Abstract

The growth of Pityrosporum ovale causes an inflammatory reaction both due to metabolite products that enter the epidermis and fungal cells itself through the activity of T lymphocytes and Langerhans cells. This causes discomfort and insecurity. Treatment of dandruff usually uses shampoos but some people often experience allergic contact dermatitis due to the chemical side effects of these shampoos. Jeruk purut (Citrus Hystrix) leaves are easily found in Indonesia and are natural ingredients that contain anti-fungal compounds, namely flavonoids and tannins. This type of research was a laboratory experiment with the sensitivity test method of the diffusion disk method. The sample used was 5 kg of citrus hystrix leaves and incubated for 48-72 hours. This study used a concentration of 25%, 50%, 75%, the negative control contained aquadest, while the positive control used 2% ketoconazloe. Experiments were carried out three times. The results showed that the highest inhibition zone diameter was at a concentration of 75%, namely 16.20 mm.
