Everything you need to know about gallic acid

In the world of skin care, many ingredients are emerging for their exceptional benefits. One of these ingredients is gallic acid.

Known for its antioxidant and soothing properties , gallic acid deserves special attention.

Let's discover the benefits of gallic acid for the skin and how to integrate it into your skincare routine.

What is gallic acid?

Gallic acid is a natural polyphenol found in various plants, including green tea, nuts and some fruits. In cosmetology, it is valued for its powerful antioxidant properties, helping to protect the skin against damage caused by free radicals and environmental stress.

The benefits of gallic acid for the skin

Gallic acid offers multiple benefits for the skin:

  • Powerful antioxidant: It neutralizes free radicals, reducing signs of premature aging such as wrinkles and age spots.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties: It soothes irritated skin and reduces redness, making it ideal for sensitive skin.
  • Brightening effect: Gallic acid helps to even out skin tone and reduce pigment spots, providing a more luminous and even complexion.
  • UV Protection: Although it does not replace sun protection, it helps minimize damage caused by exposure to UV rays.

How to use gallic acid in your skincare routine?

Incorporating gallic acid into your skincare routine can be done in different ways:

  • Lotions: use a gallic acid-based lotion to benefit from its effects simply and effectively.
  • Serums and creams: Look for products with gallic acid as a key ingredient. These formulations allow effective absorption of the benefits of gallic acid.
  • Masks: Using masks enriched with gallic acid can offer deep hydration and conditioning, especially when skin needs a boost.
  • Combination with other antioxidants: Combine gallic acid with other antioxidants like vitamin C to maximize its protective and brightening effects.
