SkinCeuticals new groundbreaking Vitamin C serum does it all.
Silymarin CF is a powerful vitamin C antioxidant formulated specifically for stubborn skin. The result of six years of research and development, this oil-free formula helps prevent free radical damage caused by oil oxidation, and helps reduce oiliness, blemishes, and visible signs of aging. SkinCeuticals latest groundbreaking antioxidant combines 0.5% silymarin (milk thistle extract), 15% l-ascorbic acid, 0.5% ferulic acid and 0.5% salicylic acid to help prevent oil oxidation that can lead to breakouts and visible signs of aging. Silymarin CF’s oil free formula is clinically demonstrated to reduce oil oxidation by up to 76%, as well as reduce oiliness, refine skin texture, and visibly improve skin clarity and fine lines. This high-performance product contains an abundance of key components which provide the skin with unrivaled protection from environmental aggressors. Growing research shows a causative link between oil oxidation and the formation of blemishes. When skin’s oils oxidize, this specific type of free radical damage can cause a cycle of inflammation and bacteria that is linked to blemish formation. Daily environmental aggressors like sun and pollution can generate free radicals that further oxidize skin oils. Pimples are inevitable and unfortunately, acne and blemishes do not only occur when you are in your pubescent stage of life. Whether you have a teenager at home who needs a little more to help clearing up their acne, or are experiencing perimenopausal breakouts – Silymarin CF can be a great option for anyone.
Silymarin CF helps with the following:
Blackheads: With 0.5% Silymarin, this optimized concentration of milk thistle extract helps prevent oil oxidation. Oil oxidation is when the sebum on the skin’s surface clogs pores which results in blackheads.
Acne Prone and/or Oily Skin: Containing 15% L-Ascorbic Acid and 0.5% Salicylic Acid, this is the most potent and beneficial form of Vitamin C with an added Salicylic Acid for oily and acne prone skin.
Perimenopausal Breakouts: Beta Hydroxy Acid exfoliates and sheds dead skin cells from the top layer. It helps to improve redness and swelling which is commonly found in perimenopausal breakouts.
Maskne: Silymarin CF boats antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects caused by wearing a mask. The perfect solution for even the most stubborn maskne.
