Product Details

C E Ferulic features a synergistic antioxidant combination of 15% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), 1% vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), and 0.5% ferulic acid to enhance protection against environmental damage caused by free radicals that can contribute to atmospheric aging. This vitamin C serum helps neutralize free radicals induced by UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA), and ozone pollution (O3), which may lead to visible signs of accelerated skin aging. In addition to antioxidant protective benefits, C E Ferulic improves signs of aging and photodamage, the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and the loss of firmness, while brightening skin's complexion.

  • Provides advanced environmental protection by neutralizing damaging free radicals
  • Visible anti-aging benefits, such as the improvement of the appearance of lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and brightens skin’s complexion
  • Neutralizes free radicals on the upper layer of the skin to help prevent the impact of ozone damage to skin
  • Once absorbed, this vitamin C serum remains effective for a minimum of 72 hours
  • Paraben-free and ideal for normal, dry, and sensitive skin types
  • Tested suitable for use post-laser, always consult with a physician for individual post-procedure care

How To Use

In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other anti-aging skincare products.

Complete your regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens provide protection against visible aging caused by environmental aggressors.

  • 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.

Key Ingredients

  • 15% L-ascorbic acid
  • 1% alpha tocopherol
  • 0.5% ferulic acid

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Haven’t seen results I spent a good deal of money on this serum and my nurse injector for Botox highly recommended it. I can deal with the odor if there are results, but I’m just not seeing them. Maybe the other serum is what I need.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Serum Is Very Dark I usually buy my skinceuticals products from dermstore, but I bought this from bluemercury because of a coupon code. This is my first time purchasing this product. The serum is very dark and the reviews say that it's supposed to be clear. It's making me think that the product is defective. I just purchased it, so I can't give a review on the effectiveness of the product. I'll come back in a month to give a product review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best thing I’ve ever put on my face. Got a sample of this in a beauty box a while back and didn’t think much of the little brown bottle. Eventually decided to try it not thinking it would do much like the other serums I’ve tried. Put a few drops on my face and it smelled like smoked meat, I thought it expired or I got a bad batch. Decided then that I wasn’t going to use it again. Throughout the day I noticed my skin was more radiant than usual and I liked it. I finally looked up the product and saw it consistently had mostly 5 star ratings. Wow, ok, and apparently the smell was normal for this product. Kept using it every morning until the bottle was finished and I fell in love. Saw how much it was and I cried inside, it was far out of my budget. Finally gave in and bought full size and not once did I regret it; money well spent. My acne scars have faded thanks to this serum, texture improved, and my skin is glowing. It absorbs instantly into my skin, and I can attest it’s great for oily skin. My skin is too young to notice any aging benefits, but at 26, it’s a good time to start preventative skin care. This is the first thing I put on my face every morning after washing, and I’ve grown to really like the smell. I can’t be without this serum and I have no idea what I would do without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Used to use this product line years ago. Purchased from my dermatologist. The best product line I've ever used. It's quite expensive but well worth it. Disappointed it's no longer available in my area. Amazon has it but returned it because it was old. When the product is dark Brown in color it's old, does not have the potency of fresh dated product. Would only purchase again if I could by locally. So I could actually see the product before purchasing.
