Skinuva™ Scar FAQ

Is Skinuva™ patented?

Skinuva™ is now fully patented. We use a patented formula for our next generation scar cream, Skinuva™

What are the ingredients?

Skinuva™ Scar contains a proprietary set of ingredients, including selective Growth Factors which have been shown to mimic scarless fetal healing. These ingredients have been shown to improve the appearance of scars through peer-reviewed medical literature.

INGREDIENTS: Water/Aqua/Eau, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, PPG-12/SMDI Copolymer, Ethoxydiglycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Centella Asiatica Extract, sh-Polypeptide-5, sh-Oligopeptide- 1, sh-Polypeptide- 1, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Does Skinuva™ Scar have SPF?

We have not included SPF in our formula.  SPF is a thick chemical that can be a barrier to our ingredients working synergistically together in order improve the appearance of the scars. We believe our unique formulation using selective Growth Factors and our natural ingredients allow Skinuva™ Scar to perfom so well and better than silicone cream alone.

However, SPF can be applied on top of Skinuva™ Scar without affecting the healing process. We have specifically formulated a scar cream that allows the user to safely apply sunblock to those scars that are visible to the outside world on top of Skinuva™ Scar after its application.

Are Growth Factors safe?

We use medical grade synthetic Growth Factors that are made in a sterile fashion in a laboratory. Our Growth Factors are not human, stem-cell, or plant derived. There is adequate peer-reviewed medical literature evidence to support the safety and efficacy of Growth Factors in treating skin conditions and anti-aging. Growth factors have been routinely included in many high-end skin care lines over the past 15 years, with no issues of long term complications or adverse reactions.

Was any animal testing done in developing and testing Skinuva™ Scar?

We did not perform animal testing in our clinical development and testing stages of Skinuva™ Scar. Skinuva™ Scar is 100% cruelty-free.

What makes Skinuva™ Scar so unique as a scar cream?

Skinuva™ Scar is a physician designed and clinically tested scar cream that uses highly selective Growth Factors within a silicone cream matrix to help improve the appearance of scars. Skinuva’s rigorous clinical studies have shown that Skinuva™ Scar improves the appearance of scars nearly two-times better when compared to silicone cream.

Unlike other scar creams on the market, Skinuva™ Scar is the only one that uses selective Growth Factors and other ingredients that have been shown to help improve the appearance of scars using peer-reviewed medical literature.

How often do I apply Skinuva™ Scar?

In order to see optimal results, Skinuva™ is to be applied twice a day for 3-6 months.

When can I begin using Skinuva™ Scar?

Typically, a patient can begin to use Skinuva™ 2-3 weeks post procedure, or after the incision site has begun to scab over. However, it is always best to consult with your doctor before beginning use.
