Fulvic acid is a natural material contained within soil that contains an ample amount of minerals and various functionalities such as antioxidation, currently making it a popular choice as a raw material for food, medicine and cosmetic products. Therefore, the research is to develop functional cosmetics for the prevention of skin aging by using fulvic acid, a natural humic substance that is effective in improving whitening and wrinkle. However, adenosine, edelweiss-cultured natural extracts,

Also,stable production was proposed including weight-measuring scale, stirring AGi adjustment and etc. that are performed for a smooth chelate reaction of crude fulvic acid solution. Furthermore, various tests such as including a skin cell safety test, collagen synthesis test, wrinkle improvement-related gene expression analysis test, anti-aging and antioxidative effect test and melanin synthesis inhibition test are performed and showed an outstanding level of performance in all tests. Finally, the cream has been tested on 5 items, criteria of quality assessment in cosmetic testing by the Ministry of Food & Drug safety, which are lead, arsenic, mercury, methanol, etc. and have passed all the inspection criteria.
