It is considered as one of the most potent antioxidants out there! It is wonderful when paired with vitamin C and E! A 2005 research study discovered that adding in 0.5% Ferulic Acid to a 15% Vitamin C + 1% Vitamin E solution not only stabilises the highly unstable Vitamin C, but it also doubles the photoprotection abilities of the formula.
