Ellagic acid encourages elasticity and suppleness in aged skin. More youthful looking skin may be one benefit of applying topical ellagic acid.
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. It can also be expected to improve the appearance of pigmented skin such as melasma or freckles.
