SkinCeuticals proves once again that they are the Antioxidant Authority with the introduction of SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF Gel.  This new serum-in-a-gel delivers high potency antioxidants in a unique delivery system.  Read on for more….

If you like your skin care to provide clinically-proven maximum benefits, then you’ve probably already heard of SkinCeuticals. And while it might seem that that the addition of a gel formula to it’s popular Phloretin CF serum was a logical extension of the line, it is much more than that.

SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF Gel contains the same triple antioxidant blend as the serum: 2% phloretin, 10% vitamin C and .5% ferulic acid. Up until now, it hasn’t been possible to suspend actives in a gel network and deliver efficacy according to strict standards.  Phloretin CF Gel is  formulated at a low, acidic pH (most over the counter vitamin C creams are not) and utilizes an open matrix delivery system which allows pure actives to remain in solution for maximum penetration.

If you’re already using Phloretin CF Serum, you’re probably wondering if you should switch to the gel. Phloretin CF Gel is a great choice for someone with combination, normal, or normal-to-dry skin, those that prefer a gel texture, someone that can’t tolerate a serum, all ethnicities, men and for those who don’t like to layer their skin care. Because it’s more emollient, it’s also good for use in moderate to cold climates.  The efficacy is the same as Phloretin CF Serum.

I’ve been using Phloretin CF Gel for approximately 4 weeks, so it’s a little early to see dramatic results, but so far, I do like the gel formula and have not experienced any irritation. It’s easy to use–two pumps every morning to clean skin. The bottle will last about 3 months, with once-daily usage. I’ve used SkinCeuticals skin care products for years and what I know for sure is that these products work.

SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF Gel retails at $152. Visit to find a skin care professional near you.  If you’re already a SkinCeuticals fan and wondering about the difference between Phloretin CF and another favorite serum of mine, C E Ferulic, check out one of my previous posts.
