Various conc. of extract were taken for formulations (F1 to F3). Prepared formulations (F1 to F3) were evaluated for various parameters like colour, appearance, consistency, viscocity, pH, spreadability, stability along with anti-inflammatory activity by using model carageenan induce paw edema in rats.
