Ellagic acid is a tyrosinase inhibitor and an effective skin brightener. Because Ellagic acid does not affect the DNA of melanocytes (the skin cells that produce pigment), it makes a safer alternative to other skin brightening ingredients like hydroquinone. In Japan, Ellagic acid is widely used as an active ingredient for the prevention of spots and freckles after developing sunburn from exposure to excess sunlight. Some consider Ellagic acid a more efficient skin whitener and suppressor of pigmentation than Arbutin or Kojic acid at the same dose level (1%). Ellagic acid can prevent the buildup of skin pigmentation after sunburn. It can also be expected to improve the appearance of pigmented skin such as melasma or freckles.
