Derived from the bark of fruit trees such as apple, grapefruit, and pear, phloretin is a broad-spectrum molecule newly identified for its potent antioxidant properties and recently studied for use as a pigment-regulating and penetration-enhancing agent in the medical community.
How does Phloretin CF work?
After extensive research, SkinCeuticals has identified Phloretin (2%) as a powerful molecule that works in synergy with Vitamin C (10%) and ferulic acid (0.5%) to provide broad spectrum antioxidant protection. This patent-pending technology and unsurpassed combination of key ingredients helps protect against the range of cell-damaging Reactive Oxygen Species, including free radicals, oxygen ions and peroxides. Further, SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF helps correct existing damage by stimulating the synthesis of essential proteins and fibers and accelerating cell turnover.
The broad-spectrum action of Phloretin CF delivers powerful, optimised photoprotection, penetrating the skin at every level to help protect integral cell types and prevent cell mutation by shielding the skin’s DNA from reactive oxygen species. The skin’s natural immunity against DNA impairment is strengthened, to preserve cellular integrity and help prevent serious skin conditions. Cell renewal is accelerated, the support structure of the skin is boosted and UV-induced discolorations are inhibited. On an aesthetic level, age spots are diminished, skin tone is dramatically improved for a firmer-looking, stronger re-textured complexion. The skin appears healthy, radiant and younger looking.
Phloretin CF is ideal for oily, problematic and normal skin types and for those who are concerned with hyperpigmentation, erythema (redness), uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity, mottled appearance or photo-damage.
