Abstract

Objectives: Noni fruit (Morinda citrifolia L) containing ursolic acid and 3,3’ bisdemethylpinoresinol can be useful as an anti-wrinkle agent. The hydrogel face mask is an alternative skin care product. Methods: In this study, 0.1% ethanol extract of noni fruit was formulated with a concentration of 4% sodium alginate and 0.5% xanthan gum to form the hydrogel face mask. Physical stability of the hydrogel face mask was evaluated using organoleptic observation, consistency rates, swelling index measurements, and mechanical strength. Results: The results showed that the hydrogel face mask has good water holding capacity, a tensile strength of 35.6524±0.8842 kgf/cm2, an elongation rate of 272.00±4.47%, and remains stable in color and odor for 12 weeks. Conclusions: This study revealed that the hydrogel face mask containing an ethanol extract of noni fruit is stable and has good physical characteristics; therefore, the hydrogel face mask is satisfactory for use as a nutracosmeceutical product.
