Cosmetic Active 2 (INCI: Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, ethyl ferulate, polyglycetyl-5 trioleate, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, water, disodium uridine phosphate) combines ethyl ferulate and carnosolic acid from rosemary to combat ROS and counteract indirect DNA damage and mutations.
As a result of our phytochemical studies on fruits, flowers, and leaves of Cp, we successfully isolated one new lignan 7'-methoxy-3'O-demethyl-tanegool-9- O-[beta]-D-glucopyranoside (1) and five known compounds, methyl ferulate (2), rosmarinic acid (3), methyl rosmarinate (4), methyl 4-O-[beta]-D-glucopyranosyl ferulate (5), and pinoresinol 4-O-glucoside (6), for the first time from the flowers; four known compounds, [beta]-sitosterol (7), lupeol (8), lupeol-3-O-acetate (9), and calotropagenin (10), from the leaves; and the flavonoid glycoside kaempferol 3-O-[alpha]-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1 [right arrow] 6)- [beta]-D-glucopyranoside (11) and syringaresinol 4-O-glucoside (12) for the first time from the fruits.

Decreased lignification, decreased ferulate cross-linking between lignin and arabinoxylan, and decreased frequency of highly lignified structural cells are all potential mechanisms for genetically increasing PSRI (Casler et al., 2000).
Comments: Ethyl ferulate, as the ester type of ferulic acid, has powerful antioxidant, free radical scavenging and UV adsorption properties.

We have recently demonstrated that cycloartenyl ferulate, one component of [gamma] - oryzanol, also prevents allergic inflammation (Oka et al.
Active 2 (INCI; Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, ethyl ferulate, polyglyceryl-5 trioleate, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, water, disodium uridine phosphate) protects cells and DNA.
These results suggest that ferulate cross-linkages between arabinoxylans and lignin may be more important in regulating genetic variation for digestibility than the concentration per se of these constituents (Jung and Deetz, 1993).
Sodium ferulate has been reported to have a beneficial effect on adjuvant arthritis treatment by reducing the level of IL-15 and IL-23 13] and to have a curative effect on RA by influencing the expression of serum VEGF and TNF-[alpha] [14].
