Active Ingredient History

Chrysarobin was originally extracted from Goa powder, a substance deposited in the wood of Andira Araroba, Aguiar (Nat. Ord.—Leguminosae). Chrysarobin (1,8-dihydroxy-3-methyl-9-anthrone) has enol tautomer of 1,8,9-trihydroxy-3-methyl-anthracene. Chrysarobin exerts antipsoriatic action. The use of chrysarobin has a number of quite serious disadvantages, not the least of which is that it can result in severe staining and irritation of the skin. Chrysarobin is an anthrone skin tumor promoter.   NCATS
