    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.

    See Protocol

    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.

  • Science & Proof


  • Science

    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.

Key Ingredients

  • 15% L-ascorbic Acid
  • 0.5% Silymarin
  • 0.5% Ferulic Acid
  • 0.5% Salicylic Acid

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.

Physician Insight

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke out immediately I got a sample. I usually get a tiny pimple every two weeks. Maybe once a month a bigger one. I used this twice with no other changes and broke out on the third, all over

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! All I can say is wow. I am so thankful I bought this product! My skin wasn’t looking good at all. I had been suffering over a year w/ blemishes when I came off birth control and having to wear the mask for 7+ hours a day didn’t help either! I switched to cotton masks, started using this product (am) and the skinceuticals conditioning toner (am and pm) and my skin has dramatically changed (retinol at night)! It hasn’t looked this good in such a long time! I can finally look in the mirror and feel happy about how my skin looks compared to what it is before. Thank you, thank you, thank you skinceuticals for making such amazing quality products! Worth every dime!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticky I had high hopes for this because I have oily skin. The thick texture and stickiness I just can’t get past. I am so disappointed I wasted my money on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Oil control plus skin correction I thought oily skin primarily in the Tzone all my life (45 this year). I love how the serum controls the excess oil. It’s a great base under make up. I’ve used Phloretin Cf for 3 years now. This version is all that plus the oil control. Yes the smell is strong but who cares when this product actually it gives you great skin??? Scent goes away upon application anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!! I have dealt with oily skin all of my life. I am still in disbelief this product works the way that it does. After beginning my entire Skincuticals regime, I’ve noticed a significant difference in tone, texture, line reduction, clarity, the lis goes on. All of their products have proven to be one of the greatest investments. This product is amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great results on skin I tried this antioxidant serum and it works great on my oily skin i love that it has salicylic acid in it to help prevent blemishes as well. The smell is quite strong and applying it on your hand is not something i recommend as it left a brown spot on my palm for awhile so that concerned me but otherwise it is a good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great texture I was given a sample and have been using it daily. It makes my face feel clean and smooth. I hardly have any blemishes occurring when I use as part of my skincare regimen.
