SkinCeuticals introduces new antioxidant

11 Dec 2020

Cosmeceutical company SkinCeuticals has added the Silymarin CF to its antioxidant range.

SkinCeuticals explains that the product is formulated using vitamin C serum for daytime use. Enriched with 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), 0.5% ferulic acid, 0.5% salicylic acid and 0.5% silymarin.

According to the company, the Silymarin CF is formulated specifically for oily and blemish-prone skin to help prevent free radical damage and target visible signs of ageing.

Dermatologist Dr Emma Craythorne, commented, “Cutaneous photo-protection mechanisms triggered by silymarin and silybin are numerous and mainly demonstrate their ability to reduce and suppress harmful effects of solar UV radiation, such as UV-induced oxidative stress, inflammation, immune responses and DNA damage, as well as induction of apoptosis. I can’t wait to see what there is in store for this chemical for acne throughout 2021.”
