Silymarin CF is a Skin Ceuticals oil free Vitamin C antioxidant packed with Silymarin and Ferulic acid. This helps to provide your skin with environmental protection for oily and blemish-prone skin. It will also help to reduce oiliness, refine your skin texture and visibly improve skin clarity and fine lines. That is a lot of power packed in one product!
So what exactly goes into Silymarin CF? Let’s break this down a bit to better understand. Silymarin CF is a breakthrough vitamin C serum for oily and blemish-prone skin that combines 0.5% silymarin , 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 is an antioxidant compound taken from milk thistle seeds which is a powerful plant-based antioxidant derived from that milk thistle that helps prevent oil oxidation and provides antioxidant protection against free radicals.
Ascorbic acid is lauded for its superior antioxidant benefits, this highly potent form of pure vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative stress while providing visible anti-aging benefits.
Ferulic acid is a plant-based antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of vitamin C.
Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid provides effective exfoliation, refines pores, and helps reduce the formation of blemishes.
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. Silymarin CF is clinically demonstrated to reduce oil oxidation by up to 76%!
The best ways to use this product is in the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops of Silymarin CF to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products.
