  • Visible Results

  • before
    after

    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

Lauded for its superior antioxidant benefits, this highly potent form of pure vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative stress while providing visible anti-aging benefits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny My dermatologist recommended CE Ferulic and I’ve been using it for about a year now. My doctor said that bear minimum for anti-aging you need a good vitamin C serum, sunscreen, and a retinoid. I trust Skinceuticals to be high quality, the large CE Ferulic bottle lasts me several months and doesn’t turn brown (oxidize). I find I only need three drops of serum when I apply it directly to my face (one at the top center of my forehead, one on each temple). The drops roll down my face while I screw my serum lid tightly back in place and then I can blend/pat it into my skin. It doesn’t interfere with my other skincare/makeup as it soaks into the skin quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a huge difference I'm about 2/3 through with my bottle after using it most mornings and I've noticed an incredible difference in fine lines and overall skin tone. I'm a graduate student on an extremely limited budget but an ounce of prevention is cheaper than a pound of cure, so this product (that costs about as much as my monthly grocery budget) will stay in my skincare routine. There is a slight smell of the concentrated vitamin C because the product doesn't contain perfumes. I'm glad it doesn't, and the vitamin C smell is hardly noticable! Perfumes are irritating to the skin and contain volatile chemicals that could undo the anti-oxidant effect of the product. SkinCeuticals, please keep this product exactly as it is. I think the previous reviewer might be misinformed. I think the product is supposed to be amber colored, that is not a sign of oxidation. I have noticed no change in my product after 2-3 months siting on my bathroom shelf and it is totally effective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NASTY SMELLING! I’ve never smelled something so disgusting in my life, there is no way I’m putting this on my face! I don’t understand these other reviews saying they love it, etc ......I just can not get past the smell. I’m literally gagging right now just thinking about it. Maybe I received a bad bottle?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oxidized before I finish half the bottle Product worked as advertised, but the price absolutely cannot be justified for how quickly it oxidizes. Once it changes to a burnt orange/brownish color, the vitamin c has oxidized no longer effective. This happened to me within 3 months. There were no directions or warnings about how quickly this product may oxidize/what to do when it does (throw it away), and I wish I would have known this before purchasing. Cannot recommend such an expensive product for the ~3 months of skin benefits you would get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have staple in my skincare routine This is my second bottle and I can say that I will never go without this product. I have noticed a big difference in my skin tone as far as brightness and evenness goes. I use it right after the Skinceuticals hyaluronic acid serum and follow with the triple lipid moisturizer and it's the absolute perfect combo. I am fair skinned always struggling with redness and these products really have made a difference in the overall appearance of my skin. Always use sunscreen with this product! I absolutely love the Skinceuticals products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Question about the scent I'm new to using Skinceuticals, so I'm currently using a sample size. So far I've loved the way it has made my skin feel, but the scent smells like smoked BBQ to me. Is that the scent complained about in other reviews? Is that the normal smell?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pungent smell I started using just recently and like how my skin looks, but the smell is quite strong and pungent. Is this normal?
