What is Ferulic Acid and its benefit?

You all know that Vitamin C and Vitamin E are powerful antioxidants that help skin brightening and anti-aging and have excellent pigmentation reduction effects! So, I won't explain more about these two ingredients.


So what is Ferulic Acid?

One of the most exciting ingredients in skin care. This plant-derived antioxidant is widely found in grains, coffee, spinach, parsley, orange, apples, grapes and other vegetables and in the cell walls of fruits, it maintains skin health and improves skin structure and complexion. Sadly, it's quite expensive so it's not widely used in makeup, but if you can afford it, it's definitely worth the money. But we do have an early bird discount for everyone...


Ferulic acid is a strong antioxidant. Most oxidants can only resist one kind of free radicals (free radicals, which are the main cause of premature aging), and ferulic acid can destroy three kinds of free radicals: superoxide (superoxide), hydroxyl radical (hydroxyl radical), Nitric oxide (nitric oxide). While ferulic acid is effective on its own, it works even better with vitamins C and E, which help stabilize vitamins C and E and enhance their antioxidant properties. “


Ferulic acid is a potential brightening ingredient. When used with vitamin E, ferulic acid can be used as a whitening ingredient to treat pigmentation, inhibit the production of melanin, and indirectly inhibit the activity of tyrosine hydroxylase. Products containing ferulic acid. There are not many products containing ferulic acid on the market and the content is low. Generally, the amount of ferulic acid added in cosmetics is between 0.1% and 1.0%. In some European and American products, it is even added to 3%. Of course, the accompanying stimulation not too low. The reason is also very simple. On the one hand, ferulic acid is expensive, and on the other hand, it is difficult to preserve activity and requires high technical requirements.


If you pay attention to see that there are several big brands that put this ingredient, the price is quite expensive, and they do not put more ferulic acid. L’eaine Powerful Strength Vitamin C Essence uses a lot of vitamin C with very little vitamin E and even less ferulic acid.


Overall, ferulic acid is a powerful, plant-based antioxidant that can help fight aging, prevent photodamage and even treat hyperpigmentation. While it is also effective on its own, when it is mixed with vitamins C and E it enhances their stability and effectiveness. However, it should be noted that when choosing such whitening products, you should choose products containing ferulic acid, rather than products with its sodium februate or ferulic acid esters. Because that affects the activity and efficiency of ferulic acid.
