In developed and developing countries, the aging population growth rapidly and the consumption of natural product which rich antioxidant increasing. The aim of this study was to investigate the ABTS reducing activity and anti-collagenase activity of scutellarein and apigenin. This study used ABTS reducing activity for antioxidant assay and collagenase inhibitory activity for antiaging assay. Scutellarein (16.77 μg/ml) has higher antioxidant activity through ABTS reducing activity compared with apigenin (80.19 μg/ml). Scutellarein (99.20 μg/ml) has higher antiaging activity through collagenase inhibitory activity compared with apigenin (211.67 μg/ml). Scutellarein has very strong antioxidant activity through ABTS reduction activity and strong antiaging property particularly as collagenase inhibitor. Apigenin has strong antioxidant activity through ABTS reduction activity and weak antiaging property particularly as collagenase inhibitor.
