Silymarin CF is a breakthrough vitamin C serum for oily and blemish-prone skin that combines 0.5% silymarin (milk thistle extract), 15% l-ascorbic acid, 0.5% ferulic acid and 0.5% salicylic acid to help prevent oil oxidation that can lead to breakouts, and visible signs of aging. This oil-free formula is clinically demonstrated to reduce oil oxidation by up to 76%, as well as reduce oiliness, refine skin texture, and visibly improve skin clarity and fine lines.

BENEFITS:

  • Provides advanced antioxidant protection from environmental aggressors
  • Helps prevent oil oxidation that can lead to breakouts
  • Reduces oiliness
  • Minimizes pore appearance and refines skin texture
  • Improves skin clarity, radiance, and uneven skin tone
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines

In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products. May be used on the back of the hands. It is normal for vitamin C products to darken after opening due to air and light exposure. The formula will remain effective. Once opened, it is recommended to be used within 3 months of opening.

Complete your regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens provide the most complete protection against visible aging caused by environmental aggressors.

 

In-vivo, Phloretin CF provides a high level of environmental protection against UV-induced oxidative damage when exposed to solar-simulated light.

 

SkinCeuticals research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, provide superior results to each single antioxidant alone.

Phloretin CF is a triple antioxidant cocktail formulation shown to provide powerful environmental protection due to a synergistic combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid. It is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly-potent antioxidant that, by its structure has difficultly to being effectively absorbed on skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent describes the formulation parameters required for effective delivery of vitamin C to skin:

1) Pure l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C);
2) An acidic pH within the 2.0-3.5 pH range and;
3) A concentration between 10%-20%.

SkinCeuticals is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters.

Shield Against Atmospheric Skin Ageing
SkinCeuticals defines atmospheric skin ageing as the visible result of a range of environmental aggressors on skin, including UV, infrared radiation (IRA), and pollution. Ongoing SkinCeuticals research shows that over-exposure to these aggressors may cause visible skin ageing, and topical antioxidants can help prevent the impact to skin.

2% phloretin
Derived from apples and the root bark of fruit trees including apple, pear, and grapefruit, this antioxidant neutralises damaging free radicals, helps improve cell turnover, and improves the appearance of discolouration.

10% L-ascorbic acid
Lauded for its superior antioxidant benefits, this highly potent form of pure vitamin C neutralises damaging free radicals and protects against oxidative stress while providing visible anti-ageing benefits.

0.5% ferulic acid
A plant-based antioxidant, ferulic acid neutralises free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits of phloretin and vitamins C and E.
