Sweet orange contains flavonoids and citric acid that have the potential as a capping agent in the nanosilver biosynthesis process. The antibacterial activity of silver can be increased in nanoparticles, then it can be applied to treat acne through a peel-off mask preparation. Glycerin and Polyethylene glycol 400 are humectants that combined to obtain good physicochemical properties of the preparation. This study aims to determine the character of nanosilver biosynthesis and the effect of humectant combination on the physicochemical properties of the preparation. The characterization of nanosilver was employed by UV-VIS Spectrophotometry, Particle Size Analysis, and Scanning Electron Microscope. The Glycerin- PEG 400 combination was F1 (0:100%); F2 (25:75%); F3 (50:50%); F4 (75:25%) and F5 (100:0%). The results of nanosilver biosynthesis have an absorption peak of nanoparticles at 421-423nm, rod shape, the particle size of 83.2±7.2nm. Statistical analysis showed that the combination of Glycerin- PEG 400 had a significant effect on organoleptic, viscosity, and dry time, but did not affect the pH of preparation. The combination of Glycerin-PEG 400 (75%:25%) is the best formula because it has stable viscosity, dry time, and pH value during storage for four weeks.Keywords: nanosilver, biosynthesis, Citrus sinensis, humectants, peel off mask

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by the appearance of lesions on the skin. The current treatment aims to control the symptoms. The efficacy of Stachytarpheta jamaicensis (L.) Vahl’s for autoimmune rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus has been tested in animal models. The aim of this research was to evaluate the effect of the water extract of S. jamaicensis leaves on psoriasis model animal (male Balb/c mice) induced topically by imiquimod. The water extract of S. jamaicensis leaves is made by boiling. The animal was divided into groups: normal, control, methotrexate 0.2 mg/kgBW, the extract (doses 25, 50 and 100 mg/kgBW). The measured parameters were the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score and skin histopathology. The results showed that all doses of the extract could reduce the PASI score when compared to the control group. Histological results showed that there was a decrease in keratin growth in test animals that were given the extract. Extracts at doses of 25 and 50 mg/kgBW can reduce the thickening of keratin in the epidermis of the back and ears. It can be concluded that the water extract of S. jamaicensis leaf has the most effective activity to prevent psoriasis recurrence in the dose range of 25 and 50 mg/kgBW.Keywords: Psoriasis, Stachytarpheta jamaicensis leaf water extract, PASI, keratin, imiquimod

This research was conducted to identify simplicia microscopically, phytochemical screening and determination of total flavonoid content of extract and ethyl acetate fraction from Moringa (Moringa oleifera L.) leaves using UV-Visible Spectrophotometry method. The experimental design used in this study was to perform microscopic identification of Moringa leaf powder simplicia, make 96% and 70% ethanol extract and ethyl acetate fraction of Moringa leaves from 70% ethanol extract, then carry out phytochemical screening and determination of total flavonoid content with quercetin standards. Phytochemical screening on the ethyl acetate fraction of Moringa leaves included tests for the content of flavonoids, saponins, tannins and alkaloids. The results of microscopic identification of Moringa leaf simplicia showed the presence of calcium oxalate crystals in the form of rosettes, mesophyll and stomata. The result of determination of total flavonoid content in 96% ethanol extract was 16.69 ± 0.74% (w/w), 70% ethanol extract was 10.84 ± 0.49% (w/w), Moringa leaf ethyl acetate fraction 14 .45 ± 0.90% (w/w). The highest total flavonoid content was found in the 96% ethanol extract of Moringa leaves in accordance with the 2017 Indonesian Herbal Pharmacopoeia, that the thick extract of Moringa leaves containing no less than 6.30% (w/w) total flavonoids was calculated as quercetin.
