Synopsis Durian or Murr. (Bombacaceae) is a tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia particularly cultivated in Thailand as an economic plant. Once it is consumed, the fruit hulls are discarded as waste products. Polysaccharide gel (PG) from durian’s fruit hulls is obviously efficient for use in the preparations of food and pharmaceutical products. This research focused on biophysical assessment of PG durian’s fruit hulls for cosmetic formulation. The efficacy of facial skin capacitance and firmness increment of PG formulation were evaluated. Its application showed significant effect on skin capacitance after 28 and 56 days (=0.024 and =0.003) and significantly increased skin firmness after 56 days of treatment (=0.017) with non-allergic effect as there were no positive patch tests.

Résumé

Durian ou Dutio zibethinus Murr. (Bombacaceae) est un fruit d’Asie du Sud particulièrement cultivé en Thaïlande. Une fois le fruit consommé, les coques sont considérées comme des déchets. Le gel de polysaccharides(PG) issu des coques montre son efficacité dans la fabrication de produits alimentaires et pharmaceutiques. Cette étude se concentre sur l’évaluation biophysique des PG de coques de durians en formulation cosmétique. L’efficacité de formulation de PG a étéévaluée en mesurant la capacitance cutanée et l’évolution de la fermeté sur la peau du visage. Une nette amélioration de la capacitance a été montrée après 28 et 56 jours (P = 0.024 et P = 0.003) et la fermeté est accrue après 56 jours de traitement (P = 0.017). Aucun effet indésirable n’est relevé avec aucun patch-test positif.
