Ferulic acid (FA) is found in the leaves and seeds of most plants, and in especially high concentration in the brans of grasses such as rice, wheat and oats.  It has strong antioxidant properties that make it especially useful in the formulation of anti-aging cosmetics.

Chemically reactive molecules known as free radicals are produced as byproducts of normal biochemical processes.  Once produced, they are capable of damaging almost any biological structure they contact.  Our cells are prone to free radical damage. In skin, this damage can be perceived as aging. 

Ferulic acid is excellent at neutralizing free radicals, especially the free radicals known as "superoxide", "hydroxyl radical" and "nitric oxide".  It also acts synergistically with other antioxidants to increase their efficacy.  Interestingly, Ferulic Acid's antioxidant activity is boosted by exposure to UV light, indicating it may be helpful in protecting skin fro sun damage.

Patent research indicates it may also stabilize topical soultions containing l-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) (see US Patent # 20050154054)

Although the safety of ferulic acid is well-established, having been consumed in grains and other food plants for thousands of years, effective usage rates of Ferulic Acid have not been determined. 

Our ferulic acid is a natural product extracted from rice bran oil.

This is a cosmetic raw material and is meant for external use only in cosmetic formulations.  As with all of our materials, it should not be taken internally.

The day I realized that topical vitamin C was causing my acne was the beginning of a long journey for me. Vitamin C is present is just about every kind of makeup and every face cream available on the market. LotionCrafters, with their amazing choice of products, and their detailed information has allowed me to create my own vitamin-c-free formulations, and have healthy skin once again.
