Undecylenoyl phenylalanine for Skin care


What is Undecylenoyl phenylalanine?

Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine is a compound that is commonly used in skin lightening/whitening cosmetic formulations. Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine is a compound that includes amino acids and lipid residue, used to prevent skin cells from producing melanin pigmentation. Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine inhibits melanotropin, a melanin stimulator found in the skin. Melanotropin controls tyrosinase activity (tyrosinase being an essential enzyme in the production of melanin), melanin (eumalanin) synthesis and melanosome; therefore, by preventing the production of melanotropin, the pigmentation process is reduced or halted.

Function of Undecylenoyl phenylalanine

Undecylenoyl phenylalanine Is the melanoma cell hormone synthesis process plays an important role in the molecular antagonist, compared with the traditional whitening agent(Hydroquinone,Arbutin,Kojic acid and so on), its whitening freckle effect is more significant, and more secure.

Undeceno phenylalanine mainly on the melanoma cells on the cell membrane receptor (Receptor) G protein, and through the black
The cytokine (α-MSH) competes for the receptor position and prevents the binding of α-MSH to the G protein, thereby cutting off the source reaction of the black synthesis.

Further affecting the various stages of biochemical reactions of melanin initiated by alpha-MSH, resulting in a cascade of biochemical reactions that effectively inhibit melanin production (see Figure 2). It is also because DEP-11 can cut off the source of melanin synthesis and lead to a number of links to fully inhibit melanin production, which makes it with the traditional whitening agents (such as arbutin, kojic acid, hydroquinone, vitamin C magnesium phosphate, etc.) Single effect path compared to the effect is more obvious and lasting.

Application of  Undecylenoyl phenylalanine

Top grade cosmetics grade natural Undecylenoyl phenylalanine PowderThis product is 100% safe and scientific findings and dermatological tests have proven Undecylenoyl phenylalanine Powder to be fast, safe and effective in controlling skin problems such as:


-Age spots


-Sun spots


-Hormonal disorders due to birth control pills and pregnancy

According to PGBeautyGroomingScience, “In vitro testing shows that undecylenoyl phenylalanine works differently than other topical ingredients for spot reduction. Currently, niacinamide and N-acetyl glucosamine work by interrupting the melanin synthesis pathwaySepiwhite Powder works as an MSH (melanin stimulating hormone) antagonist, preventing the melanin synthesis from starting.”
