    SkinCeuticals research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, provide superior results to each single antioxidant alone.

    Phloretin CF is a triple antioxidant cocktail formulation shown to provide powerful environmental protection due to a synergistic combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid. It is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly-potent antioxidant that, by its structure has difficultly to being effectively absorbed on skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent describes the formulation parameters required for effective delivery of vitamin C to skin:

    1. Pure l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C);
    2. An acidic pH within the 2.0-3.5 pH range and;
    3. A concentration between 10%-20%.

    Following the vitamin C parameters established by Duke University research, this breakthrough serum-in-a-gel contains a synergistic antioxidant combination to help protect the delicate eye area from oxidative stress, while targeted actives revive under-eye skin and reduce the appearance of puffiness. 

    AOX+ Eye Gel prevents signs of ageing while correcting existing photodamage. When used daily, this preventive and corrective treatment combats signs of fatigue to restore a fresh, vibrant appearance around the eyes.

    Suitable for all skin types.



    • 15% L-ascorbic acid: Lauded for its superior antioxidant benefits, L-ascorbic acid is a highly potent form of pure vitamin C that helps neutralise free radicals and protect against oxidative stress, while providing visible anti-ageing benefits.
    • 1% alpha tocopherol: This pure form of vitamin E neutralises free radicals and replenishes skin lipids.  It has been proven to act synergistically with vitamin C.
    • 0.5% ferulic acid: A plant-based antioxidant, ferulic acid neutralises free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of vitamins C and E.
