  • 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

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.

I was in hunt for a serum which helps in increasing firmness as the early i use the better my skin will look and delay the process of aging. It kinds of give a hydrating effect also. Its working amazing fir my skin. I thing this is one of the must skin care every one should indulge in. I always prefer spending on good skin care rather than makeup. Bcoz if your skin is flawless. So will your make look flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visible improvement! I've been using C E Ferulic for about a year, and intend to continue! I'm a pale natural redhead, and the skin on my neck had aged to reddish and crepey. After about a month, that skin was an even tone, and was much smoother. The lines around my mouth have improved, too, but they weren't as bad to start with as my neck :). Great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unsure I received this about a week ago. I feel that this has been breaking me out. I’m not sure if that’s normal when you start using vitamin C? Or if just this specific product is not for me and I should try the other vitamin c serum available? I agree with most of the reviews I read that it does get tacky. It doesn’t happen all the time and for me that feeling goes away pretty quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bottle was not sealed. I called customer service and they couldn't give me a clear answer if the bottle was supposed to be sealed or not. It had a plastic wrap only around the lid and was not attached to glass bottle. No seal was broken to open container. I am concerned to use it because I'm not sure if it's been contaminated..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from C F Ferulic FOREVER I have always taken extremely great care of my skin. I have used many products of great quality on my skin but after purchasing this product several weeks ago, I can tell the difference in the appearance of my skin and the smoothness. I don’t care how expensive this product is. You get what you pay for. I won’t cut corners when it comes to something I’m going to be wearing until I skin.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells horrible I used for the first time last night. It smelled so awful that I gagged while applying it. A strong smoky smell. My kids both noticed it when I kissed them goodnight! I don’t think I can use it again. Do yourself a favor and buy a different brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells like smoke This review is on the smell of the product. As I just started using this I can't tell if its working yet. I opened the bottle and it smells like the other reviewer says. Smoke. After, patting it on with my hands. I can smell it from my face and palms. I don't want to wash my hands since I have the product on it. However, my palms smell smokey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product, but very smokey smell This is my second bottle and while I like the results from using it, the smell is very overpowering. My first bottle did not have a smell at all, but this is just plain unpleasant. Hoping my next bottle is back to being scent free!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hot dog water? Smells like hot dog water, there are plenty of natural oils you can blend with it for a better fragrance. Hence, my review is only based on the smell, not the product as I have only been able to sample it and have not used it long enough to see results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love! I have been reading the reviews on this product for a long time, and honestly didn’t think it was worth it for the money. I am mad at myself for waiting as long as I did. I have been using it now for 3 days and my skin is already smoother and softer. I have been a B5 lover for years and use that after this. I love the texture of my skin!!! I cannot wait to see the long term results but I already think this product is worth every penny! I was making my friends feel my face today!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works but expensive I worked in dermatology for years and the estheticians all swear by it. However, it smells like hot dog water and campfire. I personally cannot stand putting it on my face but I forced myself to get used to it. Anti aging properties are worth it!
