exciting products for skincare and medicine.
