Details

Tittle:
Improved procedure to obtain active principles from Aloe leaves without the phenolic compounds (aloins)
Summary:
A Spanish technology based firm, a university spin-off, working on plant active compounds has developed a procedure to obtain active principles from Aloe leaves. A product with pharmacological, cosmetic and nutritional use is obtained as the resultant product. Toxic compounds as phenols are removed. The researchers are interested in joint venture and/or manufacture agreements.
Description:
Aloe is a plant from Asphodelaceas family, with hard and fleshy leaves, with are more than 350 species, only few of them have principles with curative properties. There are several commercial products coming from Aloe that came from leaf´s exudates, epidermis and pulp or gel (as popular medicine has named them).

There is a main interest in obtaining, pure active principles from Aloe, for therapeutic purpose.

Both in therapeutic and food use, one of the most important problems in preparations coming from Aloe, are the undesirable effects of some of its components. In this way, the existence of aloins and related compounds is a serious problem that limits a more extended use of Aloe juice as food additive.

The Spanish technology based company was create as a spin off of a University. The firm has developed a procedure to obtain active principles from Aloe leaves where the toxic compounds, as phenols, are removed. The method separates and recuperates phenolic compounds (as aloins), that can be toxic in determined uses. Active substances with high nutritional and therapeutic interest are obtained. The improved system of obtaining active principles from Aloe leaves is a fast, economic and efficient method to obtain a product with pharmacological, cosmetic and nutritional use.
The company is interested in join venture and/or manufacture agreement with pharmacology, cosmetic, nutrition and agro alimentary companies.
Advantages and Innovations:
Innovations:

The use of this method allows obtaining a product free of Aloe´s toxic compounds that could produce allergies and other metabolic disorders. The use of this technology also follows the European regulation related to the allowed concentration of aloins in products coming from the Aloe.

Advantages:

In this process a fast, economic and efficient method is described, in order to separate and recover phenolic substances (as aloins), that in some uses can be harmful or toxic, and at the same time, to obtain actives substances with high nutritional and therapeutic interest.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
They are looking for companies from the pharmacology, cosmetic, nutrition and agro alimentary sector, in order to sign joint venture agreements and/or manufacturing agreements.
The activity to be done by these companies would consist in studying the viability of the concrete product that would include the active ingredient from Aloe Vera and its commercialization in the market.
