Abstract :

The main objective of these research study was to formulate herbal powder shampoo using natural ingredients. “Multani Mitti” or Fuller’s earth is a popular substance as a home remedy. It has been traditionally used as a cleanser for skin & hair in world centuries.
The major function of shampoo is to clean hair, removals of oils, dirt’s, scalp debris and accumulated sebum. Synthetic preservatives and detergents have been linked to negative customer impact in the past. Incorporating natural extracts with functionality comparable to synthetic chemicals is a more extreme way to decreasing synthetic compounds. Our herbal powder shampoo is made up of Multani mitti, Fenugreek, Amla, Banana extract, Hibiscus, Jasmin, Green tea, Reetha, and Curry leaves, all effective in hair care. Banana is popularly used in skin cosmetics but here, in our formulation we used banana extract as a moisturizing, conditioning agent because of banana containing several elements which are beneficial for hair and scalp health. The combination of many herbal-derived ingredients has resulted in a highly effective dry powder shampoo. This formulation was done at a laboratory scale and evaluated number of parameters such as Bulk density, Tap density, Porosity, Ash value, Solubility, pH, Foaming index.
Key words: Multani mitti, Banana extract, Herbal powder shampoo.
