Scutellaria baicalensis Effectiveness in Daily Chemical Products

What is Scutellaria baicalensis

Scutellaria baicalensis, also known as Camellia sinensis root, is a perennial herb in the genus Scutellaria of the family Lamiaceae. The dried root of Scutellaria baicalensis has been used as a traditional medicine for more than 2,000 years, and is now officially listed in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia. The main active ingredients in Scutellaria baicalensis are flavonoids, of which baicalin and baicalein have the highest content.

Baicalin is a flavonoid inducer with significant biological activities, including anti-inflammatory, diuretic, antispasmodic, immunomodulatory, anti-metamorphic, anti-tumor, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, antihypertensive, inhibition of melanin production, and removal of oxygen radicals, etc., of which anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects are particularly prominent, and occupy an important position in clinical medicine.

Baicalein, on the other hand, has prominent effects in scavenging free radicals, antioxidant, inhibiting inflammation, anti-allergy and antivirus. Studies have shown that baicalein has a strong inhibitory effect on pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus albicans, Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli.

Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract is a fully water-soluble natural cosmetic raw material extracted from the dried root of Scutellaria baicalensis. Baicalin in Scutellaria baicalensis root has strong antioxidant effects, scavenging free radicals and resisting skin aging. At the same time, baicalin also has strong inhibitory activity against skin allergy, which is a natural multi-functional cosmetic additive that combines spot-removing and whitening, sun-protection, anti-allergy, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging in one.

Skin Care Benefits of Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract – ?

Anti-inflammatory/treatment of acne

Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract is anti-inflammatory, anti-redness, hot and painful. It has an inhibitory effect on a variety of Gram-positive, Gram-negative, and pathogenic skin fungi, making it an excellent ingredient for treating acne, as well as an anti-allergic effect.

UV Protection/Repair

Baicalein, baicalin and other flavonoids have good absorption and conversion ability for ultraviolet radiation in the range of 200nm~400nm, which is a broad-spectrum sunscreen active substance that can absorb ultraviolet rays, scavenge oxygen free radicals, inhibit the production of melanin, and have a certain restorative effect on the skin that has been sunburned.

Some studies have shown that if the content of baicalin reaches 0.8g/ml, its sunscreen index can reach SPF35 Baicalin can inhibit Propionibacterium acnes: In vitro experiments have shown that the inhibition of Propionibacterium acnes by baicalin at the same concentration is 2 times that of metronidazole and 115 times that of erythromycin.


Scutellaria baicalensis extract has a large amount of proteins and amino acids, which can slow down the aging of the skin. Baicalin and baicalein also have strong “tyrosinase inhibition” activity, which can enhance the skin metabolism, increase the elasticity of the skin and anti-wrinkle. Its baicalin zinc and baicalin copper have obvious scavenging effects on superoxide radicals, preventing cell oxidation.

The role of surfactant concentration

Surfactants are substances that can form interfacial films at interfaces, as well as forming agglomerates in solvents, while significantly reducing the surface energy of water. Surfactants include ionic surfactants (including cationic surfactants and anionic surfactants), nonionic surfactants, amphoteric surfactants, complex surfactants, and other surfactants. Surfactants are categorized as ionic surfactants (including cationic surfactants and anionic

Compounding basis and classification of surfactants

The use of surfactants with each other or with other compounds is called compounding. In the solubilizing application of surfactants, if appropriate compounding can be selected, the solubilizing capacity can be greatly increased and the amount of surfactant can be reduced.
