Abstract:
The present study was to investigate the in vitro free radical scavenging activity of Turpentine oil and Lavender oil. Antioxidant activity of oils was studied by DPPH assay method. Carbopol 934 was used as the gelling agent and the prepared gel was then evaluated for its color, odor, pH, spread ability, Viscosity etc. UV protective study i.e. SPF determination was also performed by UV-Spectrophotometer at the range of 200-400nm. The maximum absorption for the gel and oil was found between 220-300 nm. Both Turpentine oil as well as Lavender oil having good possessed in vitro free radical scavenging activity (Anti-Oxidant activity) and Sun Protection Activity.
