Key ingredients

BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Phloretin provides your skin with a nature-inspired, broad-spectrum protective formula.

Research has shown that a combination of 15% L-ascorbic acid, Ferulic acid, Phloretin, and Vitamin E to be the ideal antioxidant blend for skin protection. These are natural substances that actively participate in treating and preventing photoaging

L-Ascorbic Acid 15% 

L-Ascorbic acid is a broad spectrum antioxidant that can help provide protection against UVA and UVB radicals produced from sun exposure. BIOMIMIC uses 15% L-ascorbic acid which is the purest form of Vitamin C. It has been carefully formulated to ensure stability, absorption & efficacy.

Helps neutralize free radicals, protects against oxidative stress, and provides visible anti-aging benefits. 

  • Brightens and boosts glow
  • Broad spectrum antioxidant

  • Helps even pigmentation and skin tone

  • Helps fight against free radicals & provides broad-spectrum environmental protection


Phloretin is a new broad spectrum antioxidant that can help provide protection against UVA and UVB radicals produced from sun exposure. It is found in the leaves and bark of apple trees as well as Manchurian apricots. Phloretin has soothing skin properties for problematic skin. 

  • Soothes for problematic skin
  • Helps even pigmentation and skin tone

  • Helps fight against free radicals and provides broad-spectrum environmental protection

High concentrations of Phloretin are found naturally in apple tree leaves

Ferulic Acid 

Ferulic acid is an antioxidant that works to boost the effects of other antioxidants within a formula. It helps neutralize free radicals and complements the antioxidant benefits of vitamins C and E to combat the signs of ageing. This powerful antioxidant can be found in rice grain, among other plants.

  • Enhances the stability of other antioxidants, mainly C and E
  • Helps fight against free radicals & provides broad-spectrum environmental protection 

High concentrations of Ferulic Acid are found naturally in rice grain

Vitamin E 

Vitamin E is one of the most powerful known antioxidants shown to reduce oxidative stress. Vitamin E plays a role in the photo-protection, longevity by slowing down the cellular aging process. 

Vitamin E helps reduce the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) (5). MMPs are groups enzymes that degrade collagen in your skin. 

  • Improves skin firmness and elasticity
  • Helps reduce UV-induced skin damage

  • Helps prevent collagen degradation to reduce the signs of ageing

High concentrations of Vitamin E are found naturally in nuts and seeds.


BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Phloretin is best applied in the morning, after cleansing.

The science of 

BIOMIMIC™ Vitamin C + Phloretin contains four different plant derived antioxidants which act together to combat UV damage (1,3). This unique combination of 15% L-ascorbic acid with vitamin E, Ferulic acid and phloretin has been clinically proven for its synergistic antioxidant functions. (1).


Green apples have phloretin in their peels to prevent sun damage (2). Corn bran has ferulic acid, and all plants make vitamin C to ease oxidative damage. 

By combining all these powerful antioxidants into a single product can help provide your cells with optimal protection from environmental damage – just in the same way nature uses these ingredients for their protection.

UV radiation - free radicals (ROS)

UV Radiation is full of energy and are capable of disrupting cellular structures while also producing free radicals. In turn, these free radicals amplify the interference by making attachments with random molecules of skin’s structural units. They initiate enzymes that degrade extracellular matrix proteins and cause wrinkling.

UV radiation - Genetic mutations

UV-B radiation tends to mutate genes by breaking the bonds of thiamine in its molecule. This mutation has a carcinogenic effect and the potential of causing skin cancer (1).

Another genetic mutation caused by UV-radiation is the oxidation of guanine, which results in 8-oxo guanine formation. This DNA alteration speeds up aging and photo-damage.

UV radiation – Hyperpigmentation

Your body produces melanin in response to UV-B exposure in order to help protect skin from damage (1, 2). Excessive melanin production known as melanogenesis leads to freckles and age spots. 

Ingredients such as the combination of Vitamins C, E and ferulic acid have been shown to break down melanin clusters for a clearer complexion.
