ABSTRACT

Presently, the cosmetics sector is among the fastest-expanding sectors of the economy. Plenty of researchers have reported that natural surfactants could prominently replace synthetic surfactants considering the superiority in safety and effectiveness. This research aimed to isolate surfactants from custard apple peel and formulate an herbal shampoo. Initially, isolation of the saponin was accomplished followed by the formulation of herbal shampoo. Interestingly, optimized batch A demonstrated the optimum synthetic pH and high foaming capacity of shampoo for upto 4 mins. Moreover, herbal shampoo showed good cleansing properties and detergency. Additionally, it exhibited superior smoothing, no skin irritation, and a shining effect with the respect to the marketed formulation. Hence, it can be prominently used as a substitute for chemical surfactants in designing shampoo and other cosmetics.
