Why Ferulic Acid Needs to Be in Your Skincare Routine


by Chantal McCulligh March 30, 2017

Despite the term ‘acid’ typically having a negative connotation attached to it, Ferulic Acid is one skincare ingredient you shouldn’t fear. While the general rule is ‘If you can’t pronounce the skincare ingredient it probably isn’t very good for you,’ this only applies to skincare ingredients that aren’t natural.

Despite sounding all chemically toxic, Ferulic Acid is 100% natural. It’s a safe and effective skincare ingredient that can be found in the top premium skincare brands. So, as the old saying goes, ‘Never judge a book, or rather, bottle by its cover’. Here’s why everyone needs some Ferulic Acid in their skincare routine.

What is Ferulic Acid, Anyway?

What a great place to start. We highly recommend never buying premium skincare or anything type of beauty product without first knowing what it’s made of. Ferulic Acid is one of the best antioxidants you can have within your skincare routine.

It comes from the seeds and leaves of different plants, with the most common ones being wheat, oats and rice. These three ingredients are incredibly calming for your digestive system and the same can be said about the effects it has on your skin.

Ferulic Acid can also come from things such as coffee, apples, artichoke, pineapple, oranges, and peanuts. But don’t worry, we confirmed with our premium skincare lab that our ferulic acid beauty products are not derived from peanuts. So, if you have an allergy there’s no need to worry. More importantly, if you do have an allergy and are considering other premium skincare brands, make sure they know where it comes from. Ferulic acid should provide you with a clean, effective, and safe skincare experience instead of one that makes you break out in hives.

But regardless of where it comes from, Ferulic Acid is an antioxidant that has power beyond what most people believe can be found in a bottle.

What Does Ferulic Acid Do?

Now that you know what Ferulic Acid is, it’s time to learn what it does for your skincare. Since it is a powerful antioxidant, it is the anti-aging God. Ferulic Acid has the ability to destroy a vast array of free radicals, from hydroxyl radical, nitric oxide, superoxide – you name it. And yes, these free radicals are just as dangerous as their names suggest.

The skincare benefits don’t end there either. Ferulic Acid also has the ability to protect your skin against various cancers, menopausal symptoms, and bone degeneration. When paired with Vitamin C and Vitamin E, it enhances the effects of your premium skincare, as the Ferulic Acid prevents the vitamins from becoming ineffective. Talk about synergistic capabilities!  As such, you can find this combination of skincare ingredients in a bottle of our Ultimate Ferulic C & E Serum.   

What Does Ferulic Acid do for the Skin?

You’re likely wondering why this is important to your skincare. Well, to put it simply, free radicals are the root of all evil when it comes to damaged skin cells, aging, discoloration, wrinkles, fine lines, etc. 

When combined with Vitamin C and Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid has shown to double the protective capacity of the skin. So, not only will it treat your skincare concerns but this skincare ingredient will also prevent them from coming back.

That’s also not to mention that it’s very hard for your skin to receive the benefits of Vitamin C from other skincare creams because it's one vitamin that oxidizes quickly once opened to the air. The Ferulic Acid prevents the vitamin from oxidation, which allows you to actually get what you pay for.

 

If you haven’t been seeing results from your skincare routine, you need Ferulic Acid in your life. Our Ultimate Ferulic C & E Serum has everything you need in it to receive powerful results. It’s 100% natural and safe, and just as effective. Prepare to be amazed. That’s all we have to say. Ferulic is about to become your favorite “F-Word”.
