Under the action of Honokiol, antioxidant capacity of human body has been improved. And excessive free radicals produced by aging body can be quickly eliminated. Thereby, further chain reaction of oxygen free radical is blocked, and per-oxidation process of tissues and cells is inhibited. Thus Honokiol can exert its anti-aging effect. Moreover, the scavenging capacity of Honokiol on free radicals is stronger than that of classic antioxidant ascorbic acid. And Honokiol can also inhibit tyrosinase activity; so it has certain whitening function, and can be used in cosmetics as skin whitening agent.
