BEFORE & AFTER
SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic is a revolutionary topical antioxidant combination that provides unprecedented 8-times the skin’s natural photoaging protection. Culminating more than 10 years of research and testing, this antioxidant breakthrough contains the original potent formulation of 15% pure l-ascorbic acid and 1% alpha tocopherol
“However, the addition of Ferulic Acid – a plant-based antioxidant – has transformed the formula, doubling performance of the already powerful combination”
This synergistic formulation provides unmatched protection against UV induced erythema, free radical formation, and cellular damage that results in premature skin ageing
DAILY APPLICATION OF THIS CUTTING-EDGE SERUM, ALONG WITH THE USE OF A BROAD-SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN, OFFERS ULTIMATE PROTECTION FROM UV LIGHT AND ASSOCIATED SKIN DAMAGE
Erythema is a marker of environmentally-induced free radical inflammation. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, provides superior protection against this damage at three times minimum erythema doses (3X MED). Protocol: 23 subjects with five randomized test sites received application of test products for four consecutive days followed by UV-irradiation up to 3X MED at 1x MED intervals. Measurements were taken two hours after application. C E Ferulic was tested in two cells; its weighted average is indicated in the quantitative data above. Competitors were five leading global competitor formulations sold in the professional channel, that claim high concentrations of vitamin C (between 10-20% were selected to test).
Sunlight exposure generates oxidative stress in skin that can result in photodamage, including photoageing and skin cancer. The body uses antioxidants to neutralise oxidation of nucleic acids, proteins and lipids; but protection achieved by oral ingestion is limited (Placzek et al, 2005)
To augment antioxidant protection, we have developed and reported three generations of topical antioxidant formulations, each with progressively better protection against solar-simulated radiation
The current formulation contains physiologic antioxidants, vitamins C and E, stabilised by a potent
plant antioxidant, ferulic acid; optimised for chemical stability, percutaneous absorption, and photoprotection (Lin et al, 2005).
