From it’s humble origins, Rice Bran Oil, Ferulic Acid is considered by some to be a super-antioxidant. As an antioxidant, the benefits of Ferulic acid help to neutralize harmful free-radicals that are present in the environment, which when incorporated into topical skincare formulations, helps protect your skin against oxidative stress, to keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful.
Ferulic Acid works synergistically with Vitamin E, combining to provide your skin with an excellent free radical scavenging boost.
When your skin takes a beating from outside factors, such as the sun’s ultraviolet rays, air pollutants, ozone, industrial chemicals, cigarette smoke, radiation, pesticides or internal factors such as normal essential metabolic processes, your body can produce free radicals.
Free radicals are atoms with an uneven number of electrons, and when they form inside your body, they steal electrons from healthy cells like the ones that make up your skin. This can cause a damaging chain reaction, and that’s where antioxidants like Ferulic Acid and Vitamin E come in, to lend a helping hand… or in this case, a helping electron.
