What is Ferulic Acid?
Ferulic acid is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory active ingredient of plant origin. High concentrations of Ferulic Acid are found in rice, wheat, oats, pineapple, beans, artichokes, nuts and most fruits and vegetables.
Also known as Hydroxycinnamic Acid, Ferulic Acid is one of the most powerful antioxidants available, an anti-inflammatory that protects against external aggressions such as pollution, UV rays, as well as internal aggressions such as stress.
This is why Ferulic Acid is nicknamed the new « natural Botox ».
Hydrated and elastic skin
A unique and little known of Ferulic Acid is its ability to promote the synthesis of collagen and elastin. It provides your skin with the intense hydration it needs to be healthy and radiant. It also firms and improves its elasticity, giving it a more youthful appearance. Our skin will be at its best to fight against the external agents that surround us.
But Ferulic Acid is not only an antioxidant, it also helps to brighten and even out the skin by neutralizing dark tones and pigmentation spots thanks to its ability to inhibit the enzyme tyrosinase, which produces melanin.
