HPLC profiling of Mimosa pudica polyphenols and their non-invasive biophysical investigations for anti-dermatoheliotic and skin reinstating potential.

Biomed Pharmacother 2019 Jan 5;109:865-875. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Plant-derived polyphenols are known to have promising biological activities including antioxidant and antityrosinase and may be a potential candidate for anti-dermatoheliotic remedy. The present study was performed to investigate the polyphenolic contents of Mimosa pudica (MP) seed extract and its anti-dermatoheliotic potential using non-invasive biophysical techniques after developing a stable topical emulgel formulation. Moreover, its in-vitro cytotoxicity was also evaluated using normal Human keratinocytes (HaCat cells) to rule out any cellular incompatibility. Read More
