Corn (Zea mays L) is a plant known for its antioxidant properties. The utilization of corn by-products, particularly pharmaceutical derived from corn leaf, has not been widely explored. Therefore, this research aims to formulatea corn leaf peel-off mask gel at concentrations of 0.5%, 1%, 1.5%, and 3%. The assessment of the corn leaf peel-off mask gel quality involves physical evaluations, characteristic tests, as well as antioxidant activity. The results indicates that Corn Leaf Extract can be formulated into a peel-off mask gel, meets the dosage quality tests, includingorganoleptic, homogeneity, pH, and spreadability. Antioxidant test results show that the 3% corn leaf peel-off mask gelexhibits strong antioxidant value of 2.57411 ppm.
