Three active principles are interlocked: ethyl ferulate, a natural antioxidant with UV absorbing properties, neutralizes dangerous oxygen radicals and reduces the dose of UV radiation which penetrates the skin; camosolic acid, which combats free radicals--one of the main causes of DNA and cell damage; and uridine monophosphate (UMP), a biochemical precursor to the synthesis of nucleotides, supports the repair of DNA in the cell.
Resistance to 5-FOA can be achieved by blocking the pyrimidine pathway through mutational inactivation of orotidine-5'-monophosphate (OMP) decarboxylase which catalyzes the decarboxylation of orotidine monophosphate (OMP) to form uridine monophosphate (UMP).
