Elage ECOCERT is a well known whitening agent. It inhibits the enzyme thyrosinase, which is part of the melanin production cascade.
This active ingredient is a nature identical molecule, occurring in pomegranates and berries. However its extraction does not allow reaching a sufficient assay to formulate it in cosmetics.
Consequently Minasolve developed an ECOCERT process that provides a min. 98% quality to solve cosmetics formulation issues.
Ellagic acid is considered to be more efficient than Kojic acid.
Additionally, Kojic acid seems to cause mutations in animal cells, which could lead the authorities to limit its use.
Consequently more and more customers are now switching to MinaCare Elage, anticipating regulatory changes.
The Hallym University in Korea also demonstrated that the MinaCare Elage has a significant anti-wrinkle activity.
