Ground level ozone (O3) pollution is shown to cause signs of premature aging.


Like the air we breathe, ozone pollution surrounds us around the clock. Ozone pollution oxidizes lipids and depletes skin’s natural antioxidant reservoir, triggering a progressive cascade of damage, contributing to visible signs of aging. Ozone pollution may contribute to premature aging that can lead to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.1

SkinCeuticals partnered with a leading ozone expert Dr. Guiseppe Valacchi to study ozone pollution in live skin. This research shows that SkinCeuticals antioxidants neutralize free radicals on the upper layer of the skin to help prevent the impact of ozone damage to skin.2

**Protocol: 1-week clinical study on 12 subjects with 5 days of exposure to 0.8 ppm ozone for 3 hours per day. Subjects applied C E Ferulic and Phloretin CF to forearms for 3 days prior to ozone exposure. Product was left on skin for a minimum of 3 hours. Subjects continued with daily application of C E Ferulic and Phloretin CF for the entire duration of the study. Inclusion Criteria: Females and males ages 18-55 The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Air Quality Index categorizes ozone concentration at 0.404 ppm (parts per million) / 1 hr. and above as very unhealthy air. People who are sensitive to ozone experience severe respiratory symptoms (aggravated cough or pain) and impaired breathing.



New ground-breaking SkinCeuticals science shows over-exposure to ozone pollution may cause visible skin aging, and topical antioxidant use can help prevent the impact of ozone damage to skin.


For the first time ever, SkinCeuticals C E FERULIC and PHLORETIN CF antioxidants were shown to help shield against signs of skin-aging induced by ozone (O3) pollution.1
