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.

A must -

I am currently using retinol from the same brand and living in miami requires extra protection. I use it under my sunscreen and my skin is looking great. No sunburn, no sun spots, I'm not even wearing foundation anymore.
SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic
Not for me -

I have tried 2 different SkinCeutical serums but neither one worked well with my oily/combo skin. They were recommended by my dermatologist's assistant since I suffer from brown spots and an extra layer of protection would be wonderful. Unfortunately, my face breaks out and I feel like I'm wearing a mask. My Lancme foundation (which I absolutely love!!) doesn't wear as well and it doesn't blend into my skin. I really wanted to love this product, but I think I will be going back to Philosophy or The Body Shop.

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.
