Derived from apples, phloretin is a broad-spectrum molecule identified for its antioxidant properties and recently studied for use as a pigment-regulating and penetration-enhancing agent in the medical community. Classified as a special family of flavonoids called dihydrochalcones, phloretin’s unique carbonyl structure is responsible for particularly potent antioxidant activity in peroxynitrite scavenging and in the inhibition of lipid peroxidation. Additionally, it displays a wide range of bioactivities such as anticancer, antifungal, anti-bacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory.Phloretin CF® represents a new class of preventive and corrective topical antioxidant treatment. This patent-pending breakthrough technology combines the broad-range power of phloretin with vitamin C and ferulic acid in a synergistic biodiverse formulation to divide and conquer sources of damage at every level of the skin. Phloretin CF® is a broad-spectrum treatment that protects against not only free radicals, but the range of other reactive molecules known to cause damage and DNA mutations among the integral cell types. In addition to preventing photodamage, it corrects existing damage by stimulating the synthesis of essential proteins and fibers and accelerating cell turnover. The result — a strengthened support structure on the inside and a more youthful, firm, radiant appearance on the outside.
Once in the morning after cleansing, place 4-5 drops in palm of hand. Using fingertips, apply to a dry face, neck and chest. May cause a slight tingling sensation. NOTE- l-ascorbic acid could oxidize and darken with time, but will remain effective.
