The Population Reference Bureau (PRB) estimates that Indonesia will experience a population surge to 365.3 million by 2030, which will further affect the surge in the elderly population and increase health problems occurring in the elderly. One of the elderly health problems that often occur on the skin is skin hydration. The purpose of this study is to look for an increase in the hydration level of elderly skin after intervention studies in the form of Klentiq oil. This research is a quasi-experimental study, with a total sampling method in the form of sampling. The study was conducted at the STW RIA Pembangunan Cibubur in September 2019, using the statistical test Repeated Measurement results a significant increase in hydration (p-value <0.001) between measurements after giving intervention in the form of Klentiq Oil. The highest increase of  hydration level is between the measurement of week zero and week three which is 2,637 (0,300)%. It is advisable to continuously (routinely) use Klentiq oil for at least 3 weeks in order to improve the hydration level and skin hydration status, and doesn’t have to worry about being used in the long term usage.


Population Reference Bureau (PRB) memperkirakan bahwa Indonesia akan mengalami lonjakan populasi menjadi 365,3 juta jiwa pada tahun 2030 yang selanjutnya akan berdampak terhadap lonjakan populasi lanjut usia serta peningkatan permasalahan kesehatan yang terjadi pada lansia. Salah satu permasalahan kesehatan lansia yang sering terjadi pada kulit adalah masalah hidrasi kulit. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah untuk mencari peningkatan kadar hidrasi kulit lansia setelah penelitian intervensi berupa minyak Klentiq. Penelitian ini merupakan penelitian quasi eksperimental, dengan metode pengambilan sampel berupa total sampling. Penelitian dilakukan di Panti STW RIA Pembangunan Cibubur pada periode September 2019. Variabel bebas dalam penelitian ini adalah penggunaan Minyak Klentiq selama 21 hari dan variabel tergantung dalam penelitian ini adalah perubahan kadar hidrasi kulit lengan kanan bawah. Hubungan antar variabel di uji dengan Repeated Measurement. Terdapat 51 responden yang memenuhi kriteria inklusi dan mengikuti penelitian hingga akhir. Uji statistik Repeated Measurement didapatkan hasil kenaikan hidrasi kulit pada lengan kanan bawah yang bermakna (p-value < 0,001) antar pengukuran setelah pemberian intervensi berupa Minyak Klentiq. Peningkatan kadar hidrasi lengan kanan bawah paling tinggi adalah antara pengukuran minggu ke nol dengan minggu ke tiga yaitu sebesar 2,637 (0,300)%. Sebagai kesimpulan, Minyak Klentiq terbukti meningkatkan kadar hidrasi kulit pada lansia (p-value < 0,001) dengan pemakaian selama 21 hari.
