Abstract: Most of the cosmeceuticals with herbal origin have strong antioxidant activity. Because oxidative stress is one of
the major mechanisms for skin aging and dermatologic conditions, phytochemicals with proven antioxidant activity,
such as silibinin, could be useful for treating many dermatologic conditions as well as skin aging. Silibinin is a
flavonolignan compound from Silybum marianum that possesses strong antioxidant activity and also modulates
many molecular changes caused by xenobiotics and ultraviolet radiation to protect the skin (Singh et al, 2009).
Our aim was to give a brief description of the topical use of the active components of Silybum marianum.
Keywords: cosmeceuticals, topical application, Silybum marianum, silymarin, skin disorders
