    BERITA SOLO - Five students in the city of Surabaya managed to make face wash soap made from jengkol skin. These students are members of the Student Creativity Program (PKM) Team of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Airlangga University (Unair).

    The team consisting of Mazhar Ardhina Silmi, Kholidatul fauziyah, Diah Ayu Laraswati, Arya Pratiwi Nursanti, and Rizki Amalia Arifiani made a product called "Djengkolic" Antiaging Facial Wash & Scrub.

    Head of the Unair Faculty of Pharmacy PKM Team, Mazhar Ardhina Silmi said that the team chose to make a natural beauty product or skincare by utilizing jengkol skin waste because besides wanting to help break down waste, the jengkol skin itself contains many ingredients that are good for the body.

    "The seeds are often used for food. Most of the people of Indonesia know jengkol as a commodity consumed," he said on Thursday (6/27/2019).

    In the field of beauty itself, he explained, the use of jengkol as a cosmetic ingredient is still very minimal and less popular compared to other natural ingredients. Many studies have shown that jengkol skin contains various chemical compounds including flavonoids, saponins, and tannins.

    Furthermore, he also explained, flavonoids function as antioxidants, saponins function to prevent premature aging, shrink the pores of the face and smooth the skin. Whereas tannins function as antioxidants and are antibacterial and vitamin C which functions as an antioxidant while brightening the skin.

    "Therefore this team also tried to make natural beauty products namely Djengkolic by utilizing jengkol skin research which was used as a facial wash and facial scrub as skin lightening and antiaging," he explained.

    Djengkolic products are made in 2-in-1 or two products in one package, facial wash and facial scrub.

    Products are designed in packaging that is simple, practical, and easy to use. The product form of Djengkolic itself is a gel containing the main ingredient of jengkol skin extract with the addition of fine jengkol skin granules as exfoliator.
