Antioxidants in Rice Bran Oil: Oryzanol, Ferulic Acid and Tocopherols

 

" Rice bran oil contains alpha, beta, gamma and delta-tocopherols; the powerful antioxidants commonly known as vitamin E."

 

Rice bran oil is a good source of antioxidants, particularly oryzanol, ferulic acid and tocopherols. These powerful antioxidants protect our body's cells from free radical damage. Free radicals can cause oxidative stress and inflammation that may lead to the development of some diseases including cancer, heart disease and accelerated ageing.

Skin is the largest organ in our body that protects us from pollutants, toxic chemicals and other harsh elements in the environment. Antioxidants strengthen the skin's defence mechanism and prevent premature ageing.

The Three Major Antioxidants in Rice Bran Oil

1. Oryzanol (Gamma Oryzanol)

Oryzanol (gamma oryzanol) is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. It has been reported that oryzanol lowers the risk of skin cancer while also reduces hyperpigmentation.

2. Ferulic Acid

Ferulic acid is a phytochemical with high antioxidant activities. It neutralises free radicals and prevents oxidative damage in our body and skin. Oxidative damage causes the appearance of wrinkles, lines and other signs of ageing.

Beside the antioxidant activities, ferulic acid has anti-inflammatory, soothing and UV protection properties. It reduces skin sensitivity and helps prevent UV-induced skin damage. Therefore, ferulic acid is beneficial for all skin types including easily irritated skin.

Ferulic acid is one of the main antioxidants in multi-award-winning vitamin C serum, Antioxidant Youthful Essence. Formulated with l-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5, this all skin types face serum protects the skin from free radicals, pollution and photoageing. Apply it to freshly cleansed skin every morning and evening to promote a radiant complexion and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and dark pigmentation spots.

 

" This is amazing! I noticed a difference round my eyes after the first application. My skin felt tighter and firmer after just a couple of days."

3. Tocopherols (Vitamin E Complex)

Rice bran oil contains alpha, beta, gamma and delta-tocopherols; the powerful antioxidants commonly known as vitamin E. Vitamin E protects skin cells from oxidative stress, UV radiation and other ageing factors. It also has soothing and nourishing effects on the skin.

If your skin suffer from dryness or it is in need of an extra nourishment, gently massage 4 to 6 drops of an ultra nourishing face oil like Bio-Collagen Face Oil into the skin. This luxurious anti-ageing facial oil has been formulated with vitamin E complex, coenzyme Q10 and rejuvenating botanical essences including squalane, rosehip, sea buckthorn, macadamia and rice bran oils. It is highly recommended for perimenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal skin. During and after menopause, the skin's renewal process continues to slow down. After the age of 50, it may take up to 84 days for the skin to regenerate itself while before it only takes between 28 and 42 days. Coenzyme Q10 energises skin cells and promotes cellular activity to boost the skin's renewal process.

For best results, face oil should be applied after face serum and before moisturiser. Alternatively, mix a few drops of face oil with a small amount of moisturiser in your palm then gently massage into the face and neck. Always remember to moisturise the skin on the back of the neck and ears too.
