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 5 out of 5 by from Great product comes with a high price I have been using this for a year now and have definitely noticed the difference in my skin. It has improved the texture by making my skin more smooth. My face skin feels younger and healthier now. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to improve the look and health of their skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product really works It has only been two weeks and I am noticing and feeling difference in my skin. I have melanin and suncreen wasn't enough to protect my skin from darkening. My whole face appearance got better. I had benefited from this product and I will not stop using it. It's well worth of using it for improvement of the skin tone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preventative yet produces immediate results! I have been using Phloretin CF since 2009 and have never gotten so many compliments on my skin before using this product. I am 31 years old and have spent a lot of time in the sun and have acne prone sensitive skin and people really think that I'm still in my early 20s or younger! I have even been accused of having botox since I started using this product! Also, the texture of my skin is so much softer and supple. I'm a grad student on a budget so all of my other skin care products are over the counter except for this amazing serum! It's so worth the money and it lasts for a long time! If you are looking for all skin care products in one bottle, this is the product for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! I have been using this for a year now and have definitely noticed the difference in my skin. It has improved the texture by making my skin more smooth. My pores are smaller and my skin is never dry anymore. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to improve the look and health of their skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORTH IT I was wary at the spa to purchase this product due to the price, so my aesthetician gave me a sample and said that I'd love it. I used it at first just once a week, then two or three times a week, and now I refuse to not include it in my daily skincare regimen. When I used the product sporadically, my employees and customers would comment on the glowing nature of my skin on the days that i used it. Interestingly, I always seemed to look tired or just different (I can't really articulate the difference, to be honest) when I didn't use the product in the morning. Now that I use it regularly, my skin is soft, smooth and beautiful. I feel more beautiful than I ever have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not As Good As This product is not as good as the C and E Ferulic Acid product, in my opinion. I did not get the same tingle on my skin from this product as I do from the aforementioned product. I thought that perhaps this would be better because it was a new product but not so. Perhaps it's because I'm so old and I need all of the tingle that I can get! Anyhow in this case, old is all good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great It improved my overall tone of the face and did not cause any new acne. My face is acne prone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! My dermatologist recommended this after my microderm. I normally wouldn't spend that much on a product being a single mom BUT I can't believe the results of my skin after just 2 weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without it! This is the product I would want if I could take only one personal item onto a desert island. I swear it protects and corrects. My moisturizer sinks in better, and I get lots of compliments on my glowing skin. Fabulous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I've been using this product ever since I learned about it, about five or six months ago - and I love the results. My face feels firmer, and I no longer have a 'peeling' reaction as I've had to other similar products. I use the face cream as well, and my skin has never looked better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will stick with C E Ferulic. t.t I used both Phloretin CF and C E Ferulic. I think Phloretin CF is a great product, but my skin improved immediately when I applied C E Ferulic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have! This really works! I had a rough place I could feel but not see, within days (less then a week) I could no longer feel it. I use retinols but this seems to do things that they don't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a Bottle I am a senior citizen and wished I had used this years ago......however since I am now using it daily, I can tell you it does work miracles. It has helped even out the color/texture of my skin except where the doctor did a biopsy. I would recommend this to anyone for preventing sun and age spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A product one should never live without! Use this product along with the retexturizing activator and your skin will be flawless. Even alone this is the by far the best product I have ever used. I'm over 40 and everyone comments on my skin. they tell me how beautiful, smooth and flawless my skin is. Many say its genetics but I know its skinceuticals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential. Don't leave home without applying it. My review: I discovered Skinceuticals in 2008, thanks to my dermatologist. Registered on your Website soon after. I swear by Phloretin CF, that stuff is magic, in the sense that you feel it working as soon as you apply it. The eye dropper ...bottle technique is ideal, as you only use as much as you need. I find 'just a ginger' amount does the trick. After putting CF on, then applying my helioplex sunscreen, I know I'm protected by the nasty UVA and UVB rays. (With just suncreen, my skin feels naked by comparison.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for sun damaged skin After discussing my aging skin problems with my dermatologist, she recommended Phloretin CF. My skin is oily and had numerous sun spots. After using this product for 3 months, my sun spots have faded atleast 50%. I wish I had taken before pictures just to prove it to everyone. My 45 year old skin is looking younger every day! I will be changing over all of my skin care products to skincentuals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from phloretin cf i have been using ce ferulic for a long time, when i heard abt phloretin cf i wanted to try this out as i was told this is better for combination n oily skin...i tried it n after only 4 days of use got big bumps in the skin as if there was a huge pimple under the skin--got quite a few of these. my skin looked baaaad,,,was so disappointed by this product as i love skinceuticals ce ferulic n retexturising activator. plz dont use if u have sensitive skin or are allergic to alcohol--when i called the skinceuticals rep she told me that this product has alcohol too...hated this product.will return to my ce ferulic, love that product.. buy this only from skinceuticals.com, not from doctors offices...had a bad experience twice ,theysold me expired bottles,found this out when i called skinceuticals with the batch number on the bottle to enquire if it was fresh or not,both times i was told it had expired. so if u buy from an office/spa, call skinceuticals with the batch number on the box to enquire its effectiveness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent I have used this product for 8 months and it is great! I have extremely fair and sensitive skin and live in the south. This summer my skin looks great, did not burn and I have been getting compliments since I have been using the skinceuticals product line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liquid gold! Other companies try to compete with this product, but no other line comes close to the combination powers of Phloretin, Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid! This is the one skin care product that I refuse to live without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I won't leave home without this! After using this product for only a short time, my skin feels better, looks better and simply is healthier. It's the first thing I put on my face after cleansing in the morning - I won't go a day without it.
