The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of the Moringa oleifera (M. oleifera) extract as a cosmetic additive. The tyrosinase and elastase inhibitory effects showed 47% and 39% at 1,000 μg/mL concentration, respectively. Also, the collagenase inhibition effect was 31% at 500 μg/mL concentration. A cell viability test, measured on macrophage cell (RAW 264.7) and melanoma cell (B16F10) by ethanol extract of M. oleifera, showed 94.2% and 94.8% at 100 μg/mL concentration, respectively. In order to confirm anti-inflammatory activity, we examined the inhibitory effects on the production of lipopolysaccharides (LPS)-induced NO in RAW 264.7 cells by Griess assay. As a result, the M. oleifera extract showed a concentration-dependent inhibition of NO production. The protein expression inhibitory effects of M. oleifera extract were measured by western blot at 25, 50, 100 μg/mL concentration and the β-actin. Results showed that the expression inhibition rates of the iNOS, COX-2, MITF, TRP-1, TRP-2, tyrosinase protein were decreased by 85.8%, 57.5%, 80.7%, 30%, 29.9%, 23.6% at 100 μg/mL concentration, respectively. It was concluded that M. oleifera extracts had the anti-inflammatory and whitening effects and thus could be applied for cosmetics as a natural ingredient.

본 연구에서는 화장품 천연소재로서 모링가 에탄올 추출물의 이용 가능성을 확인하였다. Tyrosinase와 elastase 저해활성을 측정한 결과 각각 1,000 μg/mL에서 47%, 39%의 활성을 나타내었다. 모링가 에탄올 추출물에 대한 collagenase 저해활성을 측정한 결과 1,000 μg/mL에서 31%의 활성을 확인하였다. 세포 생존율을 MTT 분석법으로 확인한 결과 대식 세포(Raw264.7)와 멜라노마 세포(B16F10)의 농도 구간이 100μg/mL 일 때 각각 94.2%, 94.8%의 생존율을 보였다. 항염증 활성을 확인하기 위해 griess 분석에 의하여 대식세포에 lipopolysaccharides (LPS)를 처리하였다. 그 결과 모링가 에탄올 추출물의 농도가 증가함에 따라 NO 발현 억제효과를 확인하였다. Western blot을 통한 단백질 발현 억제 효과를 측정하기 위해 25, 50, 100μg/mL 농도의 모링가 에탄올 추출물과 β-actin을 사용하였다. 그 결과, iNOS, COX-2, MITF, TRP-1, TRP-2, tyrosinase의 단백질 발현양이 100 μg/mL에서 85.8%, 57.5%, 80.7%, 30%, 29.9%, 23.6%로 억제됨을 확인하였다. 따라서 미백 및 항염증 효과가 우수함을 확인하였고, 모링가 에탄올 추출물의 화장품 소재로서의 가능성을 확인하였다.
