In this study, creams were formulated based on the antioxidant potential of herbal extracts and evaluated. Different types of herbal creams were formulated from the ethanolic extracts of Glycyrrhiza glabra (root and stolons), Phyllanthus emblica (fruit), Lycopersicon esculentum (fruit), Curcuma longa (Rhizomes), Aloe vera (leaf ) and Citrus aurantium (outer peel) namely F1, F2, F3, F4. All the formulations showed good spreadability, good consistency and no evidence of phase separation. From the present study it can be concluded that it is possible to develop creams containing herbal extracts having antioxidant property and can be used as the provision of a barrier to protect skin.
