Science & Proof: SkinCeuticals research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants when effectively formulated, provide superior results to each single antioxidant formulation.
Phloretin CF is a triple antioxidant cocktail formulation that provides broad-range 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 is, by its structure, difficult to effectively deliver on the 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.
How To Use: In the morning, after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products. It may be used on the back of the hands. It is usual 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 SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad-spectrum sunscreens provide complete protection against visible aging caused by environmental aggressors.
