Resumen:
Una pyme catalana ha desarrollado un nuevo proceso para hidrolizar la membrana de la cáscara de huevo. El hidrolizado obtenido ha demostrado tener una fuerte capacidad para aumentar el crecimiento de tejido dérmico cuando se utiliza en heridas y en cremas o lociones cosméticas. El proceso de producción ha sido probado en una planta piloto y la función dérmica en ensayos con cerdos (para cicatrización de heridas) y en humanos (para cosméticos). Se buscan socios industriales de los sectores cosmético y farmacéutico con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

Details

Tittle:
New method to obtain eggshell membrane hydrolysate, a product used as skin growth promoter and wound healing.
Summary:
A Catalan SME has developed a new process to hydrolyze eggshell membrane.The resultant hydrolysate has demonstrated strong ability to increase the growth of dermal tissue when used in wounds and in cosmetic creams or lotions. The production process has been tested at pilot plant level and the dermal function on tests using piglets (for wound healing) and in humans (for cosmetics). The SME is looking for industrial partners related to cosmetics and pharmaceutics interested in a license agreement.
Description:
A Barcelona based private SME has developed a novel process to hydrolyze eggshell membrane for cosmetics or chirurgical uses.

The use of eggshell membrane as skin growth promoter and wound healing has been described long ago in traditional Chinese medicine. Even nowadays, Japanese sumo fighters use it as they assure that healing is faster and more flexible than when using chemical drugs.

Most of the methods used to hydrolyse the eggshell membrane combine chemical and enzymatic processes.

The new method developed by the Catalan SME to obtain the eggshell membrane hydrolysate only uses an enzymatic process followed by purification by decantation or filtration. Several procedures with different molecular weight of peptides have been tested and, finally, the one with the best performance has been chosen and standardized.

The hydrolysate has been tested in vitro (as fibroblastes growing promoter) and in vivo (as wound healing in piglets and as skin regeneration promoter in beauty cream) and the results have been interesting and encouraging as they demonstrate that the hydrolyzed product as sense as a bioactive compound.

The hydrolysate can be obtained in an effective and ecological way, without use of chemicals and through a food waste valorization process.
