Visible results

Protocol: A 16-Week clinical study conducted on 50 Caucasian male and female subjects aged 40 to 60 years old. C E Ferulic showed visible results on aging attributes of lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity while improving skin redness, texture, and overall brightness. For controlled results, subjects used SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser and Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 daily, and Emollience moisturizer as needed.

Pictures here represent average results of our clinical study. Individual results may vary. 


Science & proof

SkinCeuticals research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, perform synergistically to provide superior results to any single antioxidant formulation.

Mentioned extensively in peer-reviewed scientific journals, C E Ferulic is a vitamin C serum formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. The Duke Antioxidant patent ensures effective delivery of vitamin C to skin. In order for a vitamin C serum to be effective it must be formulated with pure l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) at an acidic pH within the 2.0-3.5 pH range and have a concentration between 10-20%. SkinCeuticals is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters.

All SkinCeuticals antioxidant formulations have been tested in final packaging and have been confirmed to remain stable and effective for 36 months, and up to 6 months after opening. L-ascorbic acid (pure vitamin C) is known to change color with time, however oxidation is minimal in SkinCeuticals antioxidant and the formulation is proven to remain effective.

    Expensive but best vitamin c serum

    1 person found this helpful

    This is such a wonderful serum. The application is straightforward but you need to always put on sunblock before stepping out. This serum has helped brighten my Asian skin tone tremendously! My skin looks better now than ever before in my entire life! Pores and lines have minimized exponentially. My freckles and uneven skin tone have disappeared. Acne scars are gone. I love love love it! This is really the best vitamin c serum I have tried. Those who are complaining that it leaves a sticky feeling on the skin... It goes away after you apply moisturizer and sunscreen. Don't skip moisturizer!!! I've only used this product for about 1 month and since then I have received countless compliments on my skin. Strangers, especially women, would come up to me to tell me that my skin looks fabulous!). I feel so bad for the women who experienced severe burns to her face after using it under the sun. I have never sunbathed with his serum but I been exposed to the sun and have never experienced anything close to skin irritation. I always wear sunscreen even when I am indoors. But everyone's skin reacts differently so we should definitely take caution. Another word of advice to you ladies out there-- If you want good skin, don't sunbathe---at least not for too long. Your skin will thank you especially after hitting 30's and beyond! Never get lazy with sunscreen!

    Best Vitamin C Serum

    1 person found this helpful

    I bought this because of all the amazing reviews and I'm super skeptical about everything. I use this along with and the combination of the two has done miracles for my skin. I'm concerned about fine lines and loss of volume around my smile lines. This has seriously improved my fine lines and wrinkles. Not so much restored fullness but I'm trying fish collagen for that. The consistency is super lightweight if you allow it to penetrate it won't leave a sticky feeling also I spray toner before putting it on. A couple of drops go a long way. Overall worth the price.

    No other vitamin C serums like this one

    I researched many vitamin C products for skin and tried a couple bestsellers from top stores before finding this. Yes, it's a little more of a splurge than others but that's for good reason. Plus, you only use a little so you're truly getting a lot of bang for your proverbial buck on (concentrated vitamins and ingredients and benefits without the things you don't want distilled into a bestselling serum). A SkinCeuticals convert, I recently came back for the H.A serum and one of the eye creams. Go for it. You'll be glad you did. I saw improvement in a short amount of time and got comments from family and friends and have continued to see and feel its multiple benefits. This truly feeds and nourishes your skin at a cellular level.

    Best Product Ever

    I've been using CE Ferulic for only about two months now, but I have seen a dramatic improvement in my skin including its brightness, texture, softness, and appearance of lines. If I had to recommend one product to my friends (and I have) it would be this. I've already bought a batch for my mum and will continue using this for the long haul. I've tried tons of other products out there including Creme de la mer, other Vitamin C serums and this has made the most dramatic difference. I definitely have very fair skin where everything is visible and this product just does wonders.

    Amazing product with amazing results!

    I love using this every morning. My skin feels protected and nourished. I have noticed I wake up to smoother, softer skin and it goes easy underneath my tinted moisturizer. I love the added protected and the science behind your line. I can't get enough and rave to my friends about this line!

    I'm Addicted

    CE Ferulic was recommended by my dermatologist and I have been using it for years now. I have tried other cheaper Vitamin C serums but nothing feels as good as this one. I feel that it has helped with my fine lines and wrinkles as well as fading old acne scars. I wish I had found out about this product sooner.
