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 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.

Yukiko, (Musashi The Bee)

We had a small problem with our recent order and called customer support today. They apologized profusely for the issue and said they would call back with a resolution. They called back quickly with an excellent resolution. I absolutely couldn\'t be more happy with them. If they carry what I need I will NEVER buy it from anyone else. I am sold on LotionCrafter!

Truly outstanding customer service and products! Orders are always packed meticulously well, and Lotioncrafter can be counted on to ship with lightning speed each and every time.
Karen Rysavy, (Re-Dew Body Products)

I just wanted to say that from my very first time ordering from lotioncrafter in 2014 & now 2016 this company has been consistently amazing. I have never had an issue with anything at all. Every order is shipped promptly (without paying ridiculous fee) ingredient information is readily available (not hidden), quality is unquestionable, and should you need to contact someone you will get a response immediately ...only thing I could cry about is I wish they carried serecite, pigments, sci, smc taurate, ... etc so I could only order from them...which is unreasonable on my part. Truly a reputable high quality supplier
