Skincare serums often have more than one beneficial ingredient included in them. Like with our ferulic acid serum, we have both Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, among others. While serums tend to have fewer combinations than thicker products, consumers usually want to know what to expect and if they should discontinue certain products. So, does ferulic acid contain retinol?
Our ferulic acid serum does not contain retinol. You may be able to find one that does, but it is rare. This is largely because it is best to use the two products separately and at different times of the day. Ferulic acid is perfect for layering under your makeup in the morning. While it is best to use retinol at night because it can make your skin more sun sensitive.
You can use both ferulic acid and retinol, but you should avoid layering them. While it is unlikely to cause a major reaction, it could cause some minor irritation and ultimately it is not best to use them right after one another.
