An oil-free vitamin C serum formulated specifically for oily and blemish-prone skin types that delivers advanced environmental protection and reduces oiliness, refines skin texture, and visibly improves skin clarity and fine lines.
Silymarin CF is a breakthrough vitamin C serum for oily and blemish-prone skin that combines 0.5% silymarin (milk thistle extract), 15% l-ascorbic acid, 0.5% ferulic acid and 0.5% salicylic acid to help prevent oil oxidation that can lead to breakouts, and visible signs of aging. This oil-free formula is clinically demonstrated to reduce oil oxidation by up to 76%, as well as reduce oiliness, refine skin texture, and visibly improve skin clarity and fine lines.
In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops of Silymarin CF to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products.
Complete your regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad-spectrum sunscreens provide comprehensive protection against signs of visible aging caused by environmental aggressors.

L-ASCORBIC ACID 15% - Known for its superior antioxidant benefits, this highly potent form of pure vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals and helps protect against oxidative stress while providing visible signs of anti-aging benefits.
SILYBUM MARIANUM FRUIT EXTRACT 0.5% - Silymarin has very strong antioxidant properties due to its composition of flavonoids. Independent studies have shown that silymarin and its individual components have broad activity in quenching a variety of radical species.
FERULIC ACID 0.5% - A plant-based antioxidant, ferulic acid neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of combination formulations.
SALICYLIC ACID 0.5% - Derived from willow tree bark, salicylic acid is commonly characterized as a beta hydroxy acid (BHA). Salicylic acid has long been recognized as a topical keratolytic agent and is commonly used at low concentrations (≤2%) to induce exfoliation.
