 Abstract
The purpose of this study is to investigate the anti-inflammation effect of the mixture, consisting of a series of different ratio of Ecklonia cava extract and scoria. Also, to make more functional scoria powder into cosmetic material, studies on the toxicity by cell viability assay. Scoria is found in large amounts in Jeju Island, as an adsorbent of heavy metal ions (Ni2+, Zn2+, and Cr3+) in an aspect of its efficient utilization. Marine plants such as Ecklonia cava contain high amounts of polyphenolic antioxidants. The purpose of this study was to examine the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammation effects of combination of mixture of Eckloina cava extrat and scoria with optimal ratio. Therefore, this study suggested that combination of mixture of Eckloina cava extrat and scoria and its attenuated the oxidative and inflammatory reactions.
