Contemporary society, the era of the 4th industrial revolution, has been enjoying a boom in the cosmetics industry due to the launch of cosmetics through new technology development due to the interest in the beauty industry. However, the cosmetics industry is booming, but dry eye syndrome, skin trouble, Hormonal disturbances, and many other side effects. In order to prove the universal use value of pine needles as a natural cosmetic material that can complement the side effects of existing chemical ingredients cosmetics harmful to human body, and to propose a roll model of desirable natural cosmetics, DPPH radical scavenging activity, ABTS assay, and flavonoid content were studied. The results showed that both the DPPH radical and ABTS radical scavenging activity increased in both the $70^{\circ}C$ and $100^{\circ}C$ pine water hot water extracts. The extracts from the pine tree extracts at $70^{\circ}C$ and $100^{\circ}C$ showed $32.0{\pm}2.5mg\;QE/ml$ and 116.8 A total flavonoid of ${\pm}5.5mg\;QE/ml$ was detected. Therefore, it is considered that the pine needle hydrothermal extract having a large amount of antioxidant which is advantageous to human body is highly applicable as a natural cosmetic material harmless to the human body.
