Abstract :

Skin aging is a normal process that can only be slowed down by the use of effective cosmetics. The aging of the skin involves structural and compositional changes in the skin cells as well as darkening. This process largely involves loss of hygroscopicity and moisture and increases in tyrosinase activity that catalyzes melanin synthesis. Herein, we have investigated the effect of the polysaccharides from Dendrobium huoshanense on hygroscopicity, moisturizing, and tyrosinase inhibition activity in in vitro and in vivo models. The results show increase in hygroscopicity, moisturizing effect, and inhibitory effects on tyrosinase. In conclusion, the polysaccharides from D. huoshanense may be excellent raw materials for the development of antiaging cosmetics.
