Abstract


Green tea (Camellia sinensis L.) has the main efficacy as an antioxidant and contains polyphenol compounds in green tea leaves with the main component of polyphenol fraction namely Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) which has strong activity to prevent free radicals that cause premature aging. Research has been carried out on the formulation of maskantioxidant preparations containing green tea leaf extract. The study begins with testing the antioxidant activity of ethanol extract of green tea leaves with a free radical reduction method of 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl using visible spectrophotometry. Testing of antioxidant activity showed that the ethanol extract of green tea leaves gave an IC50 value of 3.17µg / mL. Formulations of gel masks made were F0 (base without active substances), F1 (base + concentration of ethanol extract of green tea leaves for IC50 (0,000317%)), F2 (base + concentration of ethanol extract of green tea leaves for 50xIC50 (0, 0158%)), F3 (base + concentration of ethanol extract of green tea leaves for 100xIC50 (0.0317%)), F4 (base + concentration of ethanol extract of green tea leaves for IC50), F5 (base + concentration of ethanol extract of green tea leaves worth IC50), F6 (base + concentration of ethanol extract of green tea leaves for IC50. Evaluation of gel mask preparations include, organoleptic examination and homogeneity,


pH, viscosity, dry time of preparation and testing of antioxidant stability. F2 provides better and higher free radical reduction activity than products on the market. F4, F5, F6 shows an increase in free radical reduction activity.
