Ferulic Acid
CAS No. 1135-24-6

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 solutions 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.

We have been experiencing a disrupted ferry service schedule this week that will continue for another week at a minimum. The effect of this change in scheduling is that some UPS shipments may be 1 day longer to be delivered than usual. This especially affects expedited services like UPS Next Day, 2nd Day and 3 Day Select. This is a situation beyond UPS' control and they will NOT honor refunds for late delivery caused by the ferry service delays. We apologize for this inconvenience beyond our control.
