Product Details

Phloretin CF features a patented synergistic combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid for enhanced protection against atmospheric skin aging – environmental damage and premature signs of aging caused by free radicals from UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA), and ozone pollution (O3). In addition to antioxidant protective benefits, Phloretin CF improves the appearance of discoloration, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.

  • Provides advanced environmental protection by neutralizing damaging free radicals
  • Improves the appearance of discoloration and overall skin tone
  • Once absorbed, this vitamin C serum remains effective for a minimum of 72 hours
  • Paraben-, fragrance-, and dye-free
  • Ideal for normal, oily, and combination skin types

How To Use

In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products. May be used on the back of the hands. It is normal for vitamin C products to darken after opening due to air and light exposure. The formula will remain effective. Once opened, it is recommended to be used within 3 months of opening.

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.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    SkinCeuticals research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, provide superior results to each single antioxidant formulation.

    Phloretin CF is a triple antioxidant cocktail formulation shown to provide broad-range environmental protection due to a synergistic combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid. It is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly-potent antioxidant that is, by its structure, difficult to effectively deliver on skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent describes 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.


    SkinCeuticals defines atmospheric aging as the visible result of a range of environmental aggressors on skin, including UV, infrared radiation (IRA), and pollution. Ongoing SkinCeuticals research shows that over-exposure to these aggressors may cause visible skin aging, and topical antioxidants can help prevent the impact to skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Product! First I want to thank SkinCeuticals for sending me a complimentary sample of CE Ferulic without having to purchase anything. CE Ferulic and Phloretin CF are two of the best products I have ever used. Typically I use Phloretin CF. Living part time in Arizona and enjoying the sun can be hard on your skin. Phloretin CF combined with Physical Fusion UV Defense sunscreen with SPF 30 protect my skin all day. It amazes me how well those 2 products work together to prevent sun damage. I'm 59 and have had oily skin all my life with acne issues. Skinceuticals products are by far the best I've used. Its pricey but well worth the results. I wish I would have discovered these products when I was younger. I use other SkinCeutical products too, but the Phloretin CF and CE Ferulic are the best for me. Thanks again for the complimentary sample!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Addition to My Skincare Routine I started using this product 3 months ago, and I am impressed. The overall radiance of my skin is improved. Of course, I can’t see the preventative effects of this Vitamin C yet, but after reviewing the scientific data on Vitamin C (and this Vitamin C in particular!) I am confident I’m purchasing a great product that prevents future damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have for Oily/Combo Skin!! I had previously used CF Ferulic & while I had great results it was a bit too heavy for my oily skin. So I gave this a try as its for oilier skin types and it’s amazing!! It’s perfect for my skin & I saw results immediately. It brightens & evens my skin like no other. A little goes a long way so that helps justify the price as well as the results. Skinceuticals makes great products, Ive yet to find any other brand that gives me these kind of results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for combination skin ! I was a CE Ferulic user. Due to my young and acne prone skin my dermatologist recommend switching to Phloretin CF. I love it!!!! It helped with my breakouts and balancing the PH of my skin. I also had post acne pigmentation that has been improving alot! If you suffer from adult acne and pigmentation this is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will never be without Just started using skinceuticals and this particular product is amazing. My skin is glowing...have actually had comments (which I never do.) Smells like espresso, but I guess that's ok since I love coffee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a difference I’ve gone through 2 bottles and will continue to purchase forever. I have very oily skin and this is perfect. It seems to make my skin look more even than any other product. It is helping my neck also.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Immediately oxidized I was unaware that C products need to be kept in dark, dry areas. So when I first opened the product and found it was yellowish-brown I assumed that was just the regualr color. Eventaully I read online that this serum should be clear. I reached out to skinceuticals but didn't recieve a reply.
