Inhibitory Effect on Tyrosinase Activity and Ultraviolet Induced Pigmentation

Pomegranate extract,also known as Punica Granatum, has been extensively used in traditional medicines in many countries. It is especially rich in Ellagic acid, a naturally occurring polyphenol that possesses strong antioxidant properties. Ellagic acid has shown inhibitory activity in melanogenesis by suppressing tyrosinase activity, and it also inhibits the proliferation of melanocytes and melanin synthesis. This also meant that it will reduce the formation of dark pigments on the skin.

According to the clinical study, when Pomegranate extract is administered orally, it can be used as an effective and safe whitening agent for the skin.

Inhibits the activity of tyrosinase (the main enzyme of melanin production), which then prevents the formation of dark pigments.

Strong antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals caused by environmental aggressors and also help in enhancing skin whitening
