What is phloretin powder?

Phloretin is a kind of flavonoid compound, which mainly exists in apple branches and leaves, apple fruit/skin, apple root/skin, litchi skin and other plants. This powerful compound has been the subject of extensive research due to its numerous health benefits. In addition to its antioxidant properties, phloretin has also been found to have anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, and immunosuppressive effects. It has also shown potential to promote bone formation, making it a valuable ingredient for internal and external health.

Phloretin can be directly absorbed by the human body, but in plants, there is very little natural phloretin, and phloretin is mostly in the form of its glycoside derivative – phloretin. The phloretin absorbed by the human body can enter the circulatory system after the glycoside group is removed from the gastric mucosa to form phloretin, thus playing its role.


Efficacy of phloretin:

  • Anti-oxidation, anti-free radical effect.

In the field of skin care, phloretin can activate cellulin kinase, which has an effect on cell disorder proliferation. It has strong antioxidant properties, and the antioxidant concentration of oil is between 10-30ppm; It can also effectively prevent sugar components from entering the epidermal cells, thus inhibiting the excessive secretion of sebaceous glands, so it has a good inhibitory effect on the secretion of acne; In addition, it can also inhibit the activity of melanocytes and have a desalting effect on various skin stains.

  • Slow down aging

The free radical theory of aging is widely recognized by the public, and the main means used to delay skin aging are mainly the use of external antioxidants to offset and mitigate free radical changes. The phenolic hydroxyl group in the structure of natural flavonoids can react with free radicals to form stable semi-quinone free radicals, thus inhibiting the initial stage of lipid peroxidation and terminating the free radical chain reaction. Phloetin is a flavonoid with dihydrochalcone structure,

with 4 phenolic hydroxyl groups, and its unique structure determines its strong antioxidant activity. Phloretin has good free radical scavenging effect and has good application value in cosmetics with anti-aging effect.

3. Whitening and light spot effect

The whitening mechanism of phloretin is mainly to inhibit the activity of tyrosinase in the body, and then reduce the production of melanin tyrosinase in the body. We know that phloretin is an important catalytic enzyme for the synthesis of melanin, and its inhibitory activity on tyrosinase is very high, and the effect is better than arbutin and kojic acid. The combination of phloretin and common tyrosinase inhibitors can greatly improve the inhibitory rate and achieve a 100% inhibitory effect. The inhibition of tyrosinase activity and whitening and synergistic activity of phloretin provide a new idea for the development of whitening cosmetics.

4.Anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects

With the increasingly serious air pollution, the incidence of sensitive skin has an increasing trend, and the cosmetics industry has gradually increased the attention to sensitive skin. Phloretin can inhibit the production of inflammatory factors, chemokines and differentiation factors, and has a certain anti-inflammatory effect. At the same time, phloretin can inhibit the ability of monocytes to adhere to keratinocytes and block the phosphorylation of signaling protein kinases Akt and MAPK,

thus achieving anti-inflammatory effects. In vivo studies have also demonstrated that phloretin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. The anti-inflammatory effect of phloretin in vivo and in vitro indicates that it has a potential sensitizing effect and can be used in sensitizing skin care products.
