The other list includes medicated preparations, serums, dermatological and pharmaceutical preparations for skin care, medicated acne preparations, nutritional supplements, body hydration, prevention and treatment of hair-loss, and treatment for the skin and the metabolism against the effects of fatigue or stress.

Along with trademarking the products, Elba has also applied in his own name to trademark the use of S'able Labs and Coupledom, stated the report.

All applications are pending and yet to be approved.
