S. N. Narayan Singh*, Rajeev Satarthy and Dr. Rasmi Kumari

ABSTRACT

Herbs have been used from antiquity and were the first medicine used by man. Even in cosmetics, herbs are first choice. Dendruff is the most common hair problem which is caused by the fungus Malasezzia furfur’. The plant drug obtained from K.galanga, have good antidandruff activity against the M.furfur. The plant extract was formulated as gels using the polymers Sodium CMC, HEC and Carbopol 934. Optimizations of gels were carried out in terms of appearance, pH, viscosity and spreadability. Though the physical properties of gels formulated with Carbopol 934 were better than Sodium CMC, it was observed that there was maximum release of marker content in Sodium CMC gels. Conclusion: Thus from the present study it can be concluded that topical application of K.galanga (5%), in the Sodium CMC gel base can be of potential use for local antifungal activity against dandruff causing fungus M.furfur

Keywords: Malasezzia furfur, SodiumCMC, HEC, Carbopol.
