ABSTRACT:
Herbal cosmetics are gaining popularity as nowadays most women prefer natural products over chemicals for their personal care and to enhance their beauty. Compared to other beauty products, natural cosmetics are safe to use. Synthetic colouring agents may cause allergic reactions and were found to be carcinogenic. Aim of present study was to formulate and evaluate herbal lipstick using lycopene extracted from Solanum lycopersicum L. as a colouring agent. Along with lycopene different natural ingredients such as bees wax, carnuba wax, white soft paraffin, castor oil, strawberry essence and lemon juice were used to formulate herbal lipstick. Prepared herbal lipstick were evaluated for different evaluation test such as colour, texture, pH, melting point, breaking point, softening point, surface anomalies, ageing and perfume stability and also compared with marketed standard formulation. Results showed that, different evaluation parameters of prepared herbal lipstick were resembled with standard values and with marketed formulation. Study concluded that, lycopene extracted from Solanum lycopersicum L. may be better option for synthetic colouring agent.
