We love Circ Cell skincare because of its focus on results -- with this line, with this line, seeing is believing. With a cult following of women who have seen a visible change in their skin, Circ-Cell’s absolute dedication to improving the skin on a cellular level is a message we can get behind. These products look and feel amazing, and the science behind their ingredients is impressive. Despite coaching from the “experts” around cutting costs, changing the formulation to ease production or offering the customer a quick fix at the expense of the overall health of the skin, the founder of Circ Cell skincare stays true to the mission of the brand; to provide what is necessary to have the healthiest, happiest skin possible. They’ve also recently partnered with The Nest Foundation to focus on combatting the human trafficking of children. What’s not to love?

Longing for simple, clean living after years in the city, Maya Crothers and her family fell in love with the small mountain town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After moving there from Dallas in 2009, Maya found that caring for her skin became more important that ever, and the new challenges of living in a high mountain climate became the foundation of her skin care line. She draws inspiration for Circ-Cell from the natural beauty of the mountains surrounding her home. Maya has cultivated a small team of experts that share her vision for elegant, luxurious products that deliver results. Launched in 2010, Ms. Crothers has grown the line slowly and with purpose, developing products only when she is inspired by innovative, skin-changing technologies she can’t live without.
Circ-Cell’s name is a hybrid of circle and cellular – denoting a meaningfully rounded approach to cellular skin health. The brand was created to counter what the founders believed was an unhealthy emphasis on exfoliation in the beauty industry. While exfoliation is necessary for beautiful, healthy skin, it seemed that every new product on the market focused only on exfoliation technology. Women were pursuing aggressive professional treatments like deep chemical and laser peels, followed by more exfoliation in their beauty regimen at home through glycolic cleansers, scrubs, fruit acids, and retinoids. After years of forcing cellular turnover, women were left with thin, exhausted skin. In contrast, each Circ-Cell product nurtures and supports the skin on a cellular level. Their formulas work in tandem with the natural phases of the skin’s cellular lifecycle – from the birth of new cells to the natural shedding of cells at their death. The brand is devoted to finding the most promising and innovative technologies available to pursue this mission.
The Vitamin Focus
Obsessed with skin health and essential nutrients, the creatives of Circ Cell have a vitamin focus. The products are perfected to include a slew of minerals and must-have nourishment to soothe, rejuvenate, repair, and smooth skin, without sacrificing natural beauty.
For example, Circ Cell boasts Vitamin C Ampoules that are a unique blend of antioxidants and biopeptides. These combined nutrients work together, and exclusively, to eliminate sun damage and dark spots, while protecting skin cells from further damage. There are three forms of vitamin C in these capsules, each working simultaneously and individually to firm, enhance, enrich, tone, and replenish.
ABO Serum Collection
The ABO Serums are built around a class of ingredients referred to as perfluorocarbons. These are medical-grade gas carriers in liquid form that are so oxygen-rich, a human could continue to breathe if submerged in it. In fact, these gas carriers contain more oxygen than blood does. Because of this, many of the benefits that skin receives from a healthy blood supply can be enhanced through the topical application of the serum. The ABO products have been beloved by beauty editors since the launch of the first product, ABO Rejuvenating Eye Gel. Public response was tremendous so a second serum with added brightening benefits was launched for the face and décolleté.
Extraordinary Face Oils
Traditional facial oils work by resting on top of the skin to retain the moisture underneath. Circ-Cell’s botanical oil blends have supercharged the traditional benefits of facial oils through a cutting-edge oil fermentation process that increases the production essential fatty acids (EFAs) in the oil. Youthful skin is full of plump, hydrated cells. It is the cell’s healthy outer membrane that maintains this healthy state. An effective cell membrane keeps good things in, like water and nutrients, and allow waste products to pass out. It is an EFA’s job to keep the cell membrane functioning. As we age, a decline in EFAs results in unstable membranes that cannot keep their buoyant shape, which in turn leads to sagging, aged skin.
Extraordinary Face Oils not only increase EFAs in the skin, but also contain a patented blend of botanical lipids designed to deliver the skin lipid profile of a healthy 22-year-old.
