The idea for Skincode arose from the demand for an anti-aging range that was less expensive than what was currently on the market. To create something more affordable and different from what already existed, Niclas Massalsky spent time at a burns unit in a Swiss hospital where he learnt about CM-Glucan, a medical ingredient used to treat burn patients and babies with eczema. He then worked with dermatologists to find a way to make CM-Glucan the main ingredient in his products.
CM-Glucan is the main ingredient in Skincode’s Essentials line which is also free of preservatives, artificial fragrances, animal derivatives and artificial colours. The key ingredient in the other line, Skincode Exclusive, is the Active Cellular Regenerating Complex, which was created by Skincode to fight against aging at the cellular level.
