Aging is the gradual loss of tissue's ability to repair and maintain its normal structure and function. The most common cause of premature skin aging is due to induced sun exposure. This research was conducted using purified extract of apuh-apuhan leaf as an active substance in serum preparations and testing as anti-collagenase, anti-elastase, and anti-tyrosinase as antiaging. Determination of flavonoid levels was carried out using UV-Vis spectrophotometry and the results obtained were total flavonoid levels of 8.222±0.03 mgQE/g. The combination of ingredients used in the manufacture of serum are carbopol, triethanolamine, propylene glycol, methylparaben, propylparaben, and aquades. The results of the serum preparation formula for the purified extract of apuh-apuhan leaf have a clear green color, semi-viscous texture, have a pH of 5.5 and a viscosity of 1310 cP, the results obtained are quite good. In testing the collagenase enzyme at concentrations of 500 ppm, 1000 ppm and 2000 ppm had inhibition percentages of 38.91%, 45.15% and 53.61%. The concentration used on the activity of the tyrosinase enzyme obtained the percentage of inhibition of 42.45%, 45.68% and 45.80%. These concentrations were used in testing the elastase enzyme, getting results of 62.83%, 84, 71% and 89.24%. So it can be concluded that purified extract of apuh-apuhan leaves has antiaging activity.
