Abstract

Moringa oleifera leaf extract has an antioxidant activity so it can be used to protect the skin. The aim of this study is to determine the extract specification and formulation in lotion and gel as sunscreen agent. Moringa oleifera leaf extract was obtained by maceration method using ethanol 70%. The extracts were identified for chemical content and specification test of extract. After that, extract was formulated into gel and lotion. The evaluation of gel and lotion includes physical characteristics (spreadability and adhesivity) and the value of Sun Protection Factor. The result showed that Moringa oleifera leaf extract contained alcaloids, flavonoids and poliphenols. The value of moisture content, ash content, acid soluble ash, and β-caroten were 5.75%, 0.19%, 0.16%, and 0.46%, respectively. The IC50 of antioxidant activity was 516.28. The value of Sun Protection Factor of the 5% octyl metoxycinnamate solution, gel (contain 5% extract), and lotion (contain 5% extract) were 33.25, 34.75, 24.98, and 25.89, respectively. The lotion and the gels have a strong sunscreen activity and meet the requirements of physical properties for preparations.
