  • Visible Results

  • before

    The measure of an antioxidant is not only its superior environmental protection, but its visible anti-aging results.

    C E Ferulic clinical studies show a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, improved skin firmness, and a brightened complexion.

    See Protocol

    Protocol: Average results shown. 16-week clinical study conducted on 50 caucasian male and female subjects ages 40-60 years old (USA, 2013). For controlled results, subjects used SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser and Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 daily, and Emollience moisturizer as needed.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

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

    Mentioned extensively in peer-reviewed scientific journals, C E Ferulic is a vitamin C serum demonstrated to provide powerful environmental protection due to a synergistic combination of 15% pure vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid), pure vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) 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 being effectively absorbed by skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent outlines 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%. SkinCeuticals is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it came in a smaller size The product works great. My skin is brighter and my dark spots have faded. My complaint is you can’t get through the full product without it oxidizing. After three months the product has changed color to brown. I only use about 1/2 the bottle in three months time. It’s a lot of money and product wasted. The packaging or package size needs to change.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from love it but consistency keeps changing I use this regularly for years and I LOVE it. The consistency of this ferulic keeps getting lighter and lighter however. I feel like I'm buying water vs what this ferulic used to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin is proof now that this works/long run. I was introduced to this product well over a decade ago by my esthetician. I am now in my mid-50s, and believe that this product is one of the primary reasons my skin looks so good: I felt my skin was starting to show my age, and this serum has given me brilliant results. When most folks find out my real age, almost all remark that I look nowhere near it, and mention my skin. I want to give credit where credit is due. Skinceuticals is an amazing line, and I cannot recommend this product more highly. It is expensive, but I have found it to last a very long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why does everyone love this so much? Here is my experience: 1. It goes bad super quickly. I had it less than a month when I started to smell a metallic smell on my skin after application. Thankfully, I am using it on more than just my face, so I have already used quite a bit. Metallic smell probably means it oxidized and is no longer effective. Its stupid glass dropper packaging is probably the problem. They need an opaque airless pump system. 2. Its smell is fine (until it goes metallic, but that's still not a terrible smell). Why does everyone complain of the smell? I even sort of liked the smell. 3. It is a bad texture for layering with physical sunscreens. I thought maybe I should buy the Skinceuticals sunscreen in case that would solve the problem (they recommend them together), so I bought UV Fusion. It pilled even worse than with my regular sunscreen (Elta MD) and left visible gross filmy stuff on my face. Yuck. Maybe it's because I have dry skin. I did not get this from other serums. Elta MD does not give me this effect alone. 4. I almost spilled it multiple times. I have quick reflexes because I'm the clumsiest person ever, so I learned to adapt. If you do not have quick reflexes, you will be sorry to waste such an expensive product. I only used one bottle, so I can't comment on efficacy if

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for correcting dark spots! I love this vitamin C serum so much and my wallet hates me for it. Seriously this is so expensive but it’s the only vitamin c serum that has actually lightened my dark spots. It works quick too, I couldn’t believe it, within 3 days two of my major darks spots were already considerably faded and overall skin tone was so much more even. Like my skin is on its way to flawless thanks to this bad boy. I’m also using alpha arbutin and niacinamide so I’m sure that amped up the effects but STILL. It’s amazing. I’ll repurchase for as long as I can afford it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good product but, It is so expensive. I don't think the product is worth the price, although I am mostly happy with the results. I have struggled for years with blackheads all on my nose. This is really helping with making them disappear
