A daytime vitamin C antioxidant face serum that delivers advanced environmental protection and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and discoloration.
Product Description:A triple antioxidant cocktail formulation offers broad-range environmental protection due to a synergistic combination featuring 2% Phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic Acid), and 0.5% Ferulic Acid. This protective face serum also improves the appearance of discoloration.
Phloretin CF is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent which ensures effective delivery of vitamin C to skin. In order for a vitamin C serum to be effective, it must be formulated with pure L-ascorbic Acid (vitamin C) at an acidic pH within the 2.0-3.5 pH range and have a concentration between 10-20%. SkinCeuticals is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters.
How to Use:
In the morning, immediately after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops of Phloretin CF onto the palm of your hand, rubbing hands together. Gently press fingertips to your face, neck and chest to evenly distribute serum. Massage into skin in small, circular motions.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.
