Product Description & Benefits:
This complex of Ferulic Acid Esters is extracted from rice bran oil. The name ""oryzanol"" comes from Oryza sativa (rice). The chemical structure of this complex gives it biological properties similar to those of ferulic acid but it is easier to dissolve. Add gamma Oryzanol to your favorite cream to easily make a fantastic antioxidant, photoprotective (protects the skin against UVB-induced erythema), and cancer preventive cream.
This skin care active ingredient is made by a licensed, high-quality laboratory of skin care ingredients. Make Me Heal has partnered with leading laboratories and manufacturers of skin care ingredients to come up with the largest assortment of high-quality active ingredients that are effective for your skin. These ingredients are backed by scientific research and testing.
What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?
DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
