  • 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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Price My daughter requested this product as a gift one Christmas and swears by it. She told me that she realized how good the product was when she stopped using it and saw her skin change for the worse. I decided to give it a try. The product provided visible improvements in skin tone. Also, I have sensitive skin and this product caused no irritation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 product in my Arsenal I’ve been using this product for 5 years now and truly can’t live without it. At first the price tag was a bit of a shock and the burnt popcorn scent made me a little skeptical, but the IMMEDIATE RESULTS couldn’t be ignored. The impact this product continues to have in my skincare routine far outweighs the less than desirable aspects of it. I know some people out there question the varied color of the product wrt oxidation and integrity, but I’ve had bottles ranging from pale yellow to an amber-ish orange and the results haven’t differed one bit. The only time I notice bad results is when I run out of this product before I’ve restocked! Seriously, my skin is addicted to it and for good reason. I’m in my early thirties, my skin tends to be dry and sensitive, my pores are larger than normal, and the signs of aging have started to set in with fine lines and wrinkles. Beyond that, I’ve struggled with acne my entire adult life so I’m no stranger to bad breakouts and leftover scarring. When I say this product works, I mean it! It has visibly improved all of my problem areas - keeping my acne at bay, evening out my skin tone, firming up my natural laugh lines, shrinking the size of my pores, and giving my face an overall smooth, silky, plump and hydrated feel and appearance. I absolutely love this serum and I’ve yet to find any other product on the market that can give me the same kind of results with such little effort. Use this serum daily as part of your morning routine, use periodically on it’s own for a quick pick me up to even things out and brighten your complexion, or layer it on with other serums and products as part of a “treat yo self” at-home facial. And one last tip: watch the video on how to best apply the serum. That may sound silly but it really made a big difference for me - not just in how the product set in, but also in how much of it I needed to use! Buy this, use this, and you will not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Darker color from the first day Hello. I am really happy to try this vitamin C Serum. I bought It at The Skin Spot online page, but the color is darker than It looks at your video. Its like amber from the first time I opened It (Today). I was expecting It to be light yellow. I am scared of not receiving my 15% vitamin C. I would like to know if I am still getting the vitamins or if the product is at least less effective (less than 15%) when It has the amber color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yellow color I realize Skinceuticals says a dark yellow color is natural for this serum, but every other source out there claims it is an indication of oxidation. Why is Skinceuticals the only site that refutes this? I pay a lot of money for this and don't want a product that is no longer effective. I would like to hear an explanation that actually gives some hard data supporting why this product has not oxidized when it turns dark yellow. Thanks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted it to work but its not... I have been trying this on my dry skin for about 4 weeks and have noticed, I'm breaking out with some painful pimples, at first I thought it was purging or mask acne.. but after 3 weeks of using it I realized it might be this serum so I gave it a rest, and let those painful pimples heal, went back to the serum in 2 weeks time and I started getting tiny pimples once again, I don't understand as to why this does not work .. Thought maybe you guys will help me. My routine: Cleanser Toner Ferulic acid serum mineral sunscreen

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Came orange I think that it is to expensive for what it does. Mine came in and was a little orangish brown right from the beginning. I could have been given a bad batch and maybe that why it did not make a difference for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REMARKABLE I found this product by trail and error about 10 years ago and WOW. Its the first thing I put on in the morning after washing my face and the change in my skin was almost overnight.Over the years my dermatologist has recommended products to use but this one product has stayed consistant in her recommendations and one product that will never be out my facial rotation! I may change moisturizers and cleansers depending on what time of the year it is but never this product. It does what it says it does.
