Abstract

PREPARATION AND EVALUATION OF HERBAL POWDERED SHAMPOO

Monalisa Nayak*, Simanchal Panda and Suchismita Pani

ABSTRACT

Today‟s shampoo formulations are beyond the stage of pure cleaning of the hair. Additional benefits are expected, e.g., conditioning, smoothing of the hair surface, good health of hair, i.e., hair free of dandruff, dirt, grease and lice and, above all, its safety benefits are expected. To evaluate the prepared formulations, quality control tests including visual assessment and physicochemical controls such as pH, density and viscosity were performed. Physical appearance/visual inspection, Determination of pH, Determine percent of solids contents, Rheological evaluations, Dirt dispersion, Cleaning action, Surface tension measurement, Detergency ability, Foaming ability and foam stability, The preparations were formulated using bahera, amla, neem, tulsi, shikakai, henna & brahmi 20, 25, 30,10,1,12,1,1%. Ash value is calculated to determine the inorganic contents which are characteristic for an herb. Particle size Angle of repose Bulk density 25- 20 micrometer 20.550 5/g/cc of powdered shampoo. Average % foaming capacity, total Ash, acid insoluble, Moisture Content, pH value 151.8, 4.45 % w/w, 2.35%, 2.00% w/w, 6.5 was found respectively. Cleaning percentage, surface tension, detergency, viscocity, foaming ability and foaming solubility was found to be 24.21, 32.15dyne/cm, 64.23%, 94607.84 cps, 170 ml respectively. In the present scenario, it seems improbable that herbal shampoo, although better in performance and safer than the synthetic ones, will be popular with the consumers.

Keywords: Herbal Shampoo, Evaluation, physico-chemical approach, cleaning action, foaming capacity
