As natural plant-based industry has been expanded, the use of oriental medicinal plants as cosmeceutical material received a lot of attentions in the cosmetic industry. Among various medicinal plants, Potentilla chinensis have drawn interests for its biological effects. Although several attempts were tried to study its biological effect as medicinal plant, only limited results were reported to evaluate its biological effect as cosmeceutical material. In this study, we examined the possibility of root extract from Potentilla chinensis as a cosmeceutical material because the root part has been reported to have several kinds of health promoting effects. After extraction of roots, biological evaluation including anti-inflammation, anti-wrinkle, whitening effect and moisturizing effect was performed. As a result, the root extract showed remarkable biological activities through stimulating synthesis of elastin and aquaporin-3, and inhibiting melanin synthesis, cyclooxygenase-2 expression and expression of metallopeptidase-1.
