Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica) and Robusta coffee (Coffea Canephora) are natural ingredients that are easily found in the Indonesia environment and contain various types of antioxidants that can provide anti-aging effects or prevent premature aging so that the potential is large enough for development in the science of dermatocosmetology. The aim of this research is to compare the effectiveness of anti-aging extracts of gotu kola herb and robusta coffee toward the levels of hydration in the skin of male white mice. The research data that were processed showed that the data were abnormally distributed (p <0.05). The highest percentage increase in skin hydration level was found in the 10% Robusta coffee treatment group followed by 10% gotu kola herb extract and control. The mean percentage increase in skin hydration levels in all treatment groups was 43.6% with a standard deviation of 27.3. The percentage difference of hydration levels in skin among these groups was significant (p <0.005).
