What is the difference between CE Ferulic vs Phloretin CF

CE Ferulic Acid vs. Phloretin CF

Its difficult to find the right product for your skin type.  We are often bombarded by the estheticians and skin care representatives about the products that they don't actually understand themselves.  Obviously, we have to be a bit aware of our skin type as well. Our skin changes dramatically with aging, seasons and level of hydration. Our skin is pretty perky, glowing and well toned during 20s-40s.  When menopause hits, or estrogen levels decreases dramatically and we tend to lose the elasticity, integrity and the moisture in our skin.

Rule of Thumb:  Our skin is best when it is well hydrated and slightly oily.  Estrogen provides the perfect condition to have a beautiful glowing skin.  (i.e. smoking drys your skin, Drinking alcohol dehydrates your skin,  Sun tends dehydrate the skin and forces the skin to build a protective layer (black spots, hyperpigmentation), sleeping helps healthy skin to be rejuvenated, water will hydrate your skin.)

By understanding your skin type, you can make a better decision on the skin care products to improve the health and look of your skin. Now, I will talk about two serums that almost everyone should have.  Vitamin CE ferulic acid vs Phloretin CF.  

Which one to choose from and why? Freckles, age spots, wrinkles, laxity, blotchiness, mottled complexion, and even skin cancer can all be traced to sun exposure and increased reactive oxygen species levels within our skin. The type and severity of skin aging depend on a combination of each individual's genetic makeup, their history of UV radiation exposure, and the intensity of that exposure. Therefore the type of antioxidant treatment needed depends on each individual as well. C E

Ferulic Acid: Vitamin C is an antioxidant and Vitamin E works to replenish the skin oil to help capture and retain moisture in the skin.  This is best for those over the age of 40, post-menopausal women or dry skin type.  

  • Replenishing lipids

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dry, combination, and normal skin

Phloretin CF:  It is bested suited for oily or combination skin type.  Used to protect the skin against the sun and to prevent skin discoloration (hyper pigmentation).

  • Diminishing age spots and other forms of hyperpigmentation
  • Accelerating cell renewal
  • Improving laxity
  • Retexturizing skin
