Abstract

Anti-collagenase activity of tea brew of Sri Lankan low grown orthodox Orange Pekoe grade black tea (Camellia sinensis L.) was evaluated using five concentrations (25, 50, 75, 100 and 200 µg/ml) of black tea brew (BTB) made according to ISO specifications. Anti-collagenase activity of BTB and tea catechin, epigallocatechingallate (EGCG) were ascertained in vitro using collagenase enzyme from Clostridium histolyticum and a synthetic substrate (FALGPA) using spectroscopy. BTB induced marked and significant (P < 0.05) anti-collagenase activity (IC50 = 80.04 ± 2.34 µg/ml). This effect was dose dependent. Moreover, anti-collagenase activity of BTB was superior to EGCG (IC50 = 112.12 ± 0.93 µg/ml), a well known anti-collagenase phytoconstituent of green tea. The results convincingly show that Sri Lankan low grown orthodox Orange Pekoe grade black tea possesses remarkable anti-collagenase activity in vitro and display its promise to be developed as a potent anti-aging skin nutraceutical.
