Manuka tree is indigenous to New Zealand, and its essential oil has been used as a traditional medicine to treat wounds, fever, and pain. Although there is a growing interest in the use of manuka oil for antiaging skin care products, little is known about its bioactivity. Solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the primary environmental factor causing skin damage and consequently premature aging. Therefore, we evaluated manuka oil for its effects against photoaging in UV-B-irradiated hairless miceโ€ฆย Expand

Ameliorative effects of snake (Deinagkistrodon acutus) oil and its main fatty acids against UVB-induced skin photodamage in mice.
This study demonstrated for the first time in KM mice that snake oil exhibited prominent photoprotection activity by protecting the activity of antioxidant enzymes and inhibiting inflammatory factors, as well as reducing the generation of MMP-1. Expand
Chemical Composition and Skin Protective Effects of Essential Oil Obtained from Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe)
GEO treatment at three different concentrations ameliorated UVB-induced skin inflammation and inhibited interleukin-1ฮฒ and tumour necrosis factor-ฮฑ expression in skin tissues, therefore, GEO adequately protected the skin from UVB irradiation and photoaging. Expand
Ameliorative Effects of Peptides from the Oyster (Crassostrea hongkongensis) Protein Hydrolysates against UVB-Induced Skin Photodamage in Mice
This study demonstrated for the first time that OPs protected against UVB induced skin photodamage by virtue of its antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as regulating the abnormal expression of MMP-1. Expand
The Chemical Compositions of Angelica pubescens Oil and Its Prevention of UVโ€B Radiationโ€Induced Cutaneous Photoaging
Application of AO improved the condition of UVโ€B radiationโ€induced damaged skin, and the mechanism of action was found to be related to inhibition of the production of inflammatory cytokines. Expand
Mฤnuka Oilโ€”A Review of Antimicrobial and Other Medicinal Properties
The present review found extensive in vitro data supporting the antimicrobial effects of mฤnuka oil warrants further clinical studies to establish its therapeutic potential and clinical evidence on its efficacy, safety and dosing guidelines are necessary for its implementation for medical purposes.

The Protective Effects of a Combination of an Arginine Silicate Complex and Magnesium Biotinate Against UV-Induced Skin Damage in Rats
Results show that treatment with ASI and MgB protects against skin damage by improving skin appearance, elasticity, inflammation, apoptosis, and overall health. Expand


Augmentation of UV-induced skin wrinkling by infrared irradiation in hairless mice
It is demonstrated that IR alone induces skin wrinkling and augments UV-induced wrinkle formation, and suggests that IR plays an important role in the development of photoaging. Expand
Botanical antioxidants in the prevention of photocarcinogenesis and photoaging
This review will focus on the effects of selected botanical antioxidants in the prevention of photocarcinogenesis and photoaging through use ofBotanical antioxidants present in the common diet of human and their applications in skin care products. Expand
Green tea polyphenols: DNA photodamage and photoimmunology.
In vivo observations suggest that GTPs are photoprotective, and can be used as pharmacological agents for the prevention of solar UVB light-induced skin disorders associated with immune suppression and DNA damage. Expand
Green tea extract reduces induction of p53 and apoptosis in UVBโ€irradiated human skin independent of transcriptional controls
Topical GTE (OM24ยฎ) reduces UVBโ€mediated epithelial damage already at low, cosmetically usable concentrations, without tachyphylaxis over 5 weeks, suggesting GTE as suitable everyday photochemopreventive agents. Expand
Pathophysiology of premature skin aging induced by ultraviolet light.
Multiple exposures to ultraviolet irradiation lead to sustained elevations of matrix metalloproteinases that degrade skin collagen and may contribute to photoaging. Expand
Molecular basis of sun-induced premature skin ageing and retinoid antagonism
It is proposed that elevated metalloprotein-ases, resulting from activation of AP-1 and NF-KB by low-dose solar irradiation, degrade collagen and elastin in skin, which would result in solar scars, which through accumulation from a lifetime of repeated low- dose sunlight exposure could cause premature skin ageing (photoageing).

Inhibition of UVB-induced wrinkle formation and MMP-9 expression by mangiferin isolated from Anemarrhena asphodeloides.
Results indicate that mangiferin exerts anti-photoaging activity in UVB-irradiated hairless mice by regulating MMP-9 expression through inhibition of MEK and ERK. Expand

This scientific review summarizes what is known about how photodamage occurs; why sunscreens--the current gold standard of photoprotection--are inadequate; and how topical AOs help protect against skin cancer and photoaging changes. Expand
Matrix-degrading metalloproteinases in photoaging.
Current understanding of the role of MMPs in the photoaging process is summarized and new data are presented that describe the expression and regulation byUV irradiation of all members of the MMP family in human skin in vivo and quantify the relative contributions of epidermis and dermis to the expression of UV irradiation-induced M MPs.
