Hericium erinaceus, or lion`s mane extract contains many polysaccharides, polyphenols and other substances. Its antioxidant activity has a strong ability to delay aging and strengthen the body's immunity. These active ingredients also inhibit the formation of genetic material in cancer cells, prevent and treat cancer of the digestive tract. And the efficacy of other malignant tumors. In addition, Hericium erinaceus contains a variety of amino acids and other substances, Hericium erinaceus has anti-ulcer, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-aging, anti-fatigue, accelerate the body's blood circulation, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure and so on.
1 Extraction and application of characteristic substances of Hericium erinaceus
1.1 Extraction and application of antibacterial substances
According to the experiment, four kinds of measures for extracting bacteriostatic substances from Hericium erinaceus and determining the antibacterial activity of the test solution of Hericium erinaceus by agar diffusion test include (1) fermentation supernatant; (2) ethanol extract; 3) boiling water extract; (4) ultrasonic extract, respectively, was added to a perforated culture dish, in which ethanol extract was used as negative control with absolute ethanol, and the other three groups were treated with sterile water as negative control, four groups. The appropriate amount of penicillin was used as a positive control. Observed results, methods (1) and (3) had poor antibacterial results on the experimental bacteria, indicating that the extracts of Hericium erinaceus obtained by these two extraction methods contained few antibacterial substances. Method (2) has a certain inhibitory effect on the experimental bacteria, and at the same time, it can extract the inhibitory substance from the monkey mushroom test solution. The method (4) releases the mycelial cell wall and almost all the substances in the cell, so the antibacterial effect is better. Others, using this feature, we can continue to try to select the best amount for the development of beauty products through multiple experiments, such as the development of a cleansing milk, lotion, night cream, etc. that can inhibit mites.
1.2 Extraction and application of antioxidant substances in Hericium erinaceus
There are different levels of antioxidant active substances in Hericium erinaceus. Among the above four methods, hyphae ultrasonic shredding liquid has the highest activity, and secondly, methods (2) and (3) are compared. Method (2) The oxidation resistance is the lowest. When the concentration of the extract is increased, the antioxidant activity is also increased. The method (4) can extract the antioxidant substance to the greatest extent. Although the method (2) can also Extracting anti-oxidant substances, but it is used in beauty products. Ethanol is irritating to the skin. Especially skin with thin stratum corneum cannot use products with high ethanol content. Therefore, the best ultrasonic extraction method can ensure the structure of antioxidants. Will not be destroyed by external factors. This feature can be used to develop, toner lotion, wrinkle essence, brightening essence and so on.
1.3 Extraction and application of scavenging free radicals from Hericium erinaceus extract
According to experiments, when the concentration of solid matter in method (4) reaches a certain concentration, the free radical scavenging rate reaches 90%. The academic circles believe that some free radical accumulation is many. The chief culprit of the disease, especially tumor and aging, is related to the accumulation of free radicals. Free radicals include singlet oxygen, superoxide radicals, hydrogen peroxide, the mechanism and freedom of free radicals on the skin and in the skin. The prevention or inhibition of the base has become a key issue in the development of anti-aging and whitening skin care products. We will adjust the free radicals to achieve efficient and rational use.
2 Development of Hericium Mushroom Beauty Products
2.1 hydrating whitening products
The antibacterial and anti-oxidant substances extracted from Hericium erinaceus have anti-aging effects, and the vitamins can be extracted to renew and renew the skin, creating a series of natural plant new beauty products that are unprecedented, natural, non-toxic, harmless and no side effects. Using the antibacterial, anti-oxidant and rich amino acids and vitamins of Hericium erinaceus to replenish water, nourish the nutrition, supplement the active factors, etc., the skin is elastic, moisturized and white.
2.2 Cleansing products
Because of the rich variety of amino acids and antibacterial active substances in Hericium erinaceus, it can be used in beauty products to enhance the ability of cells to scavenge free radicals, provide comprehensive repair and nourishment to the skin, and enhance skin elasticity, moisturizing and lubrication. We can use this feature to develop moisturizing repair mud film, clean repair mud film, after-sun repair and amino acid cleanser.
