Product details

Silymarin CF is a powerful triple-antioxidant vitamin C serum featuring a proven combination of 0.5% silymarin, 15% L-ascorbic acid and 0.5% ferulic acid to provide advanced environmental protection against free radicals that cause oil oxidation, which may contribute to breakouts and visible signs of ageing. This oil-free vitamin C serum also contains 0.5% salicylic acid to clear blemishes and help prevent new breakouts from forming.
  • Provides advanced environmental protection by neutralising damaging free radicals
  • Prevents oil oxidation that contributes to blemish formation
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin radiance and clarity
  • Refines skin texture and minimises pore appearance
  • Ideal for blemish-prone and oily skin types

How to use

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.

Complete your regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens provide comprehensive protection against signs of visible ageing caused by environmental aggressors.

Note: It is normal for vitamin C products to darken after opening due to air and light exposure. This does not affect the product’s potency. Store in a cool, dark place. Use within six months of opening.

Science & proof

Growing research shows a causative link between oil oxidation and the formation of blemishes, and the role of antioxidants in breakout prevention. Daily environmental factors like UV and pollution generate free radicals that can damage, or oxidise, skin’s oils. This oxidative stress creates an environment that promotes blemish-causing bacteria, which may ultimately lead to breakouts. Silymarin is an antioxidant derived from the milk thistle plant that is shown to prevent oil oxidation that can contribute blemishes.
