Vitamin C, E & Ferulic Acid Serums

Each Anti-Oxidant on its own, is a powerful healer to skin blemishes & anti-aging. However, when combined the anti-oxidants work in unison, delivering the desired results much quicker. Apart from this, Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic acid) is unstable in solution, Ferulic Acid & Vitamin E provides the stability required for Vitamin C to have a longer shelf life and remain effective for longer.

Studies show the effect of each Antioxidant on its own, and when these ingredients are combined to the ultimate formulation of Vitamin C, E & Ferulic Acid. Ferulic acid alone absorbs some UV and therefore is itself a weak sunscreen. Topical application has been shown to protect the skin from UVB-induced erythema. When mixed with vitamin C and vitamin E, ferulic acid stabilizes the formulation and acts synergistically to double the photoprotection from fourfold to eightfold [Karen E. Burke, in Skin Aging Handbook, 2009]

Ferulic Acid ….

Ferulic acid is an antioxidant found in the cell walls of plants such as rice and oats and the seeds of apples and oranges, where it plays a key role in the plants’ protection and self-preservation. What is it used for? When applied topically, ferulic acid acts like other antioxidants in that it helps to slow the ageing process by reducing the effects of damaging free radicals on the skin.

It is also thought to protect against sun damage, as well as assisting in skin’s regeneration functions to tackle skin that has already been over-exposed. In addition it has the benefit of working well alongside other antioxidants, enhancing the stability and the efficacy of vitamins C and E
