INCI name: 

Ellagic Acid


  • MinaSolve

Elage (Minasolve) is a 100 % nature identical and nature-derived skin lightening agent. It is a highly pure grade of Ellagic Acid; a polyphenol naturally occurring in fruits, such as strawberries, raspberries,  blackberries, pomegranates, walnuts and chestnuts.

Elage slows down / inhibits the skin from over-producing melanin. It evens out the skin tone and reduces age spots caused by melanin-related hyperpigmentation. As a result, the skin appears brighter and more uniform. 

The efficacy of Elage has been confirmed by in-vivo clinical studies and in-vitro instrumental testing. Elage has an excellent safety profile and is non-cytotoxic.

Its influence on the skin tone is 100% reversible. The natural skin tone returns completely, once the application is stopped.

Elage is supplied as a powder and is recommended for use up to 1% concentration.  It may be used in a wide variety of facial skin care and makeup formulations.
