Phloretin CF Gel defies the boundaries of gel formulations using a state-of-the-art gelifier that meets the strict vitamin C parameters established by Duke University research. With daily use, it protects skin from a broad range of reactive molecules and other skin damage. This trusted antioxidant trio also accelerates cell turnover and promotes a brighter, more even complexion.
  • Provides advanced environmental protection against UVA and UVB radiation
  • Diminishes the appearance of hyperpigmentation and helps accelerate cellular turnover to retexture skin
  • Delivers active ingredients with controlled penetration and a light, fresh texture
clinical study
In-vivo, Phloretin CF Gel provided the same high level of environmental protection against UV-induced oxidative damage as Phloretin CF serum when exposed to solar-simulated light.
Containing phloretin, L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and ferulic acid, this protective and corrective serum-in-a-gel provides advanced, environmental protection. The new, state-of-the-art serum-in-a-gel technology allows active ingredients to be suspended in solution at an acidic pH to penetrate skin just like liquid serums.
Innovation 1
Phloretin CF Gel protects against free radical damage to facilitate the skin’s natural repair process and helps accelerate cellular turnover.
Innovation 2
Phloretin CF Gel improves the appearance of skin discolorations and helps radiance and skin tone.
In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 2 pumps of this potent treatment to the face, or 4-5 pumps to face, neck, and chest, avoiding eye area.

It is normal for vitamin C products to darken after opening due to air and light exposure. Any change in color does not affect the product's efficacy.

Dermatologist raved about it! I loved using this in my under sunscreen routine but I wanted to make sure my dermatologist didn't have a better suggestion. When I asked her about it, she raved about it, saying it was one of the best if not THE best there is. Now, I don't go outside without it. I also love how hydrating it is. It goes well under my make up. November 8, 2013
Great product; pump bottle needs improvement I like the product--good texture, goes on smoothly, slightly lightened my hyperpigmented cheek areas, and protected my skin from lots of outdoor sun exposure. But I didn't feel I got my money's worth (product is not inexpensive!) since the pump stops pumping out product even though I can feel there is some remanining (probably about 20-25% remaining). If Skinceuticals can improve this, product would be worth 5-stars. September 22, 2013
Great for overall presence of skin tone When I use this product daily, I notice several improvements: my skin is softer, my discoloration is lighter, I have a healthy glow and blemishes are cleared immediately. I wash my face, dry, then put a layer of the gel on my face; I wait at least 15 minutes before applying the B5 moisturizer. That's it! The more I use it, the better my skin looks and feels. This is great as I still have frequent breakouts and suffer with hyperpigmentation issues. At night, I use the retinol product alternatively with the renew overnight oily moisturizer (my skin gets much oil in the summer). Great products. September 14, 2013
