This study conducted an experiment to develop new raw ingredients for natural cosmetics by evaluating the efficacy of cosmetic products containing the extracts of Pleurotus eringii mushrooms grown without agricultural chemicals. To this end, purchased were Pleurotus eringii mushrooms grown without agricultural chemicals in South Gyeongsang province, South Korea in 2016; extraction was conductedwith 80% EeOH at room temperature after dry ing them. The study identified the excellent efficacy of the extracts after evaluating the antioxidant activity using the DPPH assay and ROS assay. According to the evaluation of he categories of moisture, oil, pH and pigment after the application of a cream-type facial mask pack containing 5% of the extracts, there were significant differences in the categories of moisture and oil on the T-zone area, and no statistically significant differences in the categories of oil change on the U-zone, pH and pigment. However as the extracts of Pleurotus eringii mushrooms had excellent efficacy in all categories compared to the control group, the efficacy of the extracts as a cosmetic raw ingredient could be identified. It is expected that this study may further contribute to developing more advanced raw ingredients, given the extract and cultivation conditions by concentration.
