Face masks with various well-known brands are now easy to get, but not a few of them cause skin problems, this is due to the excessive content of certain chemicals or chemicals that are harmful to the body. In this study, a face mask was made using seaweed as a base material with the addition of several natural ingredients such as coffee powder, rice flour and turmeric powder, then tested the antioxidant content of each face mask. The types of face masks made are powder masks, cream masks, and gel masks. The steps taken include sample preparation, making seaweed powder, making rice flour, making coffee powder, making turmeric powder, making masks, and analytical tests (organoleptic, irritation, pH, drying time, and antioxidants). Facial masks that have very strong antioxidant activity are cream 2 with an IC50 value of 8.31 ppm, cream 2 masks have very strong antioxidant activity because they have an IC50 value below 10 ppm while powder mask 1 has a lower antioxidant activity value than other masks, which is 31.98 ppm. The results showed the use of seaweed, rice, turmeric, coffee, and honey to be a good alternative to reduce the use of harmful chemicals in the manufacture of face masks.
