Pharmacognostic evaluation and formulation of shampoo using Sarcostigma kleinii wight & ARN leaves Fam: Icacinaceae

Elizabeth Abraham P and Dr. Jyoti Harindran
Diseases are born since man was created and drugs came into existence from that early time to remove pain and to cure these diseases. History of drugs is thus as old as mankind. They are obtained from nature, plants, animals, minerals or are of synthetic origin. Natural drugs obtained from plants and animals are called drugs of biological origin. Active principles usually secondary metabolites, having their therapeutic use are produced in their living cells. Different parts of Sarcostigma kleinii usually known in Malayalam as vellodal was used traditionally in rheumatism, leprosy, hysteria and ulcers. The present study deals with the phytochemical, morphological, microscopic evaluation (Transverse sectional view) of fresh leaves and formulation of shampoo from ethyl alcohol extract of Sarcostigma kleinii (EAESk). Phytochemical analysis shows the presence of alkaloids, carbohydrates, steroids, triterpenoids, glycosides, flavanoids, tannins and phenols. Transverse sectional view of fresh leaf shows the characters of dicot angiosperms.
