Formulation Of Coenzyme Q10 Liquid Foundation With a Variations Virgin Coconut Oil as The Oil Phase
AbstractCoenzyme Q10 is a compound with potent antioxidants that can protect the skin from exposure to U.V. rays. Therefore researchers formulated a liquid foundation moisturizer coenzyme Q10 with VCO oil phase, which is able to provide many benefits. In addition, VCO is able to provide good physical characteristics to the preparation. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of variations in the concentration of virgin coconut oil on the physical characteristics of the preparation and to determine the formula with the most preferred concentration of VCO by the public. The methodology in this research is evaporation emulsification with a 500 rpm magnetic stirrer for 10 minutes. Moisturizer liquid foundation is made by mixing the oil phase into the water phase above a water bath at a temperature of 70oC and adding white pigment to form an ivory color. The results showed that the higher the concentration of VCO, the lower the pH, viscosity, and adhesion of the preparation, and the greater the spreadability. In addition to testing the physical characteristics, the researchers also conducted a preference test, and the results obtained were that the respondents preferred formula 3 with a VCO concentration of 7%. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and linear regression with a 95% confidence level.
