We obtained many things from nature. Of course, the nature gift lots of usful active ingredients. For example, Ferulic acid. Gradually，natural ferulic acid begins to use in beauty and cosmetics fields. And it has transfused new vitality to the rapid advancement of the modern cosmetics industry because of its functions of whitening, dispelling freckle and protecting skin from sun. Let's take a closer look at the specific role of ferulic acid in the cosmetics industry:
1.Whitening: Lysinase is the most critical enzyme for melanin production of melanin. Ferulic acid `s structure is similar to tyrosine. Therefore, it can inhibit the formation of melanin by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase through compete with tyrosine. Meanwhile, It can also inhibits the activity of melanocyte B16V to achieve whitening effect.
2. anti oxidanting：Ferulic acid has antioxidant and free radical scavenging effects. The theory is: the free radicals in the skin interact separately with vitamin E , vitamin C, and next, glutathione acts on the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP). These processes requires a lot of antioxidants, and these ingredients work independently. Ferulic acid is a powerful weapon that unites antioxidants against free radicals. It can promote the body to produce glutathione and NADP. When used in combination of vitamin C and E, on one hand it can maintain the stability of vitamins C and E, and on the other hand it can double the antioxidant capacity of vitamin C and E.
3. Sun-protecting：The most widely used natural sunscreen ingredients are vitamins and polyphenols. As an acid phenol. ferulic acid molecular structure contains double bonds and phenol, which has a certain resistance to ultraviolet rays. Ferulic acid is a sun screener so that it can effectively absorb UVB in the wavelength range of 290nm-330nm. But ferulic acid will be very unstable after exposure to ultraviolet light. It needs to be stored in the dark, and it should be taken care of when using it during the day.
4. Health caring: Ferulic acid is extracted from plants (mainly from Angelica, Chuanxiong), and some are from wheat. These are all edible and safe herbs. In addition, ferulic acid can be excreted from the urine after being absorbed by the body, and will not accumulate in the human body and cause the cumulative toxicity.
5. High security: Ferulic acid is extracted from plants (maily from Angelica, Chuanxiong), and some are from wheat. These are edible and safe.
