- Coconut Milk, Hyperpigmentation
Coconut milk is a milk-white liquid and comes from grated coconut meat which is moistened and then squeezed and filtered. Coconut milk can be used to soften the skin, and can eliminate black spots on the face, because it is rich in natural fatty acids and contains antiseptics. Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that is characterized by dark skin patches caused by an increasing amount of melanin (a skin dye) which is the body substance responsible for the appearance of skin color (pigment). The objectives of this study are: 1) to provide alternative cosmetics to thin out hyperpigmentation on facial skin, 2) determine the negative reaction caused by coconut milk in the process of thinning hyperpigmentation of face skin. This type of research is experimental research. The assessment criteria used consist of a skin color chart to measure hyperpigmentation thinning, whether irritations arise, changes in face skin conditions and other complaints during treatment. The results of an experiment involving 5 people as research samples with 12 times the use of coconut milk obtained results showed that all subjects experienced depletion but each thinning subject varied according to the hyperpigmentation color chart. Coconut milk is proven to be used as an alternative cosmetic ingredient to thin out hyperpigmentation on face skin.
