Product Details

Phloretin CF features a patented synergistic combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid for enhanced protection against atmospheric skin aging – environmental damage and premature signs of aging caused by free radicals from UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA), and ozone pollution (O3). In addition to antioxidant protective benefits, Phloretin CF improves the appearance of discoloration, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.

  • Provides advanced environmental protection by neutralizing damaging free radicals
  • Improves the appearance of discoloration and overall skin tone
  • Once absorbed, this vitamin C serum remains effective for a minimum of 72 hours
  • Paraben-, fragrance-, and dye-free
  • Ideal for normal, oily, and combination skin types

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. 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 formulation.

    Phloretin CF is a triple antioxidant cocktail formulation shown to provide 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 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 AGING

    SkinCeuticals defines atmospheric aging 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 aging, and topical antioxidants can help prevent the impact to skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Immediately oxidized I was unaware that C products need to be kept in dark, dry areas. So when I first opened the product and found it was yellowish-brown I assumed that was just the regualr color. Eventaully I read online that this serum should be clear. I reached out to skinceuticals but didn't recieve a reply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glowy perfection in a bottle. I have been using the Phloretin CF since I got a chemical peel in March. I love this product. My acne scars are completely gone and my face is smooth and it glows. Additionally, I invested in a small cosmetic refrigerator; therefore, I have not notice any smell about this product. The product smells like how it smelt when my Dermatologist put it on after my peel. Invest in this product and you will not go wrong!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hopeful but inquiring about the smell I’ve gotten a sample of this from my facialist and I want to continue using it, but I know that vitamin c is extremely unstable so I’d like to know if my product is spoiled before I continue using it. It smells like smoked meat. Literally. And it’s yellowish in color. I know that when vitamin c serums turn color, that means they are turning bad and therefore losing efficacy. Can you tell me how it’s supposed to smell when it’s fresh? Does it always have a smokey scent to it? Lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice Love the product, smell is not so great but results are worth it. Product is a little pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am all about antioxidants and preventative aging. I think this product is a great alternative for those who do not like their Vitamin C serum. It feels lightweight on the skin and gives my skin a healthy glow. Since this is more about preventative skincare, i can not attest to any extreme benefits

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My aesthetician recommended I use this to unclog my congested skin. I have oily combo skin and before I used Phloretin CF I had a lot of little black heads in my T zone. While I wouldn't say this is a cure all, I will say I've noticed a difference in my skin texture - fewer small bumps, and I feel my skin has more of a glow than it did previously. I love Skinceuticals brand and I think, while pricey, the products they put out are worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have you been waiting for a product that will change your skin life forever, because look no further. My whole routine is skinceuticles but this little beauty works overtime and really does it all! I will buy this for the rest of my life, and I can’t stress how potent and effective the ingredients are.&nbsp;<br><br>If you were only to pick one serum, this would need it be it!&nbsp;

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin looks amazing I was given this after IPL treatments. I love this stuff, my skin looks great. I've tried buying similar products off amazon, and they do not compare to this.
