Ferulic acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid, an organic compound. 

Ferulic acid has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-ultraviolet radiation effects. Ferulic acid contains a highly conjugated system, which has strong absorption of 290~350nm ultraviolet rays. At a concentration of 0.7%, it can effectively prevent skin erythema caused by UVB. It is an effective light stabilizer and has anti-phototoxicity. Widely used in sunscreen products. It can promote the growth of polysaccharide bonds between cells, tighten the skin and tighten pores, and is suitable for loose and aging skin. Ferulic acid has broad-spectrum antioxidant properties; ferulic acid also has the effects of activating skin, whitening, anti-inflammatory, and inhibiting allergies. Regarding safety: Modern studies have shown that ferulic acid can be absorbed by the human body and excreted in the urine in time, and will not accumulate in the human body and cause accumulated toxicity. In particular, ferulic acid is easily metabolized by the human body, has extremely low toxicity, and is relatively safe to use.

Ferulic acid is slightly soluble in cold water, soluble in hot water, easily soluble in ethanol, methanol, acetone, ethyl acetate, slightly soluble in ether, and hardly soluble in benzene. It can form sodium salt and has good pH stability. Ferulic acid is easy to decompose when exposed to light and has strong antioxidant properties.
