Rich in a potent antioxidant, Emblicanin, Indian Gooseberry (Phyllanthus Emblica) fruit extract is entirely free of pro-oxidation activity. While most antioxidants go directly from an active to a passive role, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract utilizes a multilevel cascade of antioxidant compounds, resulting in prolonging its antioxidant capabilities.

The cascade illustrates the chemical transformation of Emblicanin A (one of the essential compounds in Phyllanthus Emblica fruit) that occurs at a cellular level or on the skin during its antioxidant activity. As a result, it aggressively seeks and attacks free radicals, preventing aging processes.

Indian Gooseberry Fruit Extract is a powerful hyperpigmentation reducer. Different types of hyperpigmentation correlate with various factors and causes like genetic predisposition (freckles), diseases, pregnancy, or enzymatic deficiencies. They are mainly displayed by fair-skinned people and are related to red hair.

In a recent study with Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract, volunteers with freckles used a lotion with 1 % of this ingredient twice daily for eight weeks. Positive results were obtained in 17 out of 19 subjects. Results are expressed as an increase in lightness and ITA degree, a parameter for skin tone.
