FERULIC ACID EXPLAINED
Ferulic acid is a potent anti-aging ingredient. In addition to the benefits highlighted above, when combined with vitamin C and vitamin E in our C E Ferulic®, ferulic acid benefits include helping to improve the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and skin-discoloration. This topical antioxidant serum with ferulic acid has also been proven to reduce combined free-radical damage generated by ozone pollution, and diesel engine exhaust by up to 41%.
Ferulic acid and retinol play valuable roles in any skincare routine since these ingredients have completely different actions on the skin. Ideal for morning use, ferulic acid has a myriad of anti-aging benefits. Retinol is ideal for nighttime use to promote cellular turnover that helps keep fresh cells on the skin’s surface and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and skin texture.
Ferulic acid and niacinamide can definitely be used together in most any skincare regimen. Antioxidant ferulic acid benefits differ from those of niacinamide, which is used to help reinforce the skin’s barrier and reduce the appearance of discoloration and blotchiness.
Using this ingredient at night will not harm your skin, but application at this time does not take advantage of the primary ferulic acid benefits. As a potent antioxidant, ferulic acid helps neutralize free radicals, pollution, and other environmental factors that skin is exposed to during daytime hours.
Ferulic acid is safe and suitable for acne-products skin, and is one of the main ingredients in Silymarin CF. This SkinCeuticals topical vitamin C serum is formulated specifically for oily skin and features known ferulic acid benefits such as shielding the skin from damaging free radicals and enhancing the activity of silymarin and vitamin C, the other antioxidants found in this formulation.
