[Objective] To study the moisture retention capacity of tremella polysaccharides,so as to provide theoretical basis for its application in cosmetics.[Method] Different proportions of tremella polysaccharide were added into the same cosmetics formulation,and the moisture retention capacity of the cosmetics was determined and then compared with that of hyaluronic acid cosmetics according to the determination methods formulated by Beijing Technology and Business Technology,as well as the CM825 skin moisture tester developed by Germany CK company.[Result] The cosmetics added with 0.05% tremella polysaccharides already had better moisture retention capacity than that added with 0.02% hyaluronic acid.The cosmetics product in this study had the best moisture retention capacity when added with 0.10% tremella polysaccharide.[Conclusion] The water retention capacity of tremella polysaccharide is equivalent to that of hyaluronic acid,it can replace hyaluronic acid to be used in cosmetics and receive good economic benefits.
