Hydroxytyrosol is the most powerful natural antioxidant ingredient found in olives. It was shown to have an antioxidant capacity almost 40 times higher than green tea extract & Vitamin C, and 20 times greater than resveratrol. It is used for anti-aging and skin lightening in cosmetic applications. Also it aids in coronary health support, strengthens the immune system and acts as an antimicrobial agent. Our purity is >99% without any pesticides or fertilizers. We are the only manufacturer in China who can provide industrial-scale 99% pure hydroxytyrosol in liquid form. It is available as 10%, 20%, and 30% in powder form as well.

Biological Functions of Hydroxytyrosol

Hydroxytyrosol is a phytochemical belonging to the family of polyphenols and with the highest concentration of in olive and therefore it is the main antioxidant in olive.

Western countries have a long history of olive oil application in daily life as well as intensive study on it. In regards of this fact, European Union and USA have approved application of Hydroxytyrosol in Food/ Cosmetic/Nutritional Supplements etc.


Hydroxytyrosol is a highly bioavailable phytochemical with a high antioxidant capacity, responsible for most of the benefits of olive polyphenols in health.

Protection of UV radiation

Hydroxytyrosol prevents the damage that UV radiation causes in melanoma cells when exposed to harmful UV radiation. This is because this molecule reduces significantly the breakdown of DNA strands caused by UVB radiation as inhibits the proliferation of reactive species caused by the incident radiation.

Anti Bacteria

Hydroxytyrosol has potent antimicrobial properties against different types of bacteria.

Other Health Benefits of Hydroxytyrosol

  • 1. Prevention of neuro-degeneration diseases - Several studies suggest that reactive oxygen species (ROS) are involved in the etiology of a number of degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular, diabetes, cancer or Alzheimer’s.
  • 2. Protection against ARMD (age-related macular degeneration) - This is a disease related to age and other harmful effects such as smoking, Hydroxytyrosol properties such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and protection of the pigment epithelium, minimize the appearance and development of this disease.
  • 3. Prevention of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) - The cardioprotective capacity of Hydroxytyrosol is endorsed by the EFSA with a health claim for its inhibitory activity on the oxidation of LDL lipoproteins, which leads to diseases such as atherosclerosis.
  • 4. Anti-inflammatory - Hydroxytyrosol has been shown to inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory compounds caused by human leukocytes such as leukotrienes.
