In vitro human skin permeation and cutaneous metabolism of catechins from green tea extract and green tea extract–loaded chitosan microparticles
Catechins are major antioxidants in green tea (Camellia sinensis or Camellia assamica), but because they do not permeate the skin well, the application of green tea in cosmetic products has so farExpand
Curcuma aeruginosa, a novel botanically derived 5α-reductase inhibitor in the treatment of male-pattern baldness: a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study
Abstract Background: Several botanically derived agents are available for the treatment of male-pattern baldness. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of 5% hexane extract ofExpand
Chitosan and trimethyl chitosan chloride (TMC) as adjuvants for inducing immune responses to ovalbumin in mice following nasal administration.
Chitosan of different molecular weights (Chi-P, MW=2.7x10(5) g/mol and Chi-A, MW=5.0x10(5) g/mol) and trimethyl chitosan chloride (TMC) of various degree of quaternization (DQ) including TMC-20,Expand
Anti-androgenic effect of sesquiterpenes isolated from the rhizomes of Curcuma aeruginosa Roxb.
Six sesquiterpenes: germacrone (1), zederone (2), dehydrocurdione (3), curcumenol (4), zedoarondiol (5) and isocurcumenol (6) were isolated from rhizomes of Curcuma aeruginosa Roxb. (Zingiberaceae).Expand
Bisindole alkaloids and secoiridoids from Alstonia macrophylla Wall. ex G. Don.
The ethanolic extract from stems of a Thai medicinal plant, Alstonia macrophylla Wall. ex G. Don (Apocynaceae) showed a significant inhibitory effect on acetylcholinesterase (AChE) determined byExpand
In vitro anti‐Malassezia activity and potential use in anti‐dandruff formulation of Asparagus racemosus
Malassezia species are frequently associated with dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis. The study was conducted to evaluate anti‐fungal activities of the extracts obtained from the roots of AsparagusExpand
Polymeric Micelles of PEG-PE as Carriers of All-Trans Retinoic Acid for Stability Improvement
The topical application of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) is an effective treatment for several skin disorders, including photo-aging. Unfortunately, ATRA is susceptible to light, heat, and oxidizingExpand
Germacrone and sesquiterpene-enriched extracts from Curcuma aeruginosa Roxb. increase skin penetration of minoxidil, a hair growth promoter
Minoxidil is approved for topical treatment of androgenic alopecia but hampered by poor cutaneous absorption. Recently, the randomized control trial showed that hair loss treatment of minoxidil wasExpand
Antioxidant activity and antiapoptotic effect of Asparagus racemosus root extracts in human lung epithelial H460 cells.
The present study examined the antioxidant activity and protective effect of extracts from Asparagus racemosus roots against Lipofectamine-induced apoptosis. Five fractions from a successiveExpand
Curcuma aeruginosa Roxb. essential oil slows hair-growth and lightens skin in axillae; a randomised, double blinded trial.
BACKGROUND Androgenic hair-growth contributes to secondary gender characteristics but can be troublesome in women. Inhibiting axillary hair-growth via 5-α-reductases using the Thai medicinal plant,Expand
