What’s Maslinic Acid?

Maslinic Acid, a triterpenoid abundantly present in olive leaves, has been identified within the Oleaceae family, particularly in the common olive. The fruit of this plant harbors approximately 5% oleuropein complex (OEC), a blend of ligustilin and hydroxytyrosol.

As part of this complex, hydroxytyrosol undergoes conversion during the ripening process, giving rise to maslinic acid, with concentrations reaching up to 0.2%.

Renowned for its significant health benefits, maslinic acid stands out as one of the most extensively researched natural active ingredients. Notably, it serves as the primary active component in cosmetic skincare products, sparking widespread interest in both the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

As an industry trailblazer, FocusHerb proudly stands as the world’s first manufacturer to successfully extract maslinic acid from olive leaves, paving the way for innovative applications in skincare and beyond.

The Functions of Maslinic Acid

Anti-tumor and anti-cancer

Maslinic acid has demonstrated significant effectiveness in inhibiting cell growth and promoting apoptosis in cancer cells. This discovery holds great promise in the field of cancer research.

Lowering blood sugar

It has demonstrated a considerable capacity to mitigate the increase in blood sugar levels caused by adrenaline and glucose. It also effectively counteracts the depletion of liver glycogen triggered by adrenaline.


Inhibit the activity of HIV protease. At a concentration of 17.9 ug/mL, the inhibition rate of HIV protease is 100%, which is stronger than 85% of ursolic acid.

Antioxidant effect

It has been shown to exhibit antioxidant activity in both living organisms (in vivo) and laboratory settings (in vitro).


Maslinic acid has the ability to inhibit the signaling pathway that occurs prior to osteoclast differentiation, leading to the suppression of osteoclast differentiation.


Significantly reduce the secretion of inflammatory factors interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor gangrene factor alpha (TNF-α) by macrophages to achieve anti-inflammatory effects and inhibit swelling.

The Applications of Maslinic Acid

Maslinic acid has a wide range of biological activities, including anti-tumor, anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, neuroprotective and antibacterial. It is used in skin care products and dietary supplements.

  • Cosmetics and skin care products
  • Pharmaceutical raw materials
  • Health products
  • Functional food
  • Nutritional supplements
