A team led by Professors Lee Kiyong and Yuk Soonhong of the College of Pharmacy at the headquarters of the Korea Ginseng Corporation’s R&D Cosmetics Research Institute announced that red ginseng cream is effective in improving acne and skin redness.

 

According to the report, the research team applied cream containing 30 milligrams of red ginseng to 20 people aged 19 to 40 twice a day for four weeks. As a result, 72.9 percent of pimples and 51.1 percent of cotton (whiteheads, blackheads, etc.) were improved, while 6.4 percent of skin redness symptoms were also improved.

 

In the process, the research team confirmed that the acne antibacterial efficacy in red ginseng is the result of the antibacterial effective ingredients Panaxynol and Panaxydol.

 

The findings were published in the March issue of the international journal Phytotherapy Research’ in the paper, "Exploring the Antibiotics Effect of Effective Components Separated from the Fatty Division of Red Ginseng."

 

Lee Ki-yong, professor in the College of Pharmacy, said, "In order to treat advanced diseases, the industry has been required to develop alternative materials that have secured validity and safety. The findings confirmed that the red ginseng ingredient could be one of those alternative materials."
