Ferulic acid is a potent plant antioxidant that has been finding its way into a variety of skin care treatments over the past few years. Found in the bran of rice, wheat and oats, it is also present in coffee, apple, artichokes and peanuts. In plants, it plays a key role in the plant’s self-preservation mechanism, helping to reinforce its cellular wall strength and protecting it from microbial and sun damage. When used as a topical antioxidant, ferulic acid prevents damage caused by free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are implicated in DNA damage, cancer and accelerated cell aging.

In skin care treatments, ferulic acid is included for not only its antioxidant capacity, but also for its ability to help stabilize Vitamin C, which is prone to oxidation. A study has shown that when ferulic acid was added to a combination of Vitamins C and E, that the photo protective capacity on the skin was doubled. Additionally, there is a small amount of research showing that oral supplements of ferulic acid can inhibit the production of melanin, thereby aiding in the process of skin lightening.

Daily Infusion Moisturizer
Lisa Rodger (Vancouver, CA)

Love this moisturizer. So soft and dewy.

Love, love, love!

I've only been using this serum for a couple of weeks and the difference in my skin is already noticeable. I have very sensitive skin and didn't have any irritation. I was able to use it daily from day 1. Love this product! It's going to be a staple in my arsenal from now on.

Works good but..

I have been using this deodorant for a couple weeks now and it works very well to keep door at bay. However it dries sticky and when I sweat it gets even more sticky. I will keep using fur a while to see if I can get past the sticky feeling, but not sure if I can. It’s too bad because it really does work.

Good customer service

Updated Review: Customer service reached out to me promptly and provided me with a refund. I was satisfied with customer service. Wish this product worked for me because prior to the rash it was great.

This worked for a few weeks and I started getting a painful red rash under my arms. I was about to purchase a set of 4 and I’m glad that I didn’t. I reached out to the company to inquire about what could have caused this as they claim to have products that don’t cause rashes. Of course no one ever replied. Will not purchase again
