What Is Ferulic Acid?

Ferulic acid is a plant-based antioxidant found in the cells of rice, oats, apples and oranges. And if you’ve been reading Science and Skincare for any amount of time you should know what an antioxidant does but in case you don’t antioxidants protect against oxidative stress.

What does this mean for your skin?

Ferulic acid’s main benefits come from its work as an antioxidant.

This means it helps protect from environmental stressors that cause skin ageing. UV and pollution have a huge impact on your skin that can leave you with fine lines and pigmentation. Hence, because ferulic acid works against these stressors it can help to even out skin tone and make the skin more smooth.


Ferulic acid is gentle enough to be used daily and it is recommend to be used in the morning, as the daytime is when you’re more likely to come into contact with environmental aggressors.
