Is your vitamin C serum meeting your expectations? If not, it may be due to an absence of ferulic acid.
Ferulic acid is an antioxidant that can have a major impact on your anti-aging regimen. The organic compound is a hydroxycinnamic acid which is abundant in cell walls of plants such as oats and rice.
When added to a vitamin C serum, ferulic acid has the power to discourage photo aging, also known as sun spots, and can protect against skin cancer.
Ferulic Acid and Your Skin
Ferulic acid is a powerful ingredient that enhances the functions of vitamin C serums. In a 2004 study, it was found that ferulic acid is a more effective antioxidant than alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and beta-carotene.
Duke University researchers also found ferulic acid, when combined with vitamin C and E, to be particularly useful in preventing sun damage. While highly useful, vitamin C skincare serums containing ferulic acid are not so easy to come by.
At Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we offer Vitamin C 20% with Ferulic Acid serum from Dr. Sylvia Skin Care range for aging skin.
Vitamin C 20% with Ferulic Acid
Our Vitamin C 20% with Ferulic Acid serum contains antioxidant ingredients used in the skincare industry for their skincare properties. Various antioxidants combine and interact with one another on a deeper level to create a more youthful appearance.
The vitamin C serum also enhances free radical fighting properties to create a potent product that combats oxidative stress, provides unsurpassed hydration, and offers skin lightening benefits. Dr. Sylvia’s Vitamin C, B, E serum with ferulic acid is idea for oily, mature, sensitive, and normal skin.
Vitamin C, otherwise referred to as ascorbic acid, plays a major role in the collagen production process. When collagen is stimulated, the body is able to create a thicker skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The serum not only works as an effective wrinkle treatment for saggy skin, but also as a skin lightener for age spots and other types of hyperpigmentation. The serum also contains vitamin E, and much like vitamin C, the ingredient protects the skin from age spots and scarring. Studies have found that combining vitamin E and vitamin C is much more effective than using either nutrient on its own.
When applied topically to the skin, ferulic acid acts like most other antioxidants in that it helps slow down the natural aging process. When combined with nutrients like vitamins C and E, the advantages of the product are multiplied.
As you age, it’s normal for your skin to experience damage caused by sunlight, collagen loss, pollution, chlorine damage, lack of sleep, over-consumption of alcohol, cigarette smoke, and similar environmental factors.
Using a product like the Vitamin C 20% with Ferulic Acid serum can help counteract the natural signs of aging for skin that looks younger and feels healthier. Contact our skin specialist in Singapore today to learn more about our vitamin C serum with ferulic acid.
