UNIVERSITI Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) and South Korean researchers have found an anti-ageing agent in the traditional herb kacip fatimah which stimulates the production of collagen and acts as an anti-oxidant, reported Kosmo!

The research conducted by UTM’s Faculty of Chemical Engineering professor Dr Mohamad Roji Sarmidi and South Korea’s Dongguk University’s Chemistry and Bio- chemical Department professor Dr Chan Seo-par showed that the herb could make the skin fairer.

UTM vice-chancellor Datuk Dr Zaini Ujang said extracts from the kacip fatimah leaves could also curb the production of melanin, which darkens the skin as well as reduces sunburn.

Kacip fatimah, better known for boosting women’s health, has now been found to be effective in skin care, he said, adding that Dongguk University was chosen because it had a research laboratory to conduct tests that was not available in Malaysia.
