Caffeic Acid is multifunctional. It has antioxidant and brightening functions, which can be used as a preservative in cosmetic products.

The mechanism of brightening function of caffeic acid is primarily based on the following two facts:

1. The chemical structure of caffeic acid is very similar to L-tyrosine.

Therefore, caffeic acid can be degraded by tyrosinase to become a competitive inhibitor against melanin.

2. Caffeic acid can inhibit melanin production by inhibiting the signal path between tyrosinase and MITF (microphthalmia-associated transcription factor).
