The Science behind Sapelo

Experience the gentle nourishment and proven anti-aging benefits of Sapelo Skin Care products. With a revolutionary approach to modern medical grade skincare, Sapelo’s philosophy is to work with the skin’s natural ability to heal, without initially wounding it.

Developed under the guidance of two board-certified physicians and a veteran cosmetic scientist, each of Sapelo’s 11 offerings is manufactured in small batches in Savannah, Georgia, under the watchful eye of its founders. Stephanie Duttenhaver and Cindy Edwards turned to their native Georgia coast for the inspiration behind their boutique line of products. 

Understanding that invasive procedures trigger skin renewal by first damaging the underlying dermal layers, Stephanie and Cindy wanted a gentler approach. Sapelo Skin Care products replicate the body’s natural immune system response, without injuring it, so aging skin can begin healing itself, immediately upon application. 

Healing & Rejuvenation

At Sapelo, we acknowledge the short-term improvement to skin after injurous procedues and acids, and we embrace the body's natural ability to repair. Our unique technology embraces this capacity for rejuvenation without first damaging our delicate complexions.

Sapelo is the only skin care system that accurately replicates the body’s immune response and works in harmony with the body’s regenerative power.

Our products infuse the same bioactive peptides, vitamins, minerals, and other healing molecules, which are produced by our immune system in response to injury. Skin is daily stimulated to gently renew. And, for those women who chose to continue dermabrasion, micro-needling or chemical peels, Sapelo Skin Care is the perfect daily ritual to gently prolong the rejuvenating benefits.

Gentle Skin Repair

A bioactive formula to heal damaged skin

Simple, natural & restorative skin care System

step one

Our Renewing Serum floods the skin with hydration, opening channels between the cells to quickly deliver a deeply penetrating combination of essential nutrients, vitamins, amino acids, hyaluronic acids (4%), minerals and plant-based stem cells. The serum soaks the skin to help repair skin and prepare for the next step.

STEP two

Our Rejuvenating Cream is formulated with 5 bioactive peptides that work together to replicate the immune system response, instantly boosting the skin's ability to rejuvenate. A single application works to promote increased collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, resulting in increased skin cell density and health.
