Potent Brightening Vitamin C

Hyperpigmentation

Description Summary How to use Key Ingredients Works Well With

SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF is an advanced daytime antioxidant serum that provides superior environmental protection that is a pigment regulator helping to reduce dullness and discolouration of the skin, it retextures and evens skin tone for a brighter more radiant complexion. Suitable for normal, combination skin with ageing and hyperpigmentation.

Key ingredients include Phloretin, an antioxidant that neutralises free radicals, accelerates cell turnover and reduces the production of unwanted pigment. L-Ascorbic Acid neutralises damaging free radicals and protects the breakdown of skin from oxidative stress. Ferulic Acid is a plant-based antioxidant that neutralises free radicals and helps to inhibit UVA, UVB and protect the skin from infrared radiation and harmful ground Ozone which can be a contributing factor to pigmentation.

Dr. Webster’s Recommendation: SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF is an extremely popular antioxidant for daytime use as it helps to reduce and prevent dark marks on the skin. In more recent studies it has shown a 20% improvement in more even skin tone. It is important for everyone to use an antioxidant together with sunscreen during the day but even more so for people who spend a great deal of time outdoors, especially in more urban or industrial areas.

SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Charter: Colour variations with this serum can range from almost clear to pale yellow or dark yellow.

Strength: 10% L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) | 2% Phloretin | 0.5% Ferulic Acid Product Size: 30ml SPF: N/A Use: AM

  • Apply the serum to the face and neck after cleansing in the morning. Allow it to absorb before applying a moisturiser and sunscreen.
  • Once absorbed this antioxidant remains effective for a minimum of 72 hours, enhancing the benefits of your normal sunscreen.
  • Always put the serum in the fridge for 12 hours before you first use it to restabilise the ingredients. Do not shake the bottle before use.
  • Do not store it in the fridge after it has been opened. Do not store in the sun as it will destabilise the ingredients.
  • This product does not contain a sunscreen. Always apply a sunscreen during the day.
  • All SkinCeuticals antioxidant formulations have been tested in final packaging and have been confirmed to remain stable and effective for 36 months, and up to 12 months after opening. L-ascorbic acid (pure Vitamin C) is known to change colour with time, however, oxidation is minimal in SkinCeuticals antioxidant and the formulation is proven to remain effective. Colour variations with this serum can range from almost clear to pale yellow or dark yellow.

Compared to the Obagi 20% vit c serum – I’d say this is a distant 2nd. I was super excited because Skinceuticals has a cult following, but Obagi remains number 1 for me. I didn’t notice a big difference in my skin as I do with Obagi & as many people have mentioned online this one smells like hotdog water. Obagi smells great and has noticeable, glowing results for me! The texture of this serum is good & the formulation is great so I’m happy I tried it as I’m sure it did the job. But I will stick with Obagi or try others in future.

I was introduced to this serum from a sample I received from dermastore. After 3 days of use, my skin transformed from a dull sun damaged texture to a brighter smooth and glowing texture. Bought a full size bottle and is lasting me over 6 months! Colour changes darker over time, but still as effective. Direction says to use 4-5 drops, however over time, once your skin’s texture soften and smoothens out, you will only need to use 2-3 drops! 😀 this has become my Favorite skin product. Love it so much!

What an amazing product. I have battled with pigmentation for the past 10 years and no amount of lazer, peels or facials helped lighten the brown marks until I started using this product three months ago. The pigmentation on my face has lightened considerably and I can honestly say that I am finally feeling more confident about myself. This together with the other skinceutical products recommended by Dr Webster has really worked miracles for me. Definitely worth the money spent.

Wow! Game changer. My freckles are gone. My face is bright and clear. This is an investment and I’m pretty sure my skin will thank me in years to come! I use this every second night and I only need 2 or 3 drops to cover my face and neck. The bottle lasts so well (for me over a year) which helps given the price!

One of the best antioxidants. My freckles have always darkens the moment I’m in the sun, even with sunscreen it will still darken. I have tried a lot of different products and nothing helped. Phloretin is the only product that keeps my freckles at bay even with sun exposure. Amazing product.

I started off with the CE Ferulic and now have moved onto the Phloretin CF.
These products are miracle workers and have really lightened my dark marks. The Phloretin is not as moisturizing as the CE Ferulic which will work better for my acne prone skin. I just finished my bottle after a year and have opened my bottle of Phloretin now. Wish they kept the Vitamin C at 15% like with Ferulic instead of dropping it to 10%
