Abstract

Lemon and eucalyptus oils were known to have various biological effects such as anti-aging and sterilizing action. However these essential oils were not well studied about their antioxidant activity and antimicrobial activity against specific skin flora. In this study, we investigated antioxidant activity and antimicrobial activity of lemon and eucalyptus oils by using DPPH radical scavening activity and paper disc method. Lemon oil showed the high DPPH scavenging activity, while eucalyptus oil did not. Blending oils of lemon and eucalyptus had little enhancememt onantioxidant activity. Paper disc method demonstrated that each oil had a high antimicrobial effect against C. albicans and P. acnes in a concentration dependent manner. The blending oils had enhancememt on antimicrobial effect against P. acnes. In conclusion, the blending oil of lemon and eucalyptus can be used as a more effective natural agents for cure of skin trouble and acne.

레몬 오일과 유칼립투스 오일은 노화방지, 살균작용과 같은 다양한 효능을 가진 것으로 알려져 있다. 그러나 특정 피부 상재균에 대한 항균 효과와 항산화 효과는 아직 연구가 미비한 상황이다. 따라서 본 연구에서는 DPPH 라디칼 소거능 실험과 paper disc 방법을 이용하여 단일 오일들과 혼합오일의 항산화와 항균 활성을 검증하고자 하였다. 레몬 오일은 높은 DPPH 소거능을 보였으나 유칼립투스 오일은 아주 약한 소거능을 보였다. 두 오일을 혼합한 경우에는 효과가 증대되지 않았다. Paper disc 기법을 이용한 항균 효과 시험에서는 두 오일 모두 Candida albicans (C. albicans) 와 Propionibacterium acnes (P. acne)에서 항균력이 우수하며 농도의존적인 효능이 있음을 알 수 있었다. 또한, 두 오일 을 혼합 하였을 때 P. acne에 대하여 항균 활성이 상승됨을 알 수 있었다. 본 연구의 결과를 종합적으로 볼 때, 레몬 오일과 유칼립투스 오일의 혼합 오일은 천연성분으로서 균으로 야기된 문제성 피부나 여드름 피부를 개선시키는데 효과적일 것으로 사료된다.
