Phloretin is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize the environmental free-radical damage that can contribute to premature signs of aging. This ingredient has also been found to promote cellular turnover and improve the appearance of discoloration and uneven skin tone. Phloretin is a key component of SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF, Phloretin CF Gel, and AOX+ Eye Gel.
Phloretin is an antioxidant compound found naturally in several species of pears and apples, as well as tomatoes and strawberries. However, in the case of SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF, Phloretin CF Gel, and AOX+ Eye Gel, the phloretin is synthesized in a lab.
Phloretin is an extremely beneficial ingredient for the skin. In addition to providing protection against damaging environmental free radicals and improving the appearance of discoloration and uneven skin tone, phloretin also helps enhance the activity of other antioxidants, including the L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and ferulic-acid found in SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF and Phloretin CF Gel.
