While C E Ferulic is the ideal topical antioxidant for fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and skin brightening in normal dry and sensitive skin types, Phloretin CF may be a better choice for normal, oily and combination skin experiencing discoloration along with visible signs of aging. Both of these topical antioxidants are formulated with L-ascorbic acid (the purest form of vitamin C) and ferulic acid, but the addition of phloretin is what makes Phloretin CF unique.
Phloretin is a natural antioxidant derived from apples, pears and other plants. In addition to neutralizing free radicals generated by UV rays, infrared radiation (IRA) and ozone pollution, phloretin has been shown to enhance the action of other antioxidants, improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and help minimize the look of sun-induced damage.
Phloretin CF plays a key role in any skincare regimen designed to improve the appearance of discoloration. Consider this daily topical antioxidant your first step in getting your skin back on a healthy-looking, even-toned path—and a comprehensive anti-discoloration routine can help amplify its results. Here, three additional products to consider that can help you achieve your goals.
