Science

Beaker
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 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.

Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 features ground-breaking sunscreen technology with an optimized preservative system and all-mineral proven broad spectrum filters. It features one of the first-to-market, transparent, mattifying fluid that is paraben-free with an SPF 50 protection level.

How To Use

Skinceuticals

In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply four to five drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other anti-aging skincare products. Follow with Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens provide the most complete protection against visible aging caused by atmospheric aggressors.
