Our skin is constantly being bombarded with air pollution, ultraviolet light, and infrared rays. Exposure to these free radicals opens pathways for them to attack healthy cells–what we refer to as “oxidative damage.” As a result, our skin can become dry, wrinkled, and show further signs of premature aging. Luckily for us, there’s a solution–antioxidants. A natural ingredient in our Eminence Organic products is Botanical Ferulic Acid. Ferulic acid is a naturally occurring antioxidant derived from plants and seeds that acts as a power booster when combined with other ingredients.
Combining Botanical Ferulic Acid with Other Ingredients Magnifies Overall Strength
Vitamin C and E are already powerful antioxidants. Vitamin C helps protect the skin against damage from UV rays by decreasing cell damage and helping to heal wounds. Vitamin E keeps the skin conditioned to prevent dryness and acts to reduce inflammation. When ferulic acid is added to vitamin C and E, the efficacy and activity of the vitamins increase for greater results.
Another powerful combination is botanical ferulic acid and niacinamide (also known as Vitamin B-3.) Niacinamide helps to lock in hydration and boost cell-building proteins in the skin to combat oxidative damage. Products containing niacinamide help minimize redness and uneven skin tones, strengthen the lipid barrier to help cells retain moisture, shrink pore size, and regulate oil production. When niacinamide and ferulic acid are combined, the mixture helps to brighten the skin and even out texture.
Why should you choose products containing botanical ferulic acid?
You likely don’t realize how much exposure to free radicals your skin has, but pollution combined with UV and infrared rays may be creating fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sagging. Using botanical ferulic acid regularly serves as a shield to protect your skin from harmful free radicals and skin damage.
Select our Eminence Citrus and Kale Potent C+E Serum to add botanical ferulic acid to your skincare routine. This lightweight serum is perfect for all skin types and simply requires 3-4 drops to be applied to cleansed skin once or twice daily. The combination of ingredients is designed to deliver antioxidants to help brighten your skin, improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of free radical damage. Kale is another rich source of antioxidants to help improve skin elasticity and hydration for younger-looking skin.
