Spotlight: Vitamin C


Considered by many to be the pièce de résistance of a skincare routine, take some time to dive into the world of serums. Whether you have seven serums in rotation or have never touched one before, this guide will navigate you around our most highly rated serums.

Of all the serums on the market, the one ingredient on every beauty enthusiast's mind is vitamin C. Its fans can't get enough of the seemingly endless list of skin-perfecting qualities: from UVA/UVB protection, to improving the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, evening and brightening skin tone and boosting collagen levels. With six serums exploiting these benefits, SkinCeuticals is a source of authority when it comes to vitamin C. Get to know their three most popular vitamin C serums here.

Serum 10 gives all the benefits of vitamin C with a touch of hand-holding. Designed as an introductory product, it’s perfect for sensitive skin or for those new to vitamin C. The blend of 0.2% ferulic acid with 10% pure vitamin C gives it an effective yet gentle approach: delivering protection against photoaging and environmental aggressors, and reducing the appearance of premature signs of ageing.

For the more experienced, Phloretin CF could be the one. This miracle bottle is formulated with 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C and 0.5% ferulic acid. Don’t let the emergence of phloretin throw you off, it’s simply another antioxidant that neutralises free radicals and improves cellular regeneration. This new addition and the higher concentration of ferulic acid makes this serum considerably more potent than Serum 10. Suitable for normal, oily and combination skin types, Phloretin CF delivers impressive results.

Packed to the brim with actives, C E Ferulic is the crown jewel of vitamin C serums. The formula of 15% pure vitamin C, 1% vitamin E and 0.5% ferulic acid makes it the most potent of the three, offering protection that is eight times the skin's natural defence. Empowered by the high concentration of vitamin C and the pure form of vitamin E, this serum stands apart in its ability to neutralise free radicals and replenish skin lipids: protecting, moisturising and restoring the skin with dramatic results. Recommended for use on normal to dry skin, the C E Ferulic serum is a SkinC favourite.

To get your share of the many benefits of Vitamin C, there's no better place to start than SkinCeuticals. Experts in the field, SkinCeuticals have been crafting these formulas since the launch of Serum 10 in 1997. Over twenty years later and they are still leading the way with new and innovative antioxidant serums.
