    "From recipes of traditional Chinese medicine for the treatemnt of hyperpigmentation diseases, we selected 90 herb formulations and prepared their ethanol and water extracts to evaluate their depigmentation activity. The 90 candidate herb extracts were first screened in Mel-Ab cells and then the effective herb extracts from the primary screening were assessed further in melan-a cells for their depigmentation activity and their cytotoxicity as well. Through the two screening procedures, we found 9 herb extracts, ethanol extracts of Rhizoma Chuan Xiong, Ligusticum sinense Oliv, Radix Ophiopogonis, Semen Gingko, Radix Clematidis, Folium Perillae and Fls Carthami at the concentration of 20mg/ml, ethanol extracts of Ramulus Cinnamoni at the concentration of 10mg/ml, and water extract of Galla Chinensis at the concentration of mg/ml, to have significant depigmentation activity more than that of arbutin but without cytotoxicity in mouse melanocyte cell lines."
