In the present study, the ingredients were selected keeping in view of various characteristics of the shampoo including its Appearance, Foaming ability, Detergency, Fragrance and after washing hair manageability. Shikakai and Reetha contain saponins and these have given soapy properties to the product. Jatamansi is good for hair growth, Mandukaparni whole Plant extract is used for hair maintain and growth. Modern studies have confirmed that the antibacterial activity of Sariva and Bhringaraj prevent balding and premature greying of hairs.
