You might have heard of tips like keeping your skincare products in the fridge to help them last longer, or other such advice meant to maintain the quality of products. Ferulic acid–unlike other skincare products–does contain preservatives or ingredients that help it have a longer shelf life. This makes the product more effective for your skin, but also more volatile to store. Our experts answer, “What is the best environment for storing ferulic acid?”
First off, ferulic acid is susceptible to oxidation. This is why any reputable ferulic acid will come in a dark colored, opaque bottle. This prevents oxidation from occurring and limits the amount of light that reaches the product.
Beyond this, ferulic acid is heat sensitive and needs to be kept in a cool environment. In most cases, room temperature is fine. However, there may be occasions where you may need to store it in a cooler environment to maintain the ferulic acid’s quality. In general, if you store ferulic acid in a cold, dark environment, it should remain shelf stable long enough to go through the bottle.
