WACKER provides powerful ingredients for creating beautfying supplements. Our highly pure hydroxytyrosol, HTEssence® and our vegan L-cysteine, FERMOPURE® are extremely effective, and perfectly tailored to international market needs.
Comparison of ORAC Values
HTEssence® has an oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) of 45,000 μmol TE/g, making it over thirty times more effective than vitamin C at scavenging oxygen radicals. Even after spray drying (20% hydroxytyrosol on maltodextrin), the ORAC value of HTEssence® is still 6.5 times higher than that of vitamin C.
WACKER’s hydroxytyrosol HTEssence® has an antioxidant effect that is 30 times higher than that of vitamin C, providing effective cell protection and a wide range of additional cosmetic advantages. HTEssence® protects the skin against UVB radiation and it can help to prevent the pigment changes and skin spots that typically occur with age. By inhibiting tyrosinase and increasing glutathione levels within the cells, hydroxytyrosol may stimulate pheomelanin production and lead to brighter skin.
HTEssence® is a nature-identical hydroxytyrosol of superior purity that is manufactured in a patented process. The product is available as an odorless, water-soluble powder and in liquid form. It is suitable for preparing functional foods and dietary supplements, such as tablets, capsules, energy bars and functional beverages.

FERMOPURE® is the trade name for WACKER‘s natural L-cystine and vegan L-cysteine. It adds extra advantages to dietary supplements that help promote beauty. As an essential component of keratin, the amino acid, L-cysteine forms disulfide bridges, which enhance the structure and strength of hair, skin and nails. L-cysteine is also the active component in the cell’s most important protective agent: glutathione. Taking L-cysteine can stimulate the body to produce glutathione, thereby promoting healthy aging. Its sulfhydryl group neutralizes free radicals and acts as an antioxidant. L-cysteine can also result in the production of pheomelanin instead of melanin, and so prevent spots (hyperpigmentation) resulting from UV exposure or aging.
As a key component of modern preparations for hair straightening or perms, L-cysteine can also change the texture of the hair by opening disulfide bridges. It also protects the hair against damage and lends it gloss. FERMOPURE® products are free from the pungent odor of other perming agents.
WACKER produces natural L-cystine and vegan L-cysteine by a sustainable fermentation process. Our FERMOPURE® amino acids are manufactured following the strict FSSC 22000 and ISO 9001:2015 guidelines. FERMOPURE® products are highly pure, BSE/TSE-free and certified as halal and kosher.
