Different batches were prepared by changing the concentrations of stearic acid and cetyl alcohol. Prepared formulations were characterized by pH, viscosity, Spreadability, homogeneity, washability, after feel effect, irritancy, dilution test, test for microbial growth and in vitro occlusivity test. Result and Discussion: All the formulations were found to be oil in water type emulsions with good homogeneity and easy washability. pH of all formulated creams was comparable with skin pH. Viscosity results gave the consistency and spreadability results have revealed that cream is spreadable on the skin. In vitro occlusivity test indicates the prevention of water loss ant it was found more for F2 formulation.
