Clinical Data

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.

1 PROTOCOL: 12-week clinical study conducted on 55 female subjects ages 45–60 (USA, 2013). Percentages reported are average results.

2 PROTOCOL: a 4-day double-blinded clinical study was conducted on the back of 15 female subjects aged 18-40 years. During the 4 consecutive days, the back test zones were treated daily with or without C E Ferulic, followed by with and without 2 hours of PM and 5 minutes of UV daily exposure. Skin samples were collected for 4 hydroxynonenal (4HNE) protein analysis at the end of the study. Sunlight interacts with oxygen or molecules in skin to form free radicals. C E Ferulic does not contain sunscreen.

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.

This pure form of vitamin E neutralizes free radicals and replenishes skin lipids. It has been proven to act synergistically with vitamin C.

A plant-based antioxidant, ferulic acid neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of vitamins C and E.
In the morning, apply 4-5 drops to a clean and dry face, neck, and chest before other anti-aging skincare products.

Skinceuticals CE Ferulic FAQs

Upon breaking the plastic seal and opening, C E Ferulic should be relatively clear to pale yellow. Due to the active ingredients inside of the formula, the product will begin to darken in color over time. Please note that this does not mean the formula has become ineffective.

It is normal for SkinCeuticals vitamin C products to darken after opening due to air and light exposure. A deepening of the serum from light golden to darker orange is expected, normal and does alter the effectiveness. The formula will remain effective. Once opened, with daily application of 4-5 drops to face, neck, and chest, it is recommended to be used within 3-6 months after opening.

Unless otherwise indicated by your BACD provider, C E Ferulic should be the first step as part of your morning regimen while a retinol or retinoid should be used as one of the final steps of your nighttime regimen. There is not typically a conflict when using both within the same daily skincare regimen.
