Abstract:
An increasing number of mushroom species have recently been exploited for their potential application in the cosmeceuticals industry. However, the use of mushroom as an ingredient in cosmeceutical products is still limited. Therefore, more research is needed to fully explore the maximum potential of mushroom extracts for skin health. Schizophyllum commune is a cultivated edible mushroom known to contain biologically active compounds beneficial to skin health. In this present study, S. commune extracts were tested and compared for their functional activities. Biological components, such as the phenolic, polysaccharide and -glucan contents were evaluated. Cosmeceutical-related functionalities were determined, by assessing the antioxidant and anti-pigmentation activities. The results signified that the extracts of S. commune fruiting bodies have the potential to be developed as bio-ingredient in cosmeceutical or skincare products. However, further in depth studies should be undertaken to confirm the capability of mushroom extracts as cosmeceutical agents, such as the optimization of the extraction method and in vitro assays
