Abstract Context: Centella asiatica (L.) Urban (Apiaceae), a valuable herb described in Ayurveda, is used in the indigenous system of medicine as a tonic to treat skin diseases. Objective: Centella asiatica methanol extract and its ethyl acetate, n-butanol and aqueous fraction, were subjected for the evaluation of skin care potential through the in vitro hyaluronidase, elastase and matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) inhibitory assay. Materials and methods: The C. asiatica plant was extracted… 
Two triterpenoids from Rubus fraxinifolius leaves and their tyrosinase and elastase inhibitory activities
Molecular docking proved that both compounds have affinities toward the enzymes, and various extracts from Rubus fraxinifolius leaves and enzyme inhibition assays used to isolate compounds with protective effects against skin aging.
Antioxidant and Anti-Hyaluronidase Activities of Dragon Fruit Peel Extract and Kaempferol-3-O-Rutinoside
Aging is a natural process in human life and is triggered by the presence of free radicals (ROS). The use of antioxidants from natural ingredients is one of the breakthroughs to overcome aging and
A potent anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties were well demonstrated by C. sativus, as depicted from the results obtained.
In vitro anti-inflammatory property of a Quercetin-3-O-diglucoside-7-O-glucoside characterized from fresh leaves of Trigonella foenum-graecum L
The results demonstrate that newly characterized quercetin glycoside from fresh leaves of fenugreek possesses potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities.
Comparison of the Antiaging and Protective Properties of Plants from the Apiaceae Family
It has been shown that the highest antioxidant capacity can be observed for the extract of herb of Aegopodium podagraria L. extract, which inhibits the activity of collagenase and elastase enzymes by over 70% in the concentration of 5% positively affecting the condition of skin cells.
Biological Evaluation of Avocado Residues as a Potential Source of Bioactive Compounds
Avocado seed and peel are the main by-products from avocado industrialisation, and account for nearly 30% of fruit weight. Although they are usually discarded, their high phenolic content has been
Molecular modeling for potential cathepsin L inhibitor identification as new anti-photoaging agents from tropical medicinal plants
The toxicity test indicated that β-amyrin is the most potential candidate since it exhibited the lowest binding energy and the high safety level, and the aims of this study were to predict the antiaging activity of the 31 compounds from these plants via inhibition of cathepsin L.
Pharmacokinetic and Phytochemical Appraisal of Trigonella foenum and Andrographis lineata in Dimethylnitrosamine Induced Injury in Albino Rats
All the pharmacokinetic parameters of trigonelline and andrographolide administered in low dose confirmed the better antioxidative activity than that of ascorbic acid used as a potent antioxidant.
Does Centella Asiatica Have Antiaging Activity in Skincare Products?
The mechanism of two main compounds of C. asiatica to prevent aging processes by computational analysis suggested that C.asiatica compounds performed antiaging and further in vitro or in vivo analysis are required.


Standardized Clitoria ternatea leaf extract as hyaluronidase, elastase and matrix-metalloproteinase-1 inhibitor
The experiment validated the traditional uses of C. ternatea and may be recommended for use in the treatment of different types of skin wounds, where taraxerol may be a responsible biomarker.

Preparation of Ursane Triterpenoids from Centella asiatica Using High Speed Countercurrent Chromatography with Step‐Gradient Elution
Abstract Pentacyclic triterpene aglycones and glycosides of the ursane type were successfully separated from 600 mg of a polar extract from Centella asiatica (Apiaceae) by high speed countercurrent
Asiaticoside induction for cell‐cycle progression, proliferation and collagen synthesis in human dermal fibroblasts
Fifty‐four genes, with known functions for cell proliferation, cell‐cycle progression and synthesis of the extracellular matrix, were significantly up‐regulated in the “whole‐genes nest” expression profile at various timepoints and there is a close correlation among the gene profile, mRNA and protein production in the cells response to asiaticoside stimulation.
