EGT Antioxidant from Sinonocy


Ergothioneine has a range of skin care applications.

Ergothioneine (EGT) imparts a range of benefits to cosmetic formulas, thanks to its whitening, anti-aging and sun care properties, according to Sinonocy, which produces the material via biosynthesis. EGT is a natural chiral amino acid antioxidant and, due to its multifunctional effects, it stands out as an antioxidant, according to the company.

For example, EGT scavenges reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species, activates antioxidant enzymes and inhibits superoxide dismutase and chelates divalent metal ions. According to Sinonocy, the material also acts as a UV filter and physiological cytoprotector.
