The name “ferulic acid” may sound like something you do not want to put on your skin, especially since traditional acids are known to burn and damage the skin. It is understandable that patients may be apprehensive of using something with “acid” in the name of skincare. Our experts dive deeper into the question, “Does ferulic acid burn?”
The technical answer is that it can. Any acid used in skincare could potentially damage or burn the skin. However, in our ferulic acid serum and skincare serums on the market, any acids are not in a high enough concentration to cause burns or damage the skin beyond exfoliation.
With that said, applying too much serum at once or using it too much can certainly dry out the skin and potentially cause damage. Additionally, people using ferulic acid or other acidic skincare products should make sure to wear sunscreen every day to protect against sun damage. Though, unlike other skincare acids, ferulic acid helps protect against the sun.
