By now we all know that vitamin C is a powerful skincare ingredient, and that this antioxidant—which occurs in nature—protects against free radicals, from UVA and UVB rays, infrared radiation, pollution, and other environmental aggressors. We know that it works to build collagen, reduce pigmentation, and brighten the skin’s complexion (among other things), and that typically, the most effective way to deliver vitamin C deep into the skin is with a serum.
Now, when you think of vitamin C serums, chances are you think of SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. This award-winning product truly is the gold standard—the G.O.A.T., if you will—of vitamin C serums, and today we’re getting to know her on a deeper level (skin pun very much intended).
SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic: the ingredients.
C E Ferulic is a daytime vitamin C serum, and it’s really the star of the SkinCeuticals lineup of products (which is saying a lot considering all of their products are amazing). It features a blend of synergistic ingredients that work in tandem to deliver advanced environmental protection and visible anti-aging skincare results:
- 15% L-ascorbic acid, a highly potent form of pure vitamin C, neutralizes free radicals, protects against oxidative stress, and provides visible anti-aging benefits.
- 1% alpha-tocopherol, a pure form of vitamin E, neutralizes free radicals and replenishes skin lipids.
- 0.5% ferulic acid, a plant-based antioxidant, neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of vitamins C and E.
SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic: the research.
Almost more impressive than the product’s effectiveness is how thoroughly it has been studied and tested. C E Ferulic launched in 2005 after 40 years of academic research, and today, is backed by over 20 international, peer-reviewed, dermatological research publications that speak to its efficacy and safety.
Of course, research is key when developing any skincare product, but it can be especially crucial in the development of vitamin C serums. Vitamin C, particularly L-ascorbic acid, is a highly potent antioxidant that by its structure has difficulty being effectively absorbed by skin. SkinCeuticals holds a patent outlining the formulation parameters required for effective delivery of vitamin C to skin, and is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters.
