LAE® is a safe and active compound for preservation.
The main particularity of Ethyl lauroyl arginate HCl is that its building blocks are naturally occurring substances: L-arginine, ethanol and lauric acid. Once Ethyl lauroyl arginate HCl is ingested by consumers, it is easily hydrolyzed. Within a few minutes in the human body, its biotransformed into natural compounds commonly found in the diet. This property is not shared by the other food preservatives currently found in the marketplace: sorbates, benzoates, sulphites, nitrites and nitrates.
Studies and security of LAE®
With a strong commitment to consumer safety, LAMIRSA GROUP has carried out all the necessary toxicological studies to demonstrate the innocuousness of LAE®.
To ensure the safety of Lauric arginate as a food preservative, VEDEQSA has commissioned a wide range of toxicological studies. With the aim of demonstrating that no adverse effects are associated with its ingestion at the intended levels of use. Additional studies have been performed to demonstrate the innocuousness of Lauric arginate when used in cosmetic preparations.
• Pharmacokinetic studies in rats and humans, and determination of metabolite levels in plasma and liver.
• Studies of acute oral toxicity, sub-chronic toxicity, and chronic toxicity.
• Studies of reproductive and embryonic development toxicity in one generation (in rabbits and rats) and two generations (in rats).
• Genetic toxicity studies, including reverse mutation bacterial assays, mutation with mouse cell lymphoma, and chromosomal aberration tests in human lymphocytes.

These studies have been carried out in prestigious international laboratories such as the Huntingdon Life Science.
It has been demonstrated that LAE®, manufactured according to the synthesis patented by LAMIRSA GROUP, is safe for consumers. At the recommended levels of use and validated by the competent authorities.
