FORMULATION AND EVALUATION OF CAMELLIA SINENSIS LEAF EXTRACT INCORPORATED VANISHING CREAM FOR PHOTO-CHEMO PROTECTIVE ACTIVITY
AbstractObjective: Natural substances extracted from plants have recently been considered as potential sunscreen resources because of their ultraviolet ray absorption in the UVA region and their antioxidant activity. In the present study, the UV protective effects of Camellia sinensisÂ leaves extract were evaluated by calculating Sun Protection Factors.Methods: Camellia sinensis leaves extract were prepared using soxhlet extraction apparatus. Camellia sinensis leaf extract incorporated vanishing cream was formulated and evaluated.Results: From sun protection factors, it was found that Camellia sinensis leaves extract can block ultra violet radiations. The evaluations indicates that the formulated cream were within the acceptable limit. Conclusion: Camellia sinensis leaf extract incorporated vanishing cream most promising formulation for photo-chemo protective activity.Keywords: Camellia sinensis leaves extract, Sun Protection Factors (SPF), Photo-chemo protective activity, Vanishing cream.
