The Best Anti-Aging Antioxidant Product
Skinceuticals C E Ferulic is a revolutionary topical antioxidant combination that provides unprecedented 8 times the skin's natural photoaging protection. C E Ferulic contains ferulic acid, a new antioxidant that doubles the synergistic benefits of C E - neutralizing free radicals, building collagen, and providing improved antioxidant protection. No other antioxidant technology has been shown to deliver comparable levels of photoprotection.
Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Benefits:
- Maximum anti-aging results - better than any one antioxidant alone
- Neutralizes free radical damage and protects against oxidative stress - the factors that lead to premature aging, loss of elasticity, and hyperpigmentation
- Once absorbed, can't be washed or rubbed off - excellent for use in conjunction with sunscreens
- Photoaged or Photodamaged skin
- Dry or sensitive skin, poor skin elasticity
- Beginning 30 days before and/or 7-10 days after invasive or non-invasive procedures
The Latest Research Shows:
- SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic provides more photoprotection than single antioxidant skincare technologies.
- SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic provides 8x photoprotection and unprecedented anti-aging benefits.
- SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic reduces sunburn cell formation up to 96% in UV irradiated skin.
- SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic prevents the formation of thymine dimers, sun induced DNA mutations associated with skin cancer.
Why Is Photoprotection Important?
Sunscreens play an important role in protecting skin from UV damage. SkinCeuticals always recommends using a broad spectrum sunscreen for optimal protection. However, photoprotection and sunscreen protection are not the same. SPF is a measure of UVB protection only. Photoprotection is a measure of a product's ability to neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative stress. This oxidative stress can be caused by both UVA and UVB exposure and leads to premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and loss of elasticity.
Recent Studies Reveal We May Not Be As Protected As We Think:
- People don't apply enough sunscreen to achieve full SPF. Real-life application of an SPF 20 sunscreen yields an SPF of only 3 to 4.
- Even when applied properly, sunscreens only block 55% of free radicals.
- Considering what we now know about sunscreens, photoprotection is more important than ever.
Erythema, Sunburn Cells, and Antioxidants
Measuring protection from erythema and sunburn cell reduction in skin after UV exposure is widely considered to be a good indicator of antioxidant strength. This data is used to assign levels of photoprotection to antioxidant formulations.
SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic prevented the formation of erythema even at levels of UV exposure exceeding 8 MEDs, therefore providing 8x photoprotection. Due to resulting erythema after exposure of 2 and 4 MEDs, other technologies were not tested at higher levels of UV exposure.
SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic reduced the formation of sunburn cells up to 96% at 2 MEDs of UV exposure. In a separate study, Idebenone was shown to reduce the formation of sunburn cells by 38% at 1.5 MEDs of UV exposure.

I've tried a few Vitamin C serums. This one is nearly perfect, except for a couple of flaws. First, the smell is terrible. I understand this is possibly because of the ferulic acid. It smells like cured meat, but ithat smell doesn't seem to last very long. The other issue is that I would appreciate a little more viscocity. However, it is far from the runny mess at least one other other serum in this category is. It is a good product, with good ingredients.

As a person with rosacea and sensitive skin I was very skeptical about using an antioxidant. This product calms my skin and gives it a beautiful texture. Also, now I have the freedom to be outside again. With this product and a Skinceutical sunscreen, I can be outside without worrying about sunburning. It is amazing. Be sure to follow C E ferulic with the hydrating gel. If you have very problematic skin the high price is worth it.

For what this serum cost, I didn't find this product to be any better than those in the $40-60 range. I was using it primarily for my hyperpigmentation/melasma as well as reducing red marks from blemishes. It was good at reducing red marks but only OK for pigmentation. Daily use seemed to make my skin look parched and I had to reduce to every other or third day of using. I personally wouldn't spend that much money again for this product. I used this product for 4 months consistently and I gave the remainder to my mom in hopes that maybe she'd have better results (she still prefers another brand sold at Skinstore). Positive-a little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly w/o film afterwards.
Once in the morning after cleansing, apply 4-5 drops of Skinceuticals CE Ferulic to a dry face, neck and chest. Follow with a moisturizer and sunblock. Daily application of this cutting-edge serum, along with the use of a broad-spectrum sunblock, offers ultimate protection from UV light and associated skin damage.

SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic
The best defense against aging skin is the combination of powerful antioxidants which help to repair and prevent damage from both internal and external aggressors. SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic contains both Vitamin C and ferulic acid for an unbeatable weapon in the war against aging. The serum absorbs quickly into the skin, delivering a powerful formula that reduces the instance of future damage while also helping to diminish the effects of past damage. C E Ferulic can help to boost the effectiveness of a daily sunscreen, allowing skin cells to better defend themselves against the elements.
SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic helps improve the look of sun damaged skin that is uneven, blotchy and experiencing poor tone as well as loss of elasticity. Regular use of SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic can help soften dark spots, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles in addition to significantly improving skin tone, firmness and texture.
Because C E Ferulic absorbs quickly, it will not interfere with makeup or moisturizers. Once the product is fully absorbed, the skin is ready for other products such as hydrators, sunscreen and makeup. For best results, SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic should be used consistently every morning. Results are cumulative with continued use.
