Antioxidants for skin are measured not only by their superior environmental protection, but by the visible results.

Silymarin CF clinical studies demonstrate a sharp reduction in oiliness, refined skin texture, and an improvement in skin clarity, fine lines, and overall appearance.

  1. Apply 4-5 drops of Silymarin CF in the morning, after cleansing and toning. Ensure a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products.
  2. Finish your morning skincare regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants for skin and broad-spectrum sunscreens provide extensive protection against signs of visible aging caused by environmental aggressors.

Skinceuticals Canada Science and Proof

Much research suggests a causative link between oil oxidation and blemish-prone skin. Upon skin's oil oxidizing, this free radical damage can cause a cycle of inflammation and bacteria that can lead to blemish formation. Daily external 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%.

This combination vitamin c serum and antioxidant serum is designed under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly potent antioxidant that has difficulty being effectively absorbed by skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent outlines 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 stands as the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters.

  • 15% L-ascorbic Acid
    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.
  • 0.5% Silymarin
    Powerful plant-based antioxidant derived from milk thistle that helps prevent oil oxidation and provides antioxidant protection against free radicals.
  • 0.5% Ferulic Acid
    A plant-based antioxidant, ferulic acid neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of vitamin C.
  • 0.5% Salicylic Acid
    A beta-hydroxy acid provides effective exfoliation, refines pores, and helps reduce the formation of blemishes.

PHYSICIAN INSIGHT

I’m excited to introduce Silymarin CF to my oily and blemish-prone patients. Often this type of patient will go without an antioxidant due to concern about a breakout, but this oil-free formula is the perfect solution because it provides environmental protection as well as reduces skin oiliness.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Silymarin serum When I received the silymarin serum it was dark in colour and oxidized. Disappointed. It’s also a bit thick and greasy for oily skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was looking forward to this new product I bought this product 4 days ago … the next morning I woke up with a blemish. On day 4 & now 3 huge blemishes. Will discontinue use and go back to my Blemish + Age, Phloretin CF & Retexturing Activator regime. Sadly, I cannot use this product. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 weeks in and loving it! It's only been 3 weeks since I received and began using this serum, but I can already see results. My skin feels amazing! My dark spots are less visible and look way better. My skin is hydrated, smooth and has this glow to it that I cannot get enough of. I absolutely love it! Disclaimer: This is not the only product I have been using, so granted my results can be due to the combination of those, but I will say they are ALL Skinceuticals products so, at least there's that. LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for oily skin I bought this product over a month ago and from the first few days started to notice a difference in my skin. I have very oily skin and this is the first product I've tried that has made a significant difference. It's less oily and the texture is so much softer. I'm so glad I decided to try Silymarin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the CF family! I usually use Phloretin CF, but this works fabulously for these hotter, humid months! Clarity, tone and skin texture have improved, along with the CF benefits! Great product! (Using 2 weeks)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product but arrives semi-oxidized I'm happy with Silymarin's properties: it's really light, compared to many LAA formulations with vitamin E in them, plays well with makeup/other products in my morning skin care routine, and definitely doesn't aggravate breakouts (TBC if it helps minimizing them though - too early to tell). However, one would expect the highest possible quality for the product's price: still, Silymarin arrived to me half-oxidized (the color is quite yellow; not dark brown but definitely significantly darker than champagne). I know Skinceuticals claim they tested the product stability and it largely retains its potency for 2-3 years of shelf life. However, its potency does decrease over time, and I have no idea why a newly launched product (sales in Canada started 3-4 months before I made a purchase) bought directly from the manufacturer should already arrive half oxidized. Another clear improvement area is replacement of a dropper bottle with a pump bottle; for the price, it should be a fairly reasonable move. All in all, even though I like the product, I feel uncomfortable paying that much for it without even getting a bottle from a fresh and/or properly stored batch.
