A plant-based antioxidant that is found in bran, among other plants. Research suggests that it provides antioxidant and sun-protective benefits to skin while enhancing the stability of topical applications of vitamin E (Sources: AAPS PharmSci Tech, June 2011, pages 514-520; International Journal of Pharmaceutics, October 2010, pages 44-51 and April 10, 2000, pages 39–47; Anticancer Research, September–October 1999, pages 3769–3774; Nutrition and Cancer, February 1998, pages 81–85; and Free Radical Biology and Medicine, October 1992, pages 435–448). As studies concerning this and similar compounds (such as caffeic and ellagic acid) continues, we will see more antioxidant-based products enhanced with them, which is great news for keeping skin healthy and protecting it from further damage.
