How To Use
- In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops of Silymarin CF to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products.

The measure of an antioxidant is not only its superior environmental protection, but its visible results.
Silymarin CF clinical studies show a reduction in oiliness, refined skin texture, and an improvement in skin clarity, fine lines, and overall appearance.
Protocol: Average results shown. A 12-week, single-center clinical study conducted on 50 women and men ages 18-50 with oily, blemish-prone skin (Brazil, 2020). Silymarin CF was applied once daily in conjunction with a sunscreen.
Growing research shows a causative link between oil oxidation and the formation of blemishes. When skin’s oils oxidize, this specific type of free radical damage can cause a cycle of inflammation and bacteria that is linked to blemish formation. Daily environmental aggressors like sun and pollution can generate free radicals that further oxidize skin oils.
Silymarin CF is clinically demonstrated to reduce oil oxidation by up to 76%.
This combination antioxidant serum is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly potent antioxidant that by its structure has difficulty being effectively absorbed by skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent outlines 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.

Lauded for its superior antioxidant benefits, this highly potent form of pure vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative stress while providing visible anti-aging benefits.Learn more about L-ascorbic Acid

I’m excited to introduce Silymarin CF to my oily and blemish-prone patients. Often this type of patient will go without an antioxidant due to concern about a breakout, but this oil-free formula is the perfect solution because it provides environmental protection as well as reduces skin oiliness.
