In this study, we evaluated antioxidative effects and skin whitening effects of extract of Caragana sinica fermented by S. cerevisiae KCTC 7913. At first, Caragana sinica was fermented via inoculation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae KCTC 7913 and then extracted for fermented C. sinica. It has shown that more increased of melanogenesis inhibition activity in a dose-dependent manner on B16F10 melanoma cells and elevated the amount of resveratrol contents by HPLC analysis than non-fermented. Furthermore, the extract of fermented C. sinica was inhibitory effects against tyrosinase, a key enzyme of melanogenesis pathway, more than non-fermented C. sinica extract. And it did not show the skin irritation. Therefore, fermented C. sinica extracts might be used as safe cosmetic ingredients.

본 연구는 미생물에 의한 골담초(Caragana sinica Rehder) 발효 추출물의 항산화 효과 및 피부 미백 효능에 관한 연구로 골담초에 S. cerevisiae KCTC 7913를 첨가하여 발효를 통해 얻어진 발효 추출물을 B16F10 멜라닌 세포에 처리한 결과, 농도의존적으로 멜라닌 생성 억제 효능이 증가한 것으로 확인하였으며, 추출물 내 유효 성분인 resveratrol의 함량이 발효 전의 추출물에 비해 증가함을 확인하였다. 멜라닌 생성 과정의 주요 단백질인 tyrosinase의 활성 억제 또한 골담초 추출물에 비해 골담초 발효 추출물의 효능이 우수함을 확인하였으며, 골담초 발효 추출물의 피부 자극 또한 일어나지 않는 것으로 확인되어 피부에 안전한 화장품 원료로서의 사용이 가능할 것으로 사료된다.
