EFFECTIVENESS OF CENTELLA ASIATICA EXTRACT CREAM ON WRINKLE REDUCTION AROUND THE EYES FOR THAI FEMALE
Keywords:Centella asiatica Extract Cream, Elasticity of The Skin, Effectiveness
The researcher has studied 1) the effectiveness with wrinkles around the eyes from the extract of Centella asiatica extract cream when compared with the counter brand cream, and 2) evaluate the side effects of using Centella asiatica extract on wrinkle reduction around the eyes. This study was conducted in Thai female volunteers, age between 30-45 years from 35 people. One side of the eye applied Centella asiatica extract cream and the other side of the eye applied counter brand cream. The volunteers will be treated with cream twice, in the morning and bedtime for 12 weeks. The results of the study after applied the Centella asiatica extract cream to test elasticity by Cutometer showed that there was an increase in the elasticity of the skin around the eyes after 8 weeks of continuous use, equivalent to the counter brand cream. The test of the roughness, the smoothness and width of the wrinkles of the skin by Visioscan machine found that the roughness of the skin under the eyes with Centella asiatica cream decreased in the 4th week of treatment, which was faster than the counter brand cream. But in the end of the eyes, there was no change in both groups. The smoothness of the skin under the eyes has increased in the 4th week of treatment, equivalent to both groups whereas the skin in the end of the eyes, the Centella asiatica extract cream increased in the 4th week, which is faster than the counter brand cream. The width of the wrinkles of the skin under the eyes decreased in the 4th week of treatment, equivalent to both groups. But the skin in the end of the eyes using the Centella asiatica extract cream decreased in the 4th week, which is faster than the counter brand cream. The moisture of the skin was tested by Comeometer and Visioscan. It was found that the Centella asiatica extract cream had a little increase, which is less that the counter brand cream. Additionally both groups did not experience side effects on the skin. Moreover, the volunteers were satisfied with the Centella asiatica extract cream more than the counter brand cream.
