THE STORY BEHIND CIRCADIA
Circadia was founded by the world renowned, and globally recognized, Dr. Peter T. Pugliese. Dr. Pugliese was the first physician of his caliber to dedicate decades of research to understanding the skin and its ability to deliver clinical and relevant information on product development. Prior to the launch of Circadia in 2001, Dr. Pugliese spent 30 years developing and manufacturing products for major brands in the industry.
He also conducted the first clinical study on Copper peptide, topical Vitamin E and Beta Glucan, advancing our industry to where we are today. Dr. Pugliese is a world-renowned author of aesthetics textbooks including Advanced Professional Skincare Medical Edition, The Physiology of the Skin editions I, II, III and conducted numerous clinical studies, dedicating his life to the advancements in skin health, formulary achievements and education of skin physiology.
Dr. Pugliese has won nearly every award given by The Society of Cosmetic Chemists, including the highest honor and recognition of the Maison De Navarro Award for his technical contributions to cosmetic chemistry.
Following in his grandfather’s footsteps, Michael Q. Pugliese, L.E. CEO, has become an inspirational leader in product development and has also been recognized as an internationally distinguished educator. He has expanded Circadia’s global reach and distribution into more than 30 countries worldwide.
Circadia professional skincare is based on the skin and body’s natural Circadian rhythms. Chronobiology, the biology of time, is based on the principles of defending skin from damage during the day, and stimulating repair during sleep, and is at the core of our concept. Circadia has been a pioneer in bringing the concept of Circadian rhythms to the health and wellness industry.
We are dedicated to formulating result-driven products combining pure botanicals, stem cells, second-generation vitamins, and innovative peptide technology to achieve optimal skin health and beauty.
Circadia professional skincare brand is based on the skin and body’s natural circadian rhythms. Chronobiology, the science of defending skin from environmental damage during the day, and stimulating internal repair mechanisms during sleep, is at the core of our concept.
CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS & THE SKIN
The human body is governed by the Circadian Clock Genes that regulate everything from digestion, body temperature, pH and your body’s ability to protect and repair. The skin is the largest organ of the body and has direct exposure to UV radiation and environmental toxins, the skin has the ability to program its own circadian rhythms. Skincare professionals should be aware of the time of the day when they make an assessment of the skin or prescribe a specific treatment.
WHAT ARE CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS?
At Circadia, our philosophy of skincare is centered on the body’s circadian rhythms, defending from environmental insult during the day, and stimulating repair mechanisms during sleep. Circadia’s products utilize paraben-free preservative systems, a multitude of cutting-edge ingredient technologies and specialty items for comprehensive treatment of aging skin, pigmentation disorders, acne and rosacea.
Circadia’s formulations combine pure botanicals, stem cell technology, second-generation vitamins, and innovative peptide development to achieve optimal skin health and beauty. The Circadia Collection offers unique treatment options such as chemical peel alternatives, innovative delivery systems and patented ingredient technology exclusive to Circadia resulted in documented performance. Our concept allows us to deliver science and nature in perfect rhythm.
Botanicals are categorized as plant extracts derived from flowers, herbs, nuts and berries. These gifts of Mother Nature are used for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin health benefits. Circadia sources botanicals from around the word and is dedicated to using ECO-Cert Organic Botanicals that are globally recognized for purity.
Let's take a look behind the formulary curtain when a lab creates plant-derived stem cells they first have to wound the plant, this creates totipotent stem cells. Once the stem cells are transferred to a culture they start to produce secondary metabolites in order to protect themselves during rapid cell division. It is the secondary metabolites that have amazing antioxidant and immune support as well as detoxification and fibroblast stimulation.
All matter begins with electrons and protons, the building components of the elements. Proteins start with amino acids. There are 20 essential ones, and a few others, that makeup life’s proteins. When two amino acids are combined, a new chemical called a peptide is formed. Circadia uses four different families of peptides to enhance skin health.
Jane Iredale is the president and founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, a company she founded in 1994 which brought the mineral makeup line Jane Iredale to the aesthetic industry. She was the first to supply this industry with a line of makeup that had skincare benefits.
She was inspired to develop a makeup that was good for the skin by her career in the entertainment industry where she saw actresses and models struggling with the ill-effects of the many kinds of makeup they wore. Her experience in working with women whose careers depended on a clear complexion allowed her to see how skin disorders and sensitivities not only threatened careers but also destroyed self-confidence.
Jane has always thought of makeup as an essential part of a woman's sense of well-being and she wanted to make that easy to achieve. That's why her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer, and sunscreen all in one, and why every product in the line is multi-functional. Her goal is to make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin. Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.
This has had an international resonance. The Jane Iredale brand is carried throughout Australia and world-wide in more than fifty countries.
Jane's success in reaching women of all ages and nationalities is based on the belief that true makeup artistry comes not from trying to make a face conform to the latest fashion trends, but from enhancing the wearer’s natural beauty and, as a result, allowing her personality to shine.
