Clayton-shagal Review


Clayton-Shagal, founded in 1982, is a skin care line that offers at least 10 different treatments. This brand is Canadian, and primarily focuses on anti-aging. The official website refers to these products as being “salon level.” Unlike some brands, Clayton-Shagal encourages a basic three-step daily regimen for skin care, and the treatments they recommend for day and night use are the same. Clayton-Shagal treatments are sold in select salons, as well as on websites such as These products are called 1) Hyprocel Extract ($172.50), Placyderm Cream Medium ($80), Oat Bran Scrub ($42), AHA Scrub ($49.50), Gel Lotion Cleanser ($39), Placyderm Cream Superior ($80), Elastin Gel II ($59), Collagen Gel Plus ($89.50), Elastin Gel I ($89.50) and Hyprocel Gel ($117.50).

There are seven different noted active ingredients offered in Clayton-Shagal skin products. These are Collagen (helps restore collagen levels), Elastin (improves skin firmness), Cytokines, Proteoglycans, Hydrocomplex (helps the skin retain moisture), Placenta (heals the skin) and Hynoderm (helps lock in moisture). A convenient email address is given on the official website to assist consumers with finding Clayton-Shagal dealers. Unfortunately, there do not appear to be any free trial samples of these skin treatments currently available. Basically the Clayton-Shagal line aims to help restore “radiance” to the user’s complexion, while improving elasticity, reducing fine lines and minimizing wrinkles. Customer testimonials are requested, but none are currently offered on the official website.

The Good

  • All Clayton-Shagal skin care products are available in salons and on
  • Clayton-Shagal treatments contain collagen and elastin.
  • There is a convenient three-step skin care regimen offered with Clayton-Shagal.

The Bad

  • There are no customer testimonials provided on the official website for Clayton-Shagal treatments.
  • Clayton-Shagal products are rather expensive, ranging from $39-172.50.
  • Full lists of ingredients for each Clayton-Shagal product are not available on the official website.
  • Clayton-Shagal appears to be primarily geared toward middle-aged women, limiting the product’s potential use base.
  • Free trial samples of Clayton-Shagal skin care treatments are not available via the website.
  • Individuals with allergies may be leery of the unknown ingredients found in Clayton-Shagal products since no full ingredient lists are given.

The Bottom Line

Clayton-Shagal skin care products certainly come across in an interesting and intriguing fashion. Especially the emphasis they place on the incorporation of collagen. As with most other modern skin care brands, Clayton-Shagal focuses primarily on anti-aging. Although their three-step daily regimen may work well for some, the cost of these skin treatments may turn off some potential buyers. In the vast market of skin products, there are numerous others that sell for much less, but offer similar key ingredients.

  1. Hello! I’m Estetician/RN from California. Interested in your Skin care product to work in my Laser/Skin care SPA.
    Please provide me more information with the Price List about.
    Thank you.

  2. this is an excellent product, i am a personal user for more than 8 years and have had great results from a old scar. and if requested the ingredients can be given,also clayton shagal does not advocate the product being sold on sites such as amazon and cannot guarantee these products sold by unauthorized dealers,samples are not given because will not prove to be effective in a sample size as it takes at least a full skin cycle to see any results,

  3. I just bought a fortune worth of Clayton Shagal products. I went for a facial, and the esthectian recommended what she used on my skin during the facial I have a good friend who runs her own salon & also promotes Clayton Shagal. I am going to ask her which products I should use for my skin problems..I’m 46 with oily skin, discoloration, large pores. I am SO curious to see if she will recommend the same ones as the other girl. No matter how well it works, I have not opened anything..I hope they will refund me as I find it WAY to expensive, & shouldn’t have bought it. It was a last minute decision, as I have been looking for some line that will benefit my skin. Any ideas, please let me know. 46 years old, no wrinkles unless I smile, oily in places but now worse since I am not on birth control because lucky me is in menopause at 46!! Dark cirles under eyes, no bags, discoloration, large pores. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

      1. I found a salon that gave wonderful facials at a decent price and they used Clayton Shagel products. I bought the elastin when I left the first time, (I’m 48, oily skin and large pores). The next month I bought the collagen. Used both with a monthly CS facial and in 3 months started to receive compliments on my skin. After 5 months strangers stopped me at work to ask what I’ve done differently as my skin looks amazing! I’m a cherry-picker when it comes to skin care and cosmetics. I find what works and leave what doesn’t. After 6 months of beautiful skin, I left the line (because I get bored and love potions and lotions and Sephora), worst thing I could have done. Within 2 months I see the difference. :(. I only ever used the elastin and the collagen. Both $70-$80 products. I will go back to simple 2 step moisturizing. BTW, I use a different line to wash, remove makeup and I never bother with toner. I hope this helps.

    1. Bovine – Pig However, they do not derive their collagen from pig its from marine products the only source that mimics our lymph and blood. This is a good product well know through out Europe over 30 yrs –

      1. Bovine = cow, not pig. Please know what you’re talking about before speaking. Pork products are not used in skin care lines, although numerous aspects of bovine items are used, as medical grade cosmeceuticals and other medical research/organ replacent. This product is a decent product. Not outstanding, no better or worse than any other cosmetic grade skin care line. It is marketed at a higher price point as it is from another country and touted to be superior. It is not. Do your research, trust your instincts and your skin. Always try before you buy and yes it will take a few weeks to see results. Positive or negative. Good vendors offer trial sizes for this reason or for post-treatment use.

        1. Actually, most collagen is derived from pig. Clayton Shagal collagen is a marine collagen. It is the only collagen that can finds it’s way to the dermis topically. Real medical spas and estheticians that carry the product are trained and are given the product ingredients. Only quality spas with experienced estheticians are offered the product line. If you buy it on Amazon or anywhere else you are buying it from unknown sources and not the distributors.

  4. Have been using Clayton Shagal Collagen Gel Plus II for over a year. Was advised to us it to treat inflammatory rosacea that I had for 18 months and did not respond to anything the docotr prescribed. The rosacea cleared up within 1 week of use and at 58 yrs of age my skin is smooth, firmer with minimal fine lines and few wrinkles(deeper lines). I LOVE this product! I use DHC products for cleaning and toning and for intesnive moisturizing at night along with the collagen Gel Plus.

  5. Bonjour
    Ou puis-je trouver vos produits à NEW YORK gel collagène et crème élastine
    Merci pour votre réponse

  6. I’ve been using Clayton Shagal for the last 10 years…! Love their collagen and elastin gels. As well their gel cleanser sulfate free. As for moisturizers, I use the Idratense and at times the Hynoderm. Such great creams. Once a year, I will treat my skin to the hyprocel gel, serum for my eye contour. Fully worth the investment.

    1. Hey Eva, just wondering where do you buy your Clayton Shagal products from? I find it really difficult to find them anywhere. I’m from Toronto are you based out of the States? do you buy them online? thanks:)

      1. Hi Christina, As it’s a Canadian product, there are probably a few suppliers in Toronto… but I got my CS products from the Old Mill Spa in West Toronto/Etobicoke. Hope that helps!

  7. I have been using CS for a few months now, elastin, collegen, daily cleanser and scrub. Love it. I am in the lower mainland of Vancouver and I got samples from my esthetician after a treatment. So there ARE samples.
