Exclusive Skinceuticals Silymarin CF – Vitamin C Serum For Oily Skin

Silymarin CF is available exclusively at our clinic starting March 5th, two weeks ahead of the official launch in Canada. To purchase the new Silymarin CF vitamin C serum, please call 604-261-9121 or visit us in person.

New Product Launch From SkinCeuticals

A highly-anticipated SkinCeuticals product launch in Canada that has been six years in the making, this time it’s all about a breakthrough oil-free vitamin C serum paired with silymarin – a powerful antioxidant derived from the milk thistle plant.

Milk thistle is a flowering herb that has been used for a wide range of therapeutic purposes in traditional herbal medicine for thousands of years. The silymarin found inside the plant is rich in flavonoid antioxidants found to help neutralize free radicals.

Silymarin CF antioxidant vitamin C serum prevents the oil oxidation that encourages blemishes to form on the skin while reducing oiliness, refining skin texture and helping to maintain a clear complexion.

Active Ingredients

This new formulation combines 15 per cent L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with 0.5 per cent concentrations of silymarin, ferulic acid and salicylic acid.

  • Vitamin C is a key ingredient because it helps to protect skin from free radical damage caused by oxidative stressors such as UV rays, infrared radiation (IRA), pollution, and diet. It also helps to replenish the skin’s natural antioxidant levels.
  • Silymarin is a powerful plant-based antioxidant derived from milk thistle that helps prevent oil oxidation and provides antioxidant protection against free radicals.
  • Ferulic acid neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of vitamin C.
  • Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid that provides effective exfoliation, refines pores, and helps reduce the formation of blemishes.

Vitamin C Serum For Oily & Combination Skin

Silymarin CF is a great choice for anyone afraid to use an antioxidant serum fearing it will cause breakouts on their oily and congested skin. This oil-free serum contains salicylic acid to decongest and refine pores while reducing the production of sebum. It’s also safe to use with prescription topical acne products.

How To Use

After cleansing and toning in the morning, apply four to five drops of Silymarin CF serum to a dry face, neck and chest before other serums, moisturisers or sunscreen.

For optimal results, use a broad-spectrum daily sunscreen when using a topical vitamin C antioxidant serum to protect and shield the skin throughout the day. We recommend pairing Silymarin CF with Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50.
