The interest on herbal medicines and their utilization have been increasing rapidly in recent years. Plant derived substances and herbal medicines have recently attracted the interest towards their versatile application, as medicinal plants. Medicinal plants are the richest source of bioactive compounds used in traditional and modern medicines. The present work is to formulate and evaluate the ointment of ethanolic extract of Anogeissus latifolia bark. The prepared extract also used to determine the membrane stabilizing effect. The ethanolic extracts were prepared by using maceration method. The ointment base was prepared and formulation of ointment was done by incorporating the extract in the base by levigation method. After completion of formulation it was evaluated for its physicochemical parameters like colour, odour, pH, spreadability, viscosity, consistency, diffusion study, solubility, washability. Also the formulation was evaluated for its stability at various temperature conditions which shows no change in the irritancy, spreadability and diffusion study. Thus it could become a media to use the medicinal properties of Anogeissus latifolia bark effectively and easily as a simple dosage form.
