The skin-lightening effects of artocarpin on UVB-induced pigmentation.

Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of the prenylated flavonol artocarpin from the heartwood of Artocarpus incisus on ultraviolet (UV)-induced hyperpigmentation of guinea pig skin. An efficient lightening effect was observed following topical application of artocarpin to UV-stimulated hyperpigmented dorsal skins of brownish guinea pigs.
