Product Details

Phloretin CF Gel is a revolutionary antioxidant technology combining 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid for enhanced protection against atmospheric aging – environmental damage and premature signs of aging caused by free radicals from UVA/UVB radiation. This daily topical vitamin C antioxidant also helps diminish the appearance of discoloration, refine skin texture, and improve skin tone.

  • Provides advanced environmental protection by neutralizing damaging free radicals
  • Diminishes the look of discoloration and refines texture
  • Comforting light gel texture ideal for normal, oily, and combination skin types
  • Proven well-tolerated by men post-shaving
  • Paraben-, fragrance-, and dye-free

How To Use

In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 pumps 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.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    SkinCeuticals research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, provide superior results to each single antioxidant alone. Phloretin CF Gel is a topical vitamin C antioxidant suspended in a gel delivery system. In a comforting texture, this vitamin C gel has been 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 is, by its structure, difficult to effectively deliver on skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent describes the formulation parameters required for effective delivery of a topical 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great consistency I will begin by saying that I bought this in the gel in error; I meant to buy the serum, but it was a happy accident. The serum is the same formula, but the gel is easier to portion out and less waste occurs. At this point, I’ve been using the product, as directed for 2 months. I can’t say that I’ve noticed an overly dramatic difference, but my melasma does seem somewhat lighter. Fading out the dark spots is also going to time, which I realize. My dermatologist took pictures at the beginning and I’ll be curious to see the most current before and after pictures to gain a more solid conclusion on the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is life changing. I have oily/ acne prone skin but am also concerned with aging. This stuff dramatically changes my skin when I use it, it's clearer, tighter, and just looks better. I wish it wasn't so expensive but I will continue to repurchase because nothing works better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for oily skin I've used the Phloretin CF serum for several years and have generally liked it, but I decided to try the gel since I was getting about ready to order another bottle of the serum. I MUCH prefer the texture and consistency of the gel for my face! I have oily skin and I find the gel seems to absorb better and leaves a cleaner feel to my skin. I think my makeup lasts a little longer as well without getting shiny. I'm using what I have left of my serum on my neck and chest and the gel for my face; when the serum is gone I'll be using this for everything. If you're oily, give this formulation a try!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it I love the serum version and I sometimes use a gel hydrator. I was excited when this came out. I was a little disappointed with the consistency. I ended up mixing it into my gel hydrator. I feel that with a price tag that high, I shouldn't have to doctor it up.
