The small peptides covered by the patent are more water-soluble and practically devoid of smell, Sabinsa says.

Sabinsa (East Windsor, NJ) has received a U.S. patent for the process of manufacturing small peptides that incorporate selenium, for pharmaceutical and cosmeceutical applications.

“New products, namely selenodipeptides, based upon the patent, will greatly expand the applications of selenium, an essential element for human nutrition and one in which people could be deficient,” the company stated in a press release.

The small peptides covered by the patent are more water-soluble and practically devoid of smell, Sabinsa says.

Sabinsa is a leader in selenium research for nutrition and cosmetics, with products including SeleniumSeLECT, SelenoForce, and Methyselene. Newer products PeptiSeLect and PeptiSelene will now be added.
