Technical data sheet for Dyacetyl Boldine
Boldo (Peumus boldus) is a chilean tree traditionally employed in folk medicine due to its properties (anti-inflammatory, antipiretic, spasmolytic, antioxidant, antiproliferative, hepatoprotective, alongside others), and it has been the only plant with medicinal purposes accepted in the EU. These faculties have been attributed to active compounds found in leaves and barks. The compound’s presence has fomented the use of this tree in international pharmacopoeia. It is worth saying that the most important active compound is boldine, an aporphine alkaloid, which has been deeply investigated by different authors and approaches. Among the Boldo componentes we can find Boldina. It is widely used as an ingredient by the industry in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food formulations. At Kimun Biotec, we have the production display to supply Boldine that the industry needs. In the same area, we can mention Dyacetil Boldine, which is a synthesized compound from Boldine, and has depigmenting and skin whitening properties. It is used in cosmetic formulations for skincare.
