For the use of tannins in the whitening-effect cosmetics, inhibitory effect against tyrosinase activity was determined. Three condensed tannins including gallocatechin, gallocatechin 3',4'-di-O-gallate and epicatechin 3-O-gallate and three hydrolyzable tannins, 1,2,6-tri-O-galloyl-${\beta}$-D-glucose, 2,3-(S)-HHDP-D-glucose and pedunculagin showed 15-29% mild inhibitory effects against tyrosinase activity.
