C E Ferulic

How is SkinCeuticals committed to becoming more sustainable?

SkinCeuticals is committed to looking for ways to improve the sustainability profile of our formulas and ingredient development by aiming to follow these principles:

  • Reduce our water footprint index
  • Source more renewable ingredients
  • Increase biodegradability (of rinse-off formulas)
  • Minimise our packaging through continuous optimisation and innovation and greater use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.

Published in many peer-reviewed scientific journals, C E Ferulic is a vitamin C serum formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. The Duke Antioxidant patent describes effective delivery of vitamin C to skin. In order for our 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%.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No comparison - the best of the best I’ve been using CE Ferulic for years and could not live without it - bouncy, glowing skin and noticeable changes if I cut it out- now whenever I meet my friends (who I have recommended it to) we all sit there admiring each others SkinCeuticals glow!! One thing I would say is because of the vitamin e it is not suitable for breakout prone or oily skin and in my combination skin period (spring/summer) I tend to swap it for Phloretin CF as it is oil free. In terms of oxidising mine definitely lasts a good few months just make sure to keep it in a cool place and screw the lid back on properly! Was also advised to not touch skin with pipette :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A noticable difference in my skin I started using this product in the middle of 2017 and within a couple weeks and, although expensive, I noticed a significant difference in my skin. Wrinkles seemed reduced and my skin appeared smoother with more evn skin tone. It also combines both Vit A and Vit E in to one product. The consistency is quite runny so can be tricky to get used to applying without wasting any until you are used to it, but it is not sticky and absorbs easily. Of all of the skin porducts I have tried over the years, this has got to be one of my top 5. Worth the hype and the price tag, I will continue to use going forwards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wary at first, but won over When I first used this I was quite surprised at the thinness of the liquid. I was - rather daftly - expecting a lovely smelling and luxurious creamy serum. This however, has the consistency of a toner. It was easy to apply and dries almost instantly on the skin making it fine to apply other lotions and make-up afterwards. After a week my husband asked me if I was using a new cream because he thought I looked well... He really never says stuff like this! I do think it has plumped and firmed my skin, so it gets a thumbs up from me. I'm also happy to report that a little goes a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticed the difference straight away Just had the product over a week now and my skin looks glowy and feels really smooth. I'll be 52 in a few months and wanted to up my skin regime and make sure my skin looks good when my daughters get married in the coming years. I did intense research as I was paying a lot for a small bottle with big promises, so had to make sure I chose right. One always thinks these reviews are made up, but I can honestly say I'm impressed. The product doesn't smell it's a perfect consistency and so far so good. I have sensitive skin at times, so was slightly worried I would react, however the product has won me over. Although I've only recently started using the CE Ferulic, I'm thinking if this is what it's done for me in 10 days, I cant wait to see the results after a month. Try it, because it'll be worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazing at first but oxidised so, so quickly! I finally splurged on this product because I had heard so many wonderful things about it from so many sources. I'm 30 and have pretty good skin, no lines/wrinkles or discolouration but I wanted something to really amp up the the glow and create a very smooth texture. Initially, the serum had remarkable, dare I say unprecedented effects. 12 hours after I applied it the first time my boyfriend, who is not the most observant, remarked on my incredible, glowing, youthful skin! Then everyone began complementing me. However, after a couple of weeks I noticed that serum was oxidising very, very quickly. After a month and a half it turned an orange/amber. I was using the product everyday on my face, décolletage and backs of hands and I had hardly made a dent in the bottle. I am willing to spend money on expensive, high quality, effective products but I expect them to last longer than a couple of months. I'm not sure what went wrong, if this is typical or perhaps i just, unluckily, purchased a faulty bottle? I found this to be quite upsetting as CE Ferulic was a product I had rapidly grown to rely on and initially, really loved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever!!! I’ve been using this product for 5 years now. It was originally given to me by one of my clients who has amazing skin. She had bought several bottles from her beautician as she loved it, and kindly gave me a bottle to try as she knew I was really into skin care. As soon as I tried it I knew I was going to like it. I love that slightly sticky texture that makes my makes my skin glow, not to mention how well my make up sits and lasts after using it unde my moisturiser. My skin not only looks more youthful but it also prevents my skin breaking out! Since using this product people tell me I look much younger and I swear it’s pausing the aging process!! I’ve tried cheaper options that beauty bloggers have suggested but quite honestly, i’m Happy to invest in the real deal as I don’t think you should take short cuts when it comes to your face. Highly recommend!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good product which delivers what it promises. I trialed this product over the Christmas period when skin takes a bit of a bashing- cold weather, central heating, sugary food and alcohol. Normally I would end December with crepey under eye skin and breakouts. Not this time! My skin looks clear, plumped and healthy. Two friends have even commented on it (a first). I wore it under a moisturising serum and had to use less serum than usual. The only slight downside is that it doesn’t work well under foundation. Or not for me anyway. It caused my foundation to slightly “peel off”. Otherwise a brilliant product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great texture but oxidised very quickly I bought this products after many recommendations and reviews from the dermatologist, it is great and i love the texture however I am not sure if it is save to use anymore, it turned amber colour after only a month of use and i stored it in a dark place as advised. What is the expiry of this product? I read somewhere that it looses its benefits when it discolours. I would love to continue to use this product but to go through such an expensive product in a month is not very efficient and very expensive indeed.
