"Novel marine terpenoids show great promise as a source for new antioxidant agents in cosmetic preparations, due to their good penetration-enhancing abilities, low systemic toxicity and low irritation. Fucosterol is a steroidal terpenoid extracted from Phaeophyta marine algae (Ecklonia stolonifera, Pelvetia siliquosa, Sargassum carpophyllum. Fucosterol is usually obtained as a primary compound from the non-polar fraction of algae extract. This compound shows strong antioxidant activity by increasing the concentration of antioxidant enzymes Superoxide Dismutase (SOD).
