Pomegranate extract (90% Ellagic Acid from Pomegranate Rind), is high in antioxidants; polyphenols and proanthocyanidins. These antioxidants target free radicals, boost collagen production, even skin tone and plump up the skin. A pomegranate extract (PE) from the rind containing 90% Ellagic acid was tested for its skin whitening effect. PE showed inhibitory activity against mushroom tyrosinase in vitro, and the inhibition by the extract was comparable to that of arbutin, which is a known whitening agent. PE, when administered orally, also inhibited UV induced skin pigmentation. The intensity of the skin whitening effect was similar between those that consumed PE and those that consumed L-Ascorbic Acid. PE reduced the number of DOPA-positive melanocytes in the epidermis, but L-Ascorbic Acid did not. These results suggest that the skin whitening effect of PE was due to inhibition of the proliferation of melanocytes and melanin synthesis by tyrosinase in melanocytes. PE, when combined in the Yllume formula allows for a significantly strong and effective oral whitening agent for the skin.
