HALIFAX, NS --(Marketwired - January 20, 2016) -

  • Skin barrier health is at the heart of our new Healthy Skin Face Collection. This collection is clinically proven to replace essential skin lipids with our Healthy Skin Lipid Complex TM -- leaving skin plump, glowing and healthy.
  • In a clinical study, 100% of subjects agreed their skin looked and felt healthier after using the complete regimen for 28 days.

Healthy skin starts with a healthy skin barrier -- no matter what age. Skinfix Inc.,the expert in healthy skin, is helping women and men everywhere get smoother and more vibrant skin by nourishing the skin barrier with our new Healthy Skin Face Collection, now available exclusively at Ulta Beauty (NASDAQ: ULTA).

The Skinfix Healthy Skin Face Collection is dermatologist recommended and formulated with a proprietary Healthy Skin Lipid Complex™, which is clinically proven to keep the skin barrier healthy -- leaving it plump and vibrant. In a 28 day dermatologist-led, clinical study of the Skinfix Healthy Skin Face Regimen, 96% of subjects showed significant improvement in softness and smoothness; 93% showed a significant improvement in radiance. The collection is priced between $14.99 - $29.99 and includes: Foaming Oil Cleanser, Moisture Boost Serum, Hydrating Lotion, Nourishing Cream and Brightening Eye Cream. Ulta Beauty will also carry Skinfix's Healthy Bodycare Regimen ($4.99 - $14.99), which uses natural ingredients to soften dry skin including: award winning Skinfix Daily Lotion, award winning Skinfix Ultra Rich Hand Cream, Skinfix Cleansing Oil Wash, Skinfix Ultra Rich Body Butterand Skinfix Lip Repair Balm.

Exposure to harsh elements, pollutants as well as cleansing with harsh chemicals can break down the skin barrier, leaving skin dull, damaged and dehydrated. Skinfix's Healthy Skin Lipid Complex™, natural extracts, botanical proteins and peptides help to leave skin healthy and luminous. The collection comes in a range of hydration levels and textures, allowing the consumer to tailor their skincare routine to meet their needs as they change through the seasons. Our packaging reflects the latest design and technology from South Korea. Double-walled, airless bottles and jars keep the formulas fresh and hygienic and the bottle design is inspired by South Korean pottery.

"At Skinfix, we like to shake things up and challenge the status quo. Since launching in the U.S. one year ago, our bodycare regimens focusing on healthy skin have become cult favorites," says Amy Gordinier-Regan, President of Skinfix. "We are excited to continue our U.S. expansion and to partner with Ulta Beauty to bring our exclusive Healthy Skin Face and Bodycare Collections to a new beauty consumer."

"The Skinfix line and exclusive facial collection are a welcome addition to our assortment at Ulta Beauty," says Julie Tomasi, Senior Vice President of Merchandising at Ulta Beauty. "Skinfix's focus on overall skin health and natural, yet effective skincare collections are tapping into a universal desire for healthy skin that we know our guests will love."

The Skinfix Healthy Face collection is dermatologist recommended, allergy tested and good for all skin types. The collection does not include parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, gluten, dairy, synthetic fragrances or dyes.

"The key to beautiful skin starts with a healthy skin barrier," says Francine Krenicki, SVP of Product Development at Skinfix. "In a lipid analysis clinical study run by the University of Iowa we've proven that the Skinfix Facial Regimen improves the quality and quantity of lipids in the skin barrier by 23.6% after 4 weeks -- resulting in smooth, plump, healthy and radiant skin."

Skinfix has been healing and nourishing skin with the best natural ingredients for over a century. Today, Skinfix has built on this original skin healing balm and now has luxurious, efficacious, natural skincare collection from head to toe for the whole family. Available exclusively at Ulta Beauty, the Skinfix Healthy Skin Face Collection is priced from $14.99 - $24.99 and sold at Ulta Beauty, Ulta.com and Skinfix.com.
