  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product. Worth the hype & $$$$ I am a bargin shopper who loves skincare. I am in my late 40s and spend a lot of time in the sun. This product is the most amazing product I've ever used. It reduces fine lines and evens out skin tone. It's very very expensive but truly works wonders. Also, it does have a bit of an off smell but you get used to it and I am very sensitive to smells.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Please offer SMALLER SIZE I agree with the other comments: it goes bad very fast. You can clearly feel the difference between a fresh product and the one that's been opened for a couple of months. It's not only changing color, but it stops working the way it did. Please please offer a smaller size! I absolutely love it when it's fresh, but I always have more than half a bottle left when it goes bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best skin care decision of my life! I was first introduced to CE Ferulic in my early 40s. I used it for years so I didn't realize just what a difference it was making. Then I stopped. Over time I saw dullness, dryness, and wrinkles develop and didn't put that together with the change I had made in skincare. I was using a lot of other high-end skincare lines, spent way too much $$$ - and they just didn't help. Well, I'm back - and what a difference. I had good skin in my 40s and was keeping it that way. Now, I'm in my 60s, and the dramatic improvement in skin tone, evenness, texture after just two weeks of CE Ferulic has convinced me that this is the best skincare regime available. I'm a lifer for Skinceuticals and CE Ferulic now. Thank you for making a product that really works at any age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is wonderful I know this is expensive, but it really really works to improve and protect skin in general- tone, texture, even hydration. On the days I miss using it for some reason, I can tell. I look tired and like I haven't washed my face. As long as I can afford this... I will continue to use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, wish it came in a smaller size Ok so listen. This is the one product in my regime I know for a fact has an impact on my skin. Sis my skin is bright ok! I absolutely love what this does. HOWEVER, there's no way to use this stuff before it goes bad. I noticed after 5 months it turned deep orange (which means it's no longer good) but I literally have enough product left for 4 more months. PLEASE offer this in a smaller size. Plan to rebuy for the results but this'll probably be my last time because of the size issue

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but WHEW! The smell. So this product seems to work well, if it were solely based off that I’d give it 4 stars (minus 1 because it’s not perfect). BUT in order to desire to use this, other things go into play. I don’t have the best sense of smell, so me saying this.. take this will full effect. The smell is HORRENDOUSLY strong. Almost smells like bacon bits but a liquid version? It. Is. Potent. So potent that despite this being a possibly great product, the scent is detrimental to the repurchase for me. Its very disappointing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Please offer smaller sizes! I love this product. I definitely notice brighter skin. Does it work better than other Vitamin C products on the market? I'm unsure, but I'm willing to spend the money on skincare so it is what it is. But Vitamin C expires in 3 months and I never get through the whole bottle (or even half the bottle) before I have to throw it away. Which means I literally just throw away so much of this extremely expensive product. It's very frustrating. Maybe if you plan on using it morning & night you'll get through it, but I only use it in the morning. I wish they offered smaller sizes. Until then, I can't get myself to repurchase this product knowing how much product goes to waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it I am over 30 doing my best to fight the signs of aging. I am very regimented about my skincare routine and I feel this product is the most powerful in my entire arsenal of skincare products. My sister is a nurse that works for a dermatologist and will go to her grave arguing that this is the best thing you can do for your skin. I have done the research and read the studies and also agree. It is true that it is very expensive and I struggle to pay for this item, but ultimately I believe the expense is worth it because I am getting the best product on the market.
