DESIGN AND CHARACTERIZATION OF POLYHERBAL FORMULATION FOR HAIR GROWTH CONTAINING ECLIPTA ALBA, HIBISCUS ROSA-SIENSIS, TRIGONELLA FOENUM-GRAECUM LINN.Abstract
Gelling agents such as Carbopol 934 and HPMC K 100 were used in different concentrations for the preparation of Topical polyherbal extract gel formulations containing (%w/w) Eclipta alba, Hibiscus rosa-siensis, Trigonella foenum-graecum Linn. Prepared gel extract of various herbal ingredients were characterized by different parameters like gelling capacity, pH, Homogeneity, Grittiness, Extrudability, Spreadability, and Viscosity. Satisfactory results were obtained after determining the above physicochemical parameters. The release data of all designed polyherbal extracts were compared with the marketed product (2% Minoxidil) to examine marketing feasibility and formulation PG1 was shown similarity with Standard (2% Minoxidil). Hence, the designed formulation will be a good alternative for available marketed products with low cost.
