  • This study aims to investigate the status of using medicinal herb cosmetics targeting women who had experiences of using medicinal herb cosmetics and present basic data for future development of medicinal herb cosmetics that can satisfy the needs of future customers and convergence marketing strategies. For the purposes, this study conducted a frequency test and a chi-square test (${\chi}^2$) on the 351 copies of responses obtained from a survey targeting adult women to identify the use status according to perceptions on medicinal herb cosmetics. As a result, the followings were presented: As the subjects were older, they preferred medicinal herb cosmetics and intended to keep purchasing it. Customers had more confidence in the medicinal herb cosmetics when the cosmetics were good-quality. In respect to efficacy difference according to prices, the subjects who believed that there was difference in efficacy according to prices were more satisfied with the medicinal herb cosmetics and purchased products of higher price. Such results indicate it is suggested that medicinal herb cosmetics would develop further when cosmetic products that can satisfy their need are developed.

  • Objectives : The rapid progress seen in the Chinese medical and pharmaceutical industries since the mid.Ming Dynasty, and the resulting surge in demand for medicinal herbs led to the emergence of dedicated medicinal herb markets. A representative example was the medicinal herb market of Qizhou (today's Anguo) in Hebei Province. This paper examines various factors that contributed to the transformation and growth of Qizhou into and as a major medicinal herb market of China. Methods : Along with the examination of geographical factors, this study attempts to link the development of Qizhou as a center for medicinal herbs trade with legends related to the Medicine Lord Temple (Yao Wang Miao), a local shrine dedicated to the mythical Medicine Kings. Results : The main argument of this study is that although the emergence of Qizhou as China's largest marketplace for medicinal herbs was significantly helped by its proximity to Beijing, a huge source of demand, as well as its convenient location easily accessible from all parts of the country, and the large herbal production from surrounding areas, the single.most important contributing factor was the body of legends attributing to this city a magical healing energy. Conclusions : The example of Qizhou may also suggest that in pre.modern eras, legends related to supernatural healing power, associated to a city or town, were as important contributing factors to its emergence and growth as a dedicated medicinal herb market as its location or ease of access.

  • This study determined the effects of addition of medicinal herb extracts (Zanthoxylum piperitum extract(TZ), Acanthopanax sessiliflorus(TA), Panax ginseng(TP), Cinnamomum lureitri Nees(TC), Angelica gigantis radix(TAG) and Crataegii fructus extract (TCF) to teriyaki sauce with regard to taste and health benefit. After adding the medicinal herb extracts to teriyaki sauce, moisture content was found to be inversely proportional to the viscosity. The sauce with Panax ginseng extract(TP) had lowest sweetness, but highest salinity. The results showed that the sauce with Korean herb extracts had lower salinity content. In terms of colour value, the sauce with Crataegii fructus extract(TCF) had much higher lightness, redness, and yellowness than sauce prepared with other herb extracts. It had the strongest acidic taste and lowest pH. Sensory evaluation test revealed that the sauce with Anthoxylum piperitum extract(TZ) was the most preferred sauce among all the sauces tested. The degree of brown color of teriyaki sauces was correlated positively with taste preference(r=.570, p<0.01) and overall preference(r=.505, p<0.01).

  • Recently, it has been a big issue to distinguish the dried roots of Cynanchum wilfordii and C. auriculatum in health functional food market. The original plant species of Cynanchi Wilfordii Radix belong to the Asclepiadaceae family is differentially described in the national pharmacopoeia of Korea, China and Japan. Owing to the morphological similarities of the dried roots of this plant to those of C. auriculatum, which is often misidentified in Korean herbal medicine marketplace, distinguishing these two species is exceedingly difficult. The purpose of this study was to compare the conventional-PCR with the real-time PCR for detection of C. wilfordii and C. auriculatum DNA. We also tried to realize a quantitative real-time PCR assay using species-specific matK primers, which allowed us to estimate the ratio of C. willfordii and C. auriculatum using varying ratios of mixed genomic DNA template from the two species. The differentiation of intentional and unintentional mixture in this study would be applied to food safety management and can be helpful for protection of consumer's right and cultivators.

  • Finding a means to discriminate the commercial herb medicines when they were dried and sliced is a very important and imminent project in Korea. To differentiate plant origins and the commercial herb medicines of Atractylodes japonica and A. macrocephala, two discriminative methods using anatomical characteristics and SCAR marker were applied. It was possible to discriminate plant origins and the commercial herb medicines between A. japonica and A. macrocephala by anatomical characteristics: development of periderm, layer of stone cell, distribution of laticiferous vessels, development of xylem fiber in xylem ray, contained quantity of clustered crystals and others. While, two SCAR markers were developed from RAPD clones: SAjR2 (600 bp) from AjR2 and SAmR1 (1,200 bp) from AmR1. These two markers were enough for discrimination plant origins and the commercial herb medicines between A. japonica and A. macrocephala. The result of application of anatomical characteristics and SCAR markers to investigate current status in domestic herb market, Daegu and Kumsan herb market, it was identified to be current herb medicines of A japonica.
