Material & Methods: The research and development model was introduced by evaluating the qualities and problems of on-market hand cream products from a group discussion. Then, develop the product with physical and chemical properties evaluation, stability test and satisfaction assessment.
Results: The sample group which previously had problems with dry, dehydrated hand skin from occupation related routines such as gardening and farming, looks for hand creams made from natural extracts that can be easily bought. From the product development, hand cream with smooth texture, light green color with scents of stevia clearly demonstrates as beneficial. The cream also holds appropriate viscosity and pH value of 5-6, without microbial, fungal growth, nor Creaming-Cracking shown. The overall satisfaction scores at a high level (x̅= 4.4). In terms of its features, 3 best qualities scoring the highest in the satisfactory test are its pleasant smell, absence of skin irritation and product design, x̅ = 4.6, 4.5, 4.6, in that order. Its convenience for frequent use comes second best with the score of 4.4.
Conclusion: The results show that stevia extract can help increasing the effectiveness of hand skincare, paving ways to the development of skincare with naturally extracted components.
