United States patent US 9498423 describes a synergistic composition comprising of β – glucogallin (1-O-galloyl-β-D-glucose) or β – glucogallin and total gallates from Amla (Saberry ®), concentrate of liquid endosperm of Cocos nucifera (Cococin®) and the selenopeptides (γ-L-glutamyl-Se-methyl-L-selenocysteine, and γ-L-glutamyl- L-selenomethionine) for maintaining the morphology and numbers of the dermal papilla cells when exposed to stress signals. The composition protects the dermal papilla cells from stress signals (UVB radiation), and the numbers of live dermal papilla cells are maintained at a level of 95% or more when the dermal papilla cells are exposed to UVB radiation levels ranging from 0.8 J/cm2 to 1.0 J/cm2. This composition has also been patented in Europe (EP2695603), Japan (JP6064274), New Zealand (NZ600307) and Russia (RU2606752).
Sabinsa’s cosmetic division has also received a patent in Europe (EP2461786) for a composition comprising β – glucogallin (1-O-galloyl-β-D-glucose) Amla (Saberry ®) and concentrate of liquid endosperm of Cocos nucifera (Cococin®) for promoting hair growth. This composition also protects dermal papilla cells from UV rays. The invention has previously been granted a patent in in Australia (AU2010326651).
