Description: Ursolic acid is a pentacyclic triterpenoid compound
present with its isomer oleanolic acid in many plant kingdom.
Ursolic and oleanolic acids are known to have pharmacological
effect for skin cancer therapy. Ursolic acid is present in many
plants, including apples, basil, bilberries, cranberries, elder
flower, peppermint, rosemary, lavender, oregano, thyme, hawthorn,
prunes. Apple peels contain high quantity of ursolic acid and
related compounds which are responsible for the anti-cancer
activity of apple. Ursolic acid can also serve as a starting
material for synthesis of more potent bioactive derivatives, such
as anti-tumor agents.
1. Hair growth stimulant;
2. Antimicrobial activity;
3. Anti-aging agent;
4. Anti-inflammatory activity;
5. Inhibition of HIV;
6. The role of stability and calm.
Action:Ursolic acid treatment improves the health of skin and hair.
Ursolic acid and its derivatives form oil-resistant barriers on the
skin and hair, just as they form the waxy coating of fruits.
Ursolic acid has been used to treat photoaged skin, because it
inhibits the appearance of wrinkles and age spots by restoring the
skins collagen bundle structures and elasticity. Ursolic acid
inhibits the action of elastase enzyme in the skin, thereby
preventing the enzyme from attacking structural proteins. Ursolic
acid also inhibits the inflam-matory enzymes cyclooxygenase and
