Abstract

The present study aims at formulation of polyherbal vanishing cream and face wash, determination of total flavonoid content of herbs used, evaluation of formulations for various physical parameters followed by antibacterial and antifungal activities. The problems of premature ageing, damage due to irradiation, loss of pigmentation, moisture, nourishment, and acne can be solved by supplementation of health benefits provided by selected multiple herbs in the formulations. The use of polyherbal vanishing cream and face wash promotes skin health and beauty. The selected nine herbs in vanishing cream and eleven herbs in face wash formulations contain good amount of flavonoids capable of protecting skin against damage. The total flavonoid content of herbs used was determined, followed by evaluation of various physical parameters such as pH, viscosity, spreadability and compared with marketed formulations. Further, the formulations were tested against gram positive S.aureus, gram negative E.coli, and fungus C.albicans which are common associates of acne and cosmetic appliances. The results indicated that both the formulations displayed better antibacterial and antifungal activities than marketed formulations. Therefore, they can be tested further for their performance and quality control parameters.
