Ferulic Acid: A Novel Antioxidant
Posted by Sharmani on December 19th, 2011
Ferulic acid, as found in apothekari Phloretin + C Antioxidant Serum, works to protect skin from free radical damage associated with aging and UV exposure.
A plant extract, ferulic acid has three main benefits for skincare:
- It is a powerful antioxidant on its own, protecting cells from UV damage and neutralising free radicals. Studies have linked ferulic acid to liver and breast cancer prevention.
- It works to stabilize vitamin C, which, though it is a well documented antioxidant itself, can actually release free radicals into your skin if it breaks down too much.
- It enhances the effectiveness of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and Vitamin E.
Find Ferulic acid in apothekari phloretin + C Antioxidant Serum, which is ideal for oily and combination skin. Its effects can be enhanced by using it in conjunction with apothekari Hydrate + B5 Gel, which boosts your skin’s natural moisture barrier. If your skin is dry or normal, you may prefer apothekari Antioxidant C + E and Serum, which also contains ferulic acid.
