"The purpose of this study was to evaluate tyrosinase inhibitory activity of plant extracts, especially Korean indigenous plants, for the cosmetic
use of skin whitening. When 50 plant extracts were tested, the methanol extracts of Agrimonia pilosa, Aster scaber, Dianthus sinensis, Fatsia
juponicu, Hemistepta lyrata. Lespedeza cuneuta, Osmunda japonicum. Pyrolujuponica, Rodgersia phodophyllu and Veratrumgrandiforum
possessed the considerable tyrosinase inhibitory activity. Especially, L. cuneata, aerial part of 0. juponicum and V. gand$orum exhibited the
strong inhibition. In particular, the methanol extract of V. grandiforwm and its ethylacetate fraction showed potent inhibition,...These plant
extracts may be used as tyrosinase inhibitors in cosmetics."

"The essential oils derived from plants are plant derived effective components which have at least one property selected from the group
consisting of anti-microorganism properties, deodorizing properties, anti-allergenic properties anti-oxidation properties, anti-inflammation
properties, relaxation properties, aroma-therapeutic properties, moistrurizing properties, noxious-minor-creature rejective actions, nd which are
exemplified below. For example, essential oil-related, crude drug-related, and the other related components can be exemplified. As for the
essential oil related ones, effective components, which are derived from Anise, West Indian Sandalwood, Angelica,... Agrimonia Pilosa, Licium
