What is exactly our technology?

WO2020169425 – LIQUID PROPOLIS EXTRACT, ITS FORMULATION AND USE THEREOF

• First pharmaceutically standardized non-alcoholic propolis extract
• Suitable for large-scale production
• The extract is characterized by standardized content of p-coumaric acid (1), trans-ferulic acid (2), caffeic acid (3), and CAPE (4).
• It is used as an active ingredient in manufacturing pharmaceutical, cosmetic, veterinary, agrochemical, or functional food products
• No use of solid and aggressive solvents like alcohol
Chemoselective extraction of bioactive molecules with the help of added emulsifier (lecithin)

The problem that is solved

• a non-alcoholic liquid propolis extract, which would be characterized by high and standardized content of phenolic propolis acids, para-coumaric acid (1), trans-ferulic acid (2), caffeic acid (3) and 2-phenylethyl ester of caffeic acid, 2- phenethyl 3 , 4-dihydroxy- trans-cinnamate (4; CAPE), for which several beneficial pharmacological activities are known, on both human and animal organisms;

• the process for its production;

• use for the production of pharmaceutical, cosmetic, veterinary, agrochemical, or food products with known, standardized content of propolis active substances 1-4; and especially,

• a pharmaceutical composition based on the mentioned propolis extract, which would be effective in the treatment of inflammatory and infective diseases, as well as diseases and conditions where the antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory activity of particular propolis active substances, play an important role in the etiology of their incidence, as suggested by certain references in the state of the art.

Our products are derived from bee products via a standardized extraction & purification process

Wound healing

Clinical evidence

• Our extract was used in wound healing case studies in animals. It improved the impaired healing of wounds in horses and many companion animals.

• It was tested for tolerance and safety on sensitive cow udder tissue.

• MTT tests showed that it is not cytotoxic
