The green tea polysaccharide was extracted from leaves of Camellia sinensis and hydrolyzed with enzyme. Skin moisturization effect of green tea polysaccharide was studied with 2D- PAGE analysis of epidermal hydration factors. Among up-regulated proteins extracted from Hacat cell treated with Green tea polysaccharide on 2DE gel, 5 aquaporins were observed. Among them the aquaporin 5 and 8 were increased 3.4 and 5.3 times respectively. The green tea polysaccharide was found to be effective for skin moisturization by enhanced expression of aquaporins.

Keywords: green tea, polysaccharide, moisturization, aquaporin
