Ferulic acid has phenolic acid structure, is a weak acid organic acid, but also with a variety of strong antioxidants (such as resveratrol, vitamin C, etc.) synergistic tyrosinase inhibitors, both can whitening antioxidant, and can prevent inflammation and multi-effect products.
Ferulic acid powder, like many phenols, is an antioxidant in the sense that it is reactive toward free radicals such as reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS and free radicals are implicated in DNA damage, accelerated cell aging.
Ferulic acid was originally found in the seeds and leaves of plants. It is a phenolic acid widely present in plants. It combines with polysaccharides and proteins in the cell wall to form the skeleton of the cell wall, and rarely exists in free form. It has a high content in Chinese medicinal materials such as Asafoetida, Cohosh, Angelica, and Jujube seed, and is one of the effective ingredients of these Chinese medicines. Ferulic acid is present in edible plants such as onions and yellow chrysanthemums. The content of ferulic acid in food materials such as husks, coffee, wheat bran, rice bran, bagasse and beet meal is also high.
Key Technical Parameters:
|Appearance||Almost White Crystalline Powder|
|Loss on drying||≤0.5%|
1.Ferulic acid has strong anti-oxidation and scavenging ability of free radicals. When ferulic acid matches with vitamin C+E act, it can increase the ability of vitamin C+E to resist the sun from 4 times to 8 times, in order to further protect the skin from UV rays when exposed to the sun.
2.Whitening effect: ferulic acid has the similar structure with tyrosine that affects melanin activity in the skin, so it can prevent the formation of melanin in a competitive blocking way and protect the skin from UVB damage in ultraviolet rays.
3.Ferulic acid is an effective light stabilizer with anti-phototoxic effect and is widely used in sunscreen products;
4.Ferulic acid can form esters with polyhydroxy compounds to improve water solubility, such as glycerin, cyclodextrin esters, etc., antioxidant and ultraviolet Absorption function remains unchanged.
1.Applied in Pharmaceutical field,ferulic acid powder is mainly used to anti-bacteria, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and anti-mutation.
2.Applied in cosmetic field, ferulic acid powder is mainly used as raw materials with the function of anti-oxidationand anti-ultraviolet radiation.
