OUR STORY

CANE + AUSTIN began in the upper east side office of board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist, Dr. Craig Austin. After successfully treating countless patients with glycolic acid—the transformative, yet gentle skin care ingredient found in many of his in-office chemical peels—Dr. Austin set out to bring the professional-grade results of glycolic acid peels into his patient’s homes without the professional price tag.

THE “CANE” IN CANE + AUSTIN

Glycolic acid—the star ingredient and inspiration for the brand—is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) derived from cane sugar (hence the cane, in CANE + AUSTIN). Glycolic acid contains the smallest molecules of all AHA’s, allowing it to penetrate the skin deeply and easily, breaking down dead skin cells, sebum and other pore-clogging substances. Glycolic acid is effective enough to treat most skin concerns including acne, blackheads, fine lines, oiliness and dullness and gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types. With continued use, glycolic acid works to improve skin health over time.

PROFESSIONAL RESULTS AT HOME

CANE + AUSTIN products deliver results rivaling expensive in-office treatments and are clinically proven to be successful on men and women with all skin tones and types.

OUR MISSION

CANE + AUSTIN was born from Dr. Austin’s compassion to help all patients improve the health and appearance of their skin. At CANE + AUSTIN, we combine our deep understanding of skin health with scientifically proven ingredients to create products that deliver immediate results in a simple, straightforward routine.

A revelation in at-home skincare

Check out Cane+Austin’s rave reviews below:

“Cane + Austin has crafted a daily pad with glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids to exfoliate and tighten gradually for improved tolerance; when used for 30 days straight, it renders the effect of a 30 percent in-office procedure”
“The easiest exfoliation experience you can do at home.”
 
“It multi-tasked as my foundation and my sunscreen the whole trip….so not only did it not make me break out, but it actually made my skin look better.
“If you haven’t tried a mattifying sunscreen yet, you’re missing out. I tested this one from the dermatology-backed brand Cane + Austin while on vacation in Belize recently. It’s tinted, so it evens out most skin tones, has a matte finish that keeps you from looking like a hot, sweaty mess all day, and it keeps your face protected from damaging UV rays with an SPF of 50. It multi-tasked as my foundation and my sunscreen the whole trip, and it contains ingredients like Green Tea and Vitamin C, so not only did it not make me break out, but it actually made my skin look better.”
Lindsey Unterberger, Beauty Director

“but this little wonder from Cane +Austin has been my secret weapon ever since. It keeps skin clear and glowy. It adds only the fewest seconds to my nighttime routine. I love it so much I once was late to an appointment because I had to convince a perfect stranger to buy it. “
