Ferulic acid and hyaluronic acid are both ingredients found in many skincare products and can bring many benefits to the skin. While they can be used in combination, the two acids are quite different. Let’s take a look at a few of these differences and how they can work together. Here’s your complete guide for ferulic vs. hyaluronic acid.
First off, both ferulic acid and hyaluronic acid can be found naturally, but in completely different environments. Ferulic acid is largely found in the cells of plants, including many fruits. It helps protect the plants from the damaging effects of the sun and environment, while still getting what they need from those sources. In contrast, hyaluronic acid is found in the body, mostly in the eyes and joints.
Beyond their sources, ferulic acid focuses more on anti-aging and forming a protective layer on the skin. If used in too high of concentrations, it can irritate the skin and those with sensitive skin should use caution. Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, is used in many moisturizers and is a humectant, which means it draws moisture to the skin. It can safely be used in higher concentrations. Though, anything above 2% likely will become too drying. When compared to other acids, this is much higher.
