Author(s):

Abstract:

Neem, Tulsi, and Aloe Vera have been utilised to cure numerous skin disorders since ancient times. It is a preventive, curative and healing Ayurvedic cream for dry skin, cuts, scratches, minor burns, wounds, cold sores and chapped skin. In this study, several components were combined with Neem leaves (Azrachta indica), Tulsi leaves (Ocimum sanctum), and Aloe Vera (Curacao aloes) to make a poly herbal cream. The coarse powder was kept for further research. The extract was evaporated in a rotary evaporator, and the ethanol extracts were kept in a desiccator for further research. The extracts were combined with a variety of substances and excipients to create a poly herbal cream. The cream was tested for pH, viscosity, spread ability, centrifugation, accelerated stability studies, and microbial stability, among other criteria. The accelerated stability tests were carried out in a stability chamber for 20 days at room and higher temperatures. After centrifugation and stability testing, the cream was confirmed to be stable. There was no phase separation. For bacterial growth (E. coli) and yeast, the microbiological stability was tested. The results demonstrated that the cream's microbiological stability did not include any microbial growth.
