Turmeric has been found to have some efficacies in repairing the skin texture including its ability to enlighten the color of the skin associated to premature skin aging. This study aims to compare between the 0.25% turmeric extract cream and grated turmeric in skin color change. Samples in this study were collected from women subjects that were selected randomly and consecutively. There were 22 women subjects involved in this study that were assigned into two treatment groups: group I with one application a day and group II with two applications a day. Each subject in both groups applied 0.25% turmeric extract cream in upper right arm, control (4% Hydroquinone) in lower right and left arms, and grated turmeric in upper left arm. The treatment responses were evaluated by skin analyzer measuring the pigment number at day 0, 8, and 21. Data were analyzed statistically by Willcoxon test. Study findings indicated significant differences (p<0,05) between twice application of 0. 25% turmeric cream extract and 4% Hq at day 8 (2.30) on skin changes (pigment). There was also a significant difference (p<0,05) when comparing the 0,25 turmeric extract in twice application a day between H21-H0 and H21-H8.
